Canon USA receives two BLI Pacesetter Awards

December 7, 2017

The OEM’s American subsidiary has been recognised by BLI for its efforts in both the higher education and financial markets.

Canon USA announced that it has recently been recognised by BLI for its efforts in the competitive higher education and financial services markets, receiving two Pacesetter Awards, based on an in-depth demonstration that the company conducted.

“Paper-intensive processes can provide a myriad of challenges in an office environment, often unnecessarily disrupting workflows,” says Jamie Bsales, director of solutions analysis at Keypoint Intelligence. “We recognize Canon in both the higher education and financial services verticals for the company’s ongoing commitment to providing the business community with products, solutions, and services that promote automation and are able to understand and anticipate the inner workings of future office environments in today’s connected world.”

In terms of the higher education market, BLI asserts that Canon stands out for its “ability to promote interoperability and support flexible learning spaces through its expansive range of document imaging hardware and software.” This includes the OEM’s latest imageFORMULA scanners, imageCLASS A4 printers and MFPs, imageRUNNER ADVANCE MFPs, imagePROGRAF large format printers for banners and schematics, imagePRESS and varioPRINT production print solutions for large-scale document and book printing-in house, as well as the uniFLOW print and scan management software suite, Nuance eCopy ShareScan that end users can leverage for its document security-centric capture and distribution capabilities, and highly customisable Therefore™ information management, workflow, and business analytics platform.

Beyond document imaging, Canon’s product portfolio includes both still and video camera equipment that are ideal for use in “university sports programs, broadcast, film and photography schools, and media art departments.” In addition, Canon’s Axis video surveillance cameras can be used for “security, remote meetings, and property surveillance.”

Process bottlenecks are “common in financial institutions”, and because of this, BLI recognises Canon solutions for “their ability to help boost document security, user experience and office efficiency via user authentication and workflow automation, such as through document tracking and alert notification.” Canon’s extensive hardware and software portfolio, “coupled with its industry services and well-recognised customer support”, can assist financial institutions with a wide array of business needs.

“Interoperability, flexibility, and security are key components within the higher education and financial services markets,” says Toyotsugu Kuwamura, executive vice president and general manager, Business Imaging Solutions Group, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “Manual document processing can lead to bottlenecks that ultimately hinder productivity. Canon solutions boost office efficiency with automated workflows designed to help organizations ultimately conduct better business.”
