Canon has introduced a new line of document scanners to enable partners to expand their e-tail scan range and capitalize on the rapidly developing hybrid working industry. The imageFORMULA R10 and imageFORMULA R40 are part of the R-Series, which was designed exclusively for the e-tail market.
Easy purchase, installation, usability, and a low price point combine to make these devices perfect for hybrid employees and small enterprises, providing channel partners with a compelling solution for this growing market. The imageFORMULA R10 is a portable scanner that allows employees to continue working productively even when traveling between workspaces. Meanwhile, the imageFORMULA R40 provides home workers and small business owners with business-grade performance and intelligent features.
“We’re seeing a rise in businesses allowing employees to work flexibly from alternative locations including their home office and while mobile. We want to provide our partners with specialized products designed to address this growing market,” says Taz Nakamasu, Executive Vice President of B2B Document Solutions at Canon Europe.
He added, “By also making business-grade technology available to buy directly and easily off the shelf, at an attractive price, we can help our partners capture this new market and drive growth through high-volume sales.”
End-to-end simplicity, to support high volume sales
The models have simple set-up that an end-user may complete on their own, from home or away, and the R10 model does not require any drivers or software installation. Customers only need to connect their device via USB to begin scanning right away, while imageFORMULA R40 customers may install all essential software with a single click. Canon’s CaptureOnTouch software is included with the imageFORMULA R-Series, and it boasts a new, intuitive user interface that makes scanning easier for first-time users.
Additional capabilities on the imageFORMULA R40 help users who don’t have access to IT. Software patches and updates are installed without the need for IT involvement or administration, giving you peace of mind.
Business quality, for an affordable price
“Our new devices are now simpler to buy, install and use, lowering traditional barriers to purchase for end users. In turn, this encourages higher sales volumes for the channel,” continues TazNakamasu.
He added, “These devices can be bought, delivered and set up by end-users the next day, empowering partners to offer e-tail the fast, easy access to the technology their customers need, wherever they are working.”
The imageFORMULA R-Series offers straightforward use at a more economical price without sacrificing quality. The new devices are built on Canon’s industry-leading scan technology, allowing e-tailers to continue to meet end-customer demands at a lower cost.
At 40 pages per minute and 80 images per minute, the imageFORMULA R40 is a high-speed scanner. It’s built to last, with 4,000 scans each day, and it feeds consistently, even when scanning a batch of mixed-size papers. This device is great for productive home workers because to its built-in smart capabilities. The imageFORMULA R40 comes with Canon’s CaptureOnTouch and ReadIRIS software, which uses powerful Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology to save documents to multiple formats and create editable, searchable files, allowing users to search scanned documents for keywords and add annotations easily.
The imageFORMULAR10 is a compact, robust device that can be easily transported. Despite its small form, it delivers 12 pages per minute, and double-sided scanning; it also has a 20-sheet feeder. It can handle various documents, from business cards to A4 documents, while being powered simply by USB.
