Enterprise Imaging Platform

Canon’s latest imaging technologies have been combined with Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) to create Enterprise Imaging Platform (EIP). This innovative middleware platform can automate complex business processes by integrating enterprise applications and paper based information flows.

A Value-Added Middleware Platform Developed by Canon

Companies can benefit not only through significant cost savings and increased efficiencies but also gain business intelligence by bringing together vital information previously scattered across various back end systems and/or stored on paper or electronic documents.

In fact, because EIP is a platform, it is easy to develop and enhance complex business solutions to automate your organization’s document related workflows. The platform supports integration with cloud applications, mobile devices, and can readily connect with the applications already existing in your environment.

EIP Can Help Your Organization

  • Connect information stored in multiple enterprise applications, such as ERP, CRM, ECM, and enable easy access to information, when and where needed.
  • Connect enterprise applications to input and output devices and to your workforce. This can help optimize business processes in their entirety, including the paper-based, previously manual operations.
  • Streamline your company’s document-centric business workflows, to help save time and money!
  • Limit the number of human errors associated with manual, cumbersome paper handling.
  • Bring together information from various systems and documents, to enable increased business intelligence and info sharing.
  • Integrate accounting, procurement, and other applications with paper and electronic invoices, sales order, and other documents.
  • Auto-classify, sort, and automatically distribute documents, based on document type and extracted content.
  • Archive documents and metadata into various enterprise applications and databases.
  • Create new documents that combine information from multiple applications (ERP, CRM, ECM, etc.) into a portable format (PDF or Excel) that is easy to print, email, fax or archive.
  • Integrate input/output devices, such as printers, scanners or fax machines and their various functional capabilities into the business automation realm.
  • Integrate multiple enterprise applications with document-based processes within one automated business solution.
  • Integrate at a low cost, with limited custom development using SOA (web services and process manager) technology.
  • Easily create, maintain and modify complex business solutions, which will help you to quickly adapt to changes in your business.
