Overview

Learn how Flow quickly and easily automates day-to-day tasks using technology and the open web as your real-time database.

How It Works

Flow automation opens up a new browser window in the background and runs your specified Streams in real-time. Because it is local to your browser and not an API, it works on any site including ones that have credentials. 

Real-Time Automation

You may not see the window at first because Flow is running in the background. If you find the Flow window, you can watch as the stream runs your workflow in real-time and delivers fast results. For data acquisition Streams, you can watch as Flow scrapes the web for the most up-to-date data. 

Benefits

The browser automation technology runs the Streams from the source page, gathers the information needed, and returns it to you. This technology is real-time, providing the most up-to-date data on the marketplace, rather than returning data from a static database.
