Connotate Web Scraping for Data Monitoring, Extraction & Collection

Product Capabilities

Web Agents extract, collect, and filter data better than basic web scrapers

Connotate’s technology uses machine learning to automatically generate highly efficient code and supporting context, collectively referred to as a Web Agent or just Agent.

Agents navigate websites to find the precise information that you’re looking for – ignoring ads and other extraneous website content – turning unstructured Web pages into machine-readable data to support business processes.

Connotate’s Web data extraction and collection technology is superior to Web scrapers and Web scraping scripts because we recognized that change is a fundamental aspect of the Web – and we’ve built the Connotate solution for maximum resiliency, because websites change in format all the time.

Websites also post new content constantly. Our data extraction and collection solution is optimized to not only accurately detect Web content changes but also deliver just the precise changed content to achieve tremendous efficiency gains. We filter out the noise and remove duplicate data to make workflows more efficient and effective.
