Earlier this week we announced a partnership with Neat that will allow users to scan documents directly to SkyDrive from their NeatConnect scanner. Weâ€™re really excited to have partnered with Neat to offer this exciting integration between hardware and the cloud.
SkyDrive lets you always have your files with you â€“ and weâ€™re continuing to push the boundaries of what your files encompass and how they get into the cloud. For copies of physical documents, SkyDrive already offers the opportunity for customers to manually upload scanned images into the cloud, or for customersâ€™ pictures of a document to be auto uploaded from Windows Phone to their SkyDrive. Neat marks a logical and significant step forward on this journey by allowing users to upload a full fidelity copy of a document into the cloud with a single touch.
Weâ€™re thrilled to be partnering with Neat, the first company to debut a wireless scanner that includes direct scan-to-cloud functionality using a touchscreen interface, to help customers better manage their physical and digital files. Itâ€™s also an exciting opportunity for our customers to leverage Neatâ€™s cloud, mobile and desktop solutions to simplify tasks such as the creation of expense and tax reports. We look forward to continuing to deliver more ways to always have your files with you.
