Reviews of Lobster_data
Best no-code EDI solution on the market
Comments: Bardo Schütz, CIO Customs Support Group: "Lobster Data has helped Customs Support Group during and after the Brexit to build custom-made interfaces with a large number of clients in 12 countries. A task that we had outsourced in the past which was costly and time-consuming has become our unique selling point. Thanks to the no-code solution and a little bit of help from our friends @ Lobster we delivered on time, in full, with top quality. We are ready for more!"
Anything possible, no-code EDI; everything we wanted, we delivered. Now ready for more
Hardly any weaknesses, we are very happy with release V4.5
Analyst Team Leader
Lobster Data is very easy to use and easy to pick up. with a very short training curve you are able to completed complex Data translations quickly and easily. The product its self is very robust so have minimal downtime which is critical for a customer facing system.
the "filters" (commands to format data) take a little time to get familiar with the names, however they do tend to be easily understood names.
Get easaly in control of your system integrations, without (external) developers
Comments: I am very pleased with the software, because it tackled issues we were having for years in a few weeks. It is also super stable, resulting in little to no errors on target systems. When using this product you keep getting ideas where Lobster could also be of use. It opened a window of opportunities for us.
With a relatively low amount of training I was able to successfully integrate two systems in a few weeks. We are in control of the whole process without having to use programmers, developers or engineers. The integration is easy to set-up. Scheduling are easy and monitoring tools give you great insights. The tool is extremely flexible giving you all the options you need. You can integrate different sources and targets and map data with ease (from and to excel/xml/csv/database/webservice, you name it). The knowledge bank is also very extensive and useful.
You need to have quite some IT background and knowledge of data processes and (SQL) scripting, to really make it work. The software is also not that intuitive, so a short training is needed to make it work.
Lobster Data and Pro
Lobster Data is a great tool and easy to use, the team at Lobster are also very supportive with any questions or issues and the scalability of Lobster is also very flexible. The pricing and packages Lobster offer are very competitive and they have always been supportive of any new or AD hoc Changes/requests we have and have supported us to grow our EDI landscape. We also find that Lobster is reliable and easy enough to use meaning we do not require additional EDI developers to support or create new maps for us.We also implemented Lobster Pro in 2022 and this has been a great success and received well by our users, the tool is easy to use and navigate compared to other products available but also a very powerful tool, we will definitely expand our use of Lobster Pro in future. I would definitely recommend anyone looking to setup EDI or who is looking for a new provider to consider Lobster.
No real areas that we feel we don't like or is difficult to use.
An amazing piece of software with endless capatiblities
Comments: Using Lobster saved us a lot of money and time. We no longer have to wait on the 3rd party software developers to take a few months delivering a new EDI when we can do it ourselves. Even better when we need some small changes made as we can do it ourselves right away. It also saves us money as we don't have to pay for the development time or the maintenance.
We mostly used to software for creating .XML files to map into our TMS system. We were able to get the customer's format and upload it straight into the software which would create the nodes for us. It saves a lot of time and mostly it's just a case of drag and dropping into our XML template.
There are not that many cons about this software. There are a lot of functions that can be used but they are all well documented on their knowledgebase.
