HP’s new product line of printers aims to provide the right solution for your business
Since introducing its first laser printer in 1984, HP has come a long way in reinventing the printing process. Today is no different, with this new line of printers. According Enrique Lores, president of HP Inc.’s Imaging and Printing division, HP is “reinventing printing for every business – large or small”. Lores says it’s about allowing its customers to select the right print solution for their business, not their budget.
Let’s take a look at their new portfolio of printers available for business use.
HP PageWide is a print head technology created by HP for large format printers and web presses. Since it’s development this technology has delivered more than 140 billion high quality digital pages. In early 2017, HP is planning to use this technology to reinvent the copier market by introducing A3 single function printers and multifunction printing devices.

This new portfolio will be available at retailers and through select channel partners. One thing to note is that the new HP PageWide extends the amount of managed devices created for contractual channel partners and managed print services engagements. This allows HP channel partners to provide greater value and customer satisfaction with contractual HP PageWide printers. Benefits include: lower cost of operation with HP’s highest capacity supplies, a three-year print head warranty, and integration with HP JetAdvantage Management and third-party tools.
HP OfficeJet Pro and LaserJet Pro
During the past decade HP was able to offer quality ink-based colour printing at up to 50 per cent lower cost per page than laser printers. Today, they are taking this a few steps further with the OfficeJet Pro 8000 series. This new product line features the HP Print Forward Design that provides greater productivity with high speeds for two-sided printing and scanning with laser-like paper handling. This series also include enhanced security features, mobile printing and HP Instant Ink delivery program.

The LaserJet line is fast, while at the same time provides print shop document quality. It offers good value on black-and-white printing and is equipped with the original HP Toner cartridges with JetIntelligence technology.

Secure Managed Print Services
With security being a top concern for most, if not all businesses, HP is introducing a new Managed Print Service (MPS) which is focused on security. This service provides security experts with the ability to help customers secure their print environment with the strongest protections available in the industry and then maintain security over time to address evolving threats and compliance requirements.
This service includes:
- Self-healing capabilities
- Security software to detect threats, protect, monitor and manage the printer fleet
- Data encryption to better protect confidential data
- Reporting for regulatory and compliance audits
- Security expertise to co-develop a comprehensive print security plan
HP has also updated their JetAdvantage Security Manager software, which is the only policy-based printer security compliance solution in the industry to enable greater visibility into what firmware updates have been applied across the HP printer fleet. This feature enables customers to see which of their printers are protected by HP’s advanced printer security.
