Canon enhances office document software

By : |May 11, 2010 0

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA: Canon Australia today announced the launch of the new version of its iW 360 software to improve the way an organization’s documents are designed, shared and stored.

The latest version of this software has been completely re-developed to include a range of features that complement and act as an extension of Canon’s next-generation imageRUNNER ADVANCE, said a press release.

The new version is compatible with Canon’s existing IR range.

Luke Maddison, senior product manager Business Solutions, Canon Australia says, “Organizations are looking for ways to increase productivity and profitability. Canon’s iW 360 was created to help simplify the way that organizations handle business documents.”

“ Canon is the first to offer a software package that effectively manages the complete lifecycle of a document, from capture, editing, sharing, saving and archiving through to publishing. The latest version of iW 360 simplifies tasks and enables users to work closer and more effectively with one another,” he added.

iW 360 boosts productivity at each stage of the document lifecycle, whether scanning, editing, collating, publishing or storing a document. Also by creating an automated workflow, previously time-consuming tasks can be transformed into a small number of quick and simple clicks of a button direct from the MFP.

The ‘server’ option adds an extra layer of functionality and increased collaboration. Data and documents can be stored in shared libraries which enable users to control the collaboration and editing process. Only one person can enter a file at any time ensuring that the latest version is always selected. In addition, iW 360 Server will notify users when any changes are made to a relevant document. If incorrect information or edits are saved, users can roll back to previous versions.

iW 360 also allows users to collate documents and images from any file type which is supported by a user’s PC, to build a single, editable document with consistent fonts, colours and formats. This document is then displayed on-screen so it can be previewed before printing.

The new version also provides connections to company back-end systems through the introduction of four connectors for FTP, SMB, SMB Indexing and Microsoft Sharepoint embedded in the MFP. These are embedded into the MFP and facilitate immediate scanning into the required system.
