New HP Officejet 8040 All-in-One with Neat Cloud Service, Instant Ink Eligibility
Hewlett-Packard and partner the Neat Company today announced a new HP Officejet color inkjet All-in-One with built-in Neat cloud-based Smart Organization System for cloud-based document storage.
Designed for home and small offices, HP says the new Officejet 8040 with Neat e-All-in-One ($399.99 estimated street price) provides all the features of an HP e-All-in-One plus a three-year subscription to the Neat cloud-based document-organization system, enabling users to scan and digitize paper documents, then store them in the Neat cloud-based system, where users can organize them, and since the system’s Web-based, users can then access their stored documents from anywhere via most Apple and Android mobile devices. Users can scan and capture, and then organize, documents such as receipts, business cards, etc. HP says files are safeguarded and data is keyword- searchable and can be exported into applications such as Microsoft Excel, Quicken, and TurboTax. The three-year Neat subscription includes up to 45 pages of OCR-searchable scans per month; after that, monthly fees apply.
The HP Officejet 8040 is also eligible for HP’s Instant Ink ink-cartridge subscription program, which HP says can save customers up to 50 percent on Original HP ink, as well as save them time, as ink is delivered to their door before they need it. See here for more on Instant Ink. Plans begin at $2.99 per month for printing up to 50 pages.
Neat Software requires a Neat account setup, printer registration, hpconnected.com account, Internet connection, and Neat mobile app download.
The HP Officejet 8040 with Neat e-All-in-One also provides HP’s broad range of mobile solutions — from simple mobile setup, to printing from smartphones and tablets. HP now also provides in-OS mobile printing, which it says is the easiest way to print from a mobile device. With in-OS mobile printing, users simply select a file, choose a printer, and select print. The Officejet 8040 also lets users manage it from a smartphone or tablet with the All-in-One printer remote. There’s also NFC tap-and-print mobile printing from NFC-enabled mobile devices.
