The Neat Company

Neat®, a leader in Cloud-based Digital Filing Systems for the home and small business, transforms the way people work and live by offering solutions that change the way they deal with paper and digital information. Neat’s unique combination of cloud, mobile, desktop software, and hardware scanning solutions create a comprehensive Digital Filing System that helps simplify everyday tasks so our customers have more time to do what matters. Founded in 2002, Neat is an innovative and fast-growing technology company headquartered in the heart of Philadelphia. We manufacture and market a unique combination of software and hardware scanning solutions that use optical character recognition (OCR) and patented parsing technology to read and convert information on receipts, business cards, and documents and then store the information in a Digital Filing System. Neat transforms analog data into digital information, simplifying paper-intensive processes and enabling users to easily organize, store, find, secure, and use information. Our best-selling NeatDesk® product is a high-speed desktop scanner and Digital Filing System that quickly transforms all the paper on a person’s desk into organized digital files. NeatReceipts® has the same capabilities as the NeatDesk – it can scan business cards, receipts, documents, and more – in a size that is ideal for travel. Neat’s proprietary software features an intuitive design that makes it easy for users to identify, extract, organize, and store key information from their paper files. In 2012, Neat launched NeatCloud®, our subscription-based cloud service with a robust mobile app. Now our customers can add to – or access – their Neat accounts from anywhere, even using the cameras on their mobile devices to “scan” items on the go. Neat’s products, which are available for both PC and Mac users, are available directly from the Neat online store, at select retail stores, and through authorized resellers. Neat has been named to the Inc. 500 list three consecutive years, is a past winner of the Philly 100 and the Deloitte Fast 50, and has been recognized for product innovation by the Consumer Electronics Association, iF Design Awards, Red Dot Design Awards, and Spark! Awards. In 2012, Neat was named the Technology Company of the Year by the Philadelphia Alliance for Capital and Technology (PACT). We’ve been named the Best Small Company to work for by Philadelphia Magazine and the Start-up of the Year by the Eastern Technology Council, and we’ve been prominently featured in a variety of media outlets for designing and developing innovative products, including Fast Company, Macworld, Business Week, Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Oprah’s O Magazine, the Martha Stewart TV show, The View TV show, as well as countless blogs and web sites.
