Intelligo's goals

Intelligo is set out to create a better background intelligence solution by leveraging the power of AI and Big Data. The goal is to deliver the most comprehensive and accurate background checks as a foundation for profound business decisions. 

Challenges

While some services only scrape the surface of available information, Intelligo’s AI-powered information analysis brings more data in less time. Among many different sources the company leverages, one crucial part of the background checks are news and articles data.

“A background check is only as good as the sources it covers”, says Nadav Shkoori, Backend Developer at Intelligo. “We collect data from hundreds of thousands of websites. The data we collect is unstructured and we basically have URLs that we need to turn into data, so we can integrate it into our system, map it to our schemas and analyze it with our AI. This gets really time consuming.”

Getting web data at scale is a challenge for two reasons:

1. Getting access to the websites on a large scale without getting blocked and maintain it to be stable.
2. Integrating data that is unstructured and extract it into a structured schema.

Having their own skilled team of developers, Intelligo was looking for a solution that takes away part of their hassle and reduces the internal development time.

Solution

The Intelligo team has been working with Zyte already for a couple of years, notes Nadav Shkoori. “We have been using Scrapy since 2018 and it helps us a lot to build our own scrapers.”

To tackle the challenges of getting relevant news data on a large scale quickly and reliably, Intelligo has been using the Automatic Extraction API since December 2019. “We have compared it with some of the possible competitors and found it to be extracting data from websites others couldn’t, and in some cases extracting certain types of data such as subtitles and filing dates better than the other services we checked”, explains Idan Gera, VP Product at Intelligo.

Automatic Extraction helps to instantly access web data with the patented AI-powered extraction API. Onboarding new resources has never been easier and the data comes back quickly and in a structured format. It also takes away the hassle of developing and maintaining spiders.

The product keeps its promise of reducing development overhead, confirms Nadav Shkoori. “Zyte’s Automatic Extraction API saves us a lot of time to get the most relevant news data as it’s easy to use and the data output is nicely structured which makes it easier for us to analyze the data.”
