If you manage an IT network, very likely you have mission-critical responsibilities that demand your focus and attention. Minor printer or copier issues can take up time and resources that could be better spent elsewhere. So why not take advantage of tools that make it easy to streamline and automate output device management?
Do you use several different device management utilities? Or worse, do you administer network output devices manually, one at a time? If you manage more than one device, the powerful, easy-to-use network and device management solutions from Canon will help simplify your work life, freeing you to focus on higher-level business priorities.
With Canon device management solutions, you can discover, install, configure, manage, and monitor all network output devices across your entire organization from a single web-enabled location. Now you can improve your effectiveness by automating many common tasks and proactively monitoring devices to ensure maximum uptime for your users.
Chances are you need to add new devices, set up new employees, and establish new processes regularly. Canon device management solutions streamline these processes with tools that automatically discover devices, update Address Books, and synchronize saved shortcuts across your organization. Now you can turn projects that were once a chore – including meter reading or print driver updates – into automated, scheduled tasks that occur at off-peak usage times.
Nothing disrupts an otherwise productive workday quite like a help desk call that might have been prevented. Canon device management solutions can automatically generate email reports and text message notifications that give you precise information about problems with your devices. Find out if machines are low on toner or if parts need to be replaced soon. As a continually informed administrator, you'll help reduce surprises, maximize device uptime, and boost organizational efficiency.
