Fairfield, NJ – For the third year in a row, Canon is the winner of the Keypoint Intelligence – Buyers Lab (BLI) Copier MFP Line of the Year. BLI, the world’s leading authority on document imaging devices and software solutions, presents its most coveted Line of the Year honor once annually to the vendor whose product line is determined to be the best overall, with models at every level that excel in BLI’s rigorous laboratory evaluations.


“The models in Canon’s copier MFP line are running three years strong as trailblazers in their respective segments,” said George Mikolay, Associate Director of Copiers/Production for Keypoint Intelligence- Buyers Lab. “Each of the 14 current models BLI tested tout easily-replaceable components, extraordinarily comprehensive usability, and an astonishing overall misfeed rate of just 1 every 426,000 impressions, making them some of the most productive and reliable machines to pass through our labs to date. The surplus of workflow-expediting, cost-cutting solutions each device supports are the icing on the cake, and the machines will produce high quality printed and copied output that businesses of all types will be ecstatic about.”

Canon currently has a total of 13 Copier MFP Pick awards. In addition, all 14 of Canon’s Copier MFP models tested have earned a Highly Recommended rating.

“We are honored to receive the BLI award for Copier MFP Line of the Year for the third consecutive year,” said Toyotsugu Kuwamura, Executive Vice President and General Manager, Business Imaging Solutions Group, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “It is with great pride that we continue to develop efficient and customizable office solutions that keep digital security top of mind and can readily help businesses to streamline workflow operations in the era of the Office of the Future.”
