BLI recently announced its Winter 2013 “Pick” awards honoring the top-performing solutions tested by BLI in the previous six-month period.
This year, Canon won BLI’s most coveted solutions award: Solutions Line of the Year. To determine the Solutions Line of the Year winner, BLI’s highly experienced staff of technicians and editors considered the imaging software each leading printer and MFP OEM officially sells and supports via its direct and independent sales channels. The OEM’s own products, as well as products from partner ISVs (independent software vendors), were taken into account in categories that include document management, capture and workflow, accounting, cost control and recovery, print management, device management and mobile printing. OEMs that fared best in BLI’s rankings offer customers a wide range of solutions in each category and those solutions proved to be robust and of high quality. Solutions submitted to BLI’s lab for evaluation carry the most weight in the OEMs’ overall ranking.
In the individual solutions categories BLI covers, winners of Outstanding product awards were Canon/NT-ware, EFI, Kodak, Lexmark, Nuance, OKI, Samsung and Square 9. Also in this season’s awards, HP was commended for its Imaging & Printing Security Center solution with an Outstanding Achievement award.
