Crawling as a service:
We provide a web crawling service for clients to extract data that they need from publicly available websites. The data may include listings, pricing, categories, reviews, etc.
Pricing differs based on the customised plans for each project
Crawling and Data aggregation platforms:
At Soft Surge, we have built live data aggregation platforms, including our project Estate Searcher. This platform uses our engine and website template to gather data from various Real Estate Agents. The collected data is then structured and presented on the search engine. With listings currently at over 80.000, the site is expanding quickly.
We are proud to say that this project has won an award from the IDEA innovation centre.
We aim to use the engine and template to create new platforms for aggregating and indexing data. The ultimate goal is for users to find what they are looking for on one platform— eliminating the need to search on many websites.
Additionally, each platform can generate revenue using a model that suits its needs (e.g., affiliate revenue, advertising revenue, etc.).
The web crawling process follows three main steps; Crawling, Scraping, and Data Structuring. Essentially, each step plays a part in searching for, extracting, and preparing needed data. Read more about the process here.
The crawled data will be structured into any custom format requested by each client.
