Data Extraction for Fortune 500 Company

Dana Incorporated is a Fortune 500 company that supplies integrated drivetrain and propulsion systems. In 2020, the company approached us with a challenge: they wanted to improve their strategic decision-making processes by obtaining detailed reports that analyze millions of different data pieces. Our team rose to the challenge and created a custom web scraping solution that helped Dana achieve their goals.

Pricing insights

Our web scraping solution helped Dana discover the average price of specific product types among their competitors.

Product intelligence

Dana learned that their competitors offer a new features in some of their products that are similar to one of their own models.

Market overview

Our solution helped Dana understand a scale of rising demand for electric cars in the global market.

How the solution works?

Advanced & automated data mining tool

Our solution involved building 25 custom web scrapers for competitor websites and gathering around 12 million unique product data pieces.

We also created an ETL script that filled Dana's internal databases with standardized, aggregated, and loaded data into cloud databases. The gathered data helped Dana gain competitive insights into the automotive market and make informed decisions.

Dana's project presented several challenges that we had to overcome. Firstly, we had to scrape competitor websites that had highly complex forms with around 1000 different permutations of options chosen.

Secondly, to prevent access restrictions, we rotated our IP and used proxies while limiting the speed of each scraper to follow the rules of robots.txt.

Finally, we had to run ten machines asynchronously and on each machine multiple scrapers, which resulted in ~250 crawlers running simultaneously.

Fresh data on demand

Our fully automated pipeline can be run whenever our clients need the newest information and reports.
