HP today announced five new printing solutions – ranging from check printing
security to document capture – to address the security and manageability
needs of its enterprise customers.

HP, together with its solution partners, enables customers to manage, secure
and improve workflow in their imaging and printing environments. The new
solutions, developed through the HP Solution Business Partner (SBP) program,
are designed to help customers maximize efficiency and improve business
"HP and its partners continue to build a portfolio of solutions focused on
our customers' top business concerns," says John Johasky, vice-president and
GM: worldwide sales & services of the Imaging and Printing Group at HP.
"Today's announcement addresses the growing demand for expertise and
technology to improve imaging and printing efficiency, while still enabling
customers to mitigate the rise of printing costs and the risks associated
with security and compliance."
HP, along with partners Troy, SafeCom, Captaris and Standard Register, is
delivering the following solutions that address business needs from security
to manageability:
* HP Check Printing Security Solutions from HP and Troy Group are ideal for
banking and finance industries. Design features help safeguard the printing
device while meeting stringent check processing standards to avoid check
fraud. Solutions are also available to reduce fraud with documents,
including school report cards, prescriptions and birth certificates.
* HP Imaging and Printing Job Accounting and Security Solutions from HP and
SafeCom allow customers to control printing expenses and color use, protect
confidential documents, and decrease environmental impact by reducing paper
and toner consumption through enforced printing and copying policies, such
as duplex printing and non-color printing, and user authentication
* The HP LAN Fax Solution from HP and Captaris(1) combines the Captaris
RightFax offering with HP multifunction printers (MFPs) and digital senders.
Instead of using traditional stand-alone fax machines, users can now send
and receive faxes easily from an MFP, digital sender or PC, reducing the
number of devices and supplies required for the office.
* The HP Print Optimization Solution from HP and Standard Register enables
organizations to control rising printing costs with an integrated print
management system. The solution monitors and reports usage data and offers
interactive messaging to educate users on the cost of printing by suggesting
or enforcing the routing of print jobs to the most cost-efficient output
device based on set rules.
The HP Document Capture Solutions from HP and Kofax provide flexible
document capture tools that enable customers to automate distribution and
information exchange, transforming document capture into a competitive
advantage. The solution helps enterprises mitigate risks with a system
designed to meet privacy, security and compliance regulations.
The workflow solution complements the HP Access Control Printing Solutions
portfolio, providing authentication, audit and accounting capabilities and
enabling enterprises to improve and simplify document capture and exchange,
leading to new efficiencies in paper-based workflows.
In addition, the recently announced HP Scanjet N9120 Document Flatbed
Scanner is now certified with document capture solutions from three HP
Solutions Business Partners: Kofax, Omtool and ReadSoft. Customers can
easily integrate document management applications and improve productivity.
The scanner, now available for purchase, is ideal for users looking to
enhance productivity, efficiency, document handling and reliability.
