Tech & Your Biz: How a Laser Skin Center Got Its Paper Problem Under Control

The Columbia Laser Skin Center had a problem. It’s storage space was running out as they continued to accumulate tons of tons of paper each year, important documents ranging from patient records to medical journal clippings. Owner Erika Wilson faced a big decision. She could either rent a storage unit, move to a bigger space, or find a solution.

“We had contemplated this option for quite some time,” said Wilson, owner of the Columbia Laser Skin Center in Oregon.  “I did my research and even asked my professional organizer, Megan Spears of Disorder2Order, if she could recommend any solutions.  She swore by The Neat Company’s NeatDesk and NeatWorks  software.  The price was right—about two-thirds less than the other solutions that I was looking into—so I decided to try it out.”

The aesthetic medical services firm now digitizes any paper that comes through the office, and have made an impact on all those boxes and file cabinets of records. Spears recommended NeatDesk as the best way for Columbia Laser Skin Center to accommodate the volume of paper and the types of records with which the Columbia Laser Skin Center worked.

“I first saw Neat demonstrated at a NAPO conference in 2006 and was instantly attracted to its ease of use and integration with bookkeeping software programs,” said Spears of Disorder2Order. “Paper is in the crux of all filing problems and I had no doubt that what I saw in 2006 was going to be a leading product to watch in the document scanning and retention industry. It has surpassed all my expectations!”

Disorder2Order works with small business clients like Wilson and the Center to streamline their systems and become more efficient with their time. The professional organizing and consulting services company especially works with business professionals who need help in controlling their paper and creating a system that works for them.

“Neat’s easy-to-use software allows us to efficiently manage and organize our paper problem,” stated Wilson.  “It has liberated a ton of storage space and is a huge timesaver when we need to access important files, like archived charts on patients.  The ability that Neat has given us to transform our paper documents into digital files that are searchable is unmatched.”
