Its unique paper input tray allows you to insert up to 10 receipts, 10 business cards and 10 full-size documents, and scan them all in a single batch.

NeatWorks for Mac software
Once your paper is digitized, NeatWorks for Mac uses "Intelligent Text Recognition" technology to extract key data from your documents and populate key fields automatically in this robust digital filing system.

NeatWorks software uses OCR and patented parsing technology to identify and save key information. On receipts, it looks for the date, vendor, amount and sales tax. On business cards, it collects all of the contact information. And on documents, it saves the printed text in searchable PDF format.

Ratings & Reviews
Don't bother with this one
I was really looking forward to this product, and then I got it...
The software is way behind the windows version, one side of the duplex scanning is 50% quality of the other, post-processing of the image is not acceptable (grainy, no anti-aliasing), and the software is deadly slow. …

This is a terrible product regarding hardware and also a horrible piece of accompanying software. The scanner had to be replaced u nder warranty in less than 6 months because it inexplicably snatched up to 25 pages of paper at a time when scanning.The software constantly crashes for no explicable reason. This same thing has happened though several revisions of their software. Their only offered solution is to create new libraries and start over! This is of course entirely unacceptable because they never update the software to correct the problem.
Product support never responds appropriately and never explains why the software crashes. Moreover, the company has now discontinued phone support completely and the only way to communicate with them is through e-mail that is also terrible as far as quick, responsive problem resolution.
Do not buy this scanner or software if you expect good customer service, reliability or functionality. …

Neat Concept - Poor Execution
Using this in the UK, received it yesterday.
The scanner works quite well, but the scanner guide is poor, on large documents wit h multiple pages, if one additional page fails it rejects the whole scan.
The Neat software hangs regularly and you have to turn the scanner off and restart the software. On the 200 documents I've scanned with about 2 - 3 hours of work, I've had to 'Force Quit' the software around 5 times.
The metadata that it reads from the document doesn't seem to populate the fields well, I have to type in lots of additional data about the document, its a pity it doesn't do this for you. , The tool is configured for the US market, it hasn't read a date properly for the UK yet, I've tried using the preferences to change the date format. Will have to keep experimenting. I like the search capability so the OCR seems pretty capable. …

Does what I needed
I was very apprehensive about purchasing the product but I did it anyway. The software and scanner were easily setup in a matter o f minutes. Started scanning immediately. My receipts were pretty battered but as long as the leading edge was fairly straight I had no problems. I've scanned hundreds of receipts to date without issue. The software does a pretty good job at reading the various documents. Reliability seems to vary with the condition of the receipt. I will not be using the cloud because it's too expensive for what I need. Backups were a concern but there appears to be no issue as long as the scanning software is closed BEFORE you make a copy of the library for storage on my NAS for safekeeping. …

According to the "Neat" site, it can scan both sides in one pass and if you watch the video, it see ms to scan "pretty fast" although the real scanning speed always depends, on all scanners, about the amount and complexitiy of data on your page. Multi-tone photos will scan a lot slower than straight text documents …
