The Best of the New
Neat Receipts, a young company out of Philadelphia, has sold more than 125,000 units of its Neat Receipts Scanner, a digital organizer for tax records, recipes, business documents and many others for the home and small-business markets, through retailers such as Staples, Amazon.com, Best Buy, OfficeMax, J&R, Fry’s and Costco.com. It was also just named a Rising Star Company in the Deloitte Fast 50, the fourth fastest growing company in the Philadelphia 100, and the Best Small Company to Work For by Philadelphia magazine. The company is constantly updating its hardware and software line and is always looking to partner with new retailers.
“We support our retailers,” said Rafi Spero, founder of the company, adding that the dealer program includes co-op funds, MDF and joint marketing campaigns; and that product margins are about 20 points. “We’re very active with the retailers. We realize that if we help them, they’ll help us.”
Neat Receipts 3.0 (MSRP $229.95), the latest iteration of its product, was expected to hit the streets late last month. New features include scan to PDF, which converts paper documents; smart sorting, which scans and processes multiple documents and then automatically organizes them by their proper category; keyword search for faster and more accurate search functionality; and convert to text, which helps make documents easier to edit.
