Quick and convenient cartridge replenishment

There is never a convenient time to run out of ink or toner, and buying new cartridges can be a time-consuming hassle. As customers are looking to simplify day-to-day tasks, there is a demand for services that enable easy cartridge replenishment.  

HP is helping customers quickly and conveniently replenish Original HP cartridges from their preferred reseller with HP SureSupply:

  • HP SureSupply Express targets consumers and small businesses with up to 10 HP devices, facilitating ink and toner cartridge replenishment through one-touch ordering from iOS or Android smartphones or tablets.
  • HP SureSupply Auto-Delivery is for SMB customers with more than 10 HP or non-HP devices, providing the choice of approving each order or enabling automatic ink and toner cartridge replenishment.

HP expands Managed Print Services

HP MPS is expanding the HP Partner MPS program into new geographies and increasing multivendor support:

  • The geographic expansion of HP Partner MPS enables channel partners to sell HP MPS in new regions, expands and enhances the selling experience for partners already on board in existing regions, and brings greater efficiencies and print management to SMB customers around the globe. In addition, HP is extending the availability of HP Express Decision Portal, better equipping channel partners to provide proposals and quotes for cost-per-page pricing and other billing models, updated funnel reports, contract tracking, and account management.
  • With increased multivendor support capabilities for its MPS customers, HP is helping businesses more effectively optimize, manage and improve mixed fleet print environments through a single partner. This extension now provides advanced-level support for security, mobility, workflow and industry-specific solutions, as well as remote monitoring, for a larger number of non-HP devices.

Centralized fleet management for enterprises
