Our use of data scraping from websites
Currently we are employing data scraping from website stratagies by the use of website scraper software to create databases of our competitor's online catalogs. With website data scraping we can maintain a comprehensive and continuously updated database of our competitor's products and prices by universal manufacturer item numbers. It is easy to use, fully programmable and can run at set times and intervals. We set it to run once a week and our sales manager reviews the data from each of our competitors and adjusts our pricing so we stay extremely competitive. Technology is always moving forward and website scrapers help us immensely in both the maintenance our market dominance and competitive edge.
