ONE PLATFORM FOR PRINTING, SCANNING, AND DEVICE MANAGEMENT
MANAGE YOUR PRINTING AND SCANNING WITH A SINGLE PLATFORM
Incorporating uniFLOW into your document processes will help improve the control and efficiency of multifunctional devices (MFDs). uniFLOW is open, modular, and configurable, and is designed to be adapted to meet specific needs of different businesses, such as large corporations, small offices, educational establishments, local government, and on-site print rooms. uniFLOW can help your organization reduce costs, implement document security features, increase employee productivity, and assist in meeting your environmental performance goals.
PRINT YOUR CONFIDENTIAL DOCUMENTS WITH SECURITY FEATURES
uniFLOW’s Secure Print functionality allows users to send sensitive documents to network printers from desktop and compatible mobile devices. Documents will only be printed when the user is physically standing at the device and authenticates. This makes uniFLOW a powerful software application with access controls that can help increase business productivity.
FLEXIBLE AUTHENTICATION AT THE DEVICE
Access to devices is easily controlled with uniFLOW. Users can choose from multiple authentication options, such as card log-in, user name/password, PIN code, job code, and anonymous log-in. These allow them to release print jobs from their personal Secure Print queues. Users can also be granted different access rights to various functions, depending on their job role.
RELEASE TO YOUR uniFLOW ENABLED DEVICES
All print jobs are stored in a user’s personal queue until they’re released at the printer of their choice, which can be on your uniFLOW enabled devices in your organization’s printer network. Embedded applets are available for various Canon devices, Océ large format printers, and selected devices from Konica Minolta, Xerox, Samsung, and OKI, among others. Users can select which of their print jobs to release from a list displayed directly on the device screen. On Canon imageRUNNER ADVANCE devices, users can change finishing options directly at the device. In the absence of an embedded platform, users can use devices connected via microMIND* or the uniFLOW Release Station,* which is a device-independent touch-screen terminal. Users can also use their compatible smartphones and tablets to release print jobs securely.
GAIN SYSTEM CONTROL
uniFLOW can monitor an entire enabled print fleet, so your organization can have an overview of every device. Any changes in a device’s status, such as errors, will be highlighted automatically, thereby triggering notifications in workflows. uniFLOW can provide control of the printing fleet by helping prevent unauthorized use of devices. Where access is granted, all usage can be recorded for later reporting and auditing

DEVICE AUDITING USING CANON’S imageWARE SAM EXPRESS
With the purchase of Canon’s imageWARE SAM Express and it’s tight integration with uniFLOW, your organization can easily record and archive all device activities, such as print, scan, fax, copy, and email. Each time an activity is carried out on a MFD, the text and image data plus login information can be documented to facilitate a thorough auditing process.
