PromptCloud offers fully customizable web data extraction solution that’s scalable enough to cater to the data requirements of large enterprises. Quality and consistency are of prime importance as far as web crawling is concerned. Although there are DIY tools and the option of scraping via in-house resources, there are many key differentiators that set us apart in the big data space. Here are some:
Fully customizable: Not every website is made alike and there’s just no one size fits all tool to crawl websites. This is why we have built an infrastructure that is flexible and customizable according to our clients’ varied requirements. This level of customization makes it possible to crawl sites that use complex and dynamic coding practices.
Multiple data delivery options: We understand that the consumption of data is done differently across organizations. This is why we deliver the data in multiple popular formats like JSON, CSV and XML via REST API The data can also be delivered to Dropbox, Box, Amazon S3 or your own FTP server. With such a host of delivery options to choose from, consuming the data should be a cakewalk.
Fully managed solution: The biggest challenge with web crawling is the maintenance of the crawler setup. Since websites keep getting updated on a constant basis, there should be a prompt monitoring system in place to look out for the site changes that can affect the data retrieval. We handle this with an automated monitoring system that sends out alerts upon detection of site changes. The crawler setup is promptly modified to ensure continued functioning of the extraction task. Since we take end-to-end responsibility of the web crawling process, you get the data you need without any interruptions.
High quality structured data: The quality of the delivered data should be one of the biggest priorities when it comes to web data extraction. This is because the data quality can make or break your data project. At PromptCloud, we process the data using refining mechanisms like deduplication, noise cleansing and structuring. The output is clean, structured data of top notch quality.
