HP Pioneers Enterprise Print Technology That Combines Manageability Features, Cost Savings

(Marketwire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) PALO ALTO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/24/14 -- HP (NYSE: HPQ) today unveiled the industry's first inkjet devices designed to meet the complex needs of today's large businesses.

The HP Officejet Enterprise Color MFP X585 and HP Officejet Enterprise Color X555 are powered by HP PageWide Technology, which takes proven, advanced commercial printing technologies and scales them to a new class of enterprise printers. The HP Officejet Enterprise series devices are enterprise ready with tested durability(1) to handle the rigorous printing demands of enterprise businesses -- printing at twice the speed(2) and at up to half the cost per page(3) of lasers.

"Never before has an ink-based device been fully capable of meeting the performance requirements that large organizations demand," said Dion Weisler, executive vice president, Printing and Personal Systems, HP. "CIOs and IT decision makers can be confident that the HP Officejet Enterprise series provides employees exceptional enterprise-grade security, fleet management and mobile printing options along with the fastest speed(2) and lowest total cost of ownership."(3) These devices come fully loaded with enterprise functionality and a familiar IT experience, including the same user interface as 12 million HP enterprise LaserJet printers. In addition, they support the latest HP LaserJet FutureSmart firmware and HP Open Extensibility Platform (OXP) so that enterprise software and solutions -- including HP Access Control and HP Capture & Route -- can be easily accessed through one button on the device.

The series also includes a scan-optimized HP Flow bundle, providing an on-ramp to the digitized world with faster and more accurate enterprise-grade scanning and document processing that speed the transition from a paper to digital office.

Building on the success of the HP Officejet Pro X devices with small to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) and distributed enterprises, the HP Officejet Enterprise series scales HP PageWide Technology to expand choice for enterprise customers. In fact, more than 60 billion pages have been printed using HP PageWide Technology.(4) In Managed Print Services environments, these devices deliver greater cost savings with the lowest cost per page in color,(5) and provides spot or accent color mode, which includes a small logo or line of hyperlink text, at the same price as black-and-white prints.

The HP Officejet Enterprise series prints at up to 72 pages per minute in general office mode, which is up to twice as fast as in-class competitive printers.(2) In addition, this series requires up to 84 percent less power while printing(6) and up to 25 percent less power by ENERGY STAR® TEC method(7) than competing laser printers.

Pricing and availability(8) The HP Officejet Enterprise Color MFP X585 and HP Officejet Enterprise Color X555 are expected to be available worldwide on April 1. The HP Officejet Enterprise Color MFP X585 pricing options range between $1,999 and $2,799, while the HP X555 pricing options range between $749 and $1,199.
