New Canon Laser Multifunction Device Adds an Advanced Function to Help Businesses Save Time by Automating Document Digitisation
Aside from Copy, Print, Fax, and Scan functions, the new imageRUNNER ADVANCE DX C5800i series features the MyFile function to automate and streamline the document scanning and filing process
SINGAPORE, 12 May 2021 — Canon is delighted to announce the launch of the imageRUNNER ADVANCE (iR-ADV) DX C5800i series, a range of A3 colour laser multi-function devices (MFDs). Conventional MFDs possess copy, print, fax, scan functions but the new iR-ADV DX C5800i series adds a new innovative fifth function, MyFile, to address the growing need for digitisation, collaboration and cloud storage access.
The document scanning and filing process has traditionally been a manual one which is inefficient and prone to errors. Mistakes in document names and filing locations can also hinder retrieval or collaboration efforts. MyFile works in combination with the new iR-ADV DX C5800i series to help businesses boost the efficiency of their filing and indexing workflows.
MyFile automates scanning, naming, converting and filing of documents to popular cloud services such as Google Drive, Therefore Online, DropBox, BOX, OneDrive and Sharepoint Online among others. Users can set rules and pre configure workflows to scan batches of repetitive documents such as invoices, delivery notes, picking lists and orders. As a result, users can automate the labour-intensive process of digitising documents while minimising errors.
“At Canon, we are always looking to provide new technology and solutions for our customers’ digital transformation journeys.” said Vincent Low, Senior Director, Business Imaging Solutions, Canon Singapore. “We listened to our customers and are excited to reveal that the latest iR-ADV DX C5800i series is designed to exceed the conventional capabilities of an MFD. By adding a fifth function to the standard four found in MFDs, the imageRUNNER ADVANCE DX C5800i series is no longer just an MFD but a gateway to the digital office. As more functions, data and documents are being digitised and people collaborating more through online services and channels, it’s more important than ever to ensure that filing and indexing workflows are as efficient as possible.”
One Size Fits All
Digitising paper documents can be a laborious task, both before and during the actual scanning process. Manpower and time is spent on categorising and sorting documents before commencing the scanning process, but by using the new iR-ADV DX C5800i series and MyFile, users can automate the categorisation and sorting process.
The new iR-ADV DX C5800i series’ industry-leading scan speed of up to 270 images per minute (ipm) and its ability to scan papers of different sizes (up to A3 paper size) at a single go also helps businesses reduce the time and effort needed during the scanning process.
Archiving and retrieval of documents can prove a challenge as saved files might not follow a standardised naming convention or have been saved in different folders throughout the system. Finding and collaborating on scanned information in such situations can be difficult and time-consuming.
By using optical character recognition (OCR), MyFile can file different document formats and also extract key information or metadata from documents. MyFile works together with the iR-ADV DX C5800i series to streamline the document filing process, increase accuracy and efficiency and result in files that are organized according to the organisation’s standards and can be easily accessed for quick collaboration between staff.
Security as a Priority
From document, network to device security, the latest iR-ADV DX C5800i series adopts a holistic approach in strengthening its defence against security breaches, and incorporates a wide range of security features to safeguard businesses against cyber threats. Notably, the series uses Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 2.0 to safely encrypt critical data stored on the MFDs, and complies with Common Criteria (CC) Hardcopy Devices Protection Profile (HCD-PP) certification, an international evaluation standard for information security. McAfee Embedded Control, a standard security feature on the MFDs effectively blocks the execution of unauthorised applications, and prevents tampering of existing firmware to better protect businesses against malicious attacks.
