Good points:
Reviewer left no comment
Bad points:
Software could be a little more capable - could split bulk scans before conversion to PDF for example - but it's more than fit for purpose.

True plug-and-scan is possible by simply connecting the scanner to any PC or Mac. Canon’s unique built in CaptureOnTouch Lite software is ready to go – there’s no need to load drivers or application software.

Direct scanning to the cloud
Users have the option to scan direct to various cloud services, including Evernote, GoogleDocs™ and SharePoint. This allows information to be quickly uploaded to the cloud, for anywhere, anytime access.

Powerful software suite
The P-215 uses both ISIS and TWAIN drivers to allow for easy integration with your standard imaging application and includes a full-suite of software applications to help users work more effectively. The intuitive interface of Canon’s CaptureOnTouch software makes scanning easy. It incorporates a Full-Auto Mode function, which automatically applies the best settings to scan jobs. PageManager (Mac) and PaperPort (Windows) provides effective file management and conversion tools. While scanning business cards has never been easier with the BizCard application

Software Developer Kits
Available for CaptureOnTouch and CaptureOnTouch Lite (embedded on the scanner) allowing developers to seamlessly integrate the P-215 with custom software applications and create connectivity to 3rd party applications.
