HP Helps Small and Midsize Businesses Save Time and Money

As part of the HP Eco Solutions program, the three new printers are ENERGY STAR® qualified and use significantly less energy than competitive laser printers(7) based on several key environmental attributes listed on the HP Eco Highlights label.

HP also announced the new HP Scanjet N6350 Networked Flatbed Document Scanner ($899),(8) a simple-to-use, versatile page scanner with integrated networking expected to be available for purchase worldwide in June.

New collaborations and solutions drive growth

HP is providing value-added resellers (VARs) and channel partners with new revenue-generating opportunities by expanding its cloud computing services through agreements with Cobweb and Cast Iron.

  • Cobweb, a leader in hosting services, enables VARs in the United Kingdom to offer private-label Microsoft® solutions via the cloud to SMBs. The pay-as-you-go model allows SMBs to efficiently run their business with fewer resources.
  • Cast Iron Systems enables SMBs in the United States to integrate software-as-a-service applications with existing infrastructures already running applications and databases.
  • Measuring just over 1-inch thick and starting at 2.33 pounds, the HP Mini 1101 Notebook PC, introduced yesterday, is an ideal companion PC for SMBs and frequent business travelers. The Mini 1101 offers a 10.1-inch diagonal standard or optional high-definition (HD) LED widescreen display, a keyboard that is 92 percent the size of a standard notebook PC keyboard, and a built-in webcam and microphone. Mobile SMB workforces can choose optional integrated HP Mobile Broadband, which allows access to the Internet, corporate intranets, email and critical business information in more places around the world.
  • The recently introduced HP ProBook s-series is ideal for small businesses seeking the best combination of business features, functionality and value. The series incorporates a choice of finishes, a mercury-free design and HD LED backlit displays in a variety of screen sizes.(13) It also includes a set of professional innovations previously found only on higher-priced models. To help keep energy costs down, the portfolio holds an Electronic Products Environmental Assessment Tool (EPEAT®) gold rating and is ENERGY STAR qualified.

Special financing

To help SMBs deploy their technology solutions while also conserving capital, HP Financial Services is offering flexible leasing and financing options. Recommendations from HP Financial Services on how SMBs can make the most of their technology budget are available in the white paper “ Leasing helps small, midsized companies s-t-r-e-t-c-h their IT investment dollars.”

Additional information about HP’s new offerings to help SMBs thrive in challenging times is available in an online press kit at www.hp.com/go/smallbusiness2009.
