Designed to boost productivity in the office, Canon multifunctional devices and printers offer businesses of all sizes a wide range of impressive devices built on an intelligent platform to support and complement every stage of the document life cycle. uniFLOW Online extends Canon devices with access control, easy to use scanning capabilities and integrated cost tracking.
Getting started with uniFLOW Online could not be easier with tenant creation and adding devices initiated from Canon devices. In order to reduce pressure on small IT departments, user creation and management can also be carried out from Canon devices by end-users. In addition, all businesses benefit by being able to manage their tenants, including devices and users, centrally in the cloud.
uniFLOW Online has been developed from the ground-up to enhance the benefits of cloud technology. All tenants are logically isolated from each other and the public cloud ensures the latest version is always available, providing superior enterprise platform security, scalability and resilience. When using uniFLOW Online’s innovative technology there is no requirement for a local server. Print jobs are stored locally on the client's PC or a supporting Canon imageRUNNER ADVANCE. Print jobs can also be released even when there is no connection to uniFLOW Online.
Unique technologies answer the concerns of IT leaders and business owners when contemplating a cloud-based print and scan management solution. uniFLOW Online utilizes local infrastructure for job submission whilst the main uniFLOW Online portal is hosted in a regional data center.
uniFLOW Online allows businesses to manage multiple sites centrally within one tenant by using the locations feature. Businesses are free to define their locations. A location can be for example a company site, a building, a department or a floor.
uniFLOW Online allows administrators to mix ‘n match different setups based on location. Some locations might be running a small yet powerful software called uniFLOW SmartClient while others make use of Direct Secure Print offering ‘My Print Anywhere’ functionality without client-software. Each location can be configured independently from each other, providing greater flexibility.
All print jobs i.e. mobile print jobs, cloud print jobs and jobs send from a client PC, are stored in a user’s personal secure queue until the user is ready to release them at a printer of their choice. Users can select which of their print jobs to release from a list displayed directly on the device screen. If required, finishing options can be altered directly at the device without the need to resubmit the print job, saving valuable time.
With My Print Anywhere, print jobs follow users from device to device allowing print jobs to be released at any printer within a user’s location. Even when working at another location, users will find their personal secure print queues when using uniFLOW SmartClient, Mobile Printing or Print from Cloud. uniFLOW SmartClient is location aware so will update its configurations when it is used in another location. Thus, My Print Anywhere makes Secure Printing convenient for users whilst on the move.

uniFLOW Online is an integrated part of Canon devices but can also be used in a mixed-fleet environment by using the uniFLOW Release Station.
Canon devices are designed to increase office productivity. uniFLOW Online further enhances office thanks to additional features including access control, secure printing, easy-to-use scanning and integrated cost tracking. In a mixed-fleet printer environment, the uniFLOW Release Station provides comparable options as embedded applets. Thus, the uniFLOW Release Station takes over device authentication control and the secure print functionality so that the business and its users benefit from the flexibility of true ‘My Print Anywhere’ output across all platforms and increased document security.
In situations where secure printing is not required, any multivendor device regardless of the model can be used to print directly to. Upon sending a print job, a user can select the output device using a single driver. Printed documents are accounted for.
