Canon U.S.A., Inc., announced today Version 2.0 of its ADVANCE Cloud Portal for compatible imageRUNNER ADVANCE systems and the availability of uniFLOW Online, a multi-tenant, cloud-based print management solution. uniFLOW Online enables small and medium sized businesses a way to manage their print environment without the need for a local server. ADVANCE Cloud Portal V2.0 helps users directly scan, store and print documents to and from their cloud file services.
Expanding on the current capabilities, Canon looks to further add usefulness to the existing version of ADVANCE Cloud Portal, which allows users to scan and print from their Google Drive™ account. The latest version of ADVANCE Cloud Portal V2.0 enables users to scan to four additional cloud destinations, including Box®, Dropbox®, Evernote® and Microsoft OneDrive® from the latest imageRUNNER ADVANCE systems. Version 2.0 also now provides scan and print access from many imageRUNNER ADVANCE systems to Google Drive™.
Building on the success of the uniFLOW platform for print and scan management, uniFLOW Online now provides a scalable enterprise platform with security features. As businesses look to leverage new infrastructure models and cut costs of operations, sophisticated cloud platforms become very appealing in IT deployment initiatives. Document and device security, cost reductions, productivity and environmental impact concerns are the pillars to which Canon is promoting this solution for all types and sizes of business.
InfoTrends sees cloud accessibility and platform openness as expectations in the customer environment. Priorities driving cloud acceptance are not only apparent in cost and resource reductions but with document security which crosses a variety of vertical business types.
