(PRWEB) November 9, 2004
Web automation specialist Altercept unveiled today version 3.1 of The Easy Bee, a software product for Windows that periodically downloads and saves web content extracted from virtually any web site, even from password-protected sites.
This new release now offers the ability to save the extracted content on disk for later data analysis. The user can choose to save it in either HTML or text format and to append or overwrite the destination file each time a web agent comes back. Appending to the same file is the first step to keeping track of web data and, for example, loading and analyzing their trend in Excel.
The product lets the user quickly and easily record web browsing sequences. The Easy Bee then replays them periodically and silently. Sequences --web agents-- can include user actions such as form filling and button clicking, thus allowing password-protected pages to be reached.
The product also allows the user to specify an area to extract from the target web page such as a table or a single line. Advertisements and menus don't pollute the extracted content.
The Easy Bee is designed for Windows NT, 2000, XP and 2003. It requires Internet Explorer 5.5 or higher.
The Easy Bee v 3.1 costs $129.95 (US) or $9 per month and may be ordered online from http://www.TheEasyBee.com. Volume pricing and site licenses are available.
Altercept designs interface software for coupling Windows-based applications to the Web. Altercept focuses on enterprise solutions dedicated to reducing hours of repetitive web browsing to minutes. http://www.Altercept.com.
