NeatReceipts is a mobile scanner and digital filing system to help you tame that paper monster in your life.

NeatReceipts and the NeatDesk are smart scanning solution that does more than just scan your documents. NeatReceipts transforms your digital documents into and organized and easily manageable file system. If you’re covered in mounds of paper that you just can’t part with  The Neat Company may just be your digital savior.

The primary draw of NeatReceipts and NeatDesk is the intuitive text reading and filing soft. Scanning a document to PDF is nothing new or exciting, but having software automatically pull out the information from your contacts, receipts, or documents to help you easily organize and file your digital life is certainly a refreshing change.

Afer using NeatReceipts to help import the many business cards that I received at Blog World Expo, I have a greater appreciation for the ORC technology that the software boasts. I’ve attempted to use digital scanning and file management systems in the past, but they just ended up take much more time and effort than they were worth. I had to do everything manually and it was really just a huge pain. With the NeatReceipts everything is much more automated. There are times when it does not read things accurately, and you do have to help it along, but it’s a dream compared to the manual filing I have done before.

I am also really excited about the ability to create expense reports and records for taxes. While I cannot say I am excited a my taxes, I can say that with the NeatReceipts I feel the burden is less heavy with the ability to print out nicely formatted and organized reports. Every blogger needs the ability to organize their tax write-offs for our businesses. Apple addicts will rejoice because you can get the accompanying Neat software for PC or Mac.
