Please add a comment explaining the reason behind your vote.
Installed and registered without problems on a Win 8.1.3 Pro 64 bit system. A clean install.
A (Russian/Spanish)) company without name and address:
"The BlackParrot Software company develops home and office applications for Windows. Our programs are known for their high quality, have been thought out well and are user-friendly. "
The software uses EZTwain for scanning in the version 3.0 http://www.eztwain.com/eztwain3.htm and the djvu software from 2013.
Upon start a resizable interface opens to full page, it checks for updates automatically, in the settings you define the scanner, the resolution and the interface language. You can choose between English and Spanish.
With every scanner comes the scanning software - maybe, if you buy second hand, then you missed it.
This software uses a general twain from EZTwain (see above).
It scans and converts the scanned image to some formats like DJVU or Word. But it does NOT convert to word, it is an image in a Word document, because of the missing OCR part.
After scanning, you have some editing features, page turning, cropping, changing contrast.
Nothing, what your scanner software cannot do - okay, one feature maybe, the page splitting, when scanning books with left or right page.
Test it maybe it is useful for you.
Uninstalled via reboot.
And a tip, for automatic cropping of scanned PDF files, I use Briss. http://sourceforge.net/projects/briss/
Still in a beta state (since years), but for me the best available tool.

As usual with this design the working space is not very important. On my not-that-big-but-not-that-small 1440x900 screen the working height is 734 pixels. The ribbon blindly copied from MS cannot be reduced ---what a shame. I don't see why a ribbon is better than a menu + toolbar. Is it nicer, though? Maybe, but losing functionality for aesthetics is a wrong move. Is it better? No, because yo have to click more than with a standard toolbar which takes much less screen space.
Then, once registered, the software should not show "Activate" with empty fields. Anyway, information is in HKCU/Software/ScanPDF (making this GOTD a half-portable application).
For my little test, I took a white page on which I've written with a pencil and selected WIA-xxxx as twain source.
1. The first time I tried to save the scan as an image to a folder of my choice, there was nothing in it. That was a first! It works only if you do not uncheck "Create the subfolder". Dumb. When I saved as PDF and Djvu, file was where I asked. BTW, Irfanview has more options for PDF (but cannot save as Djvu).
2. The output quality is less good than the scan made with Irfanview (which is BTW the only scan tool I use), with the same resolution (300 dpi).
3. Saving. ScanPapyrus PDF is 1.3 only (no choice) and has a bigger size (383 vs 333 kb). For JPG, with same 85% compression rate, Irfanview is much bigger (440 vs 386) but it might be because it has more "ink".
4. Editing/Image contrast: useless because it takes into account the background: if the background is white, it will become grey, which is not what I expect from a dedicated scanning software. So, it is not better than Irfanview, which is better because there are much more options to work on the image.
5. (Very) bad: does not remember the last folder used and no option to set a specific folder. I'm tired of software that know only "My *** beeeep *** Documents". Just for that (and the saving thing), I think the version number should be at most 0.1xxx.
6. Good: merging scans into a document is easy. If you need this, as well as scanning books (I don't scan books, so don't know how it works), and are too lazy to merge yourself the pages, fine. But you'll need another software anyway if you want to merge other things into your main document.
In short: nothing outstandng, wrong UI, bad usability and limited functionalities/options. IMO, not worth keeping and certainly not worth the price.

Very useful for scanning entire documents and saving as one PDF file.
The only caveat is that one cannot stop and continue scanning later the same document, so a product for merging PDFs is required.

office worker: That has nothing to do with what I said.
One cannot stop scanning, close ScanPapyrus, then come back later and continue with the same document.

Win 7 x 64. Brother 152W scanner.
1) First off, I don't like the fact that the "Buy Now" and "Activate" buttons still appear under the information tab. (Yes, I restarted the program, was even forced to twice as the program ceased to function and closed).
2) As the preview pages on the right of the screen are increased in size, they start to disappear off screen with no obvious way of dragging them back in full view, very shabby.
3) When scanning pages of a book, "Reduce Noise" does not work on Pre-Scan.
4) Does not remember folder to save scans to.
5) And finally, I can no way of "cleaning the background" as stated above.
For version 15 I would have expected the program to work as stated. I'll stick with Scanitto & VueScan.
