Canon Professional Services in Malta

Are you a CPS card holder? Avantech OFFERS local benefits

 

What is CPS?
Canon Professional Services (CPS) is a free Canon service, created to support professional photographers across Europe using selected Canon equipment types.
Canon has seen potential in the local Canon community and Malta has recently been added to the CPS country registration list.
We encourage each and every Canon user to register his/her equipment here.

Why Register?
• It’s free
• Help support the Canon photo-video community in Malta
• You benefit from advantages made available to CPS members in selected countries around the world such as access to CPS support teams at major international and local events; a priority repair service; and depending on your level of CPS membership, free back-up equipment loans during repairs.

How to register

FAQs
If I have purchased my products from overseas, and not from Avantech, can I still register my equipment?
Yes, regardless of where or when your equipment was purchased you can still register it.
Does everyone qualify as a CPS member?
There are three tiers of membership available: silver, gold and platinum. To qualify, one must have a minimum amount of equipment; both for photo or video.

Why should I register if I do not qualify?
Our goal is to be able to provide full CPS benefits locally as offered in other countries. This can only be achieved if we have a certain number of registered Canon users, regardless of if they qualify or not, who have registered their equipment on the CPS website.

As a CPS member registered in Malta, what does the Canon CPS offer?
In countries where a full CPS service is offered, you benefit from the full range of advantages according to your CPS qualification level. In Malta Canon do not yet offer a full CPS service – however at Avantech we are working hard with Canon to change this for the better. Our first step was to get Canon users in Malta recognized internationally, and this has been achieved through the Malta CPS scheme. In addition we have added our own extra benefits to CPS Malta members (see above). We will continue to work hard with Canon to constantly improve the support services we offer in Malta, with additional benefits for CPS members.

We encourage all Canon users to register their equipment on the CPS website. Whilst one has to own a specified number of professional equipment to qualify; each and every Canon EOS or video owner can nonetheless register his equipment and help support the Canon photo community in Malta.
