Getting started on the NeatConnect is pretty simple and those who prefer to use cloud services exclusively simply needs to plug the device into a power outlet and follow the setup instructions on the integrated touchscreen. Speaking of cloud services, the primary cloud service designed for the NeatConnect is NeatCloud, which is a cloud storage solution hosted by Neat.
As far as issues go with the scanner itself, I did run into a couple feeding and detection issues with some extra thin receipts as well as some business cards printed on plastic, but overall it wasn’t a huge problem for the majority of the documents, receipts, or business cards I tested.
Overall the NeatConnect Cloud Scanner along with the NeatCloud service is probably one of the easiest, most integrated solutions out there for those looking to finally take the first step into a paperless future.
I have written about, talked about, and established mail systems, file systems, and in and out box systems for just about every type of office and I will tell you without hesitation that the Neat Receipt scanner is my favorite solution for paper clutter!
In a nutshell, you scan documents, business cards, and receipts using your Neat Receipt scanner and it knows which of these 3 types of paper it is.

Amy I love this, I’m going to buy it I was waiting for mu husband to get it but I will! I keep hearing about this but I have visions in my head of all the previous products that have promised similar things.


Given the fact that I now have close to probably 1000 business cards, boxes of documents, and years of receipts that I most likely won’t ever be needing, I naturally accepted.
Up top there are three loading slots, each slot designed for a different function – documents, receipts, and [business] cards. Files scanned to alternative cloud services have the option of being scanned into various formats such as PDF, JPG, PNG, TIFF, etc.
Unfortunately, my own business card was one of the problem cards as the left side was slightly cut off when scanned, but overall it did fairly well as long as the cards are printed on a more standard cardstock. Of course, you could opt out of using NeatCloud’s services altogether and just use the Neat software utility along with other cloud services such as DropBox, Google Drive, Evernote, etc. Here you might find me talking about things that make our lives as moms and women better, including coffee, books, Apps, products, and people. If that’s not enough, you can also remove the piece that houses the three slots and simply use the guide to choose a perfect paper size. The NeatConnect also offers a SD card slot at the front of the device, which is useful for those who regularly carry around a SD card, but I think they should’ve probably swapped that out for a USB port instead since most people tend to carry around flash drives rather than SD cards. Even in our digital age, the volume of paper has not been reduced and it causes more clutter than anything else.


Neat has implemented a number of options which can be selected directly via the touchscreen as well such as the option for single or double sided scanning, scanning quality (up to 600DPI), color or B&W, which cloud service to scan to, etc. Scan quality defaults to 300DPI, which I think is perfectly fine for those scanning documents and such.
Like I mentioned earlier, NeatCloud is pretty much a cloud version of the Neat desktop software, so you’ll be able to individually review all your scans, input any missing information from those scans, and file them via the filing system.
While this pricepoint shouldn’t be a huge problem for business users who plan to scan regularly, $500 plus a monthly subscription for the typical home user who only scans a couple bills and receipts every month seems a bit excessive. Files can then be searched for, viewed, downloaded, or synced with the Neat desktop software making it probably the easiest digital cloud filing solution on the market. I think what Neat really needs to do is develop a free service tier for home users with limited scanning needs while also offering different paid service tiers for business users with heavy scanning needs. Business users also have the option of generating expense reports, tax reports, as well as spending reports, which makes things easy for when tax season rolls around.
