Lobster Data and Pro

Reviewed on 9/1/2023

Pros

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.

Cons

No real areas that we feel we don't like or is difficult to use.

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.

Pros

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.

Cons

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.

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.

Pros

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.

Cons

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.

Overall, it _data has helped us in realizing some of the EDI integration ideas that would be difficult to make happen otherwise, given the time requirements of our projects. Given a chance, I will suggest Lobster _data whenever data extraction and transformation needs will need tackling in corporate envrionments.

Pros

From my experience, the absolutely best feature about Lobster _data is how reliable it is and, equally important, that it has had me covered for most of the EDI integration projects. Whenever there was a new customer with some EDI file format, I could assume that _data already has the basic template to start me with.

Icing on the cake was the fantastic software support, which in 100% of cases was approachable, professional and effective.

Cons

A fly in the ointment for me and most of my colleagues has always been either lack or nonexistence of readily available English versions of the help system and documentation. It is a minor issue but something frustrating nevertheless.
