SYDNEY, Tuesday 10th April 2012: Canon Australia, a world leader in business imaging solutions, today announced the launch of its imageRUNNER 1700 Series of Multi-Function Devices (MFDs) offering a powerful and highly scalable print solution in a compact and energy efficient footprint.
The imageRUNNER 1700 Series is perfect for enterprise workgroups as part of a fleet and small to medium-sized businesses as a stand-alone device. Designed with efficiency in mind, the 1700 Series delivers high-speed document workflows and compact productivity that is easy to manage and cost-effective to run.
“The Canon imageRUNNER 1700 series fills a need for small to medium-sized businesses that may be looking to consolidate their older copiers, faxes, scanners and printers with one high performing, compact device but who still want something that is scalable as their business grows,” said Jeremy Plint, Assistant General Manager Marketing, Canon Business Imaging Australia.
The new black and white imageRUNNER 1700 series includes powerful colour scanning/sending technology, adds new speeds and functionality to Canon’s A4 range and is compatible with Canon’s uniFLOW software and eMaintenance system.
“It’s designed for the way we work in the 21st century – so security and accessibility is a key component. Users can securely access the system over their network and meet all their network printing, scanning, copying and faxing needs and it goes beyond traditional printers by supporting USB media. This means a user can directly print from and scan to their USB flash drive wherever they are at that time,” concluded Jeremy Plint.
Canon’s eMaintenance system sees the device automatically read and report on its own print counters, monitor toner levels and order replacements before they run out which deliver real time savings to the customer, a reduction in print downtime and better control of their printing costs.
The imageRUNNER 1700 series delivers a more interactive customer experience through an advanced touch screen user interface to maintain consistency with other MEAP enabled devices in Canon’s portfolio.
The imageRUNNER 1700 series will be available in two configurations and will be available on 10th April nationally from Canon directly or through Canon’s authorised Canon Partner Channel (CPC) network of dealers. Full specifications at www.canon.com.au/business
