Canon U.S.A. Announces Availability of New Touchless MFP Operation with the Canon PRINT Business App

Melville, NY (Jan. 7, 2021) — As its customers continue to look for ways to leverage their office multifunction printers (MFPs) while also helping minimize touchpoints, Canon U.S.A. Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, is excited to announce the availability of its Remote Operation feature, now available with the free Canon PRINT Business App.

To help users work more efficiently and with safety in mind, the app’s new Remote Operation feature allows users to control the imageRUNNER ADVANCE user interface from their compatible smartphone or tablet without having to touch the shared control panel. As an added convenience, the user interface on the MFP control panel is replicated on and operable from the compatible mobile device, in real-time and for any device function.

This new feature adds to the existing capabilities native to the app, including printing from and scanning to the mobile device and cloud storage locations, which are useful for those using imageRUNNER ADVANCE models in the office, or imageCLASS models* at home.

Easy to use and free to download, the Canon PRINT Business App reflects the company’s commitment to providing innovative solutions designed to meet customer demands in the ever-changing business environment.
