Simplified Managed Print Services with New Cloud-Based Subscription Plan for Hybrid Work Environments

With the transition to hybrid work, organizations are now required to adopt a new approach not just to where and how employees work, but also to their IT and print infrastructure. As a result, we’re seeing a rapid shift to cloud services.

In response to evolving these evolving dynamics, HP today announced a simple, worry-free printing solution with automatic supplies delivery, next business day service6, and embedded security and productivity solutions.  HP Managed Print Flex, a cloud-first Managed Print Service (MPS) subscription plan, helps businesses optimize costs by simplifying management, improving productivity, and delivering flexibility to scale or customize as business needs change.  This light-touch managed service makes it easy for businesses to worry less about printing and focus more effort and budget towards growing the business.

HP Managed Print Flex offers channel partners an especially compelling opportunity to grow predictable print revenue and profit without complexity and risk through upfront revenues on hardware, resell and commission options, ad-on solutions and service subscriptions, shorter sales discussions and more.

Securing the growing hybrid workplace

HP recently released its HP Wolf Security Rebellions & Rejections report, a comprehensive global study of office workers and IT decision makers to assess organizational cyber risk in an era of remote work. The report reveals that 91% of IT Teams feel pressure to compromise security and nearly a third (31%) of young workers are trying to bypass corporate security policies7HP Wolf Security is helping partners to secure the hybrid workplace by delivering a new breed of transparent and unobtrusive endpoint security. 

Call to action to restore the world’s forests and combat climate change  

Any company aiming to remain competitive and viable beyond this decade is redefining its business priorities around accelerated, expansive change that is also better for the planet. We must change the way we make and use products to address the climate crisis and protect nature to prevent the loss of critical ecosystems.

As part of our ambition to become the world’s most sustainable and just technology company, this week HP is proud to help bring Trees for Jane to the world as its founding partner. Announced this week, Trees for Jane is a new grass roots campaign inspired by one of the world’s most renowned environmentalists, Dr. Jane Goodall, who issued a call to action to help drive meaningful change by participating in the campaign for the protection, restoration and planting of trees to restore the world’s forests.

Aligned with the UN’s Decade on Ecosystem Restoration commitment, Trees for Jane is aimed at empowering everyone from  companies to individuals to plant and care for their own tree or trees in their backyards, rooftops or with local community groups. Alternatively they can support planting programs led by the best protectors of the forests: indigenous leaders, forest communities, and on-the-ground NGOs who have been working to stop deforestation and bring back lost forests. In partnership with Trees for Jane, HP is encouraging its global partner community to plant and grow trees of their own in support of climate action.
