Who is it for?
Octoparse is perfect for businesses of all sizes and individuals of all backgrounds. Web data is no longer an asset exclusive to people with technical skills.
Anyone can use Octoparse to build a crawler in minutes. Octoparse not only has made the lives of tens of thousands of developers easier by providing a one-stop platform to take care of all crawling processes, but it has also made web data accessible to those that want web page data but do not necessarily have the programming skills.
How does Octoparse scrape websites?
Octoparse automatically extracts web page data as it simulates real human browsing actions, such as opening a web page and clicking on a page element/button. The whole extraction process is defined automatically in a workflow with each individual action representing a particular interaction with the target webpage.
If you are feeling lucky, your target data may be auto-detected as soon as you enter the webpage URL or there may be a ready-to-use template already available for your target website.
