Canon have recently released two new photocopiers: the irC3080(i) and irC3580(i), with features such as Wi-Fi, e-maintenance and high security options, could this mean it's time to say goodbye to the simple photocopier as we know it and welcome the new age of office machines.
Now that colour photocopiers can be run much more efficiently than a few years ago, an increasing amount of businesses are investing in colour machines that can print and copy, instead of running two separate devices. New Canon photocopiers have features which will bring colour photocopying and printing costs down further. Auto Colour Sensing in these new Canon photocopiers automatically detects which documents contain colour, and then prints accordingly, helping to keep costs down. The Canon irC3080 photocopier range incorporates copying, printing, scanning and faxing all in one machine. This means work places no longer need a separate machine for different tasks. These new Canon photocopiers also have an option of using a document feeder, which allows documents to be scanned, then instantly forwarded to mail-boxes, folders or email addresses, reducing paper use.
New Canon photocopiers are Wi-Fi enabled, meaning that they can be internet and network connected without cables. Considering a few years ago photocopiers were simple devices just used for copying sheets of paper, technology has advanced fairly quickly. New technology advances not only mean that documents can be found and sent directly from a photocopier but, as these new Canon photocopiers are not limited by cables, they may be positioned anywhere, a particularly useful feature for small or open plan offices.
Advanced security available for the new Canon photocopiers allows, not only for password or login set ups for sensitive documents, but will also allow fingerprint recognition. This means sensitive documents stored electronically, will only be accessed by appropriate employees. Using passwords or logins is also very helpful in tracking where most printing and copying is coming from. The new Canon irC3080 photocopiers incorporate ID management, allowing monitoring of print use within the work place, tracking, not only where prints are coming from, but what is being printed. In an age where everyone should be looking at their own environmental impact, perhaps using photocopiers less frequently, this feature is particularly useful as it allows setting up of departmental print quotas. This has potential for forcing employees to think more carefully about what they are printing, meaning less paper is wasted from unnecessary printing.
Technology in office machines has reached an impressive level and the new Canon irC3080 range of photocopiers is an example of what you can expect from a modern device. Perhaps this spells a change in the way we use photocopiers, which could lead to an end of having several separate devices in each work place, instead replacing them with one, all-encompassing machine. Features of the new Canon photocopiers make you wonder what new office technology will be like in another ten years. The new Canon photocopiers have the capability to store documents and send them electronically, so perhaps they are paving the way for a future with much less paper use.
