BLI A4 Line of the Year

Canon has claimed the coveted 2023 BLI A4 Line of the Year award thanks to its flawless reliability across all Pick Award-winning devices, superior productivity including standout scan speeds, first-rate user-friendliness, professional looking output, and extensive device management tools. This accolade recognizes that Canon offers an A4 lineup that is deemed best overall based on rigorous Keypoint Intelligence lab evaluations. According to Rachel Dean, Technical Editor in Keypoint Intelligence’s Office Group, “Canon’s ever-evolving portfolio of award-winning imageRUNNER ADVANCE DX, imageCLASS X, and MAXIFY GX A4 models is unmatched when it comes to meeting and exceeding the needs of virtually all home, hybrid, and office environments. All tested devices have delivered consistently superior performance, from first-rate user-friendliness for users and IT administrators to strong image quality and superb speed test results.”

BLI Pick Award Outstanding Cloud Output Management Solution – uniFLOW Online

Additionally, Canon is proud to announce that uniFLOW Online has won the Pick Award for Outstanding Cloud Output Management Solution for the fifth year in a row. uniFLOW Online has won this prestigious pick award thanks to its support for hybrid working environments, wide range of output management features, access control, and data protection capabilities as well as its robust portfolio of capture features and integrations with cloud services. According to Lee Davis, Senior Analyst at Keypoint Intelligence, “Keypoint Intelligence analysts and technicians have time and time again been impressed with Canon uniFLOW Online, and that is still the case with the company’s latest iteration of the solution. When looking at the platform’s print management capabilities and then adding its impressive secure printing features, mobile device support, and in-depth tracking, Canon uniFLOW Online continues to lead the pack with its cloud solution.”

In Addition to Canon's Most Reliable Brand Award for Maximum Uptime

These two recent awards add to Canon’s existing accolades, including the prestigious 2022-2024 BLI Most Reliable A3 Brand Award. This award is based on results from extensive durability testing across many manufacturers’ devices over a five year period, 2017-2021. During this time 4,455,000 pages were printed on 23 Canon A3 MFP devices, and only 6 misfeeds occurred, with a very low rate of service during testing – just two service calls during the five year period. According to Pete Emory, Director of Research & Lab Services U.S./Asia at Keypoint Intelligence, “The durability stats rung up by Canon A3 MFPs in the last five years is astounding. Reliability is the foundation of our lab testing, and we appreciate that Canon makes the subject not just a talking point but an actionable item – and the company delivers. At the end of the day, customers with Canon A3 MFPs will experience high device uptime that enables workflow to be in continuous motion”.

This combination of awards speaks to Canon’s excellence in supporting today’s modern work environment, which is inclusive of in-office print and scan needs, support for home office environments, and the ability to control, manage, and maintain an efficient fleet across various locations.
