Data Collection API

Large-scale, distributed data collection and web research via API.

Use Cases

Our combination of humans and machine learning is built to solve a wide range of use cases. Our goal is to power innovation, wherever that may be.

Scalable, Automated Data Collection

Powered by our incredible Scaler community, we provide best-in-class accuracy through our dead-simple API.

Data Collection at Scale

We're built to solve your large-scale data operation, build your lead list, and enrich your database. We work with some of the largest companies to power their data operations.

Best-in-Class Accuracy

Scale uses a combination of skilled humans and sophisticated reviewing technology to offer best-in-class accuracy and data integrity. We pride ourselves in our ability to deliver quality.

Elegant Automation

Unlike solutions that require you to work with messy CSVs or archaic FTP integrations, we provide automation through an easy-to-use API. It's never been easier to build human-in-the-loop apps.

We Are Scalable

We are built to handle millions of requests per month. Scale is powered by our distributed team of hard-working Scalers augmented with machine learning technology.

Our effective screening, training, and routing software help ensure that we deliver only the highest quality at scale.
