HP Inc announced a refreshed OfficeJet Pro color-inkjet All-in-One family for small businesses, which features new ‘smart’ capabilities – including advanced custom shortcuts, as well as new enterprise-level security features, and new ease-of-use features. They are up to 39% more compact than previous OfficeJets, and feature a new external design. The new models provide print, copy, scan and fax, as well as a standard 35-page automatic document feeder.
Users can create custom shortcuts and eliminate steps involved in repetitive tasks with HP’s new Smart Tasks. For instance, users can create multi-step scan to cloud, email, and more workflows, and then initiate them with just a single click, or, for instance, create a workflow for scanning receipts with a smartphone and then automatically sync the receipts with business software such as Quick Books. Users can also convert documents scanned with their smartphones into editable, searchable documents using Smart Tasks. The new printers feature more reliable WiFi connectivity, for instance, when a printer detects when a connection is lost and then attempts to restore it.
Other improvements include: The OfficeJet Pro 9000 series features a platen with innovative slide-off glass for more easily retrieving documents. With the OfficeJet Pro 9023, a new output paper tray that prevents paper spillage by pausing the print job when the 250-sheet output tray is full.
Key among the new models upgrades is enhanced security – including security features typically only found with HP’s enterprise models. This includes: secure erase, with the printer erasing old documents and data; secure boot with self-healing, with the printer checking its code every time it boots up for any suspicious code and then solving the problem; and a control-panel lock.
