HP unveils enterprise suite

Information Technology (IT) company, Hewlett Packard (HP) has unveiled an enterprise suite cutting across imaging and printing devices.

Marketing Manager, HP Nigeria, Ms Ijeoma Onyiuke in a press statement made available to Champion Infotel, said that it’s a broad expansion of its imaging and printing portfolio for large businesses.

She also said that the company’s latest offerings help enterprises manage, secure and simplify their imaging and printing environments and improve workflows to reduce costs and enhance productivity.

According to her, the new offerings include six HP LaserJet printers, an enterprise-class scanner for document capture, three access control printing solutions, four printing services and an accreditation, certification and test programme for HP’s software solution development partners.

“HP also extended the reach of its $300 million “What Do You Have To Say?” global interactive marketing campaign to target large businesses,” she noted, adding that the expansion, print and online advertising as well as interactive tools would showcase how 3M worked with HP to globally reduce its device count by 47 per cent and save more than $3 million in just two years.

Executive Vice President, Imaging and Printing Group, HP, Vyomesh Joshi, pointed out that HP has cultivated three factors essential to the global enterprise business; people, partnerships and portfolio.

“We have quadrupled the total contract value of HP Managed Print Services, bolstered our Print 2.0 strategy with the recent acquisition of Exstream Software and expanded our focus on imaging and printing solutions that help customers optimize their infrastructure, manage their environment and improve workflows,” Joshi said.

Stressing that the new HP solutions business partner accreditation, Certification and Test program (ACT) is the industry’s first to accredit partners’ internal processes, review their designs and certify their solutions.

The programme, Joshi pointed out, gives customers’ confidence in the quality and feature richness of the solution, while reducing their implementation time and support costs.

Through the ACT program, HP ensures that the partner’s internal development and support processes are pre-qualified using HP’s stringent criteria and that applications have been tested to work with HP devices and software.

As said by Joshi, partners in the programme must demonstrate consistent, high-quality delivery of specific solutions built on HP’s software development kits and the HP Open Extensibility Platform.

Ten partners, including Assentis, Capella Technologies, Captaris, Equitrac, Jetmobile, Kofax, MPI, Omtool, Pharos Systems and ReadSoft, are now accredited and have specific solutions in the certification process.
