Simply said we collect data from web sites that contain data you need to have for any reason.We deliver that data in form that you need and can use easily. In other words we put all data that is otherwise scattered all over the site (though it looks pretty for visitors-think IMDB) in a DB of your choice. It can be simple text format,or more specialized formats such as CSV,MYSQL,JSON,XML...
After you contacted us and explained your requirements we spend some time examining the site (sites) in question and think of the most efficient way to crawl (scrape,spider) the site for pages containing information you need,than we parse those pages and extract only data you need (product names,movie titles,prices,related images,dates,contact addresses...).After extraction is finished we organize data in a way we think is most useful or according to your specific instructions and pack them in a data base of your choice. In our work we use many different software tools: crawler,downloader,parser,data base management system... And almost always we need to program our own utilities to get the specific work done because every project is different and no software can cover all details that pop up in specific cases.
Our customers come from all walks of life so to speak,there isn't exact type,so here are couple of examples of people we worked with:
This is just to give you an idea of what is our service used for.
Although main and most obvious advantage of using our data extraction service is time saving there are other benefits too. To name some of them:
Since every project is different (in complexity,scale,timeframe,tools used,whether the process can be fully automated or includes more of manual work...) there isn't a fixed price of course. But we can promise couple of things:
