  • This Canon scanner is designed to make users more productive, by incorporating heavy duty feed rollers and a solid paper transport meaning it is dependable and able to take on heavy workloads

Sean Suematsu, European Document Scanning Solutions Director, Canon Europe said:
“We wanted to introduce a scanner that uses innovative design to deliver the smallest of footprint when scanning. The imageFORMULA DR-C125’s vertical J-Path design saves the desk space that is normally required for traditional desktop scanners – enabling our customers to benefit from document scanning in restricted desk spaces whether that be in busy office environments, small home offices or customer service counters. The imageFORMULA DR-C125 stands alone in the market thanks to its unique combination of space-saving design, powerful software and its extreme ease of use.”
“Many organisations are now looking to implement a more de-centralised approach to scanning, to immediately capture critical business documents straight from an employee’s desk into their digital workflows. The launch of our flagship A4 desktop scanner – the imageFORMULA DR-M160 – offers unrivalled reliability and productivity through its robust yet compact design, enabling organisations become more efficient in the way they work.”
