platform_1-01Over the years, uniFLOW has evolved to become the market-leading print and scan management product, offering a wide variety of features including secure printing, mobile printing, secure workflow-based scanning, job routing, usage accounting and print room management.

uniFLOW V5.4 further extends these features to the Océ ColorWave and PlotWave Large Format Printer range and introduces secure workflow-enabled scanning to the Canon imageFORMULA ScanFront 330 Network Scanner.

What is new with uniFLOW Version 5.4?

  • Flexible Document Scanning

uniFLOW Scan Workflows significantly enhance the document capture and information management functionality of Canon imageRUNNER ADVANCE devices, offering advanced scanning features such as batch separation, meta-data entry with data validation, conversion to editable file formats and integration with various cloud-based and on-premise document management solutions.

With uniFLOW V5.4, office workers can now benefit from these powerful features on the Canon imageFORMULA ScanFront 330 Network Scanner, experiencing the same centrally-managed secure scan workflows on the large, touch-screen display as on their Canon imageRUNNER multi-functional devices. Authentication is available with an attached proximity card reader, via PIN, or Active Directory® credentials, allowing the display of role-specific scan workflows and activity tracking against individual users.

Integrated Workflow Scanning with uniFLOW Capture

uniFLOW V5.4 adds new scan destinations to an already impressive line-up to include Microsoft SharePoint® Online, SharePoint® 2013, OneDrive® for Business and Therefore™ Online. In addition, Therefore™ scanning now features Case Management support for both on-premise and cloud variants.

  • Enhanced Office Printing

uniFLOW V5.4 brings secure printing and job accounting features to the Océ ColorWave and Océ PlotWave Large Format Printer family. The embedded applet on the large touch screen of these devices provides a familiar print release interface, with multi-level cost center support, job accounting and reporting.

A highly flexible card identity self-management interface has been introduced so users can register multiple identity cards directly from the Canon device touch screen. Users can now register temporary cards or additional building access cards themselves. uniFLOW can remove temporary cards out-of-hours for re-allocation to other users.

  • Integrated Production Printing

One of the key features of the uniFLOW platform are the built-in print room management capabilities. uniFLOW’s print room features have now been enhanced as uniFLOW V5.4 offers an integration with Océ PRISMA®direct. In an environment where uniFLOW is used for managing office printing and scanning and Océ PRISMAdirect is used to manage the print room, Océ PRISMAdirect can make use of uniFLOW’s user, group, cost center and budget data whilst uniFLOW can make use of accounting data received from Océ PRISMAdirect. With the integration all base data management and reporting is carried out by the one system – uniFLOW – so optimizing IT resources.

Key Improvements and Benefits of uniFLOW Version 5.4:

  • New support for the Canon imageFORMULA ScanFront Network Scanners brings the power of uniFLOW workflow scanning to these already impressive network document scanners.
  • Extension of uniFLOW Secure Printing to the Océ PlotWave and Océ ColorWave Large Format Printers, with accounting for print, copy and scan jobs.
  • New identity card management features to provide simple self-service for users to manage permanent and temporary identity cards.
  • Additional scan destinations now include Microsoft SharePoint® Online, SharePoint® 2103, OneDrive® for Business and Therefore™ Online, allowing users to scan directly to the correct back-end system, improving overall office productivity.
  • Integration with Océ PRISMAdirect so that all base data management and reporting is handled by one system – uniFLOW
