Only Pay for What You Need
Every HP MFP Has a Printer-only Version

HP’s extensive and carefully designed portfolio caters for every requirement. By providing the option of either a printer or MFP variant of the same print engine, HP allows customers to choose an appropriate size for their output fleet without having to compromise. Furthermore, with printer versions costing up to a quarter of the price of their MFP equivalents, a customer can have the best of print, without paying for features they don’t need.

Shared Technology

By using shared engines, customers benefit in the following ways:

Shared cross-compatible consumables

Reducing the number of consumable items required to run the fleet, HP’s cross compatible consumables lower logistic running costs, with less items to stock and ship. In turn, this allows consolidation for the customer as the shared stock lowers the risk of toner-out situations.

Common drivers &
simplified technical support

HP’s shared print engine technology allows a unified strategy for driver deployment, simplifying technical support issues. Furthermore, by providing a standard engine across their printer and MFP ranges, this aids in developing greater expertise amongst our HP trained technical engineers.

Shared additional options:

With the availability of cross-compatible accessories (such as additional paper trays, cabinets, and multi-tray feeders), these items can be added to both an HP MFP and their printer equivalent as common options.

Matching Device Volume
Capability to Requirement

HP devices are conveniently classified into types dependent upon the monthly recommended page volume that can be printed. This is then mapped onto categories based on the number of staff likely to use the products.

Below is a table that illustrates HP’s range guidelines. Through offering an extensive selection, HP  enables the appropriate solution to be tailored to a customer’s usage requirements without compromise.

Configuration Flexibility

Once a decision is made whether to deploy a printer, or its multi function version, there are options available for adding additional paper trays and free-standing cabinets / paper decks that enable desktop or floor standing configurations for nearly all products.

The below graph visualises the selection process for a customised HP configuration.
