Neatdesk High-Speed Document Scanner: for the Oc in You

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  June 5, 2009

The Neatdesk scanner from The Neat Company is touted as a digital filing cabinet. Thanks to its unique three-slot tray, Neatdesk can “scan up to 10 receipts, biz cards and standard-size documents in a single batch.” And if you have documents printed in A4-sized paper, just remove the tray and Neatdesk can handle up to 50 of them at once. It has a maximum resolution of 600 dpi.


But Neatdesk’s doesn’t stop there; the included NeatWorks software “identifies and extracts the important information and automatically organizes it for you.” From what I can tell, it can recognize and automatically classify your scanned documents.


It’s very helpful not only for organizing and archiving, but for accounting as well, because the software recognizes US and Canadian business cards, as well as receipts and other records accepted by the IRS. The Neat Company claims that NeatWorks can export data to Outlook, Excel, Quicken and TurboTax too.

You can order a Neatdesk over on Amazon for about $399 (USD). A Mac-compatible version is also available.
