Remember when everyone talked about how we would soon be a paperless society? Now it seems like we use paper more than ever. Let’s face it – we need and we use paper. But Paperless 2 is one of those incredibly useful applications that will help you manage all your paper and digital documents and at the same time positively affect the environment.

Don't dread tax time. No more bringing a shoebox full of receipts to your accountant. According to ruling Rev. Proc. 97-22 from the IRS, a digital document is acceptable. With Paperless 2 you can create a Smart Collection and keep all your documents neat and tidy and in one place. Additionally, once you store your receipts in Paperless 2, you can select the receipts to email, print, or export to PDF, or even show as a chart.

Paperless 2 has the ability to keep up and maintain the task of not only reducing your need for paper but managing the paper you use. Simply scan your receipts, bills, statements, warranty cards, business cards – any paper document and the OCR function of Paperless 2 recognizes the data and adds it to the Details Window. The built-in search functionality even lets you find and organize receipts and documents into Smart Collections. Already have your documents as PDFs or other file formats? No problem. Simply drag and drop them into Paperless 2. By taking your paper receipts, product manuals and other documents and creating an electronic record you’ve already reduced your need for paper.

Need even more convincing? Here's a small sampling of why to use Paperless:

-Prepare expense reports
Once you store your receipts in Paperless, you can select the receipts to email, print, or export to PDF.

-Painlessly handle taxes
In most cases, the IRS (or other tax authority) may accept electronic copies of your receipts. Paperless makes gathering information for taxes a snap!

-Manage flexible spending
Put items into a category called Medical or Flexible Spending, then create a smart collection for the time period.

-Store owners manuals
Simply add your owners manuals to a Paperless library and they're accessible with a few quick keystrokes.

-Acess legal documents
Many lawyers are moving from the massive amounts of paper they generate to electronic storage. Paperless is the perfect solution.

-Be ready in case of disaster
Paperwork in Paperless before a disaster will make recovery easier.

In a nutshell, Paperless helps you help the world be a greener place to live.

Customer Reviews



I’ve used this app for about a year now and for a while I thought I was doing something wrong, I contacted the developers who in turn argued with me about what I was doing and it was wrong and eventually I think they took the huff. I asked for incremental backups but “NO” it apparently can’t be done and I was nitpicking. The scanner wouldn’t work with the app unless it was released from twain but the developers trashed me for using twain. It was me who discovered the bug with using it.

The app, even today, keeps crashing and it was suggested the files I was using were corrupted, but now we’re into the new year and as I was saving the very first file, the app crashed. I’ve decided to give this app the poorest rating because every time it crashes a report is sent to Apple and the developers - who have NOT RESOLVED the issues.

After I wrote this I found there is an update that resolves “bugs” so I downloaded the update and Immediately on use it crashed ‘YET AGAIN'

No multi-currency support


Currencies are determined by the System settings. No real multi-currency support. This is a big disadvantage for anyone doing work or travelling in Europe (Euros, GBP, Swiss Francs, etc). Their currency "workarounds" on their web site only address a "one currency or nothing" approach and there is nothing in their forum answers that suggest that they would tackle this.

Otherwise it is an easy to use program, and works well with SnapScan. But because of the above it is not really that usable at the moment.



As a long term user of PaperPort on the PC, I recently made the move to MAC my priority was to find a document file and retrevial App, I found Paperless and it seemed to do most of what I needed it to do. Without doubt the best decision ever, It's everything it claims to be and more, well worth the investment.
