Simple conversions from Acrobat PDF docs that have been created by Word, Excel, etc., probably do not need this program. But if you are ever faced with anything more than simple, straightforward conversions, this program is definitely worth it and will save hours of work. I have not found anything else that even comes close.

Import.io

Import.io excels greatly at being able to execute a scraping campaign for your needs within only a few minutes. It is appropriate if you need to be able to scrape data of a large or small scale on a daily basis. Once you've created a scraping crawler you can just execute it and come back after lunch to enjoy your data without second guessing the accuracy of it.

Cons

  • It's a little challenging to edit the row breaks.
  • Sometimes selecting all the pages in a document is cumbersome. "Select all" with custom conversion does not always choose all pages.

  • Pricing needs to be addressed immediately , this use to be free and so helpful
  • A desktop application needs to be reintroduced since it recently went all cloud based
  • Additional scraping features would be nice to see when compared to other open source competitors

Alternatives Considered

None, except for conversions in Acrobat.

There are pros and cons to import.io the strongest being that it is extremely easy to set up and use as there are wizards and guides built in to hold your hand throughout the process but at the same token it does not have all the full-featured bells and whistles you may need for your scrape on a more advanced level.

Return on Investment

  • I save hours of work when dealing with client information. It takes only a few documents for me to recover the cost of this software in time saved.
