HP’s innovation in multi-function printers (MFPs) was recognized by IDC Research, which named HP a leader in the latest IDC MFP MarketScape report titled US Shared, Networked Multifunction Peripherals for the Distributed Office 2012 Vendor Analysis published today. IDC specifically noted HP’s established brand and print market leadership within the IT channel and with direct customers.
According to the new IDC report, “HP’s potential in this market cannot be ignored as the company is firmly positioned as the industry’s de facto standard for print solutions and technologies, ranging not only on the products, but also all technologies related to print (e.g. network printing) and where the market is heading (e.g. technologies to enable cloud, web and mobile print).”
We see IDC’s ranking of HP’s strategy and feature capabilities among the top scores of all market participants as a reflection of our ongoing innovation initiatives such as the Converged Cloud announcement we made earlier this summer. That announcement featured our new ePrint Enterprise mobile printing technology, among a host of other cutting-edge cloud-based offerings from HP.
IDC also notes that HP has “demonstrated strengths in all of the key factors identified to IDC to ensure MFP market success, including a broad product portfolio, solid market share, support for a wide range of customer targets, pricing models that fit customer requirements and a solutions/service model to drive value-added differentiation.” Our latest MFP offerings, including WebJetAdmin, Jet Direct, and ePrint Enterprise have enabled HP to maintain its role as industry leader by providing software and solutions that integrate wired and wireless printers/MFPs, offer mobile printing support, streamline customer work flows, and help manage printer capabilities.
