Canon completes imageRUNNER ADVANCE range with three new black-and-white MFDs
SYDNEY, 28 June 2012: Canon Australia, a world leader in business imaging solutions, today launched the imageRUNNER (iR) ADVANCE 4000 series with the addition of three new efficient black and white Multi-Function Devices (MFDs). This completes Canon’s A3 iR ADVANCE portfolio and helps businesses to better manage their printing costs and improve productivity.
Designed to improve document and device efficiency, security and increase business profitability through greater cost control management, Canon’s new smart multi-function models - iR ADVANCE 4051, 4035, 4025 - provide a greater choice of high speed black and white A3 printing solutions. Swift black-and-white output combined with simplicity and improved usability of the hardware makes even sophisticated document tasks easy to perform.
Part of Canon’s award-winning range, the 4000 series also includes Canon’s unique Advanced Box document sharing solution. Advanced Box helps deliver tangible workflow benefits for small and medium sized businesses or departments within large organisations. Files can be stored in Advanced Box shared folders and easily previewed and accessed from numerous locations, including PCs and other networked iR ADVANCE devices. When privacy is required, files can be stored to personal folders.
“The current economic climate has forced many Australian companies to really consider where they can reduce costs and find greater returns for their investments,” said Luke Maddison, Canon Australia Group Manager, Business Marketing. “Many don’t realise that their print and document management processes offer massive opportunities to improve performance and rein in costs.
“By enhancing their document communication with a tailored hardware, software and service package, businesses can get tasks completed more quickly, efficiently and economically, freeing up employees for other activities,” continued Luke Maddison.
As with all Canon products, full software and hardware integration ensures streamlined workflows and back office integration. Users can access and manage documents in a range of digital formats securely from a desktop computer or mobile device through Canon’s uniFLOW 5.1, iW 360 software and Cloud Connect features. uniFLOW 5.1 assists with tracking costs and print volumes, improving security of information through follow-me secure print release and the ability to print directly from mobile devices.
Like the entire iR Advance range, the 4000 series also integrates with Canon’s new Invoice Processing Solution – IRIS, enabling businesses to scan and extract key information from documents in a variety of formats to connect and integrate with the back office in real time, eliminating time-consuming manual data entry, reducing invoice processing costs and enabling staff to get information more quickly and efficiently.
Comprising recycled materials and bio plastics, the iR ADVANCE 4000 series is ENERGY STAR qualified and uses just one watt of energy in sleep mode.
Other key benefits include:
Integration with uniFLOW to automate tasks such as assigning cost centres, setting restrictions and re-directing print jobs to carefully manage costs.
24/7 device monitoring automatically reading and reporting print counters, tracking toner level and ordering replacements to provide maximum uptime.
The new series will be available nationally from Canon directly or through Canon’s authorised Canon Partner Channel (CPC) network of dealers. Full specifications at www.canon.com.au/business
