Now small to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) can have it all when it comes to printing – ease of use, superior performance, high-quality printing, scanning and copying, resource-saving features and a low cost per page – thanks to the new HP OfficeJet 276dw from distributor Drive Control Corporation (DCC). The OfficeJet Pro 276dw Multifunction Printer (print, copy, scan, fax and web) has been designed with the SMB in mind with work teams that need a professional-quality, low cost per page MFP with wireless/mobile connectivity, plus industry-leading management tools and extensibility solutions.

“One of the most appealing features of the OfficeJet Pro 276dw is its low cost per page printing. Users can save up to 50% on printing costs, compared to laser printers. HP original inks not only deliver superior prints, they also offer a high yield of up to 2300 pages in black or 1500 pages in colour, all from a single cartridge, representing excellent value for money and affordability,” says Caron de Fortier, HP Printers & Supplies Division Manager at DCC.

The OfficeJet 276dw is also easy to set up, easy to use and easy to manage, thanks to integration tools and remote management through HP Web JetAdmin. The HP Imaging and Printing Security Centre ensures that print security can be easily managed without the need for specialist skills, and the printer is scalable enough to move with your business as it grows, protecting your technology investment.

“The OfficeJet 276dw also features tools that help users to save time, streamline workflows and simplify basic office tasks. Print tools and handy business apps can be accessed right from the printer, using the intuitive control panel and large full colour touch screen, and a monthly duty cycle of 1500 pages ensures this printer can handle even the most demanding of SMB workgroup environments,” de Fortier adds.

Automatic double-sided printing, copying and scanning helps to save time, and paper, and an optional paper tray allows users to load up to 500 sheets at once. Wireless connectivity and an Ethernet port means that the MFP can be added to both wired and wireless networks with ease, and built-in Wi-Fi means that the printer can be shared between various devices, even without network access or a router. HP ePrint capability extends this functionality to smartphones and tablets, allowing users to print from mobile device via the web, from practically anywhere in the world. A USB port enhances connectivity, allowing users to print directly at the printer with a flash or thumb drive.

“In addition to productivity, performance and functionality, the OfficeJet 276dw also conserves resources without sacrificing performance. Print settings can be customised to save energy, and energy consumption can be optimised to use up to 50% less than colour lasers. Automatic double-sided printing helps to save paper, and HP’s intelligent packaging uses fewer resources and can be recycled. Ink cartridges too can be easily recycled at no cost using the HP network of Planet Partners,” de Fortier concludes.

The HP OfficeJet Pro 276dw printer is available immediately from resellers and leading retails for a recommended retail price of R3 899.00 including VAT.
