Canon U.S.A. Announces uniFLOW V5.3, Providing Greater Flexibility, Security and Control over Printer and MFP Fleets

MELVILLE, N.Y. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — September 24, 2014 — Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced the release of uniFLOW V5.3, the newest version of uniFLOW. uniFLOW is an integrated software platform for device management, secure printing, including mobile print, advanced scanning, document routing and accounting. uniFLOW V5.3 offers a variety of new features, such as enhanced scanning to cloud-based services and a new per-device scanning licensing model. In addition, uniFLOW V5.3 offers more flexibility in print infrastructure design and multivendor support to address customers with heterogeneous printer environments.

“Today’s multifunction devices have advanced to more than just a print centric device, they have evolved to be an essential element in automating and or optimizing businesses processes,” said Ron Glaz Research Director at IDC. “A key MFP enabler is the incorporation of intelligent document solution software. Canon’s uniFLOW V5.3 enhancements are very timely and relevant in supporting MFP integration within back-office and line of business workflows.”

“Improvements to uniFLOW were made to help users maximize productivity, heighten document security and provide users with the flexibility to customize the platform to meet the needs of their individual businesses,” said Junichi Yoshitake, senior vice president and general manager, Business Imaging Solutions Group, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “uniFLOW continues to play a critical role in helping customers actively manage their print environment and costs. With new scanning capabilities and licensing, uniFLOW extends support to include document capture and workflow functions, allowing customers to more holistically manage their document related activities and processes.”

The new key benefits offered by uniFLOW V5.3 include:

“We were already impressed by Canon’s imageRUNNER ADVANCE systems. When coupled with uniFLOW, our expectations were met and exceeded,” said Cris Beagle, sr. systems engineer, Propex, Inc. “uniFLOW provided the ease of integration we demanded and delivered the user-friendly operation that would eliminate the barriers to productivity that existed for so long.”

“NT-ware is excited to collaborate with Canon on bringing uniFLOW V5.3 to market,” said Karsten Huster, president/CEO NT-ware. “The key features of this release help address the needs of the market for a one platform output management and advanced scanning solution, while also giving businesses options to reduce the impact on IT infrastructures.”
