Canon has announced the latest devices to join its portfolio of document solutions. The i-SENSYS MF520 and i-SENSYS MF420 series MFPs and i-SENSYS LBP210 series laser printers are designed to develop partners’ proposition to smaller businesses and workgroups in various vertical industry sectors.
The new compact devices address partners’ total cost to serve, while providing black and white print technology to add to partners’ suite of solutions. Partners can draw on existing sales knowledge to provide consistent levels of consultancy, and tackle three key areas of importance to their customers: security, productivity and control.
Security first philosophy
Canon’s security credentials are designed to open new revenue streams for partners. As information security becomes an increasing priority for customers of all sizes, the LBP210 and MF420 and MF520 series come equipped with a range of solutions for device authentication. From the built-in Universal Login Manager to uniFLOW online cloud and uniFLOW on-premise server solutions, administrators can control access to the device, manage permissions and protect document security with Canon’s secure printing features.
Supporting workplace productivity
The i-SENSYS devices have been designed with productivity in mind. Capable of printing up to 43 pages per minute, with single pass, double-sided scanning in seconds, the devices aim to speed up workflows and allow partners to appeal to a wide range of business requirements. All three ranges come equipped with AirPrint and Mopria support as standard. The built-in Mobile Portal enables secure mobile printing, and compatibility with existing software and technology platforms allows partners to better support and promote new ways of working.
Full control for your service offering
Enhanced functionality such as the intuitive 5-inch colour touch screen and customisable Application Library featured on selected models, help partners move into the home and small office space by offering automation and management of everyday tasks. Administrators can print stored forms, scan-to-email and copy documents with a single tap. The feature also allows the administrator to customise the order of the buttons on the screen according to user needs and customise their own displays.
James Pittick, Director of B2B indirect sales, Canon UK said, “for Canon partners, the latest i-SENSYS devices present a way of building new revenue streams. From the point of sale, the devices are designed to tackle security and productivity issues, while significantly increasing ease of management and reducing the ongoing costs associated with maintenance for partners. This combination represents maximum value to both our partners and their customers.”
The i-SENSYS MF520 and i-SENSYS MF420, and i-SENSYS LBP210 series will be available across Europe from April 2018.
