HP Launch New HP OfficeJet 8040 Printer
Hewlett-Packard is launching the new HP OfficeJet 8040 all-in-one printer, which is designed to organise and digitise the small office. It can print, scan, copy, fax and connect via Wi-Fi or Ethernet and the HP OfficeJet 8040 has a built in hard drive with a terabyte worth of storage space, as well as access to data storage in the cloud. The printer organises and stores your documents on it’s hard drive or the cloud.
Utilising a cloud based organisation system called Neat, the HP 8040 can organise information such as scanned receipts and business documents. Neat’s software allows to scanned documents to be keyword searchable, and even extracts contact information from business cards.
There is also the chance to subscribe to HP Instant Ink. This is an optional extra in which HP will use web connectivity to detect when the ink is running low, and if subscribed to the service, will send post you the relevant ink cartridges.
“What we’re really bringing to market is a twist on the traditional all-in-one,” said Craig Stein, senior product manager at HP’s Inkjet and Printing Solutions division. “This product is designed with the home-based worker in mind. It’s for the person trying to build and manage their own business.”
The HP OfficeJet 8040 has an office productivity boosting range of features such as a 25 page automatic document feeder, double sided printing, a separate photo paper try and mobile printing.
In a statement, Manel Martinez, vice president of Experience Design and Marketing at HP said: “Our customers have told us they want to be able to work at home and on-the-go as efficiently and cost effectively as they do at the office.”
