PALO ALTO, Calif., Aug. 25, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Today at the HP Amplify™ Executive Forum, HP Inc.’s (NYSE: HPQ) annual partner roadshow, the company introduced HP Instant Ink for Small Business and Introducing the new LaserJet Pro with HP+ to simplify technology management for small business owners. With a single Instant Ink account, small businesses automatically receive device-specific supplies (ink or toner) for multiple devices in multiple locations. Combined with the advanced features of the new LaserJet Pro with HP+, an Instant Ink subscription can help small businesses save time and money, simplify cartridge recycling, and protect and restore forests around the world.

“No one listens to small business needs and responds like HP. Entrepreneurs need to print effortlessly, from setup to ordering supplies to monitoring security,” said Xavier Garcia, global head of print hardware systems at HP. “HP Instant Ink for Small Business and the new LaserJet Pro with HP+ is an intuitive printing system that requires minimal administration, so small business owners can focus their time and energy on growing their business.”

Address the needs of small businesses

To navigate an increasingly challenging economy and position themselves for long-term growth, small business owners need new processes, ways of working and technology to increase their productivity. According to a survey of small business owners conducted by Morning Consult, over 80 percent of small businesses rely on printing to run their business. Still, 55 percent say they don’t have time to manage the technology.

One small business owner surveyed said, “Managing printers is not a very efficient use of time or energy.” A second business decision-maker surveyed said, “Everything is becoming more and more automated. Perhaps this could also be applied to printers. It would be nice if the machines could order their own ink and toner.”

Respondents say they need a multifunctional printer that’s easy to set up and effortless to manage, with automatic ink and toner cartridge reminders and the ability to seamlessly pair multiple devices.
