Demo: HP OfficeJet Pro 8740 All-In-One Printer

HP’s new line of OfficeJet 8700 printers targets partners operating in the SMB space and promises increased productivity with a lower price tag overall.

’For those small businesses that have always complained, ’I want to save money and save paper,’ our partners can now offer them a solution like this,’ said Product Manager Larry Tracy, who gave CRNtv a hands-on demonstration of the 8740 model.

The OfficeJet 8740 features a top face-down output, which means it can handle two sheets of paper at the same time, saving both time and money. HP predicts the design saves users 50 percent per page.

The printer leverages printing techniques from the HP LaserJet, ’so these printers can run much more rapidly,’ said Tracy. Tracy added that users can copy on both sides of paper rapidly as well.

’This great new innovation for small business and customers that need remote office printers, this is a great new set of features,’ he said.

For partners doing fleet management, the larger-size cartridges used by the 8740 mean less frequent replacements and seamless management.

Another feature of the 8740 is the ability to print directly from a USB drive, which comes in handy particularly for HP partners looking to demo the printer to potential sales leads.
