Vice President and General Manager
Enterprise Sales and
I’m happy to report that ImagePrint 2008 was a tremendous success. This
year, we had a record number of enterprise customers and channel and solution
partners in attendance. Not only was it a great turnout, but everything from
the breakout sessions to the keynotes to the solutions showcase were first-rate
and we received extremely positive feedback from our customers and partners
alike. I have the privilege to work with many smart and talented people at HP
and really saw my team engaging at all levels.
At every turn I was hearing from customers that this event made a difference
and that they are going to take immediate action on building their Print 2.0 plans,
which allow them to save money and improve their business processes just by
assessing their imaging and printing environment. For those already down the
path of optimizing
their infrastructure and/or managing
their environments, they wanted to extend their plans by improving
their workflows and streamlining their imaging and printing operations.
Thank you to everyone who attended this year’s event.

Proving that the innovative solutions from HP and our partners are being noticed by our customers, we saw significant interest in mid-August when HP announced five new solutions to our imaging and printing portfolio. These were created by HP Solutions Business Partners Troy, Safecom, Captaris, Standard Register and Kofax, working through our successful Solutions Business Partner (SBP) program, which includes more than 100 partners offering 300+ solutions to date. We’ve seen great benefits with this program so far, and the momentum keeps growing! Check out the media alert for more information.
This week, we’re excited to present a podcast that HP and HP Solutions Business Partner, Kofax, have created in response to our solutions announcement. The interview is held with David Oldfield, director of business development for Kofax, and my colleague, David Laing, HP director of worldwide solutions and services. The two discuss the ten-year business partnership we’ve had with Kofax and the benefits to the solutions announcements that were made last week. It’s so interesting to hear exactly what these solutions are able to do, and amazing to think how far we’ve come in adapting technology to everyday business needs that are often overlooked.
