Ecommerce scraping

The dropshipping company needed a way to automatically monitor prices and stock availability for over 100,000 products from over 1,500 stores. We created a system using custom scripts and a web interface that could check 60 million pages daily. This led to a reduction in manual work and errors, and improvements in customer experience and a $50-70k increase in monthly profits.
