Get Products, Reviews, Statistics and Search results from Software Advice/Capterra. It's fast and costs little.

Features

  • Get Categories

    Returns Software Advice's categories hierarchy. Useful to identify which Category keyword to use.

  • Get Products

    Returns all products for all categories up to the Maximum Input.

    Setting high maximum values for the number of results and categories will trigger a very long job, likely to be blocked at some point.

    In case that happens, use the From [i] Input to continue the process from where it stops (indicated in the logs as "[i] is..").

  • Get Products by Category

    You must set a Category keyword. All products belonging to a Category with that keyword will be returned.

    For example, if you set "accounting", the process will return products from Accounting Practice Management, Call Accounting, Nonprofit Accounting Software, etc.

  • Get Reviews

    First, the process "Get Search Results" runs and takes the first result as input.

    Returns customers' reviews for the given software.

  • Get Statistics

    First, the process "Get Search Results" runs and takes the first result as input.

    Returns statistics about the software customers (industry/rating distribution).

  • Get Search Results

    Returns search results from Software Advice database. This is useful to know which term comes first.

About Duplicates

One product can be linked to multiple categories, leading to duplicates.

You can clean up the data with a simple filter() in your code (e.g., JS):

1result = result.filter((arr, index, self) =>
2    index === self.findIndex((t) => (t.productUri === arr.productUri)));

How it works.

  1. Enter the Software name (Get Reviews, Get Statistics).

  2. Select a process to run (e.g., Get Reviews).

  3. Set optional Input values and crawler settings.

  4. Run it! πŸŽ‰

Note: All processes return raw data.
