you need to build a program that would anonymously scrape the posted medication/type prices off the websites I will provide for you.
That program that will go to the websites and get the prices of all the medications/types on the website and populate the database with those 5 websites medicine names and prices.
Every time the job runs you will create another row of data for each website with the date and the medicine type and prices for each website. This will be stored in a database you will create.
Then you will go to our website at [url removed, login to view] (to be provided upon bid)which already has a database of medicine/type prices and compare all 5 website medicine/type prices to the [url removed, login to view] website. It is possible that your compare of medicine/type would be a partial matching routine. Calclulate the price differences found for that day and list the differences by website name and record the date the compare was done.
I need this to be a front end that runs on an admin area of a current domain we are using. The front end should let us choose dates available to compare and show the price comparison between our website and the 5 other websites. We should also have the ability to run the job whenever we need to.
We will also need to be able to download the page displayed with differences as a csv file.
I will provide real websites to compare when bid is awarded.
