Steps of providing
data scraping services

Consultation icon

Step 1 of 5

Free consultation

It's a good time to get info about each other, share values and discuss your project in detail. We will advise you on a solution and try to help to understand if we are a perfect match for you.
Analysis icon

Step 2 of 5

Discovering and feasibility analysis

One of our core values is flexibility, hence we work with either one page high level requirements or with a full pack of tech docs.  At this stage, we need to ensure that we understand the full scope of the project. Receive from you or perform a set of interviews and prepare the following documents: list of features with detailed description and acceptance criteria; list of fields that need to be scraped, solution architecture. Ultimately we make a project plan which we strictly follow. We are a result-oriented company, and that is one of our core values as well.
Solutions icon

Step 3 of 5

Solution development

At this stage, we develop the scraping engine core logic. We run multiple tests to ensure that the solution is working properly. We map the fields and run the scraping. While scraping, we keep the full raw data so the final model can be enlarged easily. Ultimately we store data in any database and run quality assurance tests.

Step 4 of 5

Data delivery

After quality assurance tests are completed, we deliver data and solutions to the client. Though we have over 15 years of expertise in data engineering, we expect client’s participation in the project.

One of our core values is flexibility, hence we work with either one page high level requirements or with a full pack of tech docs.  

In Data Science, there are numerous models and approaches, so at this stage we perform a set of interviews in order to define project objectives. We elaborate and discuss a set of hypotheses and assumptions. We create solution architecture, a project plan, and a list of insights or features that we have to achieve.
Solutions icon

Step 3 of 5

Solution development

The work starts with data gathering, data cleaning and analysis. Feature engineering helps to determine your target variable and build several models for the initial review. Further modeling requires validating results and selecting models for the further development. Ultimately, we interpret the results. Nevertheless, data modeling is about a process that requires lots of back and forth iterations. We are result focused, as it’s one of our core values as well.
Data delivery icon

Step 4 of 5

Data Science solutions can be a list of insights or a variety of different models that consume data and return results. Though we have over 15 years of expertise in data engineering, we expect client’s participation in the project.  While modeling, we provide midterm results so you can always see where we are and provide us with feedback. By the way, a high-level of communication is also our core value.

Success stories

Check out a few case studies that show why DATAFOREST will meet your business needs.

Demand forecasting

We built a sales forecasting system and optimized the volume of goods in the warehouse and the range of goods in different locations, considering each outlet's specifics. We set up a system that has processed more than 8 TB of sales data. These have helped the retail business increase revenue, improve logistics planning, and achieve other business goals.

I think what is really special about the DATAFOREST service is its flexibility, openness, and level of quality and expertise.

Stock relocation solution

The client was faced with the challenge of creating an optimal assortment list for more than 2,000 drugstores located in 30 different regions. They turned to us for a solution. We used a mathematical model and AI algorithms that considered location, housing density and proximity to key locations to determine an optimal assortment list for each store. By integrating with POS terminals, we were able to improve sales and help the client to streamline its product offerings.

E-commerce 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.

Entity Recognition

The online marketplace for cars wanted to improve search for users by adding full-text and voice search, as well as advanced search with specific options. We built a system application using Machine Learning and NLP methods to process text queries, and the Google Cloud Speech API to process audio queries. This helped greatly improve the user experience by providing a more intuitive and efficient search option for them.
