PC Magazine - NeatReceipts has hit on a great idea!
October 24th, 2005
"NeatReceipts has hit on a great idea: Turn your receipts into digital format, OCR them, create a text record for each, and use the records to print expense reports, and you'll no longer have to track the originals in all their assorted odd sizes."

"In our tests, NeatReceipts did a remarkably good job enhancing hard-to-read printed receipts to make them easily readable on-screen. OCR accuracy was limited, but given the faded condition of typical receipts, we were impressed that it worked at all. And the OCR technology yielded some of the most accurate results we've seen for scanning business cards."
