What People Are Saying About Our Tools

I used the program couple of times to convert some small documents. All I can say that I had no problem converting those PDF documents into Word files. I was really satisfied of the quality of the conversion.
I just found this program called Able2Extract that turns PDFs into Excel and saved me HOURS. Awesome.#technology
Able2Extract has been included within our arsenal of technology tools and it has proven to not only increase our efficiency in conducting an audit, but it has also enabled us to achieve certain audit requirements that would have otherwise been impractical to satisfy.

Able2Extract enables our people to take data from a format that does not allow manipulation (i.e., text or pdf) and convert it to Excel allowing us to analyze and perform audit tests. We have found that the conversion process is completed quickly and data integrity is maintained consistently.To put it simply, Able2Extract is a practical and easy to use tool. It will be your go-to tool of choice for data conversion.
