Data/Screen Scraping

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

I am wondering if there is a way to do data/screen scraping more effectively or even just automate some of processes.

We currently are outsourcing this by having a bunch of people troll through certain websites to obtain prices for price comparision.. and i believe they use chrome scraper extension to get the data and put it into an excel spreadsheet.

Just wondering if there is any awesome autoit script that someone has created or if i should look into creating one and how hard would that be? 

Has anyone done anything like this before and could help point me in the right direction?

Creating something yourself is never a bad idea. You'll gain loads of experience and information from the process.

As far as I know, I have no clue if anyone has already done this. Is 'chrome screen scaper' not good enough, or are you just curious? :)
