Canon, the imaging solutions provider, has strengthened its offer for partners with the launch of new competitive imageRUNNER ADVANCE and i-SENSYS devices; broadening Canon's portfolio of office hardware and opening new revenue streams for partners.
Advanced integration with Canon's existing imaging hardware and software allows partners to provide customers with a bespoke print and imaging solution to meet the varied corporate and departmental print needs. As a result, partners are now able to effectively address the demands of any business customer.
The new devices provide partners with a broad and competitive offer from Canon, including a new high-speed 51ppm A3 model, as well as a big improvement in device serviceability. Partners will save time and money with easier maintenance options and remote servicing through eMaintenance, while end users will experience reduced downtime and improved levels of service.
Alex Thurgood, European and UK Channel Marketing Manager at Canon Europe: "The new launches for Canon not only provide partners with an even broader range of office hardware to offer customers, but with the integrated nature of our key imageRUNNER ADVANCE and i-SENSYS devices, Canon is providing partners with new sales opportunities. A strong and adaptable portfolio means that partners can provide corporate customers with a balanced deployment of print technology, or a solution for smaller businesses looking for advanced functionality from their office printer.
"The launch of the imageRUNNER ADVANCE 4000 series provides partners with a new and competitive offering within the imageRUNNER ADVANCE platform; the sales of which now total over 440,000 worldwide since the launch in 2009. This move ensures that Canon can provide a complete offering within the important A3 market."
The new imageRUNNER ADVANCE 4000 series completes the successful Canon imageRUNNER ADVANCE A3 portfolio with four efficient A3 black-and-white MFDs. The new devices include a competitive high-speed, 51ppm model that delivers the efficiency, security and cost saving benefits associated with the imageRUNNER ADVANCE platform.
With the launch of the i-SENSYS LBP6680x and LBP6670dn, Canon is adding two new black-and-white single function printers (SFPs) to its i-SENSYS range. The LBP6680x is built on architecture consistent with Canon's imageRUNNER ADVANCE platform, providing many of the same high-level imaging features in a smaller device, perfectly suited to corporate workgroups or for small businesses that require enterprise level functionality.
In addition to these devices, Canon is also launching two new black-and-white i-SENSYS fax devices, the FAX-L150 and the FAX-L170. The FAX-L170 features an in-built handset and both models include a 5-line LCD display, compact footprint, low power consumption and UHQ image processing. The new fax devices will enable resellers to offer a solution where fax is critical to business processes or for small businesses that require a combination of fax and print functionality.
