HP Managed Print Services help customers tackle specific business goals – from cost and energy savings to increased efficiency.
HP is making it easier for global technology company 3M to use less energy, recycle more and reduce the impact of imaging and printing with the deployment of HP Managed Print Services. 3M has significantly reduced its imaging and printing energy consumption through device consolidation and print management. Embarq Corporation, a communications service firm, has reduced energy consumption, saved on printing costs and increased productivity with HP CM8060/8050 Multifunction Printers with Edgeline Technology. HP has expanded the capabilities of its carbon footprint calculator that was announced in May to include a full array of HP printing products as well as competitor products. The HP Carbon Footprint Calculator for printing allows customers to compare the carbon footprints of their existing printer fleet to that of a new, optimized fleet to understand how they can reduce their impact on the environment and reap energy savings.
Additionally, customers can compare any two devices (HP and/or competitor products) or build a custom fleet. The calculator assesses printer energy and paper use, the carbon impact of usage, and associated monetary costs based on the geographical energy assessments for 146 countries.
