Building a Mobile Centric Marketplace
Building such a platform required scraping information from multiple websites continuously and maintaining a separate server for such crawls. Setting up an infrastructure, and spending time developing a crawler and maintaining it was too much of an opportunity cost for George, hence he decided to outsource this service to PromptCloud.
How did PromptCloud Help?
- PromptCloud ran slow crawls in sites to accumulate all the macro level data (name, owner, location, etc.)
- The crawls were targeted locally using geo-location tagging capabilities
- The extracted data was structured and furnished to be synchronously integrated with the mobile platform designed by the client
- The format and data schema were decided upon and record files were generated accordingly at pre-decided intervals of time
Benefits to the client
- Building a crawl and extraction process setup a continuous stream of data
- Helped aggregate content from many sites to enhance client site
- Zero data processing efforts at client’s end
- Scalable infrastructure reduced client’s costs
Thus, we gained one happy client who referred us in his network, landing us more projects of a similar nature.
