Most business owners understand the need to be on the go at all times. Take a second now and ask yourself this question: how many hours do you spend at the office desk in a typical workday?
In fact, in this day and age, the savvy businessman hardly needs an office to do office work. We daresay that, with the array of technologies available, it is possible to run a successful business with nothing more than a laptop and smartphone. Moreover, with nearly everything existing in the cloud, migrating the enterprise to the virtual space has never been easier
That is why you want office solutions that fit your mobile working lifestyle. Here at Canon, we have a few tricks up our sleeves to help you out.
1. Show, Don’t Tell
Even the best salesperson in the world can only do so much with words. Instead of waxing lyrical about the product or service you are trying to sell, there is a far easier way to do so: show them. Canon’s RAYO i5 and i8 projectors connect wirelessly to your mobile devices, so you can project everything from images and videos to presentations onto any surfaces. The best part about this series of projectors is that each weighs in at 260g. Not only that, its compact design also means that you can literally put the projector in your pocket and carry it everywhere. Portability doesn’t get any better than this.
2. Print Anytime, Anywhere
If you have ever been on a business trip, you know that the hotel’s business centre never has a decent computer, much less a capable printer. If the clients you are meeting happen to need printed materials during your meeting, you want a compact printer that literally fits into your suitcase. Canon’s PIXMA iP110 is a portable printer designed specifically for business professionals. It hooks up with your mobile devices without a hitch. It even runs on a portable battery so that you don’t have to find a wall socket everywhere you go. And since the printer is cloud-enabled, you can even print directly from popular online services like Dropbox, Google Drive and various social media platforms.
3. Scan Anytime, Anywhere Too!
Let’s go back to hotel’s business centre for a second. Even if the hotel is somehow well equipped with the latest devices, Forbes reports that cybercriminals may utilise low-cost logging software at hotels to steal sensitive data and guest information from hotel guests. Having a portable printer and/or scanner with you, then, is not just a matter of convenience, but a matter of security also. Canon’s imageFORMULA P-215II is a portable scanner that can do nearly everything that its larger cousins can — including duplex scanning. And since it does not require additional software installation, you can simply plug it into your laptop and scan. It’s that easy.
