Smart Organizing at NAPO 2013

April 26th, 2013

Last week my team and I boarded a plane and traveled down to New Orleans to attend the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO) Annual Conference and Organizing Expo. Attending the NAPO Expo is a natural fit for Neat because we, like the many professional organizers in attendance, want to help people simplify their lives so they can be more organized and productive.

Besides the fact that we got to spend some quality time in New Orleans, this year’s Expo was particularly exciting. We hosted a special speaking session devoted to Digital Filing Systems, and NeatDesk was selected as NAPO’s Best Solution for Organizing Information at Work.

During our Smart Organizing session, which we hosted with Neat Fleeters Joshua Zerkel and Bonnie Dewkett, the pesky Paper Monster made an appearance!  He stirred up quite the response from the professional organizers in attendance, and a local Philly-area organizer, Darla DeMorrow, was able to catch him on film. Check him out here.

We had a great time at the NAPO Expo and loved getting to spend time talking with all of the professional organizers. My bags are already packed for next year’s conference and expo in Arizona!


Until Next Time…Keep it Neat!



New and Unique Ways to Get Neat

February 28th, 2013

If you’ve been reading our blog, you’re probably familiar with our popular Digital Filing System solutions NeatDesk, NeatReceipts, NeatCloud and NeatMobile. These solutions have made it possible for so many people to simplify and organize their lives so that they have more time to do what matters most to them. But do you really know everything that you can do with Neat?

We’ve been asking our customers for some of the unique ways they’ve been using Neat, and we were surprised with the wide array of responses we received. Below we included four customers whose use of Neat truly inspired us to keep providing solutions that simplify life.

  • Karen scans sewing patterns into Neat so that they’re easy to find, back-up and share no matter where she’s located. Scanning and exporting patterns to PDF makes reprinting a snap and eliminates the need to buy new patterns.
  • Paul tracks paper sales receipts from his craft gallery, which supports local artists. By scanning the receipts into Neat he can assign each to a specific vendor, track their sales volume and request more products from top local crafters.
  • Barbara digitizes all of her recipe files to make finding recipes from her 2000+ collection quick and easy. She started by scanning all of her handwritten family favorites to preserve her Grandma’s handwriting and now clips her favorites directly from online.
  • Andrea goes eco-friendly by scanning all of her important paper documents from invoices to magazine articles and then shreds them to use as compost in her garden.

Are you using Neat in a unique way? If so, we’d love to hear all about how you’ve been using Neat, just Tweet us @neatcompany using #NeatIsUnique in your response.


Until next time… Keep it Neat!


Coming Soon: NeatDesk for Mac!

March 4th, 2009

At the 2009 Macworld conference this past January, we unveiled NeatWorks for Mac 2.0, the latest version of our scanning and digital filing software developed for the Mac OS. Current users, new customers and the media were all excited about the new features and functionality – like support for business cards (and Address Book integration), the ability to export to Quicken, and its compatibility with several 3rd party scanners.

Yet despite all the accolades and congratulations, we kept hearing one question: “Does this version work with your lightning-fast, stylish, and award-winning desktop scanner?” (OK, perhaps I am paraphrasing a bit but you get the idea.)

And while we couldn’t make any promises at the time, we are very excited to let you know that YES, NeatDesk for Mac will be available soon! It will use the same great NeatWorks software, but will come with the NeatDesk ADF (automatic document feeder) scanner. The unique design of the ADF scanner allows for fast batch scanning of multiple paper types – even two-sided documents! (Learn more about the ADF scanner.)

We don’t have an exact release date yet, but you can sign up here to be alerted as soon as it’s available.
