Canon announces the launch of Therefore Online in Latin America

This cloud-based solution helps organizations work smarter by improving the storage, management and processing of information

MELVILLE, N.Y., April 3, 2018 – Canon U.S.A., Inc. – Latin America Group is pleased to announce the availability of Therefore™ Online—a cloud-based version of Canon’s exclusive information management solution.

Therefore™ Online provides users the same benefits and functionality of the Therefore™ Enterprise Edition, but without the need to invest and maintain internal IT infrastructure and personnel. Available on an annual-subscription basis, Therefore™ Online provides workflow management capabilities that help improve customer business processes and help dealers grow their professional services offerings.

Key Features of Therefore™ Online Information Management:

  • Information Capture: Place information into Therefore™ Online either by using imageRUNNER ADVANCE or imageRUNNER MFPs, a Canon imageFORMULA DR Series document scanner, or by directly uploading existing, electronic documents. Documents can then be classified, indexed and archived, to ensure optimal workflows.
  • Find & Edit: The Therefore™ Navigator enables users to easily find information, similar to popular search engines, or by using specific index data associated with the content that is being sought. The Therefore™ Viewer is used to view, edit and check in/out documents. Documents can be opened and edited in their familiar, native applications, making it easy to make revisions.
  • Security: Therefore™ Online securely stores documents and offers complete control over document access. Permission settings are easily configurable and highly customizable, ensuring that only authorized persons are given access to view and/or modify specific documents or content. Additional security features include audit trails, version control, digital signatures, and retention policy compliance.
  • Workflows: Therefore™ Workflow enables the design and optimization of document or information business processes—automating how information is routed throughout an organization. Standard with Therefore™ Online is the ability to create unlimited number of workflows.
  • Mobility: Therefore™ Web Access enables remote access to the Therefore™ Online system via the most popular web browsers. The Therefore™ Mobile App (for iPhone®, iPad®, Android™ and Windows® Phone devices) enables users to search and view documents and participate in workflows, all from their mobile device. Therefore™ Anywhere allows users to take documents offline and edit them when away from their network. Once reconnected, all changes are automatically synchronized to the system.
  • Integration: Therefore™ Online integrates with numerous applications, programs and solutions, including Windows Explorer, Microsoft® Office and third-party scanning solutions such as eCopy™ Pro Office and uniFLOW.

Therefore™ Online SMBv2
With the enhancements made in Therefore™ Online SMBv2, Canon has made it even easier to provide this powerful solution to your customers and prospects. Therefore™ Online SMBv2 comes preconfigured with 6 horizontally focused folders with 21 categories, all preconfigured with the appropriate index values. OSMBv2 also comes standard with 5 NEW prebuilt reports and an e-form “right out of the box”.


  • Therefore™ Online SMB Named: Comes with a Therefore™ Online Tenant, 5 named user licenses, 6 prebuilt folders, 21 preset categories appropriately indexed, 5 prebuilt reports, 1 preset e-form and 50GB of storage.
