HP Printing and Personal Systems Group and its distributor Trident Corporation launched a series of new HP Officejet Pro inkjet printers designed to simplify printing for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) and large-scale enterprises in Sri Lanka.

Delivering on this need, the HP Officejet Pro 8600 series is compatible with features like mobile print and print management solutions to help business owners save time and money, allowing them to focus on their business.
