Canon Claims BLI 2020 Copier MFP Line of the Year Award from Keypoint Intelligence
Wokingham, UK – Keypoint Intelligence - Buyers Laboratory (BLI), the world’s leading independent evaluator of document imaging hardware, software, and services, today announced that Canon has won BLI’s coveted 2020 Copier MFP Line of the Year award. Given once a year, this award recognizes the vendor whose product line is deemed best overall based on its rigorous laboratory evaluations—and this marks the second time in the last three years that Canon has received this accolade.
“When it comes to reliability and usability, Canon’s copier MFP line is the standard bearer in the industry,” said George Mikolay, Keypoint Intelligence’s Associate Director of Copier MFP/Production Analysis. “We tacked on more than two million impressions on Canon’s copier engines this year and experienced just three misfeeds, which is simply outstanding and unmatched by any other vendor. Easy maintenance procedures and proactive device management help to further ensure that the products remain up and running. Plus, the models are so easy to use, with universal capabilities and features across the entire line. The well-designed touchscreen can be customized in many ways, all to suit individual users’ preferences. It’s also simple for users to pair their mobile devices with the MFP for printing and scanning. The devices are further complemented by an outstanding software line (Canon’s MEAP platform, uniFLOW and uniFLOW Online Express, and Universal Login Manager, to name several things) to boost security and, most importantly, control costs.”
“Canon’s imageRUNNER ADVANCE, with its combination of hardware and software as one, sets us apart,” said Taz Nakamasu, Executive Vice President of Canon Europe B2B Document Solutions. “Our MFPs deliver an outstanding customer experience, fully integrating with existing infrastructures. This award demonstrates our strength in the market for bringing best in class technology. As a commitment to our customers, we will continually strive to be leaders in quality, reliability and security.”
