Mozenda

A web-scraping tool with different price plans.

The web is a valuable resource for many research endeavours.

Web scraping is the practice of using computers to capture content from the web in a manner that makes it legible for subsequent analysis. Typically, web scraping is offered as a service rather than a tool.

Mozenda is a tool that can be used to scrape data from websites to a CSV or an excel file.

It can be programmed to move through and extract information from an entire website.

Customer support is eager to organise a video conference and go through with you, the step by step programming, which is quite easy to set up.

There is a free 14 day trial where you can scrape data from up to 500 pages, after that there is a cost involved.
