HP Provides Jump-start for Canvera’s Success

PALO ALTO, Calif. -- HP today announced that Canvera, India’s first nationally branded professional imaging service provider, has selected HP solutions and services for delivering consistent, high-quality printing services to customers.

The agreement with HP Financial Services has helped Canvera acquire the wide range of high-performance technology and equipment needed for its launch. Since its inception, Canvera has looked to HP Financial Services to help finance solutions that have spanned server architecture to its photography output platform. This includes HP Indigo presses, HP Designjet printers, HP ProLiant servers, HP business desktop PCs and HP notebook PCs.

By working with HP Financial Services, Canvera is able to reserve capital for strategic purposes, enabling successful execution of other important initiatives, such as sales and marketing programs.

“HP Financial Services has served as a key enabler in allowing us to deploy the state-of-the-art technology equipment we need to remain competitive,” said Dhiraj Kacker, chief executive officer, Canvera. “By working with HP, we are able to consistently provide our customers with the high-quality imagery they demand.”

Growing from a single office located in Bangalore, India, Canvera now operates out of eight locations with more than 500 employees.

HP Financial Services helps clients develop long-term IT investment strategies that provide flexibility and agility as they evolve to an Instant-On Enterprise. In a world of continuous connectivity, the Instant-On Enterprise embeds technology in everything it does to serve customers, employees, partners and citizens with everything they need, instantly.
