Who Are HP?
HP is one the oldest names in computer and IT support, having been founded in 1939 and famous for delivering many affordable IT solutions, from HP printers to scanners and fax facilities.
However, the company split in 2015 into two seperate companies: HP inc provides business and commercial printers, while Hewlett Packard Enterprise offers advanced Cloud and network solutions. As a HP reseller, MiDs4d offers products from the former.
What Do They Offer?
It can be argued that HP are at the forefront of business IT solutions when it comes to their hardware. Alongside printers and scanners, a typical HP multifunction device will also save digital copies, print remotely and even offer fax and email support, depending on the model.
Furthermore, combined with included software, HP ensures all needs are answered for. Need to print formal envelopes? There are HP print management solutions for that. Need something bigger than A4? A HP large format printer is exactly what you need.
It’s not just inkjet or toner based printing, either. There are a range of high end HP plotters, for example, which are widely used in various CAD industries, from design to architecture. As such, HP has a device built from the ground-up for any need, so every business can get the exact support required.
What About Consumables?
Of course, it’s often said a printer is only as affordable as its ink cartridges. Fortunately, HP printers are very sustainable, especially when looking at their budget friendly options. HP ink cartridges can be more expensive than toners, but this is to be expected.
However, MiDs4d also offers a recycling scheme with all of our products and partners. So, if you want more affordable HP toner cartridges and inks, as well as helping the environment, our ongoing support serves to keep the costs down on consumables.
