    "Horrible product; absolutely no customer service!"

    July 03, 2012   |   By Emileah1

    Version: NeatWorks 3.5

    Pros

    I have receipts stored.

    Cons

    Crashes constantly. Despite doing the updates it constantly demands, it takes at least 1/2 an hour to load each time I use it. There is no live customer service. I called the 800 number and the man reluctantly told me he was "sales only". You have to email them, wait for them to answer and hope they can solve it that way. Naturally nothing they said helped... I wouldn't take this program if they were giving it away for free. I'm looking for another program now... I've backed all receipts to a pen drive because I don't trust this program at all. Don't waste your money!!!

    "No trial version"

    November 28, 2011   |   By kearney2

    Version: NeatWorks 3.5

    Pros

    Scansnap compatibility.

    Cons

    No free trial

    Summary

    While they offer a 30-day return policy, it does not apply to the downloaded versions of their software. I won't buy any program that doesn't offer a trial period with full functionality so I can verify for myself if the product lives up to the company's advertising.

    "Don't waste your money"

    April 16, 2011   |   By macbeth30308

    Version: NeatWorks 3.5

    Pros

    It was easy to install

    Cons

    It is not user friendly. It is not intuitive. The instruction guide is not clear.

    Summary

    I switched from the Windows version which was easy and worked beautifully to the Mac version because I bought a new Mac laptop. It is totally different with an awful interface and even worse instruction guide. Wow, what a disappointment!

    Updated on Apr 16, 2011

    and good luck creating a smart folder. Post a how-to please if you figure it out!

    "God awful!"

    April 11, 2011   |   By rgaufman

    Version: NeatWorks 3.5

    Pros

    Looks fantastic in reviews and promotional materials

    Cons

    1) Unstable, unstable, unstable - keeps crashing constantly, impossible to use.
    2) Very buggy, everything is jumpy, interface elements vanish, receipts disappear from under your cursor.
    3) Requires their branded hardware.

    Summary

    Great idea, fantastic promotional materials but it's been years and NeatCo still can't release a stable Mac version. The Windows version is good but the Mac one is incredibly buggy and unstable.

    Also, it doesn't help the Neat Receipt scanner broke after a year and their software will not work with anything else - avoid!

    "Getting there"

    March 24, 2011   |   By RayCon

    Version: NeatWorks 3.5

    Pros

    Print to NeatWorks using the PDF button in the print dialogue.
    Drag and drop info from the scanned image to the database fields (if it is not accomplished automatically).

    Cons

    Needs tags.
    No graphical reports.
    Creating smart folders is somewhat confusing and unintuitive. Also, the number of criteria used for creating them is limited.

    Summary

    Nice improvements with each update. I previously used Receipt Wallet (now called Paperless) v1.x, and there were frequent crashes. Also, I constantly needed to send files to the app twice, because it would never work the first time. NeatWorks has crashed on me only once, and the ability to drag data from the original to the database is a huge plus.

    "What a Colossal and Pathetic Waste of Time and Money!"

    February 16, 2011   |   By gary behr

    Version: NeatWorks 3.0.7.31

    Pros

    If you DON'T buy it, You Can Save a LOT of Time and Money!

    Cons

    It's about as intuitive as a rock! - Can't read a simple receipt! - NOT compatible with the current of Quicken/Mac! (they say no plans to fix) - Can't import from Excel! - Can't export to OCR to any text program! - Will NOT preserve custom settings!

    Summary

    ? First, the enclosed packaging Product Key didn't work!

    ? Their on-line system disabled my log-in account. In spite of notifying them of this, they did not help re-establish it, yet almost every support ticket I got, tells me I need to log into my account -WHICH I CAN'T DO!

    ? They keep referring me to a "Windows" possible solution, even though I kept stating to them I'm on a Mac!

    ? They do NOT have a manual or guide for their Mac software! (neither paper nor PDF) just their short sales video.

    ? Their "Neatworks for Mac Forum" (which is on their menu) is an unsupported 404 ERROR page!

    ? You can select & rearrange the columns displayed in their directory "Table", but they are NOT saved! - And they say there is there no way to preserve these settings!

    ? The NeatReceipts for Mac is NOT compatible for exporting to Quicken for Mac 2010/2011! They said they have NO plans for a compatible version!

    ? NeatReceipts will NOT import any existing Microsoft Excel spread sheets (i.e. with contact information)!

    ? If you OCR a document, NeatRecipts can NOT export the OCR text to a Word or any other text document!

    ? Every time a business card is scanned, it defaults to a "Receipt" format, requiring you to mouse around, re-designate and re-analyze every damn card into a business card format!

    ? NeatReceipts won't even recognize a basic receipt (sample available)

    ? It can take weeks for them to get back with any pertinent information!

    Other than that, someone might be able to use it! (If they had patience and money to waste!)

    "Very bad :("

    November 09, 2010   |   By rgaufman

    Version: NeatWorks 3.0.7.31

    Pros

    High promises

    Cons

    Software is unstable, very buggy and just not "Mac" software. Absolute pain to use. Also scanner is not great, receipts scanned at an angle, slow, just not great.

    Summary

    Looks fantastic on paper, however when you start using it, the software is a huge let down, when it's not crashing, it's painfully slow and nothing works like you'd expect.

    "Good Program/Commitment a Must"

    October 11, 2010   |   By geeekgrrrl

    Version: NeatWorks 3.0.7.31

    Pros

    Going Paperless has its advantages, and it doesn't come easily. After struggling a bit-can send receipts directly to their file with a full face receipt, ready for Profit and Loss, IRS, or whatever else comes at you.

    Cons

    Cons: Program does not recognize simple numbers and letters and doesn't drag and drop information, as promised.

    Summary

    Bottom Line- every transition takes time and commitment. This transition is sure to include long hours as filing system must be created and organized from scratch. The scanner is weak and doesn't recognize numbers and letters or drag and drop, as touted by company. Still- online receipts go directly to appropriate folders and paper pile is dwindling. Definitely gets easier after set up system for both documents and receipts.
