HP Inc. Ships World’s Most Advanced and Secure A3 Printers to South Africa

Powerful multi-function printers deliver world-class security and accelerate office of the future.

Johannesburg, South Africa —HP Inc. (NYSE: HPQ), the global leader in printing, Tuesday (06 June 2017) announced its new A3 multifunction printers (MFPs) are now available in South Africa. 

This next generation portfolio includes 34 SKUs and is designed to provide qualified channel partners the ability to offer higher levels of customisation that meet a wider range of customers’ printing needs. 

The new A3 portolio transforms today’s copier experience for customers and service professionals by offering advanced security features unmatched in the marketplace[i], affordable color via HP’s PageWide printing technology, and longer device uptime via HP’s Smart Device Services technology.

“Our customers wanted a robust portfolio of A3 MFPs with disruptive technologies and we believe we have achieved this with this range,” said Richard Stainforth, HP OPS Category Manager “We are now delivering on this promise by brining this range to South Africa. By doing so we are delivering on our mission to continue reinventing the market. Using the vast knowledge we’ve gained through our large-scale commercial printers, we streamlined our designs, improved print speeds and enabled higher-quality printing for a lower cost.”

HP has signed and on-boarded 4 Premier Partners (namely, Datacentrix, EOH, First Technology and TCM), representing the largest and fastest growing partners in South Africa. With the arrival of the A3 portfolio, partners now have new ways to grow revenue and margins in this $200million channel-led opportunity. The A3 MFPs will be distributed through local partner Tarsus.

Advancing security and protecting networks

Embedded with the 
most advanced security features available on the market, that are necessary to combat the growing number of threats targeting business MFPs, the new HP A3 printers are the world’s most secure enterprise MFPs in the market. Considering that modern MFPs now behave more like PCs, and the fact that less than two percent[ii] of the world’s hundreds of millions of them are properly secured, improving print security is a top priority for businesses. HP’s enterprise-class MFPs incorporate a comprehensive suite of security features that protect devices, data and documents, creating a layered securityapproach needed to combat advanced attacks.

Cloud-based innovation and reduced costs

HP’s portfolio of A3 MFPs – including three PageWide platforms and thirteen LaserJet platforms – benefit from the new, cloud-based proprietary service optimization platform, HP Smart Device Services (SDS). SDS delivers maximum device uptime by integrating advanced diagnostics, device specific troubleshooting and remote remediation capabilities into the industry leading MPS tool sets resellers use today.   

The HP PageWide Pro devices make color printing more affordable[iii], while simultaneously providing best-in-class print speeds[iv]. The single and multifunction devices have print speeds ranging from 35 ppm to 60 ppm (up to 80 ppm in General Office mode). PageWide technology is also more sustainable - consuming up to one-seventh[v] the energy of competing color laser machines in the same class while producing significantly less packaging waste associated with supplies and long life consumables.

HP’s A3 MFPs are available through qualified channel partners, or directly through HP. More information can be found here.
