“Canon is always looking for innovative ways to exceed our customers’ needs,” said Satch Hattori, Senior Vice President & General Manager, Imaging Systems Group, Canon Canada. “Canon’s Mobile Scanning for Business App gives our imageRUNNER ADVANCE users a mobile solution to help manage their work requirements from anywhere.”

The Canon Mobile Scanning for Business App features the following innovative tools:

Intuitive MFP Communication

The app can search for and identify Canon MFPs within a wireless broadcast range and automatically save these devices for future use. If the Canon MFP cannot be found within a wireless broadcast range, users can manually enter the IP address of the Canon device to list it as one of their available scan devices. Users can then easily toggle between devices to initiate scan jobs from multiple MFPs.

Wide Range of Compatibility Provides a Satisfying End-User Experience

The app supports devices running iOS 5.1 or later and is available for the iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C, iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, the New iPad (4th Generation), iPad (3rd Generation), iPad 2, the original iPad and the iPad Mini.

Scan Settings that Optimize Workflow

A variety of built-in scanning options empower users to enhance control and performance. Users can tailor scan resolution, paper size, file format, colour mode and two-sided (duplex) scanning directly from the app. Users can also instruct the app to initiate scan jobs from either the platen glass or via the auto document feeder.

Scanned File Distribution Capability

Once an original is scanned, users can opt to save the file to built-in local application storage (“Camera Roll,” or “My Documents”) for later retrieval, attach it to a pre-set email address for distribution to colleagues, or open it into another iOS application seamlessly via the “OpenIn” feature for further management. Users can also open it directly into Canon Mobile Printing to immediately print the file; users who have not previously downloaded the free Canon Mobile Printing application for iOS will be automatically directed to the App Store.

Comprehensive Device Menu

Users can access a built-in device menu for each discovered MFP that provides device status, model name, IP address and MAC address information. Direct links to support information and the device’s remote user interface (web portal) are also easily accessible.
