As PDF is the dominant format for corporate document sharing, it is no wonder there is a wide selection of complimentary tools that can help you get more done when working with this file format.
Even though Adobe also has its set of additional tools and extensions, at times they can cost a lot of money.
Luckily, there are a lot of free options a professional can choose in order to be more productive.
One tool that is particularly popular among lawyers, accountants and HR managers is this free PDF to Excel online software.
The beauty of this tool is that it allows you to convert extensive PDF reports without any limitations on the number of files you can convert, or their size.
For example, an accountant can easily take a large annual financial report in PDF format and convert the figures into editable and collectable financial stats. Similarly, an HR representative from a big corporation can easily convert job application data saved in PDF format into editable Excel sheets and save a lot of time by doing so.
PDF to Excel converter is not only more time efficient, but also more effective. By giving the software the task to compile data, the number of mistakes that a human would make while transferring data manually is much smaller.
You can easily use this tool by following the 3 simple steps below.
To start, take the PDF file you want to convert by clicking on the Select button, as seen from the image above. A great bonus for this tool is the fact that you can use it with any device, as the page is absolutely responsive. This means that you can finish all the paperwork from either your PC, laptop, tablet or a mobile phone.
Lastly, click the green Convert button in the third section. Your conversion should take only a couple of minutes. In rare cases it can take a bit longer (up to 30 minutes) if there are a lot of conversions in queue.
That was it, a really simple and free way to save yourself some time at work. Feel free to check this tool out for yourself.
