PALO ALTO, Calif., March 12, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In the lead up to HP Reinvent, HP’s largest global partner event, HP Inc. unveiled a new line of smart printers specifically designed for small businesses. The new HP OfficeJet Pro series brings dramatically increased intelligence and breakthrough design with HP’s heritage of performance and reliability. It provides small business owners with a critical tool to achieve success.
“HP designed this series specifically for the small business owner who can’t possibly work harder, though the pressure to do so is constant given how closely their finances, livelihood and emotional well-being are tied to their business,” said Anneliese Olson, Global Head and General Manager of HP’s Home Printing Solutions. “With more than half of small business owners agreeing that their businesses cannot operate without a printer3 – we elevated this technology to perform more like a partner to help save time and ‘brain space’ so these entrepreneurs can focus on growing their business.”
HP began the reimagination of the HP OfficeJet Pro series, the best-selling business inkjet printer in the US4, more than three years ago. The company connected with thousands of small business owners in more than 20 countries, identifying areas where HP innovation and creativity could help each achieve their goals. These global conversations led to the reinvented HP OfficeJet Pro series launching today. Smart. Mobile. Secure.5 And up to 39% smaller than previous versions2.
“Every minute I’m not customer-facing hurts my business. When I’m in the back doing admin it directly impacts our performance – an absent owner is never successful,” said Aaron Cook, founder of Three Seat Espresso, a small business in New York City. “I’m always looking for ways to cut down my admin so I can focus on building my business. The new HP OfficeJet Pro series is saving me a lot of time, and ensures I spend more time with my customers every day.”

This will cover 24 months of service on a monthly $9.99 Instant Ink plan. Other plans are available for different lengths of time. After you have successfully registered your printer and created your HP Connected Account and Service Account, you must redeem your offer and select an Instant Ink printing plan. The Service begins when the offer is redeemed. You must redeem your prepaid value card with 6 months from printer set up or it will be void. Rollover allows unused pages in a month to be placed in a rollover account and then applied to pages in excess of your monthly allowance. The rollover account balance is limited to a maximum of twice the pages available in your plan. The ink balance will be decremented for any overage fees, resulting in less months of printing.
