Increased flexibility and customisation are top of mind for many of today’s businesses, and are also key focus points for the third generation imageRUNNER ADVANCE platform. Building upon the success of this platform, Canon Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, have announced the new imageRUNNER ADVANCE 4500 Series of multifunction systems (MFPs), an information management platform for integrated and holistic business process solutions. Combining powerful scanning capabilities with advanced personalization and additional security features, the new imageRUNNER ADVANCE 4551i, 4545i, 4535i and 4525i models offer excellent document workflow systems for small to mid-size offices, departments within large enterprises and document-intensive industries that require efficient, cost-effective, monochrome printing, including legal, financial services, education and healthcare.
Designed to help businesses save time and improve productivity, these models offer a strong set of standard features, including a single pass duplex scanning document feeder (standard with imageRUNNER ADVANCE 4551i/4545i models, and optional for the imageRUNNER ADVANCE 4535i/4525i models). This powerful feature delivers higher sheet capacity and scanning speeds more than nine times faster than predecessor models.
“Canon has a strong reputation in the A3 market for offering reliable, easily adaptable systems that enhance existing workflows,” said George Mikolay, senior product editor, A3 Copiers/MFPs, Keypoint Intelligence. “With this latest product line upgrade, Canon has demonstrated its commitment to this market segment by bringing its latest innovations in this area to these A3 MFPs, most notably seen in their fast scanning capability, customisation ability and easy connection to their uniFLOW Online solution.”
“The workforce of the future is now the workforce of today, with millennial habits and preferences altering the way companies do business. In order to succeed, businesses are integrating office technology that meets expectations for increased flexibility and customization,” said Toyotsugu Kuwamura, executive vice president and general manager, Business Imaging Solutions Group, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “With this series of imageRUNNER ADVANCE models, we are delivering an efficient, adaptable and cost-effective print capability designed to enable businesses to expand their productivity.”
Meeting the expectations of the changing workforce, which has come to expect the customisation of office technology, these third generation imageRUNNER ADVANCE models include advanced personalisation and can support third-party cloud services using the optional ADVANCE Cloud Portal. In addition, the imageRUNNER ADVANCE 4500 Series includes the enhanced standard security features found on third generation imageRUNNER ADVANCE models, including Universal Login Manager (ULM), a serverless authentication solution that can allow businesses to provide customisation without compromising control. Upon authentication at the device, the My ADVANCE solution interfaces with each individual’s preferred functions and settings, while also helping control user access, meeting both the access control needs of the enterprise environment and the customisation expectations of the individual. Customers in education institutions may find these helpful in providing secure, confusion free use to teachers, instructors and other users to enable them to more easily access and print the documents needed for the classroom and spend their time better focused on serving their students.
The imageRUNNER ADVANCE 4500 Series also provides powerful new scanning capabilities that help decrease the time needed to complete the paper-to-digital journey, allowing resources to be efficiently shifted to other workplace priorities. Each model can support a variety of finishing options, including hole-punching, Staple-Free stapling, Staple on Demand and booklet-making. Combined with imageRUNNER ADVANCE Desktop, legal firms can more easily combine scanned images and other files to more effectively support eDiscovery and case management needs and meet court and client deadlines.
