Lelah Baker-Rabe, a Los Angeles based professional organizer and the blogger behind the “helping you organize” blog, has recently written about the NeatDesk scanner from The Neat Company that she won at the 2011 Los Angeles Organizing Awards. The first thing you notice about the NeatDesk scanner is that it takes up less room than a flatbed scanner. Moreover, Lelah pointed out that the scanner can take up to 15 normal sheets of paper, 15 receipts and 15 business cards all at once plus users can also remove the receipt/business cards tray and the scanner will then take up to 50 sheets of paper. And once you are done scanning, the software will archive everything scanned and make the information fully searchable and retrievable through a simple file structure.
However, what Lelah liked best about the system is that everything is clean, fast and the system will auto-populate data fields very well plus users can set it up exactly how they want to use it. Specifically, the system’s software will decide what type of item is being scanned and how to populate each data box that is associated with a particular item. For example: A business card’s mobile number will be placed in a mobile number slot and then users can update their address books.
Lelah concluded her post by saying that the NeatDesk scanner is so useful for helping her stay organized that she may soon replace her flatbed scanner with it.
