HP has not really managed to capture its glory days of old, and going over to the company’s online store will definitely not do its bit to entice me to part with my hard earned money, no thanks to a time ravaged design. Well, things might soon change in that part of the virtual world, as an internal HP memo sent out to its employees talked about the launch of a new US Home & Home Office consumer store at the end of this month. The memo has called this particular project the “Atlas”, where it will function as “the foundation of a new HP.com experience with more visual content, more product information and better navigation.” This leaked memo also comes with links to the employee purchasing program, where one is able to obtain a special price on a Folio 13. The link will lead one to the landing page, but it definitely isn’t a preview of the upcoming website revamp. You are able to read about the contents of the leaked memo after the jump.
U.S. HP Employees,
Thanks to the efforts of our colleagues in IT, Operations and the HP Shopping Team, the new U.S. Home & Home Office consumer store is launching. The Employee Purchase Program site is now live and the official launch for general customers will happen later in March.
Code-named “Atlas,” it is the foundation of a new HP.com experience with more visual content, more product information and better navigation. The new platform will enable our HP.com teams to bring products to market faster and make it easier to buy from HP.com.
To celebrate our big new HP.com platform we have a special offer for you.
Now through March 14, HP employees in the U.S. can visit the store’s remodeled EPP area and purchase the HP Folio 13t-1000 Notebook PC starting at $749.99 (taxes and upgrades not included) through a combination of the normal employee discount and a special coupon. Add the Folio 13t-1000 to your cart—limit of 1 per employee—hit the checkout button and then enter coupon code xxxxx when prompted.
If you already have an EPP account, those credentials will give you access to the new system. Otherwise, you’ll need to sign up. Then once you’re logged in, type Folio in the search field and select the third and last option from the search results. Remember that the price won’t reflect the coupon yet because you still need to apply the code.
On behalf of everyone at HP, we thank the Atlas Team whose long hours and diligent work are about to start paying some big dividends.
