my own ERR / parsing data from html

Hello Guys,

I need to build a simple ERP for my startup, which is about buying services.

Its input data will be taken from company's administration pages, i.e orders, customers, service etc.

So, 2 main issues:

a) How I can parse all those data from a protected (w/ password) page
b) Which drag n drop tool (like Filemaker) I should use, given I am not a professional programmer?

If this helps,  I am a Mac user.

Thank you

Dim.

Look for a low-code / no-code solution.  I would  start with FileMaker Advanced https://www.filemaker.com/products/filemaker-pro-advanced/  Also check out other options:

https://www.kintone.com/
https://zudy.com/

From experience, these things often times seem simple until you go down the rabbit hole and you realize how complex and time consuming it can be to not only build out, but maintain.  If this is not your core competency,  it could very well eat up the much needed time required to run your start up.  Can you get most of what you want out of the box from Quickbooks https://quickbooks.intuit.com/, Freshbooks https://www.freshbooks.com/, Wave https://www.waveapps.com/ or perhaps a platform like salesforce with an erp module https://appexchange.salesforce.com/category/erp.
