19 Oct 10

HP has formed what it calls a strategic alliance with Toshiba to offer its customers a multi-vendor, managed print services approach.

Under HP Managed Print Services, the company will expand its product portfolio with select Toshiba multi-function devices for high-volume customers in the enterprise market in Asia Pacific and Japan only.

“We are indeed thrilled to cooperate with HP in the Managed Print Services business. The winners are undoubtedly our customers. They will greatly benefit from the solutions and products that are the outcome of our alliance”, said Kazuaki Ushiyama, Executive Vice President, Managing Director, Document Solutions Business Group, Toshiba.

John Solomon, Senior VP Imaging and Printing Group at HP, added, “We just wrote a new chapter in our MPS strategy for our customers today. Through our relationship with Toshiba, we can now offer a true multi-vendor advantage allowing our customers a consistent user experience across their printing environment.”

Along with the partnership with Toshiba, HP also unveiled a new line of colour printers it says will help businesses find better ways to produce high quality colour printed documents.

Following the June launch of its consumer ePrint enabled printers, HP has now introduced “the industry’s first” ePrint-enabled and web-connected printers for businesses. The new line-up includes a broad portfolio of ePrint enabled printers that spans across Officejet, LaserJet and Designjet categories.
