Among the new products from the OEM are what it calls the “world’s first mobile all-in-one printer” as well as updated programmes for its MPS offerings.
In total, 15 new imaging and printing products, services and solutions were launched by HP, which stated that the products are designed to “enable businesses of all sizes to capture, connect and communicate more securely and efficiently”.
