July 15, 2020 — Today HP Inc. introduced a suite of remote work offerings that enable partners to deliver progressive, integrated services-based print solutions. By building out capabilities that drive business outcomes, HP Amplify partners can ready their businesses to succeed in today’s environment while driving long-term recurring revenue streams.
“The COVID-19 pandemic is requiring companies to accelerate their shift to modern workstyles where where automation and adaptability reign supreme,” said David Prezzano, HP’s General Manager and Global Head, Print Services and Solutions Category, HP Inc. “Customers and partners are now looking to rapidly modernize their infrastructure and shift to service models to better manage distributed IT environments. No matter where a company is on the curve, HP has a suite of solutions to help them succeed.”
Scalable solutions for managing printer fleets remotely
Included in the offerings is HP Advance, a new integrated platform for managing HP Access Control Print, HP Access Control Scan, HP Mobile Connector1 and HP Direct Print from one admin console. By offering a modular system, enterprise customers can scale requirements easily with the switch of a license key. HP also announced that HP Command Center, a single tool for HP partners to deploy and manage cloud applications for their customers in many cases without going on-site, can now enable fleet onboarding, saving partners time while freeing up IT resources. The HP Workpath ecosystem, which enables workers to connect to cloud-based platforms directly from the MFP, has expanded rapidly since it launched in November 2019, with more than 275 reseller partners, 100+ apps available on the platform and thousands of apps deployed. In addition, HP has launched its revenue share model for HP Workpath, which simplifies access to third-party applications. By having the order and payment process transacted through HP Command Center, partners now have access to a much broader range of apps.
