Bridge Below: Providing a smart proxy solution to extract automotive web data
MAP monitoring for automotive industry
In today’s e-commerce world, one of the biggest challenges for manufacturers is MAP (Minimum Advertised Price) monitoring. It’s key for them to make sure their distributors are advertising their products in line with the manufacturer’s pricing policy. Our Zyte Smart Proxy Manager customer, Bridge Below, helps manufacturers and brands in the automotive industry to stay on top of their pricing game, by providing a platform to monitor and analyze MAP violations and contact sellers.
Without Zyte Smart Proxy Manager our business is not successful.
Co-Founder of Bridge Below
Bridge Below, a company based in the US, provides market-leading aftermarket data solutions, for the automotive industry. With their advanced software tools and solutions, they provide comprehensive MAP monitoring services, generating detailed reports in minutes. These reports offer brands an affordable and manageable solution to track pricing violations and ensure compliance.
Bridge Below’s goal is to provide its customers with timely and high-quality automotive data from the web. Bridge Below’s success depends on being able to collect web data and transform it into meaningful information for its customers. Having a MAP monitoring solution in place is crucial for manufacturers and brands because otherwise, they would not be able to find price violations, which could hurt their business. Bridge Below plays a central role in delivering price violation reports. Customers can get instant alerts through its platform and can quickly contact the seller.
Bridge Below extracts a lot of data from the web regularly and they had a lot of struggles before starting to use Zyte Smart Proxy Manager. Some websites may block you if you scrape a high volume of data which means you won’t be able to get public data from that website anymore. If a company’s success directly depends on web-scraped data, this problem becomes very important to solve.
For Bridge Below, the problem was two-fold: they needed to scrape a popular e-commerce website and also scrape a high volume of data regularly. These two web data extraction tasks are impossible without a reliable web scraping proxy solution.
Bridge Below struggled to find an in-house solution to overcome the proxy rotating challenges. Zyte Smart Proxy Manager was a clear choice for Bridge Below as it took the manual task of managing proxies so you don’t have to deal with anything relating to proxies - you can focus on successful requests. It just works. Also, their developers were already familiar with Scrapy, as a framework for their web scraping tech stack, so Zyte's web scraping expertise was clear.
