Maxify printers will help small set-ups streamline their printing infrastructure and increase employee productivity by leveraging the high-volume efficient color network-printing feature. We anticipate greater adoption of mobile and cloud printing among SOHOs with the launch of Maxify printers.”

Canon wants to tap this opportunity. With our new Maxify series, we will help SOHOs across different verticals get advanced security, network- and cloud-connectivity features, and reduced print cost. They will get professional-quality documents and fast print speeds, along with the ability to extend their office beyond its physical location. With Maxify printers, SOHOs will save up to 50 percent on print cost.”
