Canon has announced an update to its imageRUNNER ADVANCE Third Generation fleet. The 2nd Edition Portfolio combines Canon's latest hardware and software technologies, and is designed to provide businesses with secure and consistent cloud-based document solutions. The new range also aims to reduce the cost to serve for partners while also addressing their customers’ total cost of print.
The new imageRUNNER ADVANCE portfolio operates on the Unified Firmware Platform (UFP) and always-on monitoring checks for vulnerabilities before they emerge, saving businesses time and expense. By continually pushing the latest features and updates out to devices, equipment remains fully functional and fully secure with minimal input from users.
The new portfolio offers a range of models and the upgraded devices offer integrated solutions including a scan to cloud and output management solution, uniFLOW Online Express, as well as device-based authentication solution, Universal Login Manager. Track and report on the activity and generate graphical reports in the uniFLOW Online Express portal. The dashboard allows drag & drop of widgets according to personal needs and displays an overview of the organisation’s print, scan and copy environment, giving different detailed reports for user and device.
The updated imageRUNNER Advance portfolio can also integrate with other capture and document management solutions including uniFLOW and Therefore Online. True cloud connectivity allows businesses to match specific document workflow requirements to their device.
The imageRUNNER ADVANCE Third Generation 2nd Edition platform boasts robust security and print fleet control, with integration of hardware and software.
User authentication login at device means even jobs sent from mobiles can be held securely until released – protecting confidentiality.
When rolling out any of the third generation imageRUNNER ADVANCE models the cost of installation and configuration across an entire device fleet is minimised thanks to many features being standardised. The installation process is further expedited thanks to central setup and maintenance of device settings, applications and licensing.
James Pittick, Director of B2B indirect sales, Canon UK said, “at Canon we are committed to evolving our technology to meet the needs of our partners while helping them to reduce costs and improve profitability. We are also dedicated to helping partners work productively and efficiently in an ever-changing modern workplace, whilst also achieving growth.”
The new imageRUNNER ADVANCE series will be available from February 2018 and uniFLOW Online Express will be available from April 2018.
