CHICAGO, March 29, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Today at the Amplify™ Partner Conference, HP Inc (NYSE: HPQ) announced new products and solutions to usher in the next era of hybrid work for everyone with a comprehensive set of computing solutions for hybrid flexibility.
With only 22 percent of workers describing themselves as ‘thriving’ in hybrid work,2 it’s clear companies are still figuring out how to make hybrid work. “Most companies want to move past the ‘forced return’ to the office era of hybrid work,” said Alex Cho, President of Personal Systems, HP Inc. “The challenge is, they’re not sure how to. We believe the future is hybrid flexibility, which delivers the best of the home and the office to workers everywhere.”
According to HP’s Future of Work study, 80 percent of workers want to be in the office some of the time3, but many companies continue to struggle to get workers back in the office. HP research suggests that the most significant barrier to a return to office is a sub-optimal technology experience. In fact, 89 percent say technology is the most important factor driving return to office decisions1. Similarly, of those who report thriving in hybrid work, 90 percent believe that access to the right technology and tools leads to a positive work experience.4 To accelerate employees’ return to work, the right technology is required for optimal work setups, enabling success for companies and their employees.
“Hybrid work does not equate to remote work. True hybrid work creates a great culture that connects people, raises productivity, and builds engagement. Technology is the biggest factor in doing that,” said Guayente Sanmartin, Global Head of Commercial Systems and Displays Solutions, HP Inc. “HP is the only company that can truly make hybrid work across all spaces – home, office, and in between – and we’re going big with innovations to help keep people connected, productive, and secure.”
HP Presence Enriches Collaboration Experiences in the Era of Hybrid Flexibility
Since 2021, HP Presence5 has enriched video conferencing experiences on the PC with intuitive collaboration innovations for people to truly feel connected while working together at home or in the office. HP Presence will be available across all HP commercial notebooks6 – from ProBook and Dragonfly series to Z by HP mobile workstations. This provides companies the critical solutions for revitalizing collaboration, culture, innovation, and productivity to make working in or out of the office a seamless experience. Innovations include multi-camera experiences enabling users to be shown while whiteboarding at the same time and Auto Camera Select for face tracking makes meetings more engaging and natural.

Expanding the Boundaries for Remote PC Management
Hybrid work has made remote PC management at scale more complex, yet more essential. To address this challenge, HP is announcing HP Wolf Connect an IT management connectivity solution that provides a highly resilient and secure connection24 to remote PCs, enabling IT to manage devices even when powered down or offline. Using a cellular-based network, HP Wolf Connect’s robust connectivity25 helps ensure IT teams can readily manage a dispersed hybrid workforce.

HP Wolf Connect with HP Wolf’s Protect and Trace is the world's first software service capable of locating, locking, and erasing a PC remotely, even when it’s turned off or disconnected from the Internet.26 This capability protects sensitive data on the move and helps lower IT costs by reducing the need for PC remediation or replacement.
HP Home Delivery Streamlines Hybrid Worker Setup
As IT teams now manage hybrid workers both at home and in the office, setting up employees with the right devices wherever they are in the world can be an unreliable, complicated, and inconvenient process.
As part of HP Logistics Services,27 the HP Home Delivery28 solution securely delivers29 HP commercial PCs, displays, and peripherals30 directly to employee residential addresses across the globe31 so hybrid workers can get their devices conveniently up and running right out of the box. Updates to HP Home Delivery enable more efficient ordering, tracking, and proof of delivery.
