Neatdesk for the Mac offers a lot of promise. The real question right now is whether you are prepared to spend the time to overcome the limitations. The setup is a breeze. The scanning part of the operation is very fast. There is a bit of a delay as the OCR part of the software analyses the scanned material, but you can work with the parts that have been analyzed if you have several "pages" being scanned at one time. The software is fairly intuitive at both identifying whether something is a receipt, a contact, or a document as well as pulling information off the receipt/business card/document to populate the data fields. You can create subfolders to sort your results. There is some ability to add fields for the data captured (i.e. for meal receipts you can create a field for tips (not in the default)) but the fields can't be moved around so the added field is at the bottom and you have to scroll past many fields you don't need.

The real issue is the OCR accuracy and the need to correct the classification of documents (because the default fields are different for different types of documents). You can't just scan and forget. It simply isn't that accurate. On almost every scan you will need to edit the data for vendor, contact, date, or type of document. It's great that it captures what it does. But there is a time commitment that the hype minimizes.

The other thing is the Neatdesk vs. the Fujitsu Snapscan. The Neatdesk is clearly better if your primary object is to capture documents for archiving like receipts where you don't need to manipulate the data or retrieve details in the scanned material. The Neatworks software is just much better organized for that. On the other hand it is nearly worthless if you are trying to scan documents that you later want to edit and use such as letters, spreadsheets, etc. The Fujitsu Snapscan is much more useful for the comprehensive scan jobs (although the OCR capability remains an issue - you will still have to proofread and edit each document if you are looking for 100% accuracy - 95% accuracy can be a problem in terms of missing data in broad searches and of course is completely unacceptable in any serious communication documents).

I use this product ever day. Cons: it has trouble detecting only one or two pieces of paper, especially if it's a light weight receipt. It does NOT export to Quick books which is a major draw back. Unless receipts are in pristine condition, it will not automatically read all the fields and you have to manually enter them. It's better than using a flatbed scanner by far, but it's not as great as their website claims. (of course) I would recommend to fried with clear cavets.

        This scanner works excellent however, during installation/registration I was offered the iCloud setup and as much as I tried to get around it, since I didn't want the feature, the second I click next, the system signed my up for their iCloud. Uffa! So now I'm guessing that I would have to wait for 30- days trial to run out so I can finally register this product with the serial number/product key it came with.

        When you sign up for iCloud during the initial installation you're never asked to use the product key.

              Comments about Neat Company NeatDesk Scanner for Mac:

              Besides major damage to the interior of our home and outside property, Hurricane Sandy destroyed all our documents, receipts, etc. I wanted to save all new and replaceable documents in my computer. In the past, I tried scanning documents on my multi-purpose printer, saving the image to a flash drive, then plugging the flash drive into my computer, then naming the file to save in a specific dedicated folder. A real long process. The Neat Desk made it simple. Its far from perfect, such as misreading/analyzing some scanned documents. But it does make this task easier. I expect future software ugrades will improve its analyzing ability. I would buy it agan despite its high cost. The savings in time are worth it to me. The Staples store I bought the Neat Desk from did not have it on display so I had to ask for it. Specify Mac or pc version when buying.

                    Neat is definitely software focused. I use it mainly for scanning reciepts for taxes, etc. It is good in that it can learn many receipts and enter the name automatically once learned. It pulls the total and the reciept text rather accurately, but definitely review after scanning. I had trouble getting some reciepts to scan smoothly although the software can straighten images if the scan is crooked. Full pages scanned mostly without issue, and rather quickly. Text is searchable. I also use their cloud service to have scanned items available anywhere. It can also generate reports and save as PDF, email, etc.Overall I'm quite happy with the the scanner and software. (A new WIFI scanner is now available)

                      This is a great scanner and I am just starting to use it. However, read everything you can and watch all the videos. With the Mac version, you may have trouble with Libraries. Once created, they can not be deleted and they will not show up in the main screen. Better to have the one library and create under it. So far I have only used it for recipes. After a trip to California, I will start scanning receipts. At first the color was really dark, but I changed the settings and now it is fine. I like that it will self adjust because some of the papers will go through the scanner at an angle and then it automatically will straighten the image on the computer.
