http://www.contentgrabber.com/

Web-scraping is the process of extracting data from websites and storing that data in a structured, easy-to-use format. The value of a web-scraping tool like Content Grabber is that you can easily specify and collect large amounts of source data that may be very dynamic (data that changes very frequently).

Usually, data available on the Internet has little or no structure and is only viewable with a web browser. Elements such as text, images, video, and sound are built into a web page so that they are presentable in a web browser. It can be very tedious to manually capture and separate this data, and can require many hours of effort to complete. With Content Grabber, you can automate this processand capture website data in a fraction of the time that it would take using other methods.

Web-scraping software interacts with websites in the same way as you do when using your web browser. However, in addition to displaying the data in a browser on your screen, web-scraping software saves the data from the web page to a local file or database

https://a9t9.com/kantu

Kantu is the most popular open-source web macro recorder. If there’s an activity you have to do repeatedly, just create a web macro for it. The next time you need to do it, the entire macro will run at the click of a button and do the work for you.

Kantu’s main focus is ease of use, good recording and reliable playback for all kinds of browser automation projects. It is a record & replay tool for automated testing and a “swiss army knife” for general web automation, automating file uploads and autofill form filling.

The new versions of Kantu for Chrome and Kantu for Firefox bring a major update – they can now run automated visual UI tests inside the web browser, powered by WebAssembly. This makes Kantu one of the first (or even the first?) browser extension that uses WebAssembly.

Robotic Process Automation Software.
Automate rule based business processes.
Train and design robots that drive the UI like a human.

Robotic Process Automation is an automation performed by a computer (software robot) to drive existing application software in the same way a user does.

UiPath enables business analysts to automate rule based business processes, train and design robots that drive the UI like a human.

A free, fully-featured, and extensible tool for automating any web or desktop application. UiPath Studio Community is free for individual developers, small professional teams, education and training purposes UiPath enables organizations to configure software robots that automate manual, repetitive rules-based tasks at a fraction of the cost of their human equivalent, and integrate without disruption the legacy system.

Desktop Automation

UiPath Studio introduces a visual, declarative way of describing how to automate a process, and you can use it in the same way you use a Visio diagram. When working with the presentation layer of other apps, you simply indicate on the screen what operation you need to perform. UiPath understands the UI at the logical control level and does not rely on the position of elements on screen. This makes automation much more reliable and independent of screen-size and resolution.

Most advanced Screen Scraping Technology

UiPath has pioneered the screen scraping of running desktop apps with 100% accuracy in under 16 milliseconds. Prior to UiPath, screen scraping had a low accuracy rate and was slow and fragile.
UiPath features an innovative technique for extracting text from running apps, even if they are hidden or covered by another app.
Web scraping is a premier feature of the screen-scraping landscape, as there are dedicated methods for extracting pattern-based data that span multiple web pages.

USE CASES

Some examples how this can be utilized:

– Scrape eCommerce sites that sell your products, to check for price violations and review data.

– Build a broad crawler covering thousands of sites to automatically discover contact and profiles information for a specific industry.

– Parse all shop locations for a number of big brands to provide a locator for users looking for a specific type of shop.

– Build a database of interesting candidates to hire, by matching various sources of internet profiles with a series of filters which you or the HR team are interested in. I know people building boutique businesses on basic web scraping… like someone who uses our platform to offer a service that allows people to monitor Amazon Kindle Books pricing, and get alerted when the price drops or the book goes on sale. In effect, bringing Amazon’s data “back to the people” to allow them to make better choices.
