    Pros

    Mozenda is exactly what we were looking for our business. Only one function of instant customer reports makes you fall in love with this from the first click. It literally receives a minimum of effort to sit down and start working. The process of merging all data sources is extremely fast and smooth, so it's a pleasure to use. And most importantly, you WANT to work with this. So the productivity of labor has increased at times, this is definitely one of the most profitable investments. It probably would be one of the best for those, who don't have any technical experience.

    Cons

    To be frank with you, the visual component not the key. Possibilities of customization of interface could be richer, some competitors in this aspect are considerably stronger. But seriously, whether colorful interface would help you to do your work more productively?

    Complex web scrapes captured needed data unavailable by 3rd parties without spending beyond our budget. Great marketing tool to develop address, phone, and/or email lists. Their support is awesome but you will use them a lot to get things done.

    Pros

    This tool allowed us to capture data from difficult website areas. It's high-end capabilities and features made obtaining required data possible. Customer support very responsive and knowledgeable.

    Cons

    Hard to use and understand programming terms needed to develop proper scrapes. It is easy to do a basic scrape but once data got complex, support always had to be called in.

    Hi Pete, Thank you for being a great customer. And, thank you for your review and the five-star ratings for customer support and functionality. There are 1.8 Billion websites online today and we work hard to make sure that Mozenda can scrape and extract data from the simple to the most complex. For the majority of the websites online, website data can be extracted utilizing our simple point and click interface. We also agree with you that some websites are so complicated that sometimes it requires a phone call to our friendly staff for help setting up the Web Scraping Agents. This is why we offer free phone and email customer support. We also prefer sharing our computer screens in real time so that the communication is seamless. Have an excellent day!

    Perfect to use for scraping/integrating with multiple data sources online. This tool really knows no boundaries - it scrapes almost anything you can imagine

    Cons

    We haven't seen any obvious shortcomings - UI is intuitive, support is solid and tool is stable. There are plenty of competition though so they will need to keep up.

    Pros

    The tool is pretty easy to get started with and no technical knowledge is required to scrape some data with it.

    Cons

    Not at all recommended for serious business requirements since the crawler breaks every now and then and gives unreliable data. Better to go with a fully managed web scraping service.

    I've used Mozenda twice now for two different projects. I'm semi-technical and I found it pretty easy to use once I got started. If you've never used something like this then you'll need to invest a 1-3 hrs in learning it properly but once you do you will be flying. I plan to use them again.

    Pros

    sometimes it can be hard to setup a scrape

    My experience has been great with the product and the team at Modenza. It has enabled me to ingest a large number of data point and focus my time on statistical analysis vs. data collection.

    Pros

    Cons

    No to date other than cost. I used it monthly or so $100 is a bit costly but it saves me some serious legwork which makes it worth it.

    Started using the system about a year ago. The ease of building agents and the intuitive approach of the software is remarkable. What amazes me is the customer service. I have owned my company for 16 years and never did i have the experience as i had with Mozenda. Not only there is always someone to help, but everyone is extremely friendly and truly wants to help. All the steps to resolve whatever issue were explained and resolved within the hour. Wish Microsoft would learn customer service etiquette from Mozenda.

    Pros

    Ease of use and the ability to have the help desk resolve all issues- quickly

    Cons

    You can only run two agents at once, not the end of the world, but it would be nice to be able to run more.

The UI is great. I had one snag with Microsoft defender preventing me from installing it and I called support and they knew in an instant what to do next. Great system.

    When I need a quick way to grab structured web data, Mozenda will be my first choice. It took time to learn the tool, but when you master it - there are lot's of powerful features

    Pros

    Powerful features and a lot of use cases can be addressed by the platform:
    * Powerful scrapping configurations
    * Scheduling
    * Webservices API
    * Collections unification into a master one
    * Many different websites supported

    Cons

    * Flash sites are not supported
    * Desktop Agent Builder is slow, sometimes gets stuck
    * Many XPath capabilities are not supported
    * Difficult to "debug" to understand why things are not working as expected

    As is always the way these days, I'm measuring my satisfaction in terms of what has (or in this case hasn't) gone wrong. It took a little bit of learning and tweaking to get things running but, starting as an absolute novice, I've now got Mozenda capturing my data, uploading to AWS, running daily and without issue. It's reliable, I'm perfectly happy my data will appear every day and there are sufficient sysetms in place that I even get an alert email on the odd occasion the crawls do not run (often an issue at my end, rather than theirs).

    Pros

    Powerful, functions, customisable, automatable.

    Cons

    One experience of a bug using up all my credits, but that's by far an outlier.

    Setting up a new ecommerce site with product informaiton

    Value for Money

    We set up a new ecommerce site and we found that our suppliers were not well equipped to deliver us good quality product information. However, the information was readily availability on their website. I searched for many data scraping software but found out that only Mozenda was capable to deliver even the most complex product information extractions (I tested about three other similar software). In just few days I managed to extract product information from thousands of products with very little effort. I then refined the extracted data in Excel to get unique product information. For basic data capturing (such as tables, simple text, links and pictures) you can learn to use the platform in about hour or two. However, if you don't have experience in XML or HTML, more advanced functions like using Xpath may take some more time to get hang out of. Only minus side was that the tutorial page was outdated and I could not get holistic view of the product support. Also, you have to install a dedicated agent software to your PC. The software was sometimes a bit laggy and crashed few times. These issues were minor ones compared to the functionality and utility of the whole service. If you need to scrape large data sets, I would definitely urge you to try Mozenda before deciding anything else.

    Pros

    It's functionality and utility. I could execute almost anything I could imagine needing from a data scraping software

    Cons

    Support site was not consistent. The support launched from the agent was different from the website. There also seems to be random videos on Youtube. This needs be improved. Also, the agent crashed every now and then. Finally, it was very difficult to cancel the subscription. There was only a cancel account link, which I was not certain of.

    Using Mozenda to scrape a few sites for the data we needed was MUCH faster than custom building any solution. The user interface is intuitive, pricing very reasonable, and support was outstanding. Have used Mozenda for many years and will continue to use it.

    Pros

    Easy UI to click on elements to capture etc.

    Cons

    There were a few things that weren't quite as obvious or intuitive as I had thought, but were still possible after talking to support. For example, if a site doesn't have an easy pagination portion and I want to just manually provide a list of links etc. Was able to get it done with the help of support.
