HP won BLI’s coveted 2020 Printer/MFP Line of the Year award. Given once a year, this award recognises the vendor whose product line is deemed best overall based on its rigorous lab evaluations. For the eighth time in the last decade, HP has claimed this award (the first seven were for Color Printer/MFP Line of the Year).

“HP is the winner of our Printer/MFP Line of the Year award thanks to its collection of outstanding models that span an impressive range of categories, from low- to high-volume, both laser and inkjet,” said Kaitlin Shaw, Keypoint Intelligence’s Senior Editor of Printer/MFP Analysis. “In addition to class-leading reliability, HP MFPs and printers offer impressive user-friendliness, high-quality output, cutting-edge security features, and very good to excellent value propositions. HP’s OXP architecture, which is available on its mid- to high-volume offerings, makes devices more than just output machines, allowing them to integrate with numerous software solutions that can streamline workflows, boost productivity, and reduce costs. The consistent strength and breadth of HP’s portfolio make it stand out above the rest.”

“We’re honoured to be recognised by Keypoint Intelligence – Buyers Lab with the prestigious Printer/MFP Line of the Year award,” said Xavier Garcia, Head of Print Hardware Systems at HP Inc. “Our robust portfolio, with smarter solutions and services and industry-leading security, is tearing down barriers between paper and digital—and delivering on what businesses need today and in the future.”

Canon won BLI’s coveted 2020 Copier MFP Line of the Year award. This marks the second time in the last three years that Canon has received this accolade.

“When it comes to reliability and usability, Canon’s copier MFP line is the standard bearer in the industry,” said George Mikolay, Keypoint Intelligence’s Associate Director of Copier MFP/Production Analysis. “We tacked on more than two million impressions on Canon’s copier engines this year and experienced just three misfeeds, which is simply outstanding and unmatched by any other vendor. Easy maintenance procedures and proactive device management help to further ensure that the products remain up and running. Plus, the models are so easy to use, with universal capabilities and features across the entire line. The well-designed touchscreen can be customized in many ways, all to suit individual users’ preferences. It’s also simple for users to pair their mobile devices with the MFP for printing and scanning. The devices are further complemented by an outstanding software line (Canon’s MEAP platform, uniFLOW and uniFLOW Online Express, and Universal Login Manager, to name several things) to boost security and, most importantly, control costs.”

“Canon is honoured to be recognised by Keypoint Intelligence – Buyers Lab with the 2020 Copier MFP Line of the Year as it reflects our company’s holistic approach to meeting business needs and preparing our customers for the office of the future,” said Shinichi Yoshida, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Canon U.S.A., Inc. “We plan to continue delivering on our commitment to developing high-quality solutions designed to meet both market and customer needs in 2020 and beyond.”
