Möhrle Happ Luther encountered a challenge in data processing. In their consulting work, data needed for Excel processing was typically only available in PDF formats, particularly for annual financial statements, and total and balance lists. The auditing environment was marked by outdated approaches that involved laborious manual checks of random samples and their documentation. Similar challenges were also present in tax consultancy, where manually tracking written documents in working papers and reading invoices took a significant amount of time.

DataSnipper is exactly what we were looking for. The ability to identify and export information in PDF files without having to type it out manually is a real game changer. The time savings for us are enormous. My team and I can no longer imagine working without DataSnipper.
