HP Makes More SMB Moves

As part of a “Total-Care” push, Hewlett-Packard continues to expand its SMB product portfolio for channel partners. While the moves aren’t groundbreaking, they could provide numerous upsell opportunities for VARs and managed service providers. Here’s a super-quick rundown…

According to Kathy Chou, VP of Worldwide Small and Midsize Business Strategy at HP:  “SMBs are the pulse of the economy, and HP is partnering with SMBs to provide a boost as the economy rebounds…”

Hooray. The new line-up is geared to be cost-effective, aimed to optimizing new or existing resources and all spiffy and “green” for your energy concerns. There’s two new desktops with related displays, new virtual collaboration work environments, a new printer, and some tweaks on storage and network solutions.

The three takeaways that seem worth your time are:

  • HP Virtual Rooms: allows users to connect with business contacts, employees or family at any time.

In order to help VARs accelerate customer purchases, HP is offering financing on many of the purchases.
