HP Unveils New Printing Innovations that Digitise the Office, Help Reduce Costs

BRACKNELL, UK, 30th October 2012 — HP today announced new HP Officejet Pro and HP LaserJet printers and content management solutions designed to redefine business and government printing by enabling customers to reduce costs, increase efficiency and digitise the office. These ground-breaking advancements in office productivity and affordability are a result of HP’s focus on product innovation combined with intelligent Autonomy solutions and a rich heritage in inkjet design.

The new offerings represent the largest upgrade to HP’s commercial printers in almost a decade, signifying the integration of intellectual property (IP) and innovation from across the organisation.

Our customers need innovative technology tailored to their workflow that is simple and effective, and helps them conduct business,” said Robert Dinkelacker, LaserJet and Enterprise EMEA Marketing Manager for HP. “HP is offering high quality document printing at unprecedented speed with superb performance to drive a new level of office efficiency.

HP Officejet Pro: Outstanding speed, quality, reliability and cost efficiency for SMBs
HP Officejet Pro X Series desktop printers and multifunction printers (MFP) deliver up to twice the speed at up to half the printing cost compared with colour laser printers in their class.(1, 2) This new class of devices is powered by HP PageWide Technology, the next-generation inkjet platform that sets a new standard for small work-team printing. It offers small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs), remote offices and branch offices high-quality documents at up to 70 pages per minute.(3)

HP LaserJet and cloud-based solutions digitise the office, simplify data access
The creation of vast amounts of business and government data means customers need a way to streamline how information is managed and accessed. The HP LaserJet Enterprise flow MFP M525c and HP LaserJet Enterprise colour flow MFP M575c offer higher-performance document processing and sharing. This provides an ideal on-ramp to the digitised world with premium dual-head scanning, HP everypage technology that ensures that pages are picked up one at a time, and data entry that speed the transition from a paper to digital office.

The HP flow MFPs can be integrated with content management solutions based on software from Autonomy, an HP Company, either on-site or via the cloud. By pairing HP printing technology with Autonomy solutions, customers can access, organise and leverage information in documents, audio, video, email and web pages. The HP Flow CM Professional(4) brings enterprise-class content management to growing businesses, with standard high-security features that also support leading banks, legal firms and stock exchanges and can be accessed from virtually anywhere through a standard browser. The cloud-based offering increases collaboration and productivity by easily capturing, indexing, storing, searching, retrieving and printing documents through a unique user-friendly interface designed with the customer in mind (5).

The HP Flow CM Professional and HP flow MFPs offer us an opportunity to improve employee productivity via collaboration and streamlined processes, allowing us to focus more time towards our customers and overall business,” said Robert Dinkelacker, LaserJet and Enterprise EMEA Marketing Manager for HP. “We see these offerings as having a very positive impact on our business—making it easy to scan documents, easy to find them in the cloud-based document management system and easy to print out information.

The HP Flow CM Enterprise is composed of a set of enterprise content management (ECM) offerings for large organisations that give instant access to vital information and help to integrate, simplify and automate processes to help reduce operating costs, improve employee productivity and assist with compliance efforts (6).

Office printing to increase productivity
Organisations of all sizes can address the need to increase productivity while reducing the complexity of their printing environment.
