2019 has been a hell of a year for data technologies around the world. This year has further strengthened the fact that data is now an unmatchable need of all successful businesses and industries.
PromptCloud is proud to be continuously making notable differences in the world of web data crawling. We strive to democratize web data access and our data warriors are always up for challenges to solve the needs of our customers. For us, delivering quality is an irreplaceable habit.
A few years back, everyone was concerned about the legal issues surrounding web scraping and it was thought to create major roadblocks in the data ecosystem in the future. But this year’s legal cases like hiQ vs LinkedIn, where the judgment was in favor of democratization of data that certainly is a silver lining.
Rapid advancement in data science, artificial intelligence, data analytics, machine learning, competitor analysis, sentiment analysis, data-driven marketing, and other verticals are creating an everlasting wave of data.
We cater to personalized web scraping and data extraction needs of many companies and organizations of various sizes and hierarchy (from one-person startups to Fortune 10 enterprises and Universities). Here we would like to list out some big names that chose us as their trusted data partner this year-
Royal Dutch Shell
This year brought us a steeper revenue growth. Our gross revenue saw twice the growth from the previous year. We also doubled up our client base this year with many notable companies making us a part of their success. Our existing accounts also expanded tremendously with the higher than ever demand of data. We are more than ready to grow much more this year while maintaining excellence in our product and services.
One of the perks this year was moving to a whole new, amazingly cool and spacious office space that matches perfectly with the energy and enthusiasm of our data wizards!
Here is a quick picture tour of our new office.
At PromptCloud, we believe that learning never stops and we are always eager to work with diligent, honest, curious, innovative and motivated people. With 26 new recruitments this year ranging from Marketing, Sales, Data Engineers, Tech Leads, Human Resource, we feel stronger than ever to take on each and every challenge together and more.
Independence of thoughts, exchange of ideas and nurturing these ideas are the core values of our team.
We also believe in having a great time together apart from business as usual. The team that plays together, stays together.
We understand well that perfection is a continuous process. And hence, improving our solutions is always one of our top priorities. This year too we enhanced our solutions to give the best experience to our customers. Some of the notable improvements are the following:
Focusing on quality and customer satisfaction, major upgrades were done for JobsPikr platform this year for the ease of usage. Download Scheduler was added to schedule the downloads for a saved query. We added an HTML description of the job listings so that additional formatting can be avoided when importing the job listing to the job board. We are committed to delivering the exact job listings based on your requirements.
We believe in the democratization of data and appreciate the opportunities that the data community has opened for us. Hence, giving back is only natural. We shared several useful reports such as World Happiness Report 2019, where the data had been released by SDSN and extracted by PromptCloud‘s custom web crawling solution. We believe in sharing assets to enable growth.
DataStock provides datasets that were generated from our custom crawling service. We have a free category where we keep adding datasets for public use. These datasets are instantly downloadable. It has been well-accepted in the ML community and business analytics domain who use these for training algorithms and finding trends from historical data. We strive to provide transparency, trust, and contribution to the data community.
Apart from this, we also add data sets on communities such as Data.world, Kaggle and Zenodo to help researchers.
With countless websites to crawl, numerous scraping challenges to take, innovations to introduce, endless enhancements, upgrades to make and solving for our clients, we are more than ready to do 2020 right!
Wishing a very Happy New Year to everyone!
