What I love about this industry is that it never gets boring. This week, HP Inc. and Xerox Corporation have announced an expansion of the companies’ existing business relationship. Xerox will now source from HP certain A4 and entry-level A3 products with the majority running on Xerox’s ConnectKey controller software platform, in addition Xerox will supply toner to HP for these and other products. The sourced printers will be based primarily on the laser printing technology HP acquired from Samsung in 2017. Furthermore, the companies have agreed to partner in the Device as a Service (DaaS) market. Xerox will become a DaaS specialist in HP’s Partner First program in the U.S. Xerox’s service capabilities and customer reach in the small to midsize business market, combined with HP’s award-winning DaaS PC offerings, will allow both companies to meet a wider range of customer needs. Xerox will be authorized to sell HP PCs, displays and accessories to its commercial customers through DaaS. HP will also make Xerox’s cloud-based content management platform DocuShare Flex available on its commercial PCs distributed in the U.S.
