Computer manufacturer Hewlett-Packard has just signed a deal to acquire Printelligent in order to boost its printing services for business clients. The deal will allow HP to offer clients unified management of large numbers of copiers, printers and fax machines. Companies with hundreds of employees often outsource this job, so, with this new acquisition, we may see enhanced profits within organizations themselves.
Printelligent had clients in 728 U.S. cities and manages about a million printed documents each year. HP stated in 2009 that it would form a new group to ramp up its managed print services and start a program to aid business consumers to reduce printer hardware.
