Canon U.S.A., Inc. announced it is the recipient of eight awards from Keypoint Intelligence, including the BLI 2021 A4 Line of the Year Award, as well as a 2021 Outstanding Achievement Award for Hybrid Workplace Scan Technology.
“Canon’s portfolio of award-winning models this year is unmatched in breadth,” said Kaitlin Shaw, associate director of A4 Hardware, Keypoint Intelligence. “From home offices to large workgroups, whether color or monochrome, single-function or multifunction, Canon has the device to meet your needs. Canon’s outstanding lineup surpassed the competition in many ways offering top-notch value propositions, performances, and user-friendliness.”
The company also receives the BLI 2021 Outstanding Achievement Award for Hybrid Workplace Scan Technology from Keypoint Intelligence as a result of its lineup of single-function scanners and MFPs for both Small Office/Home Office (SOHO) and corporate office scanning environments. Specific features that helped Canon’s lineup of imageFORMULA and single-function scanners and imageCLASS MFPs earn this award include the line’s distributed document capture capabilities through uniFLOW Online and Therefore Online, secure deployment and ongoing administration of home-based imaging hardware, and ability to automate data entry tasks regardless of location.
“Hybrid workplace technology is more than just an asset that helped businesses get through COVID-19 — it’s a paradigm shift in the way that businesses are operated, enabling organizations to increase worker productivity while scaling down office space requirements and overcoming geographic barriers that limited access to more talent,” said Lee Davis, associate director of Software/Scanners, Keypoint Intelligence. “With Canon’s standalone scanners and MFPs connected to solutions such as uniFLOW Online and Therefore Online, businesses can lift their information-management and workflow-automation technology to the cloud and make them accessible to employees no matter where they are located.”
