Canon U.S.A. Enhances Enterprise Workflow with uniFLOW v5.2 Print and Scan Management Software

MELVILLE, N.Y. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — May 15, 2013 — Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, announced the release of uniFLOW v5.2 print and scan management software, offering improved installation and usability, fully integrated print room management, and enhanced mobile and cloud printing capabilities, including support for Google Cloud Print™.

Canon’s exclusive uniFLOW software provides businesses the ability to consolidate enterprise output management into a single, unified platform for device management, secure printing, document routing and accounting, mobile solutions and cloud capabilities. uniFLOW v5.2 adds production printing modules that enable organizations to manage and utilize their corporate reprographic departments (CRD) in conjunction with their office print and scan infrastructure from one platform.

“More than 1,000 improvements were made to the uniFLOW platform based on customer feedback and real-world implementations,” said Sam Yoshida, vice president and general manager, Marketing, Business Imaging Solutions Group, Canon U.S.A. “By incorporating print management, scanning workflow, mobile printing and CRD processes into one solution, uniFLOW v5.2 may help customers save on the additional training, IT infrastructure, and support costs that would likely be needed if those functions were implemented separately.”

New features and benefits of uniFLOW v5.2 include:

  • Improved Usability: End-users of uniFLOW will now see a more intuitive interface, featuring a streamlined platform that allows IT administrators to more easily configure the system through wizards without having to rely on additional support. The new Quick Start screen will take the installer, step-by-step, through the entire configuration process, simplifying setup of even the most complicated workflows.
  • New Print Room/CRD Integration: With new print room management features, uniFLOW v5.2 provides a complete, single platform solution to help organizations manage both their office print and scan infrastructure and their in-house print room operations. These features allow operators to manage their entire print room, controlling tasks that range from job submission to intake. Print volume can be more effectively managed by automatically rerouting large print jobs from office multifunction devices to a central print room. Additionally, integration with the optional Océ PRISMAprepare document preparation software can help print room operators streamline the make-ready process.
  • Enhanced Mobile/Cloud Support: uniFLOW’s existing mobile printing functionality has been further improved by providing new ways for mobile users to submit print jobs from their devices. uniFLOW 5.2 now includes support for the Google Cloud Print service, allowing customers who have purchased Google Chromebook PCs to print securely and have their jobs accounted for in the same way as other Windows or Mac users. Jobs can be submitted to Google Cloud Print from any PC running Google Chrome™ as well as Android and iOS smartphones and tablets.
  • Enhanced Scanning Functionality: Scanning has been an integral part of uniFLOW since version 5.0, and with uniFLOW v5.2, many improvements have been implemented based on customer feedback. In this release the SharePoint connection has been greatly improved, and the capability to browse and scan into any system that supports the WebDAV protocol, which is used by many document management systems, has been added.

uniFLOW v5.2 is available through Canon Authorized Dealers and Canon Solutions America. For more information please visit
