Thanksgiving is right around the corner meaning only one thing — so are the craziest shopping days of the year, Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
Neat’s digital filing system is the most comprehensive way to organize personal and small business information. And in today’s on-the-go world that includes having that information at your fingertips through your favorite mobile devices.
With smartphone users checking their phone more than 150 times a day and never being more than three feet from it, comes a certain expectation that these devices can do just about anything.
Neat’s mobile apps for smartphones and tablets give users braving the Black Friday crowds or browsing holiday gifts from their favorite coffee shop the ability to capture, organize and access coupons, and budgets as well as share important gift list information with members of the family.
Neat allows users to capture, access and run up-to-date spending reports on all their holiday gift receipts whether they started as a piece of paper from a store or as a digital receipt emailed after shopping online. Neat can also help manage receipts for the pesky but inevitable returns and exchanges after all the presents have been opened.
Setting up a holiday folder in your Neat digital filing system can help you stay organized and on budget during this hectic holiday shopping season. Try it out.
Until next time…keep it Neat!

Earlier this week we announced a partnership with Neat that will allow users to scan documents directly to SkyDrive from their NeatConnect scanner. We’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 – and we’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 customers’ 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.
We’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. It’s also an exciting opportunity for our customers to leverage Neat’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.
