Books and Manuals on Demand


Automate processes, accelerate your digital transformation

The book and manuals life cycle is shortening. Organisations need to make updates and deliver to market quickly. Canon’s Books and Manuals on Demand application enables digital transformation and short-run printing, while connecting multiple data silos, production, and distribution workflows.

The benefits of Books and Manuals on Demand

Embrace the shift to ‘just-in-time production’ by producing short-run and one-off books and manuals only when you need them.

Books and Manuals on Demand selects the relevant documents and content from the original data source or repository based on the order information, converts the data including content files into one file, then applies the media and finishing requirements for production.

The application monitors all steps to identify and resolve issues, improving accuracy and turnaround times.
