If you find it hard to keep up with the paper overload even with a streamlined filing system, you might want to consider filing your paper docs electronically.  Of course it’s easy to scan and and then save them, but if you really want to use a tool that will help you when it comes to your productivity, then consider Neat Desk.

Neat Desk is a high-speed, duplex desktop scanner and digital filing system. It allows you to scan receipts, business cards and documents as the software identifies, extracts and organizes key information that helps when it comes to retrieving your information.

Neat uses Intelligent Text Recognition technology to read and understand key information, then automatically organizes what it sees. Very cool, huh?!  The resulting digital files are useful and usable, not just easy to find and access.  They’re also easy to share.

You can scan in your receipts, business cards, or documents pretty quickly–24 pages per minute and you can scan up to 50 pages at once – single or double sided, color or B&W, single or multi-page. You pick.  Your receipts become digital records with vendors and amounts, business cards become digital contacts, and documents become fully keyword searchable.

With this great tool, you end up with information you can not only find, but that you can use.  Once you’ve scanned your documents, you can create tax or expense reports from your receipt data, or export to MS Excel, Quicken, or even TurboTax. You can also Sync your contacts with Outlook or Address Book. Find what you need with a keyword, and organize it however you like.
