The Mozenda platform is being utilized by our organization primarily for scraping prices from various wholesale websites. The Mozenda platform allows us to customize the scraping agent to include unique credentials and obtain pricing information is that is unavailable through other products. The mozenda platform is only being utilized by one department in our organization, the pricing department.
  • Dynamic agent creation
  • Clean graphical user interface for agent design
  • Excellent customer support when necessary
  • 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
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.

In one department of our company, having access to large amounts of information from the web is essential. Rather than subscribe to a data service, we have been able to use Mozenda to curate our own content from a variety of sources. It is fast, easy to use, and is a robust platform that scrapes the web better than anyone else I've seen.
  • 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.
  • Page Credits. It's hard to determine exactly how many page credits will be used in a scraping action. You can end up using a lot more page credits than you bargain for unless you really know what you're doing. Page credits are the lifeblood of the SaaS.
  • Software Intelligence. This is a pro and a con. The software has built-in intelligence that tries to understand what the agent writer intends. Sometimes this results in new columns being added to the results when the results should be fit into existing results columns.
  • Testing Bugs. You can test an agent in the Agent Builder, but it is kind of buggy. There are times when it hangs and then the only way to get out of it is to open Task Manager and end the task.
  • Windows Only. Enough said.
To date, we've had a lot of success collecting the information we require with Mozenda. I haven't encountered a specific example where Mozenda isn't a good fit. In fact, it was using another builder that had some pretty significant limitations that sent me looking for something like Mozenda. While Mozenda is several times more expensive than the previous tool, the return on our investment was almost immediate (less than one month). Definitely worth it!
