TO help customers all over the Philippines make and save money, Canon Marketing (Philippines) Inc. is offering “Canon Cloud,” an application that helps even small businesses store and manage data.
On October 20 at the Canon Head office in McKinley Hill Taguig, Canon Marketing partnered with Tech One Global Phils. Inc. to bring Canon Cloud powered by Enadoc to the local market.
Canon Cloud is a paperless data-management system that aims to help customers, including small and medium enterprises (SMEs), to manage their files and information efficiently and cost-effectively. The incorporation of Enadoc, a cloud-based document imaging system, will power Canon scanners and copiers to store and save data to a secure cloud server, making it easier for businesses and customers to access and retrieve data anytime and without their having to worry about files getting lost.
Canon Marketing has been operating in the Philippines since 1996.
Lars Jeppesen, Tech One Global CEO, said that with the Philippines being an area where natural calamities frequent, businesses should make sure that their important files and documents are kept in a safe and secure place.
After being hit by Supertyphoon Yolanda, businesses in Tacloban had to start all over again because all their tangible data were wiped out. With Canon Cloud, customers need no longer have to worry about that happening again. With data stored in the cloud, their files were backed up and properly secured. Both SMEs and government agencies are also gearing toward cloud based data management to make their information filing easier. Lim Kok Hin, president and CEO of Canon Marketing Philippines, said the Canon head office had eliminated around 80 cabinets to 100 cabinets since they started going paperless and storing their files in the cloud. It made more space for more staff or opened up a new conference room or pantry. The company saved more money going paperless and they no longer need to fear that their tangible documents might disintegrate due to accidents someday.
For as low as P5,000 a month for one year for the entry-level products, the customer gets 75 gigabytes of storage space in the cloud and two libraries with two user licensees, which roughly can store about half a million documents.
It is also equipped with security features that make sure hackers cannot compromise the privacy of the customers’ documents and keep them from stealing information.
The Canon Cloud gives customers convenience, efficiency and a secure backup. Both a product and a service, the Canon Cloud gives customers the freedom to manage their data and information properly.
