Recently I’ve encountered a challenge to make a series of HTTP POST requests with different parameters. This has forced me to look for existing tooling in the marketplace; the features I am looking for are getting POST request, editing the request and resending it.

Driving Innovation is the Key to Success
Stefan Avivson, CEO of Dexi.io explains: “Although Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is not a new concept, service providers have been using so called Robotic Processing for a decade now, but the amount of available data and the technology to process it has evolved tremendously over the past two years. There is basically no real limitation to the use of Big Data and there is no real effort in convincing people that RPA is the future. It’s more a question of knowing how! Utilizing the resources of our innovation team for our clients and partners has without doubt been one of the key drivers to our success!”
Let’s see more in the future of this cutting-edge cloud scrape service.
