Speaking at the launch, DMS Electronics Assistant General Manager Infrastructure Solutions Udeni Weerabahu said that with 30 years of experience in the field and a long standing relationship with HP, DMS Electronics looks forward to helping organisations redesign their operational efficiency with total printing, scanning and documentation solutions from the new range of HP MFP printers. In addition, he said that with DMS’ having a high percentage of engineers within its workforce, customers can be guaranteed a high level of service and efficiency as well. With features that promise to extend printing reach with easily set up print, share and Ethernet wireless connectivity, the new product looks to simplify businesses and bring them into the new smartphone age as well. Fully smart phone enabled, the printers will aim to save time and money for organisations – translating into significant cost savings. Introducing the product, HP Market Development Manager Laserjet Enterprise Solutions Conrad Abraham revealed that research shows that 90% of smart phone users want to be able to print wirelessly and hence, HP has brought it to a reality with the new MFP printers. He said that tablets will out-ship notebooks in 2014 and that organisations need to be ready to engage with a smart phone enabled workforce that will look to organisations to play catch up in order to be efficient. Workforce solutions he added have shown to increase overall productivity in the workplace by an astounding 70%.  The new printers come in a range of models that are designed to be used by both home users and in a multi-user environment such as today’s large corporates.
