The latest, most popular technological innovations have a common theme among them: Automating your life to make it easier and more efficient. Every single day, new gadgets are being released that are completing tasks we never imagined would be human-free activities.
Extract’s value extends well beyond just the information that is automatically captured.
There are many additional productivity tools in our UI that increase the speed and accuracy of users. With features like auto-zooming and highlighting all data on the image, there is a lot to talk about, but I’m going to dedicate the remainder of this blog post to my personal favorite: Extract’s swiping tools.
Introduce automated redaction to your workflows
We live in a world of instant gratification and immediate satisfaction which leads to companies wanting to speed up workflow processes to get higher quality work done, quicker.
