Expanded opportunities for customers to use an established print management platform with Canon imageRUNNER ADVANCE multifunction devices.
ST. GEORGE, UT—September 27, 2018—Canon Solutions America, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Canon U.S.A., Inc., today announced an alliance with PrinterLogic, a pioneer in enterprise print management software solutions. The technology collaboration will include Canon Solutions America offering PrinterLogic’s serverless printing solutions to its customers, allowing greater flexibility and increased opportunities for universal printing without the need for print servers.
PrinterLogic provides centrally managed direct IP printing platforms, allowing companies to eliminate print servers, improve printing processes, and empower end users to effectively take control of their own printing environment. The alliance will enable Canon Solutions America’s customers to benefit from PrinterLogic’s proven platform, deploying and managing printer drivers in a wide range of print environments, across a comprehensive array of devices and manufacturers—including the versatile Canon imageRUNNER ADVANCE series of multifunction printers.
“We are pleased that Canon Solutions America has selected PrinterLogic to be one of its printer and driver management integration partners,” said Garrett Helmer, senior vice president of channels at PrinterLogic. “Combining PrinterLogic’s powerful printer and driver management solutions with Canon’s world-class devices will result in improved experiences for all customers, regardless of what their print management environment looks like today.”
The benefits to Canon Solutions America customers from PrinterLogic’s software platform include:
- Universal printing functionality—PrinterLogic’s platform works with all custom and manufacturer printer drivers and includes a proprietary universal driver as a fail-safe. This includes built-in support for Windows, Mac, and Linux end-user workstations, ensuring full-featured, dependable printing, including mixed-OS environments.
- Eliminating print servers—Adopting PrinterLogic’s single integrated platform allows IT staff to eliminate print servers altogether while centrally managing all printers, significantly reducing print-related costs. End users are empowered to install and troubleshoot printers themselves without the need to call their help desk, freeing up company IT resources to tackle more critical issues.
- Centralized management and security—PrinterLogic’s pull printing functions enable users to send documents to a printer releasing them when the user is physically at the device. The PrinterLogic platform also provides users the ease of use to deploy, update, and configure printer drivers from a single, central console.
- Control Panel Application (CPA) Integration—As a key part of the collaboration, PrinterLogic will be fully integrated to Canon imageRUNNER ADVANCE devices via the PrinterLogic Control Panel Application, allowing users a friction-free experience.
“Our customers will be impressed by PrinterLogic’s software platform and how it helps to unify their printing environments,” said Peter Kowalczuk, president of Canon Solutions America. “Through this relationship, the portfolio of solutions supported on the imageRUNNER ADVANCE platform continues to grow, as does the breadth and depth of capabilities that Canon Solutions America is able to offer our customers.”
