Leveraging HP’s A3 MFPs to Enable Standardized Simplicity

HP’s A3 portfolio transforms today’s copier experience for ImageNet by offering advanced security features unmatched in the marketplace and affordable color via HP’s PageWide printing technology. With HP’s PageWide A3 technology, ImageNet has lowered its parts and labor costs dramatically because of the inherent simplicity of the print-engine design.

Longer Device Uptime via HP SDS

SDS helps ImageNet lower the cost of service, easily diagnose problems and deliver proactive service with big data and predictive analytics that ensure their customers’ fleets are optimized for their evolving needs.
