Canon solutions give educational institutions practical ways to facilitate access to on-campus print devices and integrate them with popular billing applications while mitigating costs and preventing waste.
You don't want to limit research or studying resources, but educational institutions would like to encourage students to print more responsibly.
uniFLOW enables you to gain control over all print usage, even across a large campus. You can limit access to more costly operations, route jobs automatically to the most suitable, economic printers in a campus print shop, and reduce wasteful device usage by requiring each student to swipe their student ID before retrieving a printout.
In large computer labs, students often send and fail to retrieve their print jobs. Canon Secured Print and uniFLOW Secured Print reduce waste by requiring a student to swipe a card at a device before a file is actually printed.
Thanks to embedded applications that leverage the Canon MEAP platform, you can easily link your devices to Pharos and Equitrac cost recovery systems. Your students can then use their campus ID cards to access devices and print documents. Integration with cost recovery solutions, such as Blackboard and CBORD, allow the cost to be deducted from student accounts.
The M500 Self-Serve Copy and Print Station, used in conjunction with imageRUNNER ADVANCE and imageRUNNER devices, provides the easiest way for students to access, pay and print from computer labs or USB drives, mobile devices and cloud accounts, such as Dropbox, GoogleDrive and EFI PrintMe. Additionally, these systems allow students the ability to pay with cash, credit or campus cards.
With the M500, administrators can easily add configured devices and print services, set or adjust prices rates, monitor device agnostics and easily integrate with campus card payment systems.
