Screen Scraping Software that works everywhere
Screen scraping is a very important technique in data migration and integration scenarios, and has enabled modern apps to talk with legacy apps that don’t offer an API. It is the complement to the data entry side of automation.
There are so many technologies available to create user interfaces on Windows desktop. From the old DOS console apps, the Win32 and FoxPro apps of the 90s, Java and .Net Winforms apps of early 2000 to modern WPF apps today. Add in the mix the web apps, all the different browsers - IE, FireFox and Chrome, Flash and Silverlight web technologies. Do not forget the enterprise apps, the likes of SAP, Siebel, PeopleSoft. And not the least the good old mainframe with the green screen and terminal emulators. Did I mention that all these apps can be published via Citrix/VDI?
UiPath is providing the first 100% accurate, extremely fast screen scraping tool.

And, of course, the Screen Scraper Wizard and the Web Scraping Wizard will allow you to get the data out of any application in minutes.
How it works?
UiPath has pioneered the screen scraping of running desktop apps with 100% accuracy in under 16 milliseconds. Prior to UiPath, screen scraping was a synonym for slow, fragile, inaccurate OCR on the display, and had a low rate of accuracy.
UiPath features an innovative technique for extracting text from running apps, even if they are hidden or covered by another app.
Web scraping is a premier citizen of the screen-scraping landscape, with dedicated methods for extracting pattern-based data that span multiple web pages.
Where is it used?
Screen scraping comes to the rescue in many business scenarios. It happens just too often that the only way to retrieve your data is by scraping the UI of another app. Even if you have access to the database, it is sometimes just more convenient and less error-prone to go directly through the user interface.
Since 2004, UiPath has been used by more than 1000 companies for document management and imaging, enterprise application integration, content migration, desktop analytics, business IT process automation, application integration, legacy modernization solutions, mobile enablement of desktop apps, and medical record scraping.

Bring credibility back to screen scraping
Screen scraping is in our genes, and we are proud to have created the world’s best screen-scraping library.
