Canon Introduces Next-Generation of Therefore Online
Canon U.S.A. today introduced the next generation of Therefore Online, its cloud-based information-management solution that it introduced in 2014, Therefore 2018.
The firm notes that the consumerization of IT is transforming the way workers collaborate and share information, with 68 percent of U.S. chief information officers and senior IT decision makers surveyed citing profitability and productivity as key benefits to using the cloud in business processes over the next two to five years, according to research conducted by market-research firm IDC.
With this latest release, Therefore Online now includes a multi-language feature, which provides for cloud collaboration with popular EFSS providers such as Box and Microsoft OneDrive, as well as a bi-directional Therefore Portal for customers where they can both upload and access information to folders that they have access to, based on their user login credentials.
The solution’s direct integration with Canon’s document-capture and distribution software, uniFLOW, allows for the automation of many common customer workflows, such as paperwork related to invoice processing, purchase-to-pay, HR onboarding, sales-order processing, general business communications, and approval processes.
Other benefits of Therefore 2018 include direct access to office documents from Therefore Navigator, the ability to edit documents in Therefore Web Access, the ability to integrate with compatible DocuSign software, new index data types, and the ability to stamp PDF documents automatically in a workflow.
In addition, the recently released version of Therefore Online SMBv2 comes pre-configured with six horizontally focused folders with 21 categories with index values. This enterprise information management, automation, and business analytics solution minimizes the complexity often associated with typical information management solutions.
Therefore 2018 is now available for purchase through Canon authorized dealer channels and Canon Solutions America. Prices are set by dealers and may vary.
