Any suggestions?

Because of how our chart of accounts was set up years before I ever started working for my organization, we now have almost 700 accounts and it's still growing. I would either be forced to upgrade at Inuit's regular market price, or I would have to completely start over without the 10+ years of historical data contained in my records. I would gladly pay a higher admin fee to TechSoup or even possibly subscribe to Boost to access QuickBooks Online Advanced. We just converted to online last year, so it's really frustrating that Intuit is putting limits on their subscription tiers.

Facebook is used by around half of America’s teens, but it no longer dominates the teen social media landscape. The top sites among today’s teens include YouTube (85%), Instagram (72%) and Snapchat (69%). Lower-income teens are more likely than higher-income teens to use Facebook. Around three-quarters of Facebook users are not aware that the site lists their traits and interests for advertisers.

We had also applied to set up as a Microsoft NP during the same time. That was our mistake. We were declined by MS before Techsoup approved us (they requested additional documents).  So the question is, how do we appeal with Microsoft and start the process again? We meet all their criteria as a historical society. I think the issue was simply that Techsoup hadn't completed our approval yet. The problem is, if I go into Microsoft NPO now, it simply shows denied and doesn't offer any option to reapply. Any suggestions?

What you are looking for is called ICR. Similar to OCR but can read handwriting. Would be happy to chat offline if you would like to provide an example I can demonstrate the accuracy so you can consider cost-benefit of software vs manual labor. Ultimately you would create a template of the waiver and identify which answers should be extracted while labeling them accordingly so they can be placed in the correct column. Your configuration is rather simple so not an expensive project by any means but it really comes down to the accuracy of the extraction to see if it is worth it or not.  Our app is priced per image so there is no long-term commitment or subscription fees. Simply pay for 3,000 images (assuming they are 1 page each) and the one-time configuration/training.

I would estimate around 3000 waivers. It would be a one-time need. We have moved to a digital format as of January 2019 but we need to archive our 2018 waivers.  Forum Post: RE: QuickBooks, 19 Feb 2019 18:34:00 GMTcaa7681b-025a-49ce-809f-7435bfe4d232:662dae0d-230b-44f0-87fa-d46d8f9263bfbaily_ann Hi Adrian, Occasionally inventory for the products listed on TechSoup runs out, and at that time you are unable to place a request until new inventory is received.

Or are there several waiver formats where the information exists in different locations on the document? How many waivers to do you need to process? Is this a one-time need or a recurring process?
