How does it work? Our web scraping software simply replicates what you can do with a web browser, such as clicking links, logging into websites, submitting forms, and downloading files. The advantage a data scraping tool has is that it can do all of these things significantly faster than a human. Once programmed, a web scraper can extract data from a website, then save that data into a database, spreadsheet, or any other format you might need.
Once our screen scraping software downloads data it can save it in just about any format you’d like. The simplest example is a CSV file, which can be opened in a spreadsheet program such as Excel. Other common formats include XML, JSON, or a database. Unlike many other screen scraping tools, ours can also integrate easily with other systems via APIs or direct database connections.
Our screen-scraping tools can scale massively on the cloud. Our website scraper software is multithreaded, and can also be distributed across many machines. This means it can data scrape many websites all at the same time.
It’s possible that you have an existing software application you’d like our data mining tool to integrate with. This might be a database, CMS, or ecommerce site. Our web scraping software has the ability to insert data directly into another system. We can also go the other direction—you can invoke our website scraper software from your application, and it will send the data to you.
You can use our website scraper software with virtually any other programming language, such as .NET, Java, Ruby, Python, or PHP. Because our software is written in Java, it will also run on most modern operating systems (e.g., Windows, Linux, Mac OS X).
