HP has announced the imminent release of a new series of intelligent A3 Printers, which look to provide streamlined print services for customers.

The HP LaserJet Managed A3 E800/E700 printers come with a variety of new innovations, utilising FLOW 2.0 features and customised shortcuts that allow easier editing through the control panel. There is also the addition of innovative Reverse and Retry technology, which detects and resolves double feed issues and paper jams aiding workflows to be kept at a premium.

Users will be able to harness the products 70ppm fast printing speed and 300 ipm duplex scan speed, powered by HPs custom designed quadcore processor. Autosensing technology also gives customers the opportunity to automatically save time with tone and colour management, two-sided document detection and automatic job separation features. The company also says the products have a sustainable focus.

The new innovations come at a time when many are starting to fully return to the office, and research shows a significant increase in demand for effective printing services.

To address the need, HP says its new portfolio of multi-function printers will support and inspire a productivity-focused hybrid workforce with intelligent solutions that can make work flow faster.

"As the hybrid work model continues to evolve, CIOs and IT departments have never been more challenged," says HP Inc. global head of print services and solutions Carles Farre.

"They need intelligent printers with advanced features that streamline work processes. The HP LaserJet Managed E800/E700 series offers our customers and channel partners a sleek, fully customisable and easily manageable portfolio to meet today's workplace and digitisation goals now and in the future."

A recent Morning Consult survey commissioned by HP also found that 67% of ITDMs believed privacy and security at work, especially when it comes to printer security, is becoming more complex. In light of this, HP says security is also a key focus of the new products. With HP Wolf Enterprise Security, the HP LaserJet Enterprise E800/E700 series protects, detects, and self-recovers. The devices also include HP Sure Start, Connection Inspector, Memory Shield active system monitoring and whitelisting.

The devices also come in modern designs, including five colour panels to match office decor and HP Flex Build for flexible configurations.

The HP LaserJet Managed E800 series is expected to be available in North America on August 1, with expanded availability expected in select countries in Europe in October. The series will continue to roll out to additional countries this year and next.
