    Yes! Our web crawlers can scrape images in the form of either URLs or files. Scraping as files requires extra effort and, as a result, will incur an additional charge. The image files will be zipped and emailed/synced with the rest of your data.

    How does Grepsr ensure quality data?

    We’ve built several quality controls – both platform-based and using humans in the loop — to meet quality standards.

    Platform-based controls

    • Notification triggers in the crawler that executes during run-time to identify chokes, failures during crawler execution. System monitors to arrest system-wide errors
    • Define data schema to set acceptable formats. Anomaly detection using historical data
    • Quality and operational dashboards to monitor project health. Custom reporting for key accounts to analyze key metrics

    Quality experts

    • Validate initial setup with customer consultation to ensure quality compliance
    • Manually QA a randomized sample set per SLA terms
    • Proactive communication and resolution (<24 hour unless wholesale changes on source)

    Why do I suddenly see no data even though the crawl has already completed?

    A crawler may not return any data either due to 1) technical failures on our end, 2) roadblocks encountered in transit such as captcha, IP bans, and 3) due to changes in the source system.

    Our advanced data infrastructure allows work around complex security controls. Our technology platform has system and data quality monitoring capabilities built in to proactively handle outages, failures and data quality issues.

    Can I schedule crawlers to automate data collection? Or run them manually when needed?

    Absolutely! You can run manually crawlers on an ad-hoc basis or create recurring schedules to automate your crawl runs. Scheduled runs work like clockwork simplifying your data acquisition workflow.

    Read more about scheduling crawlers in our platform documentation here.

    How will I receive my data once it’s scraped?

    For large scale data collection, we automatically deliver the output to your preferred cloud storage location. We support Amazon S3, Google Cloud, Azure Cloud, Dropbox, Box, FTP and more. You must authorize the respective filesystem before we can store the output.

    Output can also be manually exported from the platform. Learn more about how you can integrate with Grepsr in our platform documentation here.

    What file formats is the data available in?

    We support common formats such as CSV, XLSX, JSON, XML and YAML. Contact us if you need a custom format that is not supported out-of-the-box.

    Can I add my colleagues to work on my data projects?

    Yes! Grepsr’s data management platform makes it super easy for remote teams to collaborate on their data projects. You can also manage the access levels of your colleagues so you always have control over who has visibility and into what.

    Read more about collaboration in our platform documentation here.
