Cost effective colour

A number of powerful tools exist which allow you to keep a tight reign on your costs. Using Canon’s iWAM MEAP gives you the ability to assess who is printing what, where and how much it’s costing you. And with AMS part of uniFLOW Output Manager, you can even limit access to certain functions, e.g. print, copy, scan and fax by user, group or department.

Secure and dependable colour

For added security, device access can be controlled by passwords, company login procedures or even fingerprints. Secret watermarks can also be embedded into confidential documents to prevent them being copied and hard disks can be encrypted or erased.

As well as helping you to keep costs low, Canon’s unique e-Maintenance facility automatically monitors your devices and their status and reports this to service centres and Canon partners so there’s no need for you to worry about constant monitoring.
