CanonEurope, world-leader in imaging solutions, today announces that it has received two ‘Winter Pick’ awards and a ‘Line of the Year’ award from testing and research organisation Buyers Laboratory LLC (BLI) for software products within its imaging solutions portfolio.

Recognising Canon’s on-going investment in innovation, BLI has presented Canon with the following awards:

  • BLI Winter 2013 ‘Pick’ Award for Outstanding Achievement in Innovation for Canon’s Universal Login Manager
  • BLI Winter 2013 ‘Pick’ Award for Outstanding Achievement in Innovation for Quick Print Tool in Canon’s iW Desktop
  • BLI’s ‘Solutions Line of the Year’ Honours for Canon’s solutions portfolio

This is the first time that BLI has presented ‘Solutions Line of the Year’ honours in Europe and follows the introduction of BLIs new ‘Solutions Center’ test facility. Canon has been recognised for offering the strongest solutions portfolio across the range of software categories that BLI covers in its facility.

“Customers are increasingly coming to rely on document imaging software solutions to streamline mission-critical business processes, increase the productivity of knowledge workers, and leverage their existing investment in imaging hardware,” said Jamie Bsales, senior product editor for solutions at BLI. “Canon offers an unrivalled catalogue of software products in the key areas that can make a real difference to a customer’s document-centric processes.”

Categories tested included Document Management / ECM, Document Capture & Workflow, Accounting / Cost Control & Recovery, Print Management, Device Management, Mobile Printing and Security. Many of the products covered, including Canon’s uniFLOW and Nuance Equitrac offering for Accounting, Cost Control & Recovery and Print Management, were awarded 5-stars in BLI’s hands-on Solutions Reports.

“Canon developed the iW Desktop Quick Print Tool to help address everyday office publishing challenges and our tool offers easy drag-and-drop print and PDF publishing right from your desktop. The development of our Universal Login Manager, meanwhile, was driven by the growing marketdemands for tighter control of print output” said Matthew Wrighton, European Marketing Manager at Canon Europe.

“Our primary goal is to address the key challenges that our customers are facing around controlling costs, securingconfidential information and enhancing user workflows. Our solutions deliver all of this in a simple but effective way. We are delighted that BLI has recognised our achievements in innovation for products across our solutionsportfolio.”
