Mozenda

The Mozenda platform is well suited to some specific scenarios that may work well for your organization. It is especially helpful for basic scraping of information from simple websites. If the information you need to obtain is clearly stated on a website, then Mozenda is a simple solution to capture that data quickly and easily.

Octoparse

I used Octoparse to get mostly ecommerce data and it is working well. I think it can get data from most web pages as long as you can see it on the pages. Because it is scraping the data by getting into the source code of the page or something. And it is good for people who do research: the software can organize and clean the data, so you are able to export structured data into Excel or CSV. This is convenient for further analysis.

Pros

Mozenda

  • Action Items. Mozenda is broken down into a series of actions that can be performed on a page. Some actions take you to other pages. The action list, while short, provides a comprehensive set of tools for scraping just about any website (I haven't met one where it didn't work yet).
  • Error Handling. I've used some scraping tools that have virtually no error handling. Mozenda has great error handling; the software almost always pinpoints the exact action where the agent failed and why.
  • Speed. Mozenda is very fast at obtaining results. Other "bot" software can be slow and cumbersome but Mozenda plows through pages rapidly and accurately aggregates information.
  • XPath compatibility. One of the most powerful features of Mozenda is the integrated ability to use XPaths to get at the exact bits of information we're after on a particular website. Access to visible information is only limited by imagination.

Cons

Mozenda

  • The user interface for managing agents can be improved
  • When websites change, the agents could be better at dynamically updating
  • The "credit" usage can be confusing

Octoparse

  • there is more about practical use: sometimes you need to wait for the data to show in the preview section
  • there can be more tutorials for scraping popular websites like shoppee, wayfair etc.

Alternatives Considered

Mozenda

I'm only personally experienced with UBot Studio and Scrapy. UBot Studio isn't a bad application, though it has quite a large number of bugs when compared to Mozenda. UBot touts itself as low-code, but requires a significant understanding of programming logic to use the program effectively. Using UBot, we were able to get virtually all the results we wanted, but at a much higher labor cost than Mozenda. During initial implementation of UBot, it took me a full week to develop a particularly complicated agent. Using Mozenda, I was able to recreate the same agent in 4 hours. The ROI has been remarkable, and Mozenda really is a low-code platform.

Octoparse

I have absolutely no experience with any other web scraping tools. That being said, Octoparse is so good, I've never needed to go find another one to try out. Is it the best thing out there? I have no idea, nor would I be qualified to make that statement. But I can say for someone with little to no background, it's very easy to pick up and start using.
