Sean Suematsu, European Document Scanning Solutions Director, Canon Europe

“Remote and flexible working has been fuelling demand for scan and access anywhere solutions. Whether you’re working in the office, from home or on the road, there is a growing need for fast, accurate and easy digitisation of documents. The ability to scan directly to the central office or to applications hosted in the cloud means that you can work more productively - no matter where you find yourself.”

“The new imageFORMULA P-215 builds on the success of the popular P-150 and P-150M models with a number of technological advancements that meet the needs of our customers for high-speed and powerful portable scanning. Professionals will also appreciate its compact size and elegant design.”
