Improve flexibility with new printing and scanning products

The HP LaserJet Pro 400 M401 is HP's new web-connected mono single-function laser printer, and the HP LaserJet Pro 400 MFP M425 is the company's first web-connected mono laser multifunction printer (MFP).

The high-quality color HP LaserJet Enterprise 500 color MFP M575 and the black-and-white HP LaserJet Enterprise 500 MFP M525 feature a larger 8-inch, full-color touchscreen with HP Quick Sets for one-touch workflows.

The MFPs also support HP ePrint,(2) Apple AirPrint(3) and Google CloudPrint. HP Auto-On/Auto-Off Technology automatically turns the printer off when not in use, resulting in reduced energy use.(4)
HP printers are designed to work with Original HP supplies as a finely tuned print system that delivers high-quality text and true-to-life color documents with every page printed. Designed for optimal performance with minimal environmental impact, Original HP supplies offer superior reliability, which reduces the need to reprint, and many cartridges are made from recycled plastic.
The HP Scanjet Enterprise 7000 s2 has a compact desktop design with HP Precision Feed and AccuPage technologies to offer flawless and efficient performance, while the ability to "Scan to Sharepoint" and "Scan to Cloud" extends its capabilities beyond the desktop.
Manage information with HP Workflow Solutions
New mobile printing solutions include HP ePrint Software,(5) which enables PC printing to HP ePrinters at home or at work, and to HP ePrint Public Print Locations (PPL) when workers are on the go. The new HP Printer Control app enables users to manage device settings and supplies, and print, copy and scan wirelessly to the new HP ePrint-enabled printers. HP ePrint App for Apple and BlackBerry® enhances and replaces the popular HP ePrint Home & Biz App to enable users to more easily print from a smartphone or tablet, and receive intelligent recommendations on where to send prints.(1) The Universal Email Address for HP ePrint PPLs allow HP's large PPL network to publish and promote a single email address for mobile print jobs. Any end user connected to the internet with an email-capable device can send a print job to the email address and retrieve the print job at any of the PPLs.
To simplify workflows, HP Capture and Route provides a cost-effective way to digitize information so customers can find and retrieve documents faster than ever before. The HP Capture and Route solution enables users to easily convert paper documents into a variety of digital formats -- including Microsoft® Word .doc and .docx, JPG, PDF, RTF and TIF -- making it one-button simple to route information where it is needed.
