NeatDesk also shares one complication with NeatReceipts. The Neat Company uses the same name for all versions of NeatDesk, whether it upgrades the scanner, the software, or both. The version I reviewed included the most recent hardware and software:...

Scans and manages receipts, business cards, and documents. Scans to searchable PDFs. 50-page automatic document feeder

Included program is designed well but is highly limited

NeatDesk does a great job with receipts and business cards, but to take full advantage of the scanner itself, you'll have to buy additional software.

This scanner can import documents into applications such as QuickBooks

Okay scanner


materials used seems kind of cheap and flimsy confusing set up ended up returning the item tons of other scanners out there for better price

The scanner is a good piece of hardware. Unfortunately, the bundled software is junk. While the UI might look modern, the underlying software is old, slow, buggy, and way behind the times. It doesn't support network drives at all nor does it fully...

Scanning is fast

Bundled software

Its small, fast, organized

If you aren't using the internal organizer then the price is high

Useful when it works


Now that I have a working unit I think it's a decent product that streamlines my bookkeeping and gives me easy digital storage of receipts. I haven't used it to interface with Quickbooks yet, but it looks like it will be pretty easy. I did have a...

Makes bookkeeping easier and more precise

Getting a human customer service rep took me over an hour waiting in an online queue

Look for an alternative


You have a great high speed scanner device that does you no good because the software is seriously flawed. I have been using my machine for 6 months and am fed up with it. Neat Desk has so many background functions running to try to prevent you from...

Scanner is High Speed

Software is very slow and unreliable

Great all in one product


This is a good scanner to computer product. It's easy to set up and use. Once you scan, it's a little slow producing it in the program but still faster than doing it all by hand!About me... small business owner

Easy set up

optimization is slow
