Kadence International is a boutique market research firm with global reach. They offer a full suite of market research services to companies ranging from startups to Fortune 500 brands. The Kadence Boston office approached Setfive with a unique project with a unique set of constraints.
The Kadence team was interested in building a tool to automate extracting data from a Japanese weather website based on the locations that had been indicated in completed Kadence surveys.
Drawing on our past experience, we suggested building an Electron app that Kadence analysts would be able to use on their laptops to scrape data as they needed it.
The app was a big hit with the Kadence analysts. It saved them hundreds of hours of tedious work over the course of the project and allowed them to focus on analyzing and understanding the data.
Overall we think Electron is a great platform which allows companies to explore ideas like automation without a large upfront investment.
