LONDON, 18 July 2016 Canon, world leader in imaging solutions, today announces the release of its next generation multifunctional devices, the imageRUNNER ADVANCE C5500 series.

The five colour A3 multifunctional devices (imageRUNNER ADVANCE C5535, imageRUNNER ADVANCE C5535i, imageRUNNER ADVANCE C5540i, imageRUNNER ADVANCE C5550i and imageRUNNER ADVANCE C5560i) enhance productivity through intelligent document workflows and an intuitive user experience and help to address the total cost of print across a business. The series launches with the new imageRUNNER ADVANCE shared platform for next level print management and usability.

Smart just got smarter
The new devices offer an intuitive user experience thanks to a large, responsive colour touchscreen which can be customised to meet the needs of individual users and businesses. The user interface will be common on all future imageRUNNER ADVANCE models along with advanced personalisation capabilities which can ensure a seamless, highly personalised experience across an entire fleet environment.

Return on investment
The imageRUNNER ADVANCE C5500 series represents best in class performance while improving organisation-wide efficiency. The Universal Login Manager software provides a unique combination of user-based authentication and personalisation function control, giving total output visibility and helping to significantly reduce the overall cost of the document production process. The devices can be easily integrated with uniFLOW software, Canon’s comprehensive and scalable solution software platform for device, output management and smart scanning solutions for increased control.

Seamless integration with business applications and cloud ecosystems ensure that the imageRUNNER ADVANCE C5500 series is instantly interoperable with existing processes and mobile working.

Effortless, intelligent, digital
With information management an increasing priority for modern businesses, the imageRUNNER C5500 series is designed for digitisation. Rapid scanning captures paper-based data with ease while the intelligent devices come with the ability to scan and convert documents to Searchable PDF, Microsoft® Word, and Microsoft® PowerPoint files. A single-pass duplexing document feeder that holds up to 150 originals ensures seamless digitisation for even the most document heavy businesses.

Canon’s unrivalled expertise and state-of-the-art imaging technologies deliver consistently striking quality. V² (Vivid & Vibrant) imaging technology ensures outstanding colour quality output on a wide range of media, even at large volumes while its finishing capabilities impress time after time and will help your documents stand out from the rest.

“In today’s digital world, businesses increasingly need smart technology to enable employees to work efficiently – that thinking is at the heart of our new devices,” said Adam Poole, Marketing Director, Canon UK & Ireland. “The value of print lies in its ability to create, manage and share documents and information seamlessly across an organisation. The imageRUNNER ADVANCE C5500 series with the new shared platform is designed to reduce the administration, time, cost and effort of this process while boosting productivity.”

Consistent brilliance
A huge paper capacity of 6,350 maximises time between replenishment while status notifications monitor performance at all times. The new imageRUNNER ADVANCE’s smart, adaptive technology ensures software is always up to date for a consistently optimised performance. Canon’s device management tools offer centralised control across entire device fleets and ensures that all 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. Combined with Canon’s Managed Print Services (MPS), this proactive management and continual optimisation of print infrastructure and related business processes saves money, increases efficiency and improves overall productivity.

The imageRUNNER ADVANCE C5500 series will be available in the UK from the 1st September.
