Service details

Web crawling-powered data extraction

Web crawling

Standard web crawling necessitates the design and implementation of site-specific crawlers, a time-consuming and costly process. Datist boasts a crawling engine that generalizes across sites, with a crawling record of 1 billion web pages, removing the need for one-off bots and enabling us to start collecting data from the get-go.

Data refinement


In its raw form, web-extracted data will usually include reduncancies, typographical discrepancies and other elements that adversely affect analysis and integration.
Datist takes advantage of tools such as a data processing engine capable of over 100 different operations and human-based visual examination to transform the data into usable information in record-short time.

Data integration and analysis support

Data visualization/utilization

Collected data yields value only when it is optimally utilized and integrated according to your needs. Datist enables your organization to fully realize the value of extracted data by seamlessly integrating it with your organization's system structure.
Datist has your back for every step of the integration process; from the aggregration, analysis and visualization of new data, to merging it with and cleaning up your existing records.

Worried about system management? We've got your back

System management

Whether it is expanding or renewing the scope of your data collection sources or modifying the system specifications, operating a data processing system costs both time and money.
At Datist, we are not content to design new solutions, we also take care of the management, ensuring that you can focus on maximizing the value of your data.

3 Reasons why our customers love us

Hands-off web crawling powered by machine learning

With a track record of 1 billion web pages to its name, our crawling engine is a well-tested data extractor.

Using analysis powered by machine learning and natural language processing, our engine automatically adapts its data collection to the structure of each individual site, without any additional coding, providing you with the data you need at minimal cost.

Combining machine and man for high-precision data refinement

While machine learning and natural language processing are powerful tools for normalizing and cleansing data at a low cost, they alone do not provide the high quality that you need.

Datist uses human examiners at the final stage of the data refinement process to ensure maximum quality and accuracy.
