Canon MFPs will access the Cloud directly

18 November 2010

In an earlier News item, "From the MFP to the Cloud", we were already talking about integrating imaging devices into on-line document management solutions.

Canon's "Scan and Print for imageRUNNER ADVANCE," a free application available for MEAP-enabled Canon devices, enables users to scan directly from the MFP to cloud-based services like Google docs and Sharepoint Online.
It also allows them to print documents on the MFP directly from the same cloud services. Users will no longer need their PC either way.

This will allow business people to quickly, cheaply and easily share paper-based information to the cloud. Once up there, the information can be shared to anyone with a smartphone or handheld computer, again without the need for a PC. Apart from the cost savings for businesses, the speed with which this process can spread paper-based information will make this very attractive - especially for those businesses already using cloud-based services, or those with mobile teams.

Scan and Print for iR ADVANCE will be released in Japan in mid-December. It will then be rolled out to the rest of the world. Canon have not released a timescale for this, but we will keep you in the know!
