HP Inc. Announces Highest-Volume A3 MFPs to Date, New JetAdvantage Solutions, Document Scanners
HP Inc. today announced two new A3 MFPs that are its highest-volume copier/MFPs to date, as well as new solutions designed for easier digital capture of documents, and new document scanners.
New A3 Copier/MFPs
HP is expanding its A3 copier/MFP portfolio (print and scan on up to 11″x17″ media), introducing two new MFPs for high-volume and managed print services (MPS) customers in need of high-volume imaging and printing. HP says the MFP S965dn and HP MFP S975dn are designed to support high-volume document workflows and light-production printing while saving up to 30 percent on printing costs.
The HP MFP S965dn prints at up to 65 ppm, while the HP MFP S975dn prints at up to 75 ppm, and both devices can scan up to 200 images per minute with single-pass dual-sided scanning. The new MFPs join HP’s MFP S900 family, which appear to be sourced from Sharp.
New JetAdvantage Solutions
HP has also updated its JetAdvantage solution portfolio with new offerings that it says make it simpler and less expensive to deploy scanner and MFP-based digital capture. Rather than invest in a complex, extensively featured solution, HP says the new offerings enable customers to deploy scanning faster with less upfront investment. The new HP JetAdvantage solution offerings include:
- HP Scan Configuration Service, which provides template-based scan flows for use with HP Embedded Capture. HP also introduced templates for healthcare and financial services, with additional industry templates to follow. These templates enable set up of repeatable digital-capture processes that support typical business functions for these industries. For healthcare, the supported processes are patient admission and patient discharge. The financial-services template supports processes for loan applications and account openings. According to HP, HP Scan Configuration Service leverages predefined templates to help reduce deployment time significantly for implementing scan flows, and lowers the cost for deploying custom scan flows, with pricing set at a one-time fee of $25 per device when bundled with the purchase and installation of HP Embedded Capture.
- HP Capture and Route is now available through a one-button implementation on HP Enterprise MFPs and Digital Senders. For customers that only need to deploy a single process to digitally capture and manage paper documents, the company says this option enables a simple, modular deployment, along with pricing flexibility.
New Scanners for Faster Document Distribution
HP introduced three new HP ScanJet devices that it says deliver faster scanning speeds.
- For small and mid-size businesses with general office document-scanning needs, the HP ScanJet Pro 2500f1 and the HP ScanJet Pro 3500f1 PC-connected flatbed scanners with automatic document feeders provide single-pass duplex scanning and scan-to-cloud. The HP ScanJet Pro 2500fn1 can scan up to 40 images per minute, while the HP ScanJet Pro 3500fn1 can scan up to 50 images per minute.
- For small and mid-size businesses and enterprise departments in need of a scanner with network connectivity, HP is announcing the HP ScanJet Pro 4500fn1, a flatbed scanner with an ADF that includes on-device sending and scanning, Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi direct connectivity, and single-pass duplex scanning of up to 60 images per minute. This scanner is available beginning January 7th, 2016.
- The new HP JetAdvantage Capture app is designed to make it easy to capture, store, and route digital files from a mobile device. The app also supports using mobile devices to initiate scanning and receive scanned documents from Wi-Fi-enabled HP MFPs and scanners, such as the HP ScanJet Pro 4500fn. This app is available beginning January 7, 2016.
