Making Automobile Spare Parts Data Transparent & Easily Accessible

Contact Sales


Any vehicle is an intricate combination of thousands of individual parts — big and small. Our client has a platform where manufacturers can see which part is being sold where, along with the prices and other important details. In that respect, the client is a world leader in maintaining an easily accessible database of automobile spare parts. The client uses Grepsr to source batteries data from vendors all over the world, and at a volume that is next to impossible when done in-house.
Making Automobile Spare Parts Data Transparent & Easily Accessible
Key points
    • Our client needs up-to-the-minute data to maintain a fresh spare parts database.
    • Grepsr provides batteries data from multiple global vendors, at a scale and frequency which can’t be replicated in-house.
    • It is now convenient for manufacturers and buyers from various geographies to make informed decisions.
    • They can see where spare parts are available, compare prices and features, alongside detailed information in our client’s platform.


It takes more than 5,000 individual components to build a car. 80% of these parts are supplied by multiple vendors.

As a trailblazer for digital change, our client has been supporting companies in the automotive, insurance and real estate industries since 1997 in digitalizing their processes, leveraging data treasures, and implementing digital business models. They have comprehensive market data and in-depth expert knowledge, and combine this expertise with cutting-edge technologies such as Artificial Intelligence and Robotic Process Automation to create intelligent automation solutions.

Our client has a database where customers are able to access parts data from multiple manufacturers around the world. Their goal is to make this data transparent and readily available.

Manually sourcing data of all components by visiting every supplier’s website individually is an impossible task.

This was one of the major headaches for our client.

Lead time improvement


Having sourced their spare parts data in-house for a number of years, our client turned to Grepsr when it was time to scale. Grepsr has been delivering the data from hundreds of vendor websites without any hassle, and at the highest quality standard every single time.

Using our data platform, the client has been able to automate routine extractions at their required frequencies, monitor the quality of each dataset, and integrate the data with their own filesystems seamlessly.

Our service has ensured their parts database is always up-to-date, customers have comprehensive information about all products, and everything is easily accessible via their platform.

They now serve 250+ customers in more than 80 countries from offices in Europe, North and Latin America and Asia-Pacific.

Solution Illustration

Similar challenges faced across the industry:

Lack of technical know-how to automate routine data extractions

Businesses need fresh data to gather the best insights. To that end, one or two data extractions a day does not suffice. They need a system that can easily schedule crawl runs at specific intervals, as well as on demand.

Lack of resources - time, money and manpower - for data sourcing at scale

Data extraction is extremely tedious and highly error-prone. Most businesses lack the infrastructure to perform high volumes of data sourcing, and at a quality that yields the best results.

Overcoming data source restrictions

Most websites place limits on how many requests can be made in a set time period, and regularly block bots from accessing their content.
