Automate your administration work
In certain industries, you might need to pull data from websites, portals & databases into your software. Often, this is done manually, but slowly moving to automation is the going trend.
Now, why would you automate scraping of data from a website? Easy, you save staff labour, so you can put them to work on other projects. Data entry is a job of the past, cross train your staff now, build in a scraper & then cut off this job role all together.

Some statistics on custom web scrapers
The average cost of developing software is ~$30,000, which is a large cost to some businesses. Now, we have a client who required up to 10 temporary admin staff for 2 – 4 weeks, 3 – 4 times a year.
We created a web scraping software that performed the work of these temporary admin staff within seconds. As such, we saved the client an estimated $450,000+ each year for ~$20,000. So, when you look at those numbers, it’s not that large of an expense.
