Also included in the plan is HP’s Next Business Day Onsite Service, which provides expert assistance or support from HP within 24 hours of contact, minimising any downtime and allowing businesses to get back up and running quickly.

Daniel Powell of architectural practice Daniel Powell Studio was looking into purchasing a replacement large format printer and was told about the plan by the team at Plot IT, part of the wide format printer supplier the Stanford Marsh Group.

'We were asked if we would be interested in joining the Print At Your Service pilot scheme,' says Powell. 'It looked great value without the upfront costs so we went ahead. It is working well for us. The HP ink always arrives in plenty of time and the scheme delivers a cost-effective printing service without the upkeep and maintenance costs.'

The HP DesignJet Print At Your Service is available from approved HP partners Plot IT, DPSB, Ebuyer and the HP Store.
