“For each guide, our team of office equipment researchers and editors come together to select those models that serve as a benchmark of high quality, exceptional performance and real value. These models are awarded the Better Buys for Business Editor's Choice Award - now recognized as the most coveted distinction in the office equipment industry,” said Stephen Hannaford, editor in chief, Better Buys for Business “Due to an oversight, the Canon awards did not appear in the initial printing of the guide but do appear in subsequent copies.” More businesses are looking to reduce their use of paper, and take advantage of the efficiencies offered by high-volume document scanning. In 2006 the Canon Image Filing Systems division recorded an increase in DR-Series Scanners sales of over 35%, compared to 2005. The Canon division also expects to see similar marketshare growth of its high-speed scanners.
