Canon U.S.A. is introducing Therefore Online SMB, an information-management and workflow application that it says will help small and mid-size businesses “work smarter” by providing a ready-to-use, scalable solution that simplifies content capture and storage while helping to improve business processes.
For many years, Canon’s existing Therefore solution is said to have been used by companies to streamline the flow of information and improve efficiency related to the storage and retrieval of information, electronic forms handling, automating workflows, and more.
Designed to be up and running in 24 to 48 hours, the new pre-configured Therefore Online SMB is said to provide simpler setup, and is designed for companies with minimal IT support.
Providing the same tools as Therefore 2016, Therefore Online SMB is the first Therefore version to come ready to use with key settings already pre-configured, reducing setup time. Features include structured index fields, full text search, mobile access, and automatic version control
An important component is that Therefore Online SMB integrates with Canon’s portfolio of software solutions, including uniFLOW and imageRUNNER ADVANCE Desktop, as well as with third-party integrations such as Microsoft Power BI and DocuSign, which will enable organizations to leverage their current investments in their business analytics and electronic-signature tools.
The key benefits of Therefore Online SMB include:
- Pre-configuration options: Therefore Online SMB is pre-configured with six horizontally focused folders and 20 corresponding categories, all of which are fully indexed and ready to use within 24 to 48 hours of purchase.
- Centralized, access controlled document storage: regardless of the source or format, Therefore Online SMB provides an access-controlled, offsite file repository, which is key for disaster-recovery.
- Minimized IT expenditures: eliminates the need for server administration and expensive hardware
- Therefore Online SMB’s features can be used by small and mid-size size businesses as well as by larger enterprises, and functions such as a workflow or electronic-signature components can be added when needed.
