This post highlights some of the biggest changes made to Grepsr, so that you can see how we’ve made it easier and faster than ever to source data reliably from the web.
Since we started Grepsr, we wanted to make data collection easier for the good of all small businesses, everywhere. An important part of that, for us, was to think beyond offering pure DIY tools for technology-savvy people to more fully-realized (and more accessible) “solutions” for their teams and customers. Part of this is simple math — there are many fewer potential customers for products that require advanced technical skills to use — but we’ve also come to realize that this same thinking can also unlock huge value even among highly technical audiences.
Today, hundreds of tech and non-tech professionals use Grepsr to automate the messy process of web data collection and follow through simple steps to get what they really want — complete, clean and organised data. Every week, we learn about new companies using Grepsr to bring best B2B data into their system for sales and business development, market and competitive research, and other pieces of vital information for their business.
Now we’re taking things to the next level.
When we first launched Grepsr, we were just 2 people. Since then, our team has grown to 15 full time staff. Simplifying the messy process of web data collection was our first step. But we know an easier and faster way to get these data at your fingertips significantly improves the work everyone’s doing. Both are big steps forward in our mission to create a place where everyone can access more, better data in less time— and through our own experiences with growth, as well as conversations with our customers, we realized we needed to rethink some key things about the product to scale well. Instead of trying to tack on a bunch of features, we decided to do a complete rethink.
After almost a year in the works, we couldn’t be more excited to share it with the world.
Re-engineered from the ground up, it sports a whole new look and feel, the ability to invite your colleagues/clients to share and access the data from anywhere, and a brand new Chrome app. Best of all, it comes with a better services-oriented architecture. We now also offer an API-enabled solution so the data gear-heads can plug it into their own systems to grind and mash with their other data. We think you’re going to love it!
Don’t worry, it’s still the same Grepsr you know and love, just all grown up. If you already have a Grepsr account, simply login and you’ll be guided through a quick tour of the changes. If you’re new to Grepsr, we hope you’ll give it a shot. Click here to sign up for a free account.
