How did you discover Import.io?

I found Import.io on a google search when I was looking for a web extraction tool. Once I found Import.io, I started using it immediately and realized it was way more than just web extraction. I could get information that I never thought was as easy to access as it was through Import.io and I started building analytics right away.

What’s your favorite feature?

My favorite feature is the ability to change URLs very quickly and then build a list of those URLs so I can essentially model different kinds of information that is easy to find on the web, but not so easily extracted from the web. It’s a very quick and simple way to build out spreadsheets from different sources and different websites and consolidate it into one database.

How do you use Import.io?

We use Import.io to create content that we use in a lot of discussions where clients are wanting to find Internet of Things or IoT data to use in their analytics. Import.io is a much faster and easier way to get to that information, share it internally, and build analytics on it.

For organizations that are looking to gather competitive pricing and product reviews, Import.io allows them to easily get that information and repeat the gathering of that information without coding. Import.io enables a larger user audience to explore, think, and learn how they can use internet information.
