Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, has recently received two awards from Keypoint Intelligence.
The accolades continue with Canon previously earning the BLI 2022-24 Most Reliable A3 Brand Award for its dedication to developing strong, dependable technology for office environments.
Canon’s A4 lineup was deemed by Keypoint Intelligence best overall based on its rigorous lab evaluations, earning the honor of the Buyers Lab (BLI) 2023 A4 Line of the Year Award. This marks the second time in three years Canon won the award, adding to its victory in 2021.
Keypoint Intelligence cited the high-quality, professional-looking output and outstanding productivity while offering user-friendly options and the ability to obtain excellent scan speeds to help meet the digitization demands of the modern hybrid workforce.
“It is plainly obvious that Canon has expertly designed a range of A4 devices that can suit many requirements—colour or monochrome, single-function or multifunction, or otherwise,” said Rachel Dean, Keypoint Intelligence Office Group’s technical editor. “This impressive A4 line-up enables productive collaboration demanded by today’s rapidly changing ways of working. The strength and span of Canon’s portfolio make it the deserving winner of the BLI 2023 A4 Line of the Year Award.”
To determine the A4 Line of the Year Award recipient, Keypoint Intelligence considered current multi-function printers and printers in the original equipment manufacturer’s portfolio that had been submitted for lab testing, along with previously tested devices that are still available. To judge the overall quality of the line, analysts looked at the overall rating a device received after testing, as well as the ratings in areas such as reliability, value, usability, image quality, and speed.
“Canon is honoured to receive the BLI A4 Line of the Year Award from Keypoint Intelligence. This prestigious accolade highlights our strength in the multifunction printer industry, and greatly reflects Canon’s unwavering commitment to supporting our channel partners and their customers,” said Shinichi “Sam” Yoshida, executive vice president and general manager of Canon U.S.A., Inc. “At Canon, we recognise the working environment is evolving rapidly, and we strive to not just keep up but to exceed the needs of our stakeholders. It continues to be a high priority to integrate quality, usability, and performance into our full suite of offerings.”
Additionally, uniFLOW Online earned a (BLI) Pick Award for Outstanding Cloud Output Management Solution for a fifth consecutive year, being chosen for an award by Keypoint Intelligence for enabling organizations to track and control print, scan and copy activity from different environments through a single platform in the cloud.
“Keypoint Intelligence analysts and technicians have time and time again been impressed with the uniFLOW Online solution, and that is still the case with the latest iteration of the solution,” said Lee Davis, Senior Analyst in Keypoint Intelligence’s Office Group. “When looking at the platform’s print management capabilities and then adding its impressive Secure Printing feature, mobile device support, and in-depth tracking, the uniFLOW Online solution continues to be an amazing cloud solution.”
