Canon Demonstrates How AI Can Be Used by Customers to Take Control of their Workflow Processes, Transforming the Future of Work
Canon Showcases Travel and Expense Automation Solutions at Oracle OpenWorld 2018
MELVILLE, N.Y., OCTOBER 22, 2018 -- Canon Information and Imaging Solutions (CIIS), a wholly owned subsidiary of Canon U.S.A., Inc., demonstrates how artificial intelligence and workflow automation can aid customers in taking the next step towards the future of business at Oracle OpenWorld 2018 in Moscone South, booth #3013, from October 22-25. CIIS executives and CIIS Solutions Partners are on hand to discuss how expertise in imaging and emerging technologies, along with partner relationships, can be leveraged to enable businesses to take greater control of their processes.
Control over Financial Processes
Canon’s Mobile Travel and Expense Automation Solution was developed to address the inefficient and slow manual paper based expense process. The solution enables the mobile capture of information at the point of transaction and improves compliance with company policy and regulatory requirements. In addition to Travel and Expense processes, CIIS showcases solutions designed to enable greater control of financial and procure-to-pay processes, such as Accounts Payable Solutions for Oracle E-Business Suite, JD Edwards and PeopleSoft. By integrating accounts payable automation with ERP, the solutions not only expedite invoice processing for customers, but also significantly increase their control over AP operations, cash, and risk.
Control over Email and Cloud Content
Managing email communications within enterprises can be a challenge – email is difficult to organize, search, and govern. The Email and Cloud Content Management solutions showcased at OpenWorld leverage Canon’s relationships with mxHero and Box to provide powerful content management and security features, integrate email content with cloud storage, file and retrieve emails, and track and control email messages even after delivery.
Control – Powered by Canon Artificial Intelligence
Looking further into the future, CIIS is showcasing its emerging technologies, powered by Canon Artificial Intelligence. These include intelligent solutions for manufacturing that employ machine learning, such as the Assisted Defect Recognition that can intelligently analyze images of inspected parts as part of a quality control process, and automatically identify defects. Additionally, the AI-powered Smart Document Assistant solution for Legal is designed to help law professionals classify, access and respond to critical information faster and with greater accuracy. It achieves this by employing machine learning to intelligently automate the process of categorizing content and making contextual associations with content housed in company data stores. The software can even learn who should know about a specific document’s arrival and notify the appropriate personnel. Another AI powered solution showcased in the Canon booth is the Predictive Maintenance and Support Services used to automate field service operations.
“Businesses are under incredible pressure to improve processes and create efficiencies. Emerging technologies based on AI create an opportunity for unprecedented levels of automation, when combined with business process expertise”, said Kenji Sato, president and CEO of Canon Information and Imaging Solutions, Inc. “Canon has a legacy of tying together world-class digital imaging technologies with innovation and business process experience, and we are dedicated to working with our partners to create innovative business solutions for our mutual clients.
