BRAMPTON, ON., SEPTEMBER 8, 2020 – Canon strives to develop and produce high-quality, innovative products that empower customers and drive business performance. That is why Canon Canada Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, is proud to announce that numerous Canon office solutions recently received industry recognition.


BLI Summer 2020 Printer/MFP Pick Awards

Awarded twice annually for office equipment, Keypoint Intelligence - Buyers Lab (BLI) Pick awards acknowledge products that gave the best performance in Buyer Lab’s extensive suite of lab tests the previous six months. Canon received three Pick awards in the Printer/MFP category.


BLI Summer 2020 Scanner Pick Award

The imageFORMULA DR-S150 received the Outstanding Workgroup Scanner Pick award. The ideal scanner for workgroups looking to digitize their paper-based processes, the imageFORMULA DR-S150 includes built-in Wi-Fi®, wired Ethernet and USB connections for networked and local operation, allowing it to be used with desktop computers, compatible smartphones or tablets, and shared among multiple users.


“The Canon imageFORMULA DR-S150 is the perfect solution for integrating paper-based information into digital workflows,” says Lee Davis, Associate Director of Software/Scanners at Keypoint Intelligence. “Users can create and save up to 99 single-touch scanning profiles – complete with image enhancement, data extraction, file naming and routing settings – to streamline and standardize frequently recurring scanning chores, like AP processing or adding patient information to an EHR system.”


2020 Buyers Lab Platinum Tested Solution 

Therefore™ 2019 lets users capture, index, process, store and share documents. Buyers Lab recognized the software solution for its full complement of document management features (including OCR, annotation tools and assignable tasks), robust document capture component for centralized batch capture and indexing, and strong administrator and end-user documentation capabilities.


Per Buyers Lab’s solution report: “Therefore…delivers business process automation and business intelligence capabilities that traditional document management systems lack, enabling complex workflow scenarios and insight into an organization’s process efficiency…. We also appreciate the cross-category search capabilities that can retrieve a list of objects (such as documents and workflow processes) related to a selected item – a feature Buyers Lab has not seen in other document management systems.”

Better Buys presents the Editor’s Choice Award to a select group of office equipment products as a sign of excellence in quality, performance and value. The awards provide third-party validation that products selected are best of breed.

The imageRUNNER ADVANCE DX 6000i has been added to Canon’s previous recognition as the 2020 Copier MFP Line of the Year from Keypoint - Buyers Lab.
