Canon devices tackle heavy duty digitisation

Canon Australia is launching four new colour A3 multifunctional devices, the imageRUNNER ADVANCE C5500i Series, which will be available from August 1 offering intelligent document workflows and addressing the total cost of print across an organisation. 

With information management an increasing priority for Australian businesses, the imageRUNNER C5500i Series is designed for digitisation.

The new MFDs provide rapid scanning to capture paper-based data as well as the ability to scan and convert documents to Searchable PDF, Microsoft Word and Microsoft PowerPoint files.  A single-pass duplexing document feeder holds up to 150 originals for use in digitisation within the most document heavy businesses.

A new intuitive user experience is promised via a responsive colour touchscreen that can be customised to meet the needs of individual users and businesses.

The user interface will be available on all future imageRUNNER ADVANCE models as well as advanced personalisation capabilities.

Universal Login Manager software provides a combination of user-based authentication and control of each device’s personalisation function.

The next generation devices are able to be integrated with Canon’s uniFLOW software, which can provide device, output management and smart scanning solutions.

Canon’s device management tools offer centralised control across entire fleets.  Devices can be updated, inactive units can be remotely turned off, meter readings can be captured, and address books and printer drivers can be managed accordingly.

Peter Brittliff, Senior Manager-Product at Canon, said the imageRUNNER ADVANCE C5500i Series is designed to deliver maximum return on investment to businesses by minimising maintenance and downtime while boosting productivity and profitability.

“The value of print for our customers lies in its ability to create, manage and share documents and information in a secure manner, and seamlessly across an organisation. The new range of devices come with the new shared platform to reduce administration, and ensure employees have the technology they need to work digitally and efficiently.

“The imageRUNNER ADVANCE C5500i Series delivers these benefits cost effectively across the entire workflow and fit seamlessly into any working environment.  It represents best in class performance, designed with environmental goals in mind and advanced network security.”
