Reigate, 6 June, 2007 – Canon, world leader in digital imaging technology, today announced a new office solutions suite that will increase office productivity by streamlining the way that office workers capture, manage and print documents. iW360 comprises an integrated suite of powerful software solutions that enable users to work with a selection of scanned images, electronic documents, web pages, charts and presentations.
- iW360 delivers a range of software into one powerful, accessible product set to increase office worker productivity
- Enables fast document creation from multiple sources
Alex Thurgood, Solutions Marketing Manager, Canon UK, said: “The sheer volume of information that office workers have to file, search and re-purpose to create documents puts pressure on them like never before. Everyone can
picture a time when they’ve been asked for a report at the very last minute, but couldn’t find the relevant information. iW360 allows office workgroups to store information in a structured manner, locate the documents that they want, collate and edit
them, select the required document finishing functions on their multifunctional printer (MFP), such as stapling, double-siding & booklet making, and then output. With iW360 you can create professional looking documents within minutes – a significant
Canon’s extensive research of office managers, IT managers and office workers revealed a consensus: greater simplicity is required when it comes to dealing with information and technology, without changing processes. iW360 addresses this by combining
powerful desktop- and device-based software that allows users complete control over their documents.
“Workplace efficiency is becoming increasingly hampered by unstructured digital information. Research (Accenture Information Management. Middle Manager Survey, February 2007) shows that managers spend more than a quarter of their time searching for
information – and most of what they find is of no use. Consequently nearly six-in-ten (59%) tend to store the information that’s of most value to them on their PC, which makes it inaccessible to colleagues and often leads to the duplication of work. iW360
tackles this problem by giving you the tools to store and retrieve everyday files and collate them into professional documents, saving you time and hence improving productivty,” added Thurgood.
iW360 will be available for shipping throughout Europe from September 2007.
