You can switch your Able2Extract license to a home computer

With COVID-19 self isolation, workers have been adjusting to a new daily routine. Major businesses, and small brick-and-mortar private businesses, have had to quickly adapt and prepare for shifting document workflows online, bracing themselves for higher volumes in online transactions over in-person interactions. Right now, technology is crucial to keeping customers connected to stores and services.

Indeed, businesses and professionals have to keep moving forward by figuring out how to make  that transition work. To that end, digital tools are doing the heavy lifting, and this has been the new normal for a couple of months.

For instance, Zoom is a growing favorite conferencing tool to keep virtual company meetings going.  Google Docs continues to be a front runner to help teams collaborate on documents.
