At Proximy, we do not believe in simply offering our clients a single solution to a single problem. As a service built from the ground up by proxy users, we are intimately aware of the vast challenges that consumers of proxy API’s face on a daily basis. From server reliability to bandwidth restrictions, we are aware of the entire range of challenges that exist in the market, and have chosen to adopt a comprehensive strategy to create and deliver services to our customers that are able to solve all of the obstacles they face on a daily basis in the proxy space.
A focal point of our current service offering is the inclusion of web scraping capabilities within our proxy services. Web scraping is an undeniably powerful tool used by the world's most competitive and successful web based organizations, and has historically not been made available to the larger mass public due to cost prohibitive pricing models.
For those that may not yet know much about what web scraping is, and the power that it has, allow us to take some time to expand upon the concept. At its most basic level, web scraping is the act of digitally “scraping” across a single website, or multiple websites, in the pursuit of data extraction. Once extracted, the data is collected and stored in a central database for retrieval and analysis at some point in the future. To relate this process to a real world application, web scraping is often used to discover and collect names, telephone numbers, URL’s, or company names, for mass marketing efforts by large corporations.
The world of data mining and web indexing has grown exponentially over the last decade, and countless entities have gained unparalleled competitive advantages. By leveraging the power of web scraping, companies are able to monitor price changes of products and services offered by their competitors in real time, and adjust their price offerings accordingly to ensure a constant pricing advantage. Weather tracking, real estate market fluctuations, and consumer review behaviours have all become web environments where web scraping has been used in order to gain vital insights and competitive knowledge.
Our platform elegantly and efficiently facilitates a reliable network within which numerous methods of web scraping are able to be utilized. Our clients have been able to leverage our web scraping capabilities to build entire ecommerce platforms, improve click through rates, improve the performance of their affiliate marketing efforts, and collect invaluable data for use in long term business strategy planning for themselves and their clients. It goes without saying that Proximy’s web scraping capabilities have proven themselves to be an invaluable added resource to the comprehensive needs of our customers.
With the dynamic nature of Proximy’s server networks, a reliable hardware infrastructure, implementation of maximum security measures, and anonymous web scraping abilities, our services are poised to facilitate unbridled economic growth for our current and future clients.
