HP hopes that the death of Windows XP will help you raise your sales
Prior to the launch of Windows 8 on October 26, 2012, industry PC makers had been showing a clear decline in sales that revealed the decline of the business, which is expected to reverse with the arrival of the new Microsoft operating system to lift the figures. But Windows 8 came and things did not improve .
Does the new plan? Expect Windows XP die to force consumers to have to upgrade their platform and purchase a new PC. For the latest figures show that XP is still being used in a third of the teams around the world , while between 40% and 50% of business area continues in this old platform, which plays against new sales opportunities for industry.
This would indicate what HP executives, hoping that less than a year by subtracting the official death for Windows XP , opens an opportunity to force the purchase of new equipment. They even have a slogan ready for when that time: “Goodbye XP, hello HP” (goodbye XP, hello HP), according to statements by Enrique Lore, vice president of HP’s business who revealed this information without mincing words.enrique lore, HP, sales, Ventas, windows-xp, XP
