Extract Specific Data from Web Pages
Web scraping is a logical, efficient and affordable way to speed up or automate the process of harvesting or gathering specific information from web sites. The web is vast, and manual searches can take days, weeks or months of man hours to gather the equivalent information a web crawler will retrieve in seconds.
To maximise output, and ensure responsible use, we offer a professional and rapid web scraping service tailored to individual organisational needs. Information is quickly and responsibly extracted from web pages without causing harm to the host environment. We can even set up SMS text messaging alerts for changes that need a prompt business response. Business intelligence gathering is increasingly practiced and once retrieved, agile data can be sent directly to database, other application or in your preferred format: Excel, CSV, XML or HTML.
Exbos offer a range of data mining solutions to help your business extract data openly available information from the internet. Our customizable web spider/crawler solutions, code named Athena, can trawl multiple web sites to extract specific information using pattern matching or even summarizing whole pages. Once collected, web data is exportable into feeds or directly inserted into a database for querying.
