Canon’s A3 Line of Printers Wins Prestigious Industry Award!

By innov8 Events, Printers & MFP, Company News  |  February 19, 2020

innov8 Digital Solutions is excited to announce that Canon’s A3 imageRUNNER ADVANCE Printers—a line we are proud to carry—has been named the 2020 Copier MFP Line of the Year by Keypoint Intelligence - Buyers Laboratory for the fourth time in the last five years! Buyers Lab has been the global document imaging industry’s resource for unbiased and reliable information for over 50 years, and as expected, rigorous laboratory evaluations were conducted to determine the winning Copier MFP line for 2020. Specifically, the team of researchers explored product reliability, security, maintenance procedures, device management, ease of use, design, and universal capabilities. 


Earning the title of best overall for the A3 line highlights Canon’s signature reliability and ongoing commitment to meeting business needs, so much so that Canon’s copier MFP line is described as being “the standard-bearer in the industry” by Keypoint Intelligence. 


In addition to the Copier MFP Line of the year award, Canon also received three awards for its complementary printer software line in the categories of Outstanding Cloud Output Management, Information Governance, and Scan Capture and Processing. These three Document Imaging Software Pick Awards serve to further cement Canon’s position not only as a best-in-class printer manufacturer, but also as an industry leader in printer software expertly designed to further improve workflow efficiency, address security concerns, and help control costs.

An award-winning printer to meet a variety of business’ needs

The versatility of Canon’s A3 imageRUNNER ADVANCE printer line means there is a multi-function printer to meet various business’ needs:


For large enterprises: Colour imageRUNNER ADVANCE C7570i III


This MFP copies and prints in both black and colour—80ppm in black and 70ppm in colour—up to 13”x19”. Standard paper input starts with a dual 1,100-sheet paper tray, dual 550-sheet paper trays and a 250-sheet bypass for 3,550 sheets, with options to add a 3,500-sheet paper deck and a 6,000-sheet paper deck for a maximum of 9,300 sheets. 


The imageRUNNER ADVANCE C7570i is intended for environments with very high-volume printing needs, where the highest quality is required. As such, it would be too much printer for a small or medium-sized business as there would be too many features that would be left unused. 


For mid-sized businesses: Colour imageRUNNER ADVANCE C5550i III Series (C5535i, C5550i, C5560i)


Printing up to 60 ppm in black or colour on sizes up to 12” x 18”, and with a maximum sheet capacity of 6,350, this all-in-one printer series focuses strongly on improving data security and office productivity and would be well-suited to medium-sized office environments that have mid-volume print requirements.


For small businesses: Colour imageRUNNER ADVANCE C3530i III


Printing up to 30 ppm in black and colour on sizes up to 12’ x 18’, the strong and flexible features of the imageRUNNER ADVANCE C3530i III, with a 2,300-sheet maximum paper capacity, will help smaller offices with low to mid-volume print needs achieve maximum productivity.
