We know that when it comes to purchasing office printers, amongst other things, businesses naturally look for a clear return on their investment (ROI). Through a number of features and optional integrated solutions on these imageRUNNER machines, users have the ability to control device access, apply print policies, monitor output and restrict usage by user. All of these features help to reduce unnecessary printing, which in turn delivers cost savings and maximises ROI! 

Before we expand on the many features and benefits, the first thing you need to know about the iR ADV C7500 III series is that it includes three models:

Their customisable 10.1 inch (25.7cm) colour WVGA smartphone-like touch screen ensures these printers are easy to use, which is proven to improve efficiency and minimise downtime in the workplace. Mobile printing and scanning are another feature that demonstrates they have been designed with the modern workforce in mind. 

We’ve highlighted some of the leading benefits of these all-in-one multifunctional devices…

Achieve excellent image quality 

Canon’s revolutionary V2 colour technology guarantees sharp and vibrant images and allows for an even wider range of colours (colour gamut). In addition to that, the Consistently Vivid (CV) toner helps achieve colour consistency and accuracy across a wide variety of media. The laser scanner uses a VCSEL (Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting LASER) as its light source, which enables 24 multi-beams resulting in high resolution output at 2,400 dpi.

Keep documents and information secure

All three devices have been designed with a range of security capabilities to help keep your business information and data safe and secure. Some of the standard security features include built-in HDD encryption, user and department ID authentication, hard drive password lock, hard drive erase, hard drive encryption, mailbox password, IP/Mac address filtering, secure print and Adobe LiveCycle Rights Management integration. Additional security features are available through the integration of UniFLOW Online Express software. 

Deliver professional documents 

You can create more professional looking documents from your own office with a range of finishing tools such as professional punching, folding, document insertion, stapling, and booklet making. The three-tray staple finisher has a capacity of 500 sheets in two trays and 3,000 sheets in a third tray and supports multi-position stapling of up to 65 sheets. The booklet finisher with saddle stitching has the same tray and stapling capacities as the stapling finisher but can also saddle stitch up to 20 sheets. A two/three-hole puncher can also be added to any unit. 

Take control of all print activity

You can take complete control of your organisation’s print management and the associated costs by optimising your devices with a secure, cloud-based solutions such as UniFLOW Online Express.
