EDX can easily and accurately extract data from within a PDF document
Accurate WEB scraping - ability to “scrape” WEB sites i.e extract data from anywhere on the WEB page not only from tables by breaking down the WEB page into individual “elements”

- Active Dates in Year (set a specific date that will activate every year.
- Active Weekly Day map (set the active days of the week together with the time window for each day of the week)
Display Formats – ability to set variety of different display formats to attach to each extracted data item
Large selection of different format types including Date-Time manipulation into any standard format by providing both the input and output date/time masks
