This new version is capable of extracting text information from the files, such as CSV, or HTML that are stored in File-type Data Item, and stores it into String-type automatically.

In the Credit Check Process of a supplier, for example, the processing of adding the approved supplier information to the existing supplier CSV file will be fully automated using together with other automatic features. It is also possible to eliminate the risk of intentional information deletion or tampering with the contents.
