You don’t need it

I have been using neat for about 10 year. It always had a very poor 3d party customer support, but I was able to manage our relationship somehow. My major issue was that while I used the application I accumulated too much tax related documents. With exclusive cloud application there is no way to keep the organized back up on your hard drive. Neat says that all the documents remain on your hard drive, but they cheat. The documents and recipes are not organized without the software. Therefore if you start using neat cloud you become their slave. This is the reason that I have decided to quite Neat after 10 years of relationship. Also, just couldn’t tolerate their poor 3d party customer support any more. They have been trying to fix my issue with sync for 3!!!! Days!!! I mean I couldn’t work on my computer for 3!!! Days!!! Watching them fixing the issue. And suddenly the person working on the issue could be pulled way for several hours. No! don’t need this soft and this service !!! The idea was great however

Not helpful

I was really hoping to be able to use my iPad exclusively with Neat. It works pretty well for most things - I have no problem changing the type of item (receipt, doc, etc). However, the "email your item" doesn't work -- the emails are never received - even 24 hours later. The export feature absolutely SHOULD allow you to upload it to the iCloud Drive rather than just “photos” - many of my documents can be saved as a PDF on my iPad but I can’t import it into the Neat App! The other thing that is not an option is combining items. You can't do that in the app. Fix these 3 things and I will give it 5 stars!

Poor Mobile App

The mobile app will not always remain synced with the "cloud". The mobile app collects garbage versions of receipts as you move them on the cloud side. End up having to periodically delete the app and reinstall in order to clean up the local mobile contents. Overall my experience with neat is no longer positive. The cloud software in its current version is not nearly as functional as the original desktop offering. Now that they no longer make dedicated scanners and force you to pay an annual fee to access your data with no method to export easily. You are locked into the relationship to access you paperless records.
