Any equivalent software package to Monarch by Datawatch

Monarch is a windows data mining package developed by Datawatch and is used extensively by a company I work for.  Many users simply use it to extract data from large, multi page text reports and to then load that cut-down data set into Excel for manipulation.

Are there any equivalent software packages available that I can evaluate with a view to replacing Monarch with something that may not be as powerful, but is cheaper to purchase.  The main requirement of the tool is to be able to allow users to map portions of any text report output and to extract that mapped data.

While Monarch is a very good, powerful tool it is also expensive to purchase (£400+ per user licence) and we are trying to cut costs.  A recent evaluation has determined that we don't have enough licences and it will be very costly to resolve this unless we can use an alternative, cheaper product.

Another alternative might be to install Monarch on one machine that is available via RDP and let users access it one at a time. Check the license.

I used Monarch for several years and it is a great product. As I started programming more it became easier to just use VB to open files, extract data and write it to a final destination.

Here are some products that look similar:
