We provide services related to data aggregation, web crawling, price monitoring and indexing platforms.
Data Aggregation Challenge
Data Aggregation remains a big challenge for many companies when collecting data from the web. Usually, 3rd party integrations fulfill this need. However, they incur significant development costs, manual data input, and demand valuable working hours. This task has become more complex by a lack of knowledge.
Soft Surge Solution
We have developed a solution to quickly and cost-efficiently offer data retrieving, aggregation and optimisation. Our in-house built engine (datasearch.tech) uses web-crawling to search for wanted data on the web. Moreover, extracting it and giving it to clients in a custom format.
After a brief conversation between the founders regarding the availability of online real estate listings and which websites one should visit to view all available listings, the idea for a data aggregation engine was born.
Work commenced immediately on our crawling/scraping engine and our indexing platform, with the MVP of Estate Searcher ready by the end of the year.
A Bright Future
With an MVP ready and the company officially incorporated, Soft Surge applied to join the 2020 Cycle of IDEA Innovation Center. The company was selected and graduated the cycle successfully.
The Program allowed the founders to prepare themselves for potential investors and pivot the initial business model to a price-monitoring SaaS solution utilizing the crawling/scraping engine whilst trying to find commercial partners for the already operating Estate Searcher.
Development, Innovation & Investment
With a clear roadmap and vision regarding the products and services, development commenced on the existing Estate Searcher MVP and the brand new Datasearch platform. By the end of the year, both platforms had their first paying clients.
The development of the platform and the initial traction in terms of clients enabled the founders of the company to pitch the idea to various prominent entrepreneurs and companies to secure investment and business guidance. A list of some of the most influential early investors can be found at the end of this page.
In the meantime, Soft Surge was awarded the Certificate of Innovative Small and Medium-Sized Enterprise by the Deputy Ministry of Research, Innovation, and Digital Policy.
Three years later
Three years into the project, the team has now grown to five full-time and two part-time employees, and the clientele includes prominent local companies like Stephanis and Superhome Center.
High Hopes and Expectations
2023 is a year for high hopes and expectations as we set the bar high with our company aiming to reach a wider international clientele and become a household name in the data aggregation industry.
