imageFORMULA DR-C225W II and imageCLASS MF260 Series Shine in Respective Categories
MELVILLE, NY, February 6, 2019 – Constantly innovating to produce compact yet powerful solutions for entrepreneurs and other working professionals, Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, achieved two accolades from Keypoint Intelligence – Buyers Lab. The coveted honors recognize the imageFORMULA DR-C225W II device and the imageCLASS MF260 product series as outstanding workgroup scanners and personal MFPs, respectively.
“Both the imageFORMULA and imageCLASS product lines are well-suited for individuals or workgroups looking to increase efficiency and productivity in their document processes,” says Shinichi Yoshida, executive vice president and general manager, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “We are honored to receive this recognition in two categories that are largely influential in helping today’s entrepreneurial spirits bring their ideas to action in the home office and beyond.”
Outstanding Workgroup Scanner
The imageFORMULA DR-C225W II wireless office document scanner is ideal for converting paper-based documents to digital files, offering the flexibility and high-image quality expected from Canon devices. Users are provided with a three-year Advanced Exchange limited warranty, with eCarePAK options available to extend service beyond the initial warranty period and help customers save on costs associated with post-purchase maintenance.
As noted by Lee Davis, Keypoint Intelligence’s editor of scanner/software evaluation: “The Canon imageFORMULA DR-C225W II device provides workgroups with a highly reliable, easy-to-use wireless scanner that doesn’t take up much space. In addition to its flawless performance during Buyers Lab’s 7,500-scan reliability test, the device created some of the smallest file sizes in its competitive group. This is particularly important for workgroups that rely on cloud services that charge a premium for storage.”
Outstanding Personal MFP
The imageCLASS MF260 product series helps increase user productivity while supporting mobile workflows. Each solution in the series boasts a print speed of up to 30 pages-per-minute and provides native support for mobile workflows including Canon PRINT Business, Apple® AirPrint®, Mopria™ Print Service and Google Cloud Print™. The black-and-white models contribute to Canon’s continued dedication to revolutionizing today’s workplace with features ideal to suit small and home office users.
As noted by Tony Maceri, Keypoint Intelligence’s senior test technician: “All of the models in the imageCLASS MF260 family offer outstanding ease of use in a compact, affordable design. Despite a low upfront cost, the imageCLASS MF260 series includes features like automatic duplexing, intuitive menus to quickly and easily program jobs, support for mobile print apps, and a standard wireless interface. They’re great, little desktop MFPs that are ideal for low-volume users.”For more information on Canon products and services, visit usa.canon.com.
