HP Inc (HPQ) on Sep 12, 2016 introduced an expansive line of powerful A3 multifunction printers (MFPs) designed to disrupt the traditional $55 billion A3 copier category.
The company announced a definitive agreement to acquire Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd.’s printer business in a transaction valued at $1.05 billion, the largest print acquisition in HP’s history. Both announcements were made at the beginning of HP’s Global Partner Conference.
Highlights of HP’s A3 MFP technology breakthroughs include:
- 16 new next-generation HP PageWide and LaserJet platforms, bringing innovation to the copier segment
- World-class print security across devices, documents and data
- Advanced monitoring based on cloud and big-data analytics to predict service and supply needs
- Affordable color to drive adoption and economics
For decades, the copier category has lacked the disruptive innovation needed to drive service efficiency, protect against security breaches and deliver cost-effective color. HP is changing this with a next-generation portfolio of A3 MFP printing solutions that deliver the simplicity, reliability, serviceability, and security to transform business printing.
With launch and new channel programs, HP can now deliver the industry’s most advanced lineup of A3 MFP and A4 laser print solutions for the office that reflects the ongoing industry transition to everything as a service and contractual versus transactional sales.
“The complexity of traditional copiers makes repair and maintenance too inefficient for our partners and customers,” said Enrique Lores, president, Imaging & Printing, HP Inc. “By leveraging our superior printing technology, we can change the status quo with next-generation A3 multifunction printers that improve the overall customer and partner experience while also serving as a springboard for growth in managed print and document services. This is what we mean by reinventing printing.”
