Review: Neat Desk

I received the following item(s) for in exchange for a fair and honest review. Although I received the item for review, the opinions stated are 100% my own.


About The Neat Company:

The Neat Company (formerly NeatReceipts) was born from a single idea: that there’s a better way to deal with receipts for expense reports.  Over time, the idea has grown and changed into something much more powerful: a way to transform and manage any kind of paper, with live data you can use.

Since 2002, NeatReceipts has been synonymous with digitizing and organizing receipts.  And over the past five years, we’ve listened to what our customers want and spent a lot of time developing new capabilities and new ways of doing things.  We’ve added business card scanning, document scanning, integrated our scanning technology into other applications and even developed software for the Mac platform built from the ground up.  We have completely remade our product line, adding new hardware and new software built to deliver the more than just receipt scanning: we’re building an organized, digital life.  And with every scan, we transform static paper into actionable, usable information.

As of October 1, 2008, the company known as NeatReceipts became known as The Neat Company. 

The Neat Company is creating a new way for businesses and consumers at home to capture, store, and use the information they need. Our promise is simple: we want to help our customers organize their paper and simplify their lives.

My Review:

I am always losing important paper work. This scanner is just answer to my mounds of paper work. I can now keep all my documents, receipts, and business cards stored on my computer.

This scanner makes organizing important documents easier than a traditional scanner. I love that there is a slot for documents, receipts, and business cards. The software is easy to use and navigate. 

This scanner can be used on both a PC and Mac machine. You can also import the information into tax programs like Tubro Tax. That is very convenient.
