Fetch Company Website URL based on company name

Scenario:

  • I'm importing Company Master Data (CMD) through a Data Flow into a PowerApps Environment (into Account Table)
  • appr. 5000 records, worldwide (+-40% EU accounts, 30% Americas, 30% Asia)
  • In the CMD, the company website URL is not captured; off course, Company Name is.
  • however, it is for the users interesting to be able to quickly visit the website
  • hence, I want to try to automate as much as possible the input of company website URL's

Is there a way in Power Automate, based on the company name, to

  • search the internet
  • and pick the most relevant hit and save its URL?

I know there will most probably be a lot of false hits, but is I'd manage to already capture 50% it would be a start.

 

First thoughts:

  • I will not include this in the recurring dataflow, but trigger it only on 'Create'. That way, if a users corrects the company website, it will not be overridden
  • possibility to skip sponsored results?
  • do a fuzzy search on the URL (to check for company name)?

 

So, any suggestions or experiences with that?

Thanks in advance for the input!

There is no direct way to achieve what you are trying to do.

 

Why can't you create an excel with company name and correct url, and then use power automate to read excel data, query and update the record wherever you want to.

 

I think this is the only way to do this.
