NeatReceipts Scanalizer Professional 2.5 review: NeatReceipts Scanalizer Professional 2.5


NeatReceipts NeatReceipts is a dainty sheet-fed scanner and software combo that scans your receipts, interprets the text, and enters the information into a database. It also allows you to export the data to Excel, various financial software packages,...

Simple, intuitive software interface; can export files to Excel, Quicken, Acrobat, and more; helpful, well-written documentation and user tutorials.

Software doesn't recognize handwritten or faded receipts; more expensive than a basic flatbed scanner; shuns Mac users.

This compact, intelligently designed sheet-fed scanner almost makes it a pleasure to generate expense reports and calculate itemized income tax deductions.

HORRIBLE waste of time and money


I've been told for months that NeatReceipts update ($20 cost to existing customers for version 3.0) would have better exporting to Quicken. Specifically I'm disappointed that MEMO data (you know - that line that has been on checks for 100 years now)...

good idea

VERY SLOW, glitchy, poor OCR, poor export, costly updates, fail to fix bugs, poor upgrades

Neat Receipts SCANALIZER


I first saw the Neat Receipts Scanalizer hardware and software product at the Seattle airport being demonstrated by a sales rep. It looked real easy to use. I saw a variety of receipts and full-size pages being scanned in and filed automatically into...

I like having the ability to split receipt expenses among several categories

I would like to have more flexibilty with the build-in reports

Great Idea, doesn't really work for me.


As a hopeless receipt piler, I am always screwed at tax time, and berated and charged heavily by my attorney. I have tried programs like PaperPort and OmniPage in the past, but they never did a good job of pulling information off the documents- and...

Good Sorting & Extraction

Very slow boot-up and execution

More trouble than its worth


The product looks well made, but the software is very lacking. It can't scan a whole sheet to copy and keep it straight, there is no real image adjustment for scanned documents, although there is some for receipts. It is slower than a Prius in the fast...

It's lightweight and neat looking and doesn't require a separate power supply

Doesn't live up to its promise

Major Disappointment


I first purchased the Neat Receipt Scanner when I first started my business and also was keeping track of medical receipts for my mother for whom I'd taken over financial responsibilities.

It's small and the software works with outlook

The support for Vista is silly

Made in China Says All


Well, I certainly wish I could write a nice review for the Neat Receipts scanner, but I can't.
