Neat Receipts Announces Neat Receipts for Mac

Advance Release Version Brings Award-Winning Scanner's Receipt and Document Organization Tools to Mac Users

PHILADELPHIA, PA--(Marketwire - May 19, 2008) -


NEAT Receipts, a Philadelphia-based company committed to developing user-friendly scanning solutions, today announced an Advance Release (version 1.0) of a completely new scanner and software solution, its first product specifically designed for the Mac platform. It is also the first product developed using NEAT Receipts' proprietary new hardware design.

The Advance Release product offers individuals and small businesses the ability to scan and manage receipts and documents using Mac OSX. NEAT Receipts for Mac was developed in the Apple programming environment so it provides an easy-to-use interface, with a look and feel that Mac users are already familiar with such as drag-and-drop functionality, image flow and other views, and the ability to import e-receipts by printing to NeatReceipts PDF files.

The Advance Release does not yet include the full feature set of the most recent PC version (NEAT Receipts version 3). NEAT Receipts for Mac version 2, which will be available in early 2009, will include additional features that make the Mac version more analogous to the NEAT Receipts (Windows) feature set.

All customers who purchase the Advance Release will receive a free upgrade to version 2 once it is available.
