acknowledgement from BLI, coming a full year after the product hit the streets
and started to aggressively capture copier pages for HP, is especially
gratifying. A few quotes from the
CM8060 Color MFP proved itself admirable in BLI’s testing, separating itself
from the pack with innovative features not regularly seen on its copier MFP
competitors for a price that is the lowest of competitive models. Featuring a
very large, well-labeled color touch-screen control panel, the CM8060 Color MFP
also raises the bar for ease of removing misfeeds, providing live-action video
on the control panel and LEDs throughout the device to guide users.
HP CM8060 Color MFP takes leaps and bounds forward in regard to being an
environmentally friendly machine as well. Whereas the photoconductors used by
competitive models have to be disposed of, with the HP CM8060, the imaging unit
is the print head. The device also ships with no Styrofoam and no cardboard.”

areas, through a series of rigorous evaluations.

HP’s Edgeline MFPs in April of 2007, we’ve racked-up considerable acclaim for
its high-performance and innovative design. The HP CM8060 Color

helping solve a customer’s business problem. The best type of acclaim is when
our innovation adds value – whether it’s a breakthrough in print quality and
total cost of ownership, or a software solution that streamlines a billing

Greetings! My worldwide travels on behalf of HP’s enterprise imaging and printing business continue. Today, I’m in the port city of Shanghai – the largest city in the People’s Republic of China, on the banks of the Yangtze River Delta.
After a successful HP press and channel event last week in Budapest, I traveled from Budapest to Shanghai (didn’t the Mongol army of Genghis Kahn make a similar trip in about 1220?) Luckily, I’ve been able to rely on modern transportation and comfortably arrived here for our pan-Asia Pacific Enterprise Advisory Council and press event.
The advisory council brought together customers from Australia, Indonesia, India, Malaysia, and Singapore. Our enterprise customers gave us great feedback at the two-day meeting and reinforced that HP is on the right track with our “Print 2.0 Alternative Thinking About Printing” strategy. They also agreed with their peers from the Americas and Europe that HP’s environmental stewardship – and our work to support their commitment to the environment -- while it has always been important, is increasingly timely and topical. Many customers are taking steps to reduce their carbon footprint by setting their devices to duplex printing, sleep mode in low use times, and are recycling their toner and ink supplies. This was great to see. Everything helps. The customers also reinforced that our solutions, services, and new MFPs are hitting the mark, but they want to see even further leverage with the rest of HP. Good feedback indeed.
By the time this blog entry gets posted, we’ll have already kicked-off our press event here in Shanghai. We are expecting 125 members of the press to join us for a two day event where we will unveil the solutions we introduced last week in Budapest. We are excited to host the press and communicate our continued progress on Print 2.0.

The Experience Center, where the delegates interact with the new smart devices and solutions, is always one of my favorite parts of HP events.

In addition to the new products launched at the event, delegates also had the opportunity to see the HP CM 8060 Color MFP with Edgeline Technology, a remarkable color MFP that HP launched last year to rave reviews. And just this week, Buyers Laboratory issued its final testing report about the HP CM8060 where it garnered a superb rating of “Recommended".
And rounding out the live blog from this event, I would like to highlight the launch of HP’s Accreditation, Certification and Test Program (ACT). The program is the industry’s first to accredit partners’ internal processes, review their designs and certify their solutions. It’s important for our customers because it can give them confidence in the quality and feature richness of solutions, while reducing their implementation time and support costs. My colleague John Johasky discusses the ACT program in this podcast.
Through the ACT program, HP ensures that the partner’s internal development and support processes are pre-qualified using HP’s stringent criteria, and that applications have been tested to work with HP devices and software. Using the HP Open Extensibility Platform, development partners can customize their software to work across the entire fleet of HP MFPs.
I’ve enjoyed sharing my perspective on the event and especially telling the stories of how customers are using HP solutions and services to reduce costs, increase marketing effectiveness, and improve workflow.
