SINGAPORE, 4 September 2019 – Canon today announced the launch of three new A4 monochrome laser multi-function printers, the imageCLASS MF543x, MF449x and MF445dw. Built perfectly for the Small Medium Enterprises (SMEs) and workgroups within large enterprises, the latest range of smart all-in-one printers improve daily operations, user experience and cost efficiency for businesses desiring high productivity and performance.
“One of the most effective ways to simplify work tasks is to simplify the workflows that employees have to deal with on a day-to-day basis,” said Toshiaki Nomura, Director, Regional BIS Sales & Marketing, Canon Singapore. “Designed to deliver maximum operational efficiency, the latest imageCLASS MF543x, MF449x and MF445dw in our smart printer lineup promises streamlined work processes, breaking down complex workflows to single-step operations. By automating repetitive work tasks, we aim to help companies eliminate time-consuming work, and enable their employees to focus on their core business for driving the much-needed productivity.”
Raising Operational Efficiency
Meeting the needs of today’s fast-paced work environments, the imageCLASS MF543x, MF449x and MF445dw allow users to complete tasks faster with less waiting time. Featuring quick single pass scanning of two-sided documents and swift printing speeds of up to 43 pages per minute (ppm), the high-performance printers help busy offices breeze through heavy workloads. Coupled with various combinations of paper cassette options, the printers allow up to a maximum of 2,300 sheets for efficient paper handling. The smart printers also support a hassle-free toner replacement process, facilitating the removal of protective toner seals automatically, and allowing work to resume quickly with minimal manual handling.
Incorporating QR Code Scan and NFC Touch & Print features, the new printers ensure easy device pairing with the Canon PRINT Business app for mobile printing. Other mobile printing solutions supported by the printers include Google Cloud Print™, Apple® AirPrint™ and Mopria® Print Service, enabling users to perform daily tasks wirelessly from any connected device with absolute ease.
Additionally, the intelligent printers help users streamline workflows and simplify work tasks effortlessly. With the pre-installed Application Library, users can customise and create various one-touch solutions that effectively automate tasks according to individual work requirements. Notably, the Scan to Preset Destination allows users to scan documents with preferred settings and send to pre-defined destinations, simplifying scanning workflows by converting multiple steps into a one-step operation for maximum efficiency.
Boosting User Convenience
Equipped with a large 5-inch colour touchscreen LCD, the imageCLASS MF543x, MF449x and MF445dw offer a great user experience with simple navigation across the intuitive user interface. Smartphone-like virtual QWERTY keyboard and the display of high resolution icons in a neat layout provide users with superb ease of use. Available as a shortcut on the home screen, the printers allow users to make copies of identification cards and passports in various layouts via a quick one-touch operation. Supporting greater convenience, users can easily preview PDF files from their USB memory media before sending the documents for print.
Achieving Desired Cost-effectiveness
With high-yield toner cartridges, users can print more documents in between toner replacements, achieving cost efficiency with increased page yield and reduced cost per print. The imageCLASS MF543x, MF449x and MF445dw also allow users to preview stored faxes and delete unnecessary faxes before printing to avoid print wastage. Additionally, with Department ID, administrators can implement restrictions on functions for different departments such as limiting print function, and set print quotas to minimise wastage.
The latest imageCLASS MF543x, MF449x and MF445dw are estimated to be available from September 2019.
