HP Unveils Imaging, Print Solutions

The print solutions are part of the Print 2.0 strategy, which makes printing, scanning or copying documents easier.

Hewlett-Packard unveiled new vertical enterprise imaging and printing solutions on Nov. 15, aimed at the financial services and public sector markets, as part of its Print 2.0 strategy to make it easier to choose to print, copy or scan a document.

HP unveiled the HP Compliant Document Capture for Financial Services, adding audit trail and archive features to comply with Securities and Exchange Commission and European Union regulations, and the HP Document Capture Solution for Evidence of Identity, which adds the same features intended for government agencies issuing and reviewing identity documents like passports and drivers licenses.

The solutions reflect the vendors drive to vertically-tailored solutions as part of the Print 2.0 strategy announced in June, according to Todd Gregory, marketing manager of the Imaging and Printing group, for HPs Global Enterprise Business.

The announcements came at ImagePrint 2007, Nov. 14 and 15 in Phoenix, the vendors annual conference for its Imaging and Printing Group enterprise, customer and partners.

Document Capture for Financial Services, is a version of HPs Compliant Document Capture for SEC Regulation 17a solution announced earlier this year, bundled with HP multifunction printers and HP Scanjet scanners plus software and service including HP partner solutions Kofax Document Exchange Server and Jetmobile SecureJet user authentication. Document Capture for Evidence of Identity is a similar bundle.

The solutions use tagging and archiving to store, manage, retrieve and return documents such as financial transactions and identity cards, Gregory said.

Both new products will be available starting in January.
