Canon Europe, world leader in imaging solutions, has launched six new series of scalable A3 multi-functional devices (MFDs) designed to help customers address today’s business challenges with smarter ways of working
Canon announces the interim findings of its new independent, Pan-European insight report addressing the latest technology and trends in the workplace - with the final insight report due in January 2013
Documents are still central to our working lives with over 80 per cent of end-users across 19 European countries printing every single day, according to the interim results* of an independent ‘Office Insights’ report launched today
Over half of respondents print less nowadays, but 83% believe in the future they will be using their printer or MFD as much as they do today or more; especially for scanning purposes
What they print is now more valuable to them in terms of what is produced and how it is used with good-looking, high-quality documents being a key factor in the success of their organisations
Working patterns are evolving and decision-makers must understand how the requirements of end-users have changed; mobility, security and professional looking documents top the list
The new imageRUNNER ADVANCE platform provides customers with a unique set of capabilities through a new suite of powerful standard and optional software applications
Canon’s simple serverless log-in solution – Universal Login Manager – is available on all new imageRUNNER ADVANCE devices to offer user-level personalisation, usage tracking and access control
A range of solutions is available to integrate with cloud-based workflows and support mobile working, for example Canon Mobile Printing, PRINT & SCAN, Cloud Connect and eCopy Scan to Cloud applications
Canon’s unique iW Desktop Quick Printing Tool allows documents to be professionally finished in-house; for more advanced capabilities, Canon’s iW Desktop provides easy drag and drop functionality to combine and create documents, before editing, personalising and previewing for a professional finish in minutes
imageRUNNER ADVANCE simplifies print-related management and delivers increased up-time with improvements to Canon’s device management solutions, eMaintenance and iW MC
The new imageRUNNER ADVANCE C5200, 6200 and 8200 series will be available from October 2012. The C2200, C7200 and C9200 series will be available from November 2012.
* based on 729 interviews; final report based on a survey of 1,500 respondents and 50 in-depth interviews to be published in January 2013

“Organisations are under increasing pressure to be leaner and more agile. This change is being driven by end-users so it is essential that decision-makers understand how their requirements are changing and what functionalities they need from their office equipment.
“The second generation imageRUNNER ADVANCE platform directly addresses this challenge by enabling smarter ways of working through increased personalisation, usage control as well as cloud connectivity and mobile working.
“The new platform strengthens Canon’s ability to provide a complete imaging solution to organisations of all sizes. Small businesses will benefit from enterprise level capabilities such as heightened security, effective control of print costs and powerful document publishing tools, while enterprise customers and large organisations can utilise a scalable imaging solution with advanced security, integration and fleet management at its heart.”
