HP today released a new range of devices and solutions for the Nigerian and other markets, designed to help people boost productivity, collaborate with ease, and work anywhere, with strong security.
A statement from the company notes that the COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted work environments around the world and it has become clear that hybrid working environments are the new normal. It further states that nearly half of business professionals are working remotely and the importance of productivity at home is clear – that people want faster PCs and faster internet. For IT organizations, the statement discloses that 60% are finding ways to support more flexible work arrangements to provide the same level of support at home as users get in office. At the same time, more than 40% of IT departments are prioritizing built-in security on employee endpoint devices.
Global Head of Commercial Personal Systems for HP Inc, Andy Rhodes said: “With workspaces at home becoming the status quo and businesses supporting their workforce both remotely and for those back in the office, the PC is essential in these hybrid working environments.”
According to her: “We’re making our most premium experiences more accessible with new laptops that offer greater mobility to work from anywhere, desktops that bring powerhouse performance to small workspaces, monitors that enable collaboration and support wellbeing, and services that offer comprehensive and flexible solutions – all to support the business transformation happening today.”
One of the new products is the HP ProBook 635 Aero G7, equipped with the latest AMD Ryzen™ Mobile Processor for powerful performance and has connected modern standby to get users working in seconds. With a starting weight of under one kg and long battery life, it is designed to keep users productive around the home, in the office, or on-the-go. HP Sure View Reflect allows users to work discreetly, Wi-Fi 6 and 4G LTE makes it easy to get connected, and the keyboard provides a smooth and quiet typing experience.
HP also introduced the HP ProBook 600 G8 and HP ProBook 400 G8 PC Series built for professionals at growing companies who move from desk to meeting room to home. With an enhanced design and optional quad-core 11th Gen Intel® Core™ processors, the latest ProBook 600 and ProBook 400 PCs continue to deliver the commercial performance, security, and durability that users need.
For users who need more power to keep up with serious workloads, HP unveiled new Elite and Pro desktops designed to meet the demands of a multi-task work-day with a choice of form factors.
The HP E24d and E27d Conferencing Monitors empower users with everything they need to virtually collaborate. These Zoom-compatible monitors allow users to effortlessly video conference with the integrated pop-up webcam, microphone, and attached speaker bar without having to buy or connect additional accessories. This clean desk solution is completed with docking, so with a single cable from this monitor, users can connect their laptop and all their PC essentials with 100W USB-C® power delivery.
With 57% of small- to mid-sized business owners planning to adopt options for employees to work from home in the long-term, they are struggling to manage, protect, and support their remote employees while ensuring business continuity.
HP said it understands the complexity and challenges businesses face in today’s unpredictable climate and is bringing to market a new solution-oriented program providing peace of mind and ultimate productivity. HP Business Boost provides the right technology, security, and support services enabling small to mid-sized businesses to manage the workforce evolution at an affordable monthly cost.
