uniFLOW Online has evolved into an unmatched, sophisticated print and scan management solution. In the beginning it focused on user authentication, secure and mobile printing and accounting for small and medium sized businesses. Today, this versatile and feature-rich platform, hosted on regional Microsoft Azure datacentres, has grown to include a wide range of scanning applications, easy driver deployment and support for various job submission pathways so it can cater to the needs of even the large, worldwide operating enterprise customers.

“Over the past 5 years, we have seen many of our customers’ business requirements evolving. In a fast-changing business and societal environment, they all need to find ways to increase the productivity of their employees, allow mobility and remote working, whilst securely accessing information and processing documents. Canon Digital Transformation Services is supporting customers in this constant “need to adapt” journey, helping them to find solutions to their evolving requirements. uniFLOW Online is a key pillar in a comprehensive range of print & scan products, various software and services that Canon provides as part of its Digital Transformation Services offer. It enables customers to realise the opportunities the “New Way of Working” represents, while providing also solutions to the challenges that it generates.”
