HP WORKPATH – SIMPLIFY THE WAY YOU WORK

Change MFPs from print and copy devices into the office workflow stations.

HP is one of the few manufacturers to bring security to the forefront of its print strategy. Security is now tightly integrated with its MPS strategy, encompassing services and solutions that cover basic device security to advanced solutions that address people, process and compliance requirements.

Workpath apps offer a variety of capabilities for streamlined digitization workflows and securing confidential information—while creating an intuitive user experience.

Developing traditional modules for print applications is costly and complex, which prevents many organizations from commissioning apps to improve their users’ workflow. By offering the Workpath library of apps, HP is creating user experiences that are closer to a mobile app experience, with vendor-specific solutions.

“By reinventing the role of the printer in the workplace, we’re enabling today’s mobile and digital workforce with smarter tools that allow them to get their work done securely and more efficiently, wherever and whenever.”

Tuan Tran,
President, Imaging, Printing & Solutions, HP Inc.

REDUCED WORKFLOW STEPS

By greatly reducing the number of workflow steps and offering a single sign-on, Workpath apps can save time and money. Eliminating several small steps helps to create substantial time savings when multiplied across user groups and over time. This also improves users’ ability to quickly search for their digital content and send files electronically.

Making it easier for users to convert paper into digital content helps organizations to accelerate digitization. Improving access to content while simplifying document processing supports today’s mobile workforce. Streamlining workflows also reduces the chances of data- entry errors, especially when processing many documents.

Integrating apps into existing MFPs maximizes value for teams—and may even reduce the need for additional office equipment, such as desktop computers to support document processing. Costs of managing software and on-premise servers may also be minimized.

DESIGNED FOR SECURITY

Before an app is made available on the Workpath platform, it must pass rigorous HP verification and validation processes to help ensure app security. Only then is it whitelisted and added to the app library for HP MFPs—the world’s most secure printers.

The app platform is protected by HP Sure Start, which blocks attacks against the core platform. Each app runs inside a “container” on the device, which can only connect with networks through APIs that are determined by HP.

INTUITIVE EXPERIENCE

Apps are integrated into the MFP touchscreen much like mobile device apps. Instead of relying on a computer to connect paper documentation with content systems, the MFP can now connect directly to systems and dramatically simplify workflow processes. Users can send scanned images to their chosen repository,
or print documents directly from the MFP control panel. Workpath apps are designed to easily integrate with typical cloud repositories such as Microsoft® OneDrive® for Business SharePoint

Apps range from those offering basic functions, such as delivering scans to a repository, to apps that allow for some customization, to those developed specifically for one unique use. This ability to hyper- customize means that some apps may only be offered in applicable locations.

These robust security measures mean that all Workpath apps have been tested for vulnerabilities. HP digitally signs and whitelists each app, helping you to be sure that it’s still in its original form and will not compromise your device.
