    "Works great (using v.1.2.1) - highly recommended"

    March 4, 2010  |   By fredfass

    Version: Paperless 1.2

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    Versiontracker at the time of my post has version 1.2 listed, but there's been a subsequent update to 1.2.1. (changes not listed anywhere, though). Mariner bought this software from the developer but it continues to be updated. I use a Scansnap S300M scanner with my Mac Pro, running OS X 10.6.2, and all works fine. I really like the organizing features of Paperless, especially the "Smart Collections" feature which is real easy to set-up and use to filter your docs or receipts as you wish. Neat Receipts also has a "Smart" collections feature but it's lame in comparison.

    Paperless is vastly better than the competition. To compare the 2 programs I had to buy Neat Receipts since they didn't offer a trial version (that's a red flag, folks). I tried it, didn't like it, asked for my money back, and the Neat Receipts never replied. They got my money and didn't care.

    Getting into the habit of scanning your papers frees you from "paper-pile clutter" and eliminates the frustration of digging through real-world files to find something you really need. Just be sure to at least apply a category to everything you scan to get the full benefit of Paperless.

    "Great software for keeping and tracking paperless bills"

    December 2, 2009  |   By pjdevitt

    Version: Paperless 1.1.1

    Pros

    You simply download your paperless ebills or statements in PDF format and import them into this program.. It stores them for you as long as you need to keep them. You can organize documents in files by company and year.

    Cons

    While you can encrypt the file it should be automatic. I store all my credit card and account statements and this includes account numbers etc.

    Summary

    This is one of my essential pieces of software. I would not want to be wthout it.

    "All sales people should buy this"

    Version: Paperless 1.0

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I?m loving Paperless ? I often use my personal credit card and cash for work expenses and have never done a great job keeping track of it all. Now it is all there in one place and I can easily add the client names and project numbers required to get reimbursed from my company.

    "too expensive, lack of editing features"

    May 30, 2009  |   By djjjk

    Version: Paperless 1.0

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    The idea behind this software is good but its way too expensive for the casual user - at which it seems to be aimed. My main bugbear though, is the lack of an editing function or at least the ability to be able to call up the scans directly in Photoshop. I managed to get it working with my Epson Perfection 3200 but the scans were either clipped or not legible. The coverflow function is a nice touch but the scans are not sharp enough and too small to make any sense. I managed to scan directly - much better control - in Photoshop and resave the better pdfs to the Receipt Library but the program doesn't seem to recognise them, even after quitting and restarting.

    I was also able to write much smaller pdf files in Photoshop, the Paperless files were way too big and not as good.

    I highlighted these concerns, in reply to the developers enquiry concerning my purchase (nice touch by the way) but haven't heard back? so what's the point of that really?

    I also use Mariner's MacJournal which I really like so this was a big disappointment. With Paperless, all I'm left with is a nice way to sort/arrange information that I've added by hand anyway - which kind of defeats the purpose of this - and a bunch of useless scans. It would be nice to see this "beta-esque" software working as promised but for the moment my recommendation is to wait till they update it and/or drop the price? if that ever happens!
