Canon authorized service providers are equipped with a number of remote diagnostic tools to help them service Canon equipment so that they can respond to issues quickly, help save time, and deliver a high level of device performance.

Automation of Time-Intensive Tasks

Canon can help minimize the time needed to obtain meter readings, resolve printing errors and paper jams, update and configure print devices, and monitor the status of supplies. Many of these processes can be automated so that you should be able to devote your resources to more strategic tasks that are important to your business.

Greater First-Call Resolution

With Canon’s Remote Services tools, authorized dealer technicians have access to machine service data right from their mobile devices. This often allows them to diagnose the problem and obtain the proper parts before arriving at your site. As a result, many problems can be addressed faster and resolved the first time.

Optimum Device Performance

Using Canon’s Remote Services tools, authorized dealer technicians are typically able to minimize downtime of equipment. These services help your Canon devices to provide consistent, reliable performance day in and day out.

Canon’s SnapShot tool gives authorized dealer service technicians direct access to equipment service data right from their mobile devices. This can help them to identify the issue before arriving on-site, so that they go to your location with the correct tools and parts.

As a result, problems are typically resolved faster and require fewer service calls than in the past.
