Growing Popularity of Web Grabbers

By: William He

The name 'web grabber' stands for a now commonly known web data extraction tool whose purpose is to facilitate the process of data extraction and collection and thus to alleviate much of the effort and resources required for the daily operation of most businesses.

The need of website grabbers emerged as companies began to be more and more dependent on web-based information, such as contacts, exchange rates, price indexes, etc. As the amount of web info to be found and collected grew immensely, some firms were faced with the need of investing substantial amounts for hiring staff to take care of these activities. Doing the process manually was very time-consuming, and, needless to say, the lack of human errors was not guaranteed.

It is therefore not surprising that more and more businesses opt for website grabbers. Web data extraction technologies enable organizations to quickly and easily get the information they need. The solutions ensure optimized efficiency, improved quality, and maximum affordability.

As demand for webgrabbers grows, companies are beginning to offer more varied data extraction and collection solutions. For instance, Ficstar Software, which is one of the leaders on the web grabber development market, has recently developed a special Contacts Grabber to better satisfy the special needs of some of its customers.

Businesses often need contact information to build membership or informational sites, or to execute marketing or sales activities. Ficstar Web Grabber Contacts is a powerful, intuitive tool that enables customers to quickly and easily collect results from online business directories, member listings, and other web pages that contain important contact information. It allows the dynamic retrieval of vital data such as names, job titles, phone and fax numbers, mailing addresses, e-mail addresses, website URLs, and more, from virtually anywhere on the web.

This new powerful solution allows businesses to rapidly identify members of their target audience, and collect their contact information, gather contact details for use in promotional efforts or campaigns, locate professionals like lawyers, accountants, physicians, etc.

Web grabber solutions have managed to meet most of the data collection needs of today's companies. They certainly do have a future - and indeed a very bright one. They will probably expand and cover other business aspects to help meet the growing demand of companies, the rising dependency on web data, and awareness of the reliability of data extraction software solutions.
