WebHarvy's point and click interface : very easy to use

WebHarvy can be configured easily. Intelligently identifies patterns of data in web pages.

One of the major design goals which we had while developing WebHarvy is that our customers should be able scrape data from web sites with minimum amount of interaction with the software. This implies minimum amount of key presses and mouse clicks.

So while you are trying to scrape a list of repeating data items like name, address, email address, price etc from a web page, WebHarvy will not ask you whether you are trying to capture a single data item or a list of items, unlike other web data extraction software. If data repeats, WebHarvy will intelligently identify it.
