Focus On: What’s New Epson devices integrated into OpenMPS TD SYNNEX has integrated Epson A3 office print devices into its OpenMPS managed print service. This means that partners will be able to offer customers automated cartridge replacement and onsite warranty cover and the positive energy and waste saving benefits of Epson’s heat-free inkjet technology, from day one. OpenMPS empowers partners to manage their end customers’ existing printing devices – whether they are deployed in the workplace or the home. Partners can set-up automated shipments of supplies and provide monitoring of print devices through a simple app that customers can install on their networks and/or client devices. They can also offer onsite warranty cover with print devices, and this will now be fully integrated and available to customers that purchase Epson A3 devices from partners. Richard Wells, Head of Office Print Sales, UK and Ireland at Epson said: “The OpenMPS programme is a fantastic opportunity for making print services more accessible and cost-effective for businesses, and together with Epson’s expert Solutions+ programme, offers our partners another great asset for stimulating business growth. We are excited to be a part of this platform and to be bringing Epson heat-free inkjet solutions to the wider IT reseller community, giving them better access to reduced energy consumption, fewer consumables, and less user intervention compared with equivalent laser technology.” HP expands latex range The new HP Latex 630 printer series makes white ink technology available to print service providers of all sizes. White ink allows users to produce a more impactful range of signage and décor jobs with stunning image quality and colours that jump off the page. HP’s Latex portfolio also allows firms to offer more sustainable printing services with water-based latex inks that give off negligible chemicals or odours; UL ECOLOGO and EPEAT environmental certifications; and carton-based cartridges that reduce plastic by using 100% recycled and recyclable cardboard containers, as well as recycled plastics from HP’s closed-loop process - including post-consumer beverage bottles.
