HP today announced new solutions, channel tools and marketing assets to round out its Just Right IT portfolio, designed to support small and midsized businesses (SMBs) through every phase of growth.
Mobility and Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) trends have enabled an increasingly mobile workforce to access information from anywhere at any time, leading to rapid growth of unstructured data. To address these trends, SMBs must prepare their existing IT infrastructure to quickly provision resources to support and manage mobile devices on the network while at the same time keeping IT up and running 24/7. The HP Just Right IT portfolio addresses these challenges.
The HP Just Right IT portfolio enables resellers to deliver the right IT solution at the right time to SMBs. New to the program today are HP ServeIT and HP ServiceIT, which allow resellers to rapidly assess and deliver solutions—based on customer size and the stage of a customer’s IT development—accelerating time to solution and time to revenue.
“At each key growth stage, SMBs require the right IT solutions that support the critical business outcomes they want to drive,” said Kris Rogers, senior vice president, PCM—an HP channel partner. “HP’s Just Right IT portfolio delivers a simple program for HP Channel Partners, offering tools for all SMB growth stages that efficiently and effectively market, sell, design, deliver and deploy simple, affordable and reliable solutions.”
