What if my 3rd party scanner is not Neat Certified?

Scanners connected to Neat that are not ‘certified’ by Neat engineers will have limited scanner setting abilities.

Non-Neat Certified scanner will NOT be able to change the following scan settings in the Neat software:

  • Single / Double sided
  • Separate / Combined scanning
  • B/W / Color scanning
  • Crop / Edit image before sending and processing
  • Rotate image before sending and processing
  • Zoom in / out before sending and processing

While you will not be able to change the above scan settings in the Neat software, you can adjust these settings by using the software the scanner came with to scan. Once the file is saved on your computer, you can import the file into Neat.
