and extra efficiency
Whatever the size of your company, you can use uniFLOW Output Manager to gain effective control and management of your entire printer fleet. This comprehensive web-based software system is both modular and configurable, allowing a solution to be implemented that’s aligned to your specific business requirements.
What is uniFLOW Output Manager?
Canon’s uniFLOW Output Manager is designed to save you time and money by providing effective controls over your entire print fleet. Whilst most IT departments face challenges in this area, Canon recognises that your specific issues aren’t the same as someone else’s. That’s why we recommend addressing them with a flexible and comprehensive web-based solution that can be easily integrated into your existing systems. So, even if, for example, you’re using an incumbent system to provide controlled access to network print devices, uniFLOW Output Manager allows it to be retained as part of a seamless implementation.
uniFLOW Output Manager helps you keep tight control over your costs. Prices
can be assigned to users or teams in
a manner that’s as sophisticated as
you like. For example, you could set
a different budget or price for A4, A3,
B&W, colour, single sided, double sided,
booklet making and even stapling. If the
user exceeds his budget, we could either
allow him to keep on printing or block
his printing until his manager agrees a
new budget. This information can then
be used to define printing policies and
ensure your print infrastructure is being
used as effectively as possible.
Reduce costs through efficiencies
Another way to save money is to
minimise the time spent managing
and solving IT problems, and reduce
the frustrations of users who can’t print
when they need to. Nearly two thirds of
businesses cite paper jams and depleted
consumables as the main cause*.
Canon’s uniFLOW Output Manager
addresses these issues, providing a clear
insight into which devices are available,
which are not, and highlights “out of
toner” problems and paper jams. Your
IT department is kept informed and, if
required, pre-defined rules can be set
up and followed for speedier resolution,
saving both time and money.
Interactive Rules and Routing
To help keep costs low for you
and your users, print jobs can be
automatically routed to the most cost efficient
devices in the office (e.g.
colour print jobs from desktop devices
to larger multifunctional printers).
Furthermore, documents can be diverted
to alternative devices (failover), in the
event of a problem such as “out of
toner, there by reducing user frustration.
Alternatively, “pop up” boxes within
this module can also be used to
proactively inform users if they’re
attempting to print somewhere,
when lower costs alternatives are
available. Their subsequent decisions
are all stored within the uniFLOW
Output Manger database, keeping
IT departments informed of their most
cost conscious users and departments.
