Receive Lite vs. Premium

Which option is the right fit for you and your institution?


Which version should you choose?

Receive Lite

Your office processes a couple of transcripts per day. A manual process of downloading each one individually as a pdf works for you.

Receive Premium

Your office workflows require additional features or you want to automatically process documents quickly and efficiently into your system.

Initially, there is always discomfort around implementing something new. But today, our staff can’t believe where we are. And we’ve eliminated overtime.
