Prices Monitor system was developed in 2013 for one our client from Moscow. It was one from largest books vendor. System was developed for periodically monitoring of prices in main on-line shops which sell books. Using of this tool gives ability to set actual prices on production in automation mode.
Software should get prices on books from current list in several on-line shops of books. Input data inputs using Excel file with ISBNs of books (serial numbers). Results also saves as Excel file. Application processes 6 on-line shops and can be expanded by adding others processing units.
We use .Net C# to implement this solution. During software development was uses aproach which makes possible decrease time of processing of HTML pages. The main idea was in combine WebBrowser’s events and system times. This way eneble do not wait some system event to get needed data.
