Hewlett-Packard has expanded a line of products to make it easier to work from home. The company also announced new scanners and software targeted to telecommuters.
HP will offer a managed print services contract that lets employer-approved teleworkers receive technical support, a multifunction printer (MFP) and up to three months’ worth of supplies.
The teleworker bundle includes the HP Officejet Pro 8500 All-in-One series printer and the HP LaserJet CM1312nfi and M1522n MFPs. The products are well-suited to teleworkers because of their low cost of ownership, low energy consumption and compact sizes, the company said.
HP also has announced two enterprise scanners: the ScanJet Enterprise 7000n Document Capture Workstation and the ScanJet Enterprise 9000 Sheet-Feed Scanner.
The 7000n attaches directly to a network via an Ethernet connection, while the 9000 scanner ensures secure archiving of hard-copy documents, the company said. Both scanners are Energy Star-qualified.
The company has also expanded its series of large-format printers and offers several new devices, including the HP Designjet T1120 SD-MFP, T1120 HD-MFP and 4520 HD-MFP. The product lineup can save organizations as much as 30 percent on large-format printing costs, HP said.
The company is also launching HP Web Jetadmin enterprise software, which lets administrators manage large-format printing devices and configure them securely and remotely as part of a printing fleet, the company said.
