Automated data extraction is becoming increasingly popular and a managed web scraping service can be the most suitable option to help you meet your large-scale data needs completely. PromptCloud is a pioneer in data extraction solutions and has all the capabilities to get you data from any website on a recurring basis, irrespective of your industry vertical or data use case.
The data you can scrape from the web is not limited in any way when you choose to avail our dedicated web scraping service as long as the website doesn’t legally disallow web scraping. We ensure that there isn’t any legal blocks before starting with every web scraping project.
How our web scraping service works
PromptCloud works on a DaaS model, where we take care of all the aspects of web scraping once we receive the requirements from your end. Clean and structured data will be delivered to you while we handle all the complexities involved in scraping.
Requirement gathering is the only part where you as a client has to be involved and all you need to do is to tell us about the sites you need data from, data fields to be extracted and the frequency of scraping.
As soon as we receive your requirements, we establish the feasibility of the project – to ensure the website legally allows web scraping. If all is good, you can kickstart the web scraping project by making the payment.
We will then go ahead and set up the web scraping system and start delivering the data in the format, frequency and delivery method you’ve opted for. The data formats that we support are JSON, XML and CSV and we deliver the data via FTP, Amazon S3, Dropbox, REST API and more. As all the data that we deliver go through various stages of cleansing and structuring processes, you would get clean and ready-to-use data that is analysis-ready.
