• New additions from Canon support hybrid workspaces

        • Canon has announced updates to its hardware and software offering, designed to help businesses adapt to the ongoing evolution of working environments. The latest developments across uniFLOW Online and imageRUNNER ADVANCE support efficient and productive ways of working, whatever the workspace set up.

          Canon has updated uniFLOW Online, its cloud-based output management solution, to support productive document workflows, regardless of location. Suitable for Purchasing, HR, Accounts teams or any department looking to streamline its workflow, new uniFLOW Online 2020.2 allows workers to manage documents more easily through the cloud by building greater automation into the platform. This reduces the administrative burden on employees and opportunity for error, saving on valuable business time and resource.  

          The latest version of the software, available with the imageRUNNER ADVANCE portfolio, now offers Filing Assist, which can automatically identify and file scanned documents. Details of the scan, like the document type or company, are extracted at the point of digitisation and instantly name and save it to the right cloud location. Using machine learning, the software can also learn to recognise common business documents to support faster automatic filing next time.

          Building on the successful introduction of Canon’s digital transformation enabling A3 range, the company is also announcing the completion of its upgraded imageRUNNER ADVANCE DX portfolio with the launch of its A4 models – the imageRUNNER ADVANCE DX C477 series, C257/C357 series and 716/617/527 series. The small footprint of the A4 models offers greater flexibility within your fleet without compromising on productivity.  Perfect as a dedicated departmental device, for downsized central office spaces or local collaboration hubs, print and digital are seamlessly integrated wherever your team needs to be.  

          The full imageRUNNER ADVANCE DX range will now also benefit from the 3.11 update to our Unified Firmware Platform, delivering the latest security and connectivity credentials, as well as compatibility with Universal Print by Microsoft. Our Unified Firmware Platform is at the heart of all our imageRUNNER ADVANCE DX devices and allows for regular upgrades to our technology for both new and existing customers in line with market needs. 

          Tony Wills, Document Solutions Business Unit Director, Canon UK and Ireland said, “prior to recent global events, businesses were already facing pressures to expedite their digital transformation in order to stay competitive. Now, as the focus shifts to survival and building greater organisational agility, having efficient, connected tools available, wherever your team is working, has become an absolute necessity. 

          “Keeping your daily work flowing is our priority, which is why we regularly update both our uniFLOW Online software and our Unified Firmware Platform, bringing you the latest innovations for managing and securing your business information, as well as reducing unnecessary infrastructure and time-consuming admin. It’s also why we work closely with organisations like McAfee and Microsoft to ensure seamless integration across the technology you use every day.   

          “Our devices are at the heart of this integration. In fact, our entire portfolio is designed to support a digitally-led approach, wherever you are in your digitisation journey and whatever your workspace set up. From a smaller device for your desk at home to those you use on your office floor, from i-SENSYS X to imageRUNNER ADVANCE DX, our innovative technology helps to keep your workforce connected, supporting seamless information flow across your business.”
