Device Touchpoint Awareness

Canon has several ways we can help you protect your staff while using their printers in the workplace.


Minimising Device Touchpoints


At Canon we understand that companies are rapidly acting to protect staff wellbeing by thinking of ways to prevent the spread of possible infection in the workplace. In addition to cleaning guidance for our products, we can also offer solutions that help minimise the number of touchpoints with your Canon devices. Read on to find out more about how we can support you and your return to the workplace.

Canon Print Business App

Using the Canon Print Business App you are able to print jobs with your mobile without having to touch the device. You can release print jobs stored in your secure output queue and also work with files in local or cloud storage. Available on both iOS and Android devices the app detects printers nearby or on a network, or you can manually search for them by specifiying the IP address or scanning a device that has been labelled with a QR code. Get in touch to learn more.

uniFLOW Mobile App

The uniFLOW mobile print application brings enterprise level print management functionality to users’ smartphones. Supporting both iOS, Android and Windows you can print from any location and securely release print jobs from your personal secure print queue. The uniFLOW app allows you to release your documents to any device connected to a uniFLOW server from your mobile or tablet. You also have an added option of scanning a QR code on the printer screen avoiding contact with the device.

Login and Print

Another way to reduce the the number of touchpoints is to amend the settings on your device so there is no need for colleagues to select specific print jobs to release by touching the screen. Simply set your device to release all print jobs from the user's personal queue as soon as they log in at the device. Combine print & release with proximity card authentication for a completely touch free solution. Find out how we can help you set up automatic release following login by getting in touch below.

Proximity Card

Proximity cards allow users to login to the device without having to enter a PIN. By presenting their personal card on the reader they are able to login without touching the device. If you are using PIN authentication contact us to discuss setting up this touch free solution.

Personal Home Screen & Stylus

Set up personal or company wide shortcuts that reduce the number of touches required to activate frequent tasks, such as scanning to an email. Users can also drag-and-drop icons to keep favourites on their home screen. The timeline feature remembers recent job history so that users can recall previous settings with one touch.
