NeatDesk Review


UPDATE: CLOSED…and the winner is:

Valinda who said:  I am already an email subscriber! Thank you for doing all the work for me and sharing your fabulous finds!! 

I feel like organization is something that eludes me, but I do have to say … I am getting closer and closer to at least feeling like I am managing the chaos. (and trying to accept the parts of the chaos that I can’t quite tackle…) So,I have to brag a bit and tell you that my new NeatDesk has me feeling like some kind of Organizational superhero… for real. This machine is so neat. First of all … it is super fasssst. (superhero-ish quality #1) Secondly … it is sleek and simple and looks oh-so-good on my almost (almost!) organized desk. And third (and most important) it is EASY to use. As in SUPER easy to use.

About Neat Desk: NeatDesk is a high-speed desktop scanner and digital filing system that will quickly turn all the paper on your desk into organized, digital files. More than just a great scanner, NeatDesk also includes patented NeatWorks® software to identify and extract key information from your paper files, then automatically organizes it in the easy to use database.

All-in-one scanning. NeatDesk features our award-winning ADF (Automatic Document Feeder) scanner. The patented paper input tray lets you scan different kinds of paper – from the smallest taxi receipt to 2-sided legal documents – all in a single pass. Or insert up to 50 pages at once for lightning-fast batch scanning. (See scanner specifications for more information.)

Powered by NeatWorks® software. NeatWorks uses patented “Intelligent Text Recognition” technology to identify and capture key information from scanned documents, then populates that data automatically in the robust digital filing system. Create exports for tax time and year-round financial management, or export data to applications like QuickBooks®,TurboTax®, and Outlook®. All scanned documents are completely keyword searchable, so you’ll find your files in just a few seconds – instead of a few hours.”

What do I think? I think … “I’m in love!” … really, this is the neatest thing. It was easy to set up (within minutes) and very easy to start using. It scans everything from business cards to receipts, bills, documents … and get this, it can scan double sided! It also sorts, organizes… and get this: it can even create expense reports and manage business and personal expenses. The software also allows users to keep track of expenses for tax time (records accepted by the IRS) and easily export data to Excel®, Quicken®, QuickBooks®, TurboTax®. Honestly… my accountant is going to be so impressed with me this year, as this is actually making record keeping kind of fun!

What I also love is that both my husband and I can use this, without conflict … it stores and sorts and even creates spreadsheets for data. And I love LOVE the search option… everything can be found quickly by keyword if for some reason you can’t find it. Since we each run our own businesses, this is a huge plus for us … and I am just a bit excited to see how much easier our tax “organization” day goes this year. (you know…the actually DAY that it takes to just get together the tax information … before you can actually do the taxes, lol)
