If I were to compare the time spent on doing this, like two years ago, when we have had to manually go to websites and look at every single article, we are now reducing the time spent on this workflow to around 1/4. Octoparse is the major help for the content team.

About Dealogic

Dealogic is a data analytics company offering integrated content, analytics, and technology to professionals and institutions in the financial industry. By providing valuable insights through data and content, Dealogic helps their clients make smarter, faster, and more informed investment decisions.

The Challenge

The main challenge Dealogic faced was how to compile data accurately while keeping up with the ever-change financial market. 


The Solution

Dealogic is currently using Octoparse to scrape a considerable amount of data from various financial platforms. Having access to a wealth of information allows them to keep their fingers on the pulse of the financial market. 


Why Octoparse

Get data on a global scale

“Previously we worked with an international data provider, while all we had to realize is that they also miss deals. They also missed those several cases which we should have captured. That's why we decided to do it ourselves with Octoparse so we can make sure that we don't lose any significant information.

Reduce turnaround time by 50%

“If I were to compare the time spent on doing this, like two years ago, when we have had to manually go to websites and look at every single article, we are now reducing the time spent on this workflow to around 1/4. Octoparse is the major help for the content team.”


“The turnaround time, the time spent between the article being published on a website and by the time it engaged clients upon every hand, was nine hours before. After using Octoparse to speed up the process, we have shortened it to a half.”

Less people, more work done

“If I'm looking at the metrics of how our data sourcing has been speeded up in the last year, then Octoparse’s help is surely enormous. So while previously there were like three people working on sourcing the data, going through with the articles. Now only one person is required.”

Get started easy and quick

“As for other tools for example, we had issues with how to set the data and how to identify it. So mainly why we decided to go with Octoparse, from a user perspective, is because Octoparse is quite simple to set up a scraping workflow, different from other tools based on coding knowledge.”


“The training is quite well. It's easy to understand how Octoparse works. And if someone gets to know and sets up a couple of tasks, then all the bits and pieces could be figured out very easily.”

 Octoparse is made for success


Octoparse service, answers on the question are definitely a major help for the content team. And it is definitely testified from a client perspective as well as they get data faster and with a similar quality, if not even better.
