uniFLOW Online: 5 years of technology leadership

uniFLOW Online, one of the world's first 100% cloud-based print and scan management platforms, has since its launch in 2016, been enriched with a multitude of features to provide today a comprehensive solution for the evolving needs of our customers. Continuous development has made it the preferred cloud print and scan management solution for thousands of customers worldwide, with already more than 35,000 devices connected.

In the beginning, it focused on user authentication, secure and mobile and email printing, and accounting for small and medium-sized businesses. Today, this versatile and feature-rich platform, hosted on regional Microsoft Azure™data centres, has grown to include a wide range of scanning applications, easy driver deployment, print from cloud, and support for various job submission pathways. That way, it can cater to the needs of even the large, worldwide operating enterprise customers.

Taking cloud scanning to the next level

In addition to the advanced secure and mobile/email printing functionalities, uniFLOW Online offers a broad set of powerful scanning features. These allow users to scan documents directly to their email or desktop PC, or a wide variety of cloud destinations, including Box, Dropbox, Google Drive™, Microsoft Exchange® Online, Microsoft OneDrive® for Business, Microsoft Teams®, and Microsoft SharePoint® Online. Users can benefit from automatic background image processing options, including image clean-up, compression, conversion, and automatic cropping of receipts. On top, the unique text-block OCR selection can be used for scanning batches of repetitive documents and allows users to populate document file name and metadata easily.

Highlights recognised by Keypoint Intelligence

The BLI report emphasises that uniFLOW Online offers a consistent user interface, whether users work in the office or at home. Further strong points are the integration with Microsoft® Teams and Universal Print by Microsoft®, print restriction from specific cloud services, and the uniFLOW Online Print & Scan App for submission and release of print jobs.

In addition, uniFLOW Online excels in securing devices against unauthorised use by supporting multi-factor authentication (MFA). Moreover, secure and touchless printing is one of the software's primary tasks in an organisation.
