Our biggest update ever!

On the 2nd of April, we launched a new version of Import.io with many enhanced capabilities. The highlights include:

  • 100% web based experience including an all-new web extractor
  • Scheduler – schedule your extraction runs right from our UI
  • Data Storage – allow us to store your data for you
  • Upgraded JavaScript support
  • Highly scalable backend
  • Customer Success team
  • Premium plans for business users

This new release will allow us to continue to drive out new features to you as fast as possible.

Try our new update now!  

To accompany today’s release we are excited to introduce our new Customer Success team.  They are here to help you get the most value out of Import.io. They will accompany you on your journey into web data from the very moment that you sign up.

And if that wasn’t enough, to top it all off, we are announcing premium plans for those of you who are using Import.io for business purposes.

If you are a non-business user (e.g. Not for profit, researcher, student, lecturer etc)

and need access to the premium capabilities but cannot afford them, we’ve got you covered. Contact us and as part of our Give Back program we’d be pleased to support you in your needs.

What’s new?

Unified Workflow

Unifited Workflow

We believe in an easy and enjoyable user experience.  With our new update, there is one path to go from website to data.

Cloud Based

Cloud Based

The new Import.io is completely cloud based.  Training websites and accessing web data occurs entirely in your favorite web browser. This is a core foundation of our future, and we are just getting started with it.

Overhauled Engine

We built a new platform to power the new Import.io. What that means for you is as follows:

  • You can now query faster than ever before due to our upgraded JavaScript parser.
  • We can handle the extraction of data from multiple web pages on your behalf, which means that you can extract from many web pages without leaving your computer on all night.

Pricing

We are introducing new pricing plans with this new version of Import.io. You can now upgrade to get premium features and support. Perfect for those people who like driving in the fast lane.

What do you get for being a premium user? Glad you asked…

Premium features

  • Increased query limit – We have plans to fit all different project sizes
  • Faster query rate – Hyperdrive your extraction
  • Store – we will store the data for you
  • Customer success team with fast response times

Premium support

We are committed to your success. Premium users will have access to the Customer Success team to help you with any questions you may have.  As a premium user, you will have committed response times and one-on-one assistance via your preferred method of communication.

Interested in our premium plans? Here is our pricing page.

Our sales team are the best people to speak with to answer any questions.

Existing Users

If you are an existing user, you might be wondering how all of these changes affect you and your existing data.  We’ve got you covered!

The existing products will remain in place.

You will be able to query and extract new data exactly the same as before.

The premium tiers apply to our new platform. The only change for existing users is that support for all non-premium users will be community-based only going forwards.

Can I still access my data on the old platform?

Yes!  If you log into Import.io using a web browser you will see the new platform but if you log into Import.io using the desktop application you will see the old platform.

For new users, the desktop application will no longer be available to download. For users who signed up prior to 2nd April 2016, we will provide the download link if you need to reinstall.   Please reach out to support@import.io should you need the link.

What about my integrations?

  • The old Query API at https://api.import.io/store/connector/{my_connector_guid}/_query?input={my_input_field:my_input_value}&_apikey={my_api_key} will continue to work for the old platform (no changes needed!)
  • The new platform has a new query API.  You can check out the API docs.

The Future…

We hope you enjoy our latest version. We are committed to rapid and constant improvements.

If you have anything you would like to see us do, please email us at hello@import.io.
