Canon Wins BLI Awards for Information Governance and Cloud Output Management Solutions

Therefore™ 2018 and uniFLOW Online Shine in Respective Categories


MELVILLE, NY, January 7, 2019 – In its quest to help enterprises transition into the Office of the Future, Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, achieves two accolades from Keypoint Intelligence – Buyers Lab. The coveted honors recognize Therefore 2018 and uniFLOW Online as outstanding information governance and cloud output management solutions, respectively.

“Buyers Lab analysts and lab technicians looked at dozens of document imaging solutions in the past year, and each of them delivered tangible strengths for its intended market, says Jamie Bsales, director, solutions analysis at Keypoint Intelligence. “Those honored today, however, proved themselves to be among the best in their categories thanks to an impressive mix of productivity-enhancing features, value for the dollar, ease of use for end users and IT administrators, and other key attributes.”

Outstanding Information Governance Solution

Therefore™ 2018, Canon’s exclusive-premier information management, workflow, and business analytics platform stands out, according to Buyers Lab analysts, for its information security and information governance abilities. The outstanding information management platform includes data storage security features that can assist users with their compliance efforts when transmitting, receiving, maintaining, retaining, collaborating, and deleting business information.* Features also allow companies to find, store, and catalog the personal data retained in compatible systems and tools which may help organizations with certain aspects of reporting and assessment requirements.*

Outstanding Cloud Output Management Solution

uniFLOW Online, an outstanding cloud output and scan management platform, delivers essential print, capture, and routing features in an online service. Information gathered can be used by an organization to identify where print-related cost savings can be made, and the service’s pull-printing feature allows a user to send a print job and release it at any compatible device on the network. The cloud-based architecture eliminates the need to purchase, deploy, and maintain a server for the application, and customers can always have the latest software in force without having to update the program.

“Cloud and security solutions will both be pivotal in 2019,” says Shinichi Yoshida, executive vice president and general manager, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “We are honored to receive recognitions in two categories that will be largely influential in shaping the future workplace and helping our clients to more seamlessly conduct business.”
