What we were hoping to achieve by integrating a new data provider?
“We wanted to expand our coverage overall especially across difficult-to-reach sources such as forums, message boards and comments.”
Selection process – what was important and how did you come to your decision?
“We needed a reliable data provider that could source the data from difficult to reach sources and unify the different sources into a simple structured and readable format. It was also important that we could easily integrate this data directly into our solution so that we could conduct our robust analyses for our clients. After checking many data providers offerings we came across Webhose.io who are in my opinion an industry leader in this space. Webhose.io provided us with exactly what we needed. Extensive coverage, easy integration, clean high quality data and it was an easy decision.”
“Webhose.io has helped us expand our coverage and add an extra angle to our offering that our clients are very happy about. The easy to use and integrate API allows us to filter the relevant data directly into our platform in a structured format. The expanded coverage, reduced latency coupled with easy source additions and great service makes Webhose.io an essential partner and one of the best data providers we have ever worked with.”
