[Octoparase User Review]¬†By Nithin Cheruthala¬†‚ÄstBasic¬†Plan User

I’ve tried cloud extraction. The speed of simple link extraction has impressed me: over 3000 links in 1.5 minutes. It’s a useful tool for me to scrape information for recruitment. It worked well.

I tried this software as it is very simple to use and there are many video tutorials explaining how to run it. No code is necessary, very good. Software molto buono (Italian). Enrico Italy try this software in a complicated website and few seconds it grab all the information that I need in few seconds with best quality! Without error!

Pros and Cons

The pros are the ease of use, with a wide variety of choices for extraction and page navigation. Everything visible on the page can be extracted. It also has options to export the extracted data to different platforms (TXT, Excel, databases ). Customer support is very good and solve problems immediately.

Cons may be the nonexistence of developer forums even though there are Facebook Group to discuss. Also, the user interface was confusing and I tried many times to figure it out. And I contacted the CS through email and got the response several days after.

But overall the software is very very good.

Overview and Advice

The software can be downloaded and used for free. Of course you should pay for some advanced functions if you want. But as a primary user without any knowledge of programming, the basic version is completely enough. The scrape rules are easy to be set, and I can even talk to the technical support team of Octoparse and ask for help. So far so good, and I will study some other features of Octoparse. It is a actual good tool for e-commerce.

I advice you to add some more tutorial videos so that the customers can

get to know how to use the tool more efficiently, and regarding pagination we face problems while some dynamic page numbers which don’t show page results if they got no pages for any particular page.
