Imaging solutions provider Canon Middle East is at this year’s Gitex to promote its latest wide-format printers and a new copier software application. Imaging solutions provider Canon Middle East is at this year’s Gitex to promote its latest wide-format printers and a new copier software application. As the company builds on its double-digit 2004 growth, Canon is also focusing this week on educating Gitex visitors about its range of business solutions. In particular, the printing giant is focusing on two new large-format printers, its very latest DIMS business scanners, and its all-new proprietary eCopy and uniFlow solutions. Canon’s W8400 and W6400 large format printers are targeted squarely at demanding users with a need for sizeable prints, whether corporate customers, print shops or fine art operations. Visitors to Canon’s stand will be able to check out these 44- and 24-inch inkjet solutions, as well as their output. The hardware vendor’s eCopy and uniFlow solutions, meanwhile, are concerned with streamlining the distribution and integration of paper documents into general business applications, and controlling printer devices by allowing IT administrators to monitor and configure which members of staff are printing what. Canon’s uniFlow solution is already available and, in addition to helping IT managers to determine who can print what within their business, it also allows the manager to monitor print costs, helping the business in turn become more efficient by better managing its costs. Canon’s all-new Document Imaging Management Systems (DIMS), the DR2580C, DR5010C and DR2050C, offer business customers high-speed scanning solutions, whatever their size. The DR2580C for instance is Canon’s first 20-40ppm scanner, while the DR5010C scanner is an even speedier 50ppm model aimed at small-to-medium sized businesses (SMBs) and the DR2050C a lower-priced version of the firm’s previous 2080C small office/home office (SOHO) model, only without the SCSI interface. According to Canon’s regional results for last year, the United Arab Emirates is currently its largest market in the Middle East, followed by Saudi Arabia and Iran. The firm’s plan now is to continue building the business and the annual Gitex show plays a key role in this. “At the show this week we hope to significantly build on our success of last year, which saw our Middle East operation record a double-digit increase throughout the region, compared to the same period in 2003,” explains Canon Middle East’s marketing manager Michel Sabbagh. “Gitex is the Middle East’s largest and most important IT trade exhibition and boosts both the local economy and the region’s IT stature, strengthening the claim of Dubai as the region’s IT hub. As a result, it is a natural place for us to be. We have always had a fantastic response from customers during our presence at the event, and having a presence gives us the opportunity to showcase our latest products face to face with them,” he adds.
