Canon style office. Overview of business devices and solutions

Good afternoon, Geektimes!

Thank you for your warm welcome and comments on our first publication. As we promised at the very beginning, in this and subsequent posts we will acquaint you with Canon’s products and solutions for business.

And we want to start with a general review. And so that you do not get confused in our devices and do not get bored of a large amount of information, we decided to conduct a virtual tour (no, no, VR glasses will not be needed) around the office with modern Canon products.

So imagine that you are the head of an IT publication ...

Reception desk

You open the door to your office. At the entrance, at the front desk, there is a compact laser fax from the i-SENSYS FAX line . A device that, in addition to its direct responsibilities, can work as a full-fledged multifunction device.

Office space

Quite recently, real chaos was happening in the departments of your office: some printers had jams all the time, others were completely idle (legends were running about their existence, but finding them was no easier than real dragons), and print caused outright bewilderment.

Came to the aid of a comprehensive package of services MPS Essentials . Thanks to a special software, Canon experts analyzed the current situation in the company and made recommendations in terms of optimizing the print fleet, changing employee habits, improving security and print stability, regardless of the fleet (models and manufacturers).

You also learned that in addition, Canon provides many services, for example, Essential Business Builder’s customized printing software and even equipment rental.

Working groups

By optimizing printing with Canon, everything fell into place.

Where production printers were required, black and white and color laser printers and Canon MFPs from the imageRUNNER and imagRUNNER Advance families were installed. For example, in the financial department, which is the most demanding in terms of volume and load, flagship models of multifunction printers with a capacity of up to 50 pages per minute were installed.

You also used Canon’s proprietary workflow solutions, namely, for processing and preparing invoices and forms and the Digital Mailroom solution for e-mail. This all made it possible to significantly simplify the routine processes in your publication.

Another successful acquisition of steel jet office MFPs from the Canon MAXIFY line, which are great for printing reports or handouts. In addition to print speeds comparable to laser printers and high quality prints (bad stereotypes about inkjet printing technologies have not been true for a long time), models from the MAXIFY line have a good value for money (including print costs) and a technical component.

The uniFLOW proprietary solution, existing both as a service on an organization’s server and as a cloud, allowed your IT department not only to flexibly configure access rights, but also to control printing processes in a company (even on printing devices from other manufacturers) thanks to additional identification terminals and software.

Negotiations and conference rooms

In order for presentations and planning meetings to be as informative and visual as possible, Canon projectors were installed. In large premises, we chose reliable and powerful 4K laser projectors from the XEED line, for example, WUX500, for smaller rooms - short-focus XEED WUX 450ST projectors with a compact design and wide use possibilities.

In order for a randomly generated idea or any necessary information to be immediately sent to executives, imageFORMULA portable and desktop scanners were also installed in conference rooms and editorial offices .

By the way, for industrial scan volumes in the Canon lineup, there are models with a capacity from 80 to 130 pages per minute.

Media department

For decoration of event areas using large format art print, you are planning to purchase one of the imagePROGRAF wide format printers. In the line of devices there really is plenty to choose from: from models with a 12-color ink system, which are often used in photographic laboratories to 5-color wide-format MFPs for CAD and GIS.


Those tasks that you can’t do inside the organization can be solved by your partners and specialized devices, including flatbed printers from the Océ Arizona family for printing on rigid and flexible media. Or, for example, modern industrial printers Océ ColorStream, which allow not only to provide high quality printing and save on consumables and maintenance, but also to produce circulations, relatively speaking, from 1 copy.

Instead of conclusion

Your work day is over. You leave your office, confident in your people, your partners, your technique.

And what else is needed to enjoy the business?
