Pros: * The visual editor makes web automation accessible to people who aren't familiar with coding.
* All web automation "robots" that you build are run by Dexi, you won't have to set up a server/scheduler by yourself.
* Support for many 3rd party services (captcha solvers, cloud storage, etc) which you can easily integrate into your robots.

Web automation is far from as simple as people think. I have plenty of experience working with various automation frameworks (Selenium, mostly), so I'm well aware of how difficult these things can be at times. So I'm rather impressed with what the Dexi team has managed to put together here.

While the support team can be a bit slow to respond at times (and this is coming from someone on the priciest account tier), they definitely know their stuff. Any problems you encounter in Dexi can usually be solved by them, though the time it takes for said solution varies a lot (anything from one day to over a month).

It's not a perfect service, but it's constantly being improved, and I'm excited to see what an awesome product Dexi will be in the future. For now, it definitely meets the minimum requirements that one would expect from a web automation framework.

Cons: * Lacks some advanced functionality that you'd find in other automation frameworks.
* The "Dexi" browser has many quirks that you have to account for when building robots it is by no means 1:1 with a common browser like Chrome.
* Documentation could be a lot better.
* API endpoints are a bit lacking.
* Various UI annoyances, especially in the robot editor.

The robot editor in Dexi is both a blessing and a curse. If you're not used to working with web automation, you'll find it a lot more useful than having to write code, but if you're well-versed in Selenium for example, you'll definitely experience some frustration at times.

Dexi has an API, which is good and all, but there's many things that could be done via their API that there's no support for right now. For example, retrieving artefacts from a failed execution (logs, screenshots).

There's also the fact that your bots aren't being executed in "normal" browser, but rather Dexi's custom browser. This means that actions you can perform with no problem in your own web browser may not work the same way when you try them out in a Dexi robot. And if you do encounter this, and there's no other way to execute the action you're trying to perform, you're completely out of luck, and have to contact the Dexi support team for assistance.

I realize that my usage of this software is probably a bit more advanced than the average user, so these complaints may not apply to your use case. Dexi is, overall, a good service.

Overall: Mass data extraction.

Dexi.io Is GREAT!

Pros: Love how easy it is to get started and how it's connected to an API out of the box. It's as easy as click and accept.

Cons: It's pretty complicated to understand flow but they're support is great. Sometimes the bots are annoying to debug.

Overall: Flexible tool! Really cool. Loved what I learned and am still using them.

Very good product and services indeed

Comments: Our company has been using Dexi.io's services for a little more than a year, for scraping purposes. The service does a great job at gathering the data that we need. Dexi.io also can design custom made robots for specific tasks and does some maintenance when the sites to be scraped change. The customer service is reactive and professional. Overall a very good service. Keep going !!

This is a great product with an outstanding customer support

Comments: I have used CloudScrape to download data from a specific website that does not primarily and easily provide download links. I found this product after two weeks of examining different options, including some of the well known commercial softwares. What made me choose it was the great customer support. They provided me every support I requested and even added some features to their product to even better deliver what I wanted. Moreover, it is very used friendly and easy to use for any person. It was also very fast. I would recommend considering it as a serious option for online data scraping tasks.
