What is the Difference between Populate and Populate LITE?
The major difference between Populate and Populate LITE is how the accuracy of the output is validated. Whereas Populate is reviewed by US-based GruntWorx human validation specialists, Populate LITE is validated by the customer in a user-friendly application specifically designed by GruntWorx. With it’s web-based UI, users are able to quickly and accurately review data at their own pace.
