Build a web crawler for pricing monitoring of competition

Sony needed a team to build a web crawler that would be able to monitor the pricing of Sony's competitors. They needed it done as soon as possible in order to protect against lost sales. The web crawler was needed to scan other ecommerce website's prices and compare them to Sony's SKUs. It crawled and tracked competitors' prices, and in the event of price changes of a competitor, it would send a respective alert to the internal medium at Sony.

Our process

We identified that Sony needed a team who was skilled in Python crawlers

Starkflow set out to find a team for Sony who was skilled in Python and had an experience of building custom reporting tools. Once Starkflow filtered the respective candidates with prior experience and Sony was pleased with the hires they began focusing on the problem of developing the configurable web crawler. The team built such a software that Amazon and Flipkart were not able to detect that the crawler was pulling data on a daily basis from their websites.
