Intelligent Catalog Importer & Manager is a technical but very powerful addon. You can find him many uses but most commonly it is used for importing supplier catalogs on Prestashop and the advanced migration of shop. The module runs over all pages of a website, extract information of products interpreting the source code of the page and injects the information in the store in accordance with the standard methods defined by PrestaShop. The results are clean, free of errors and allow a great time-saver when you start your shop .

Finally, the module allows you to use an artificial intelligence algorithm of very good reputation for the more subjective aspects. For example, when importing a catalog, the brand is "Adidas Rekin" on the provider catalog and you have as a supplier "Adidas". Or the category in the supplier catalog is Clothing > Men > T-shirt > colorful T-shirt and yours is Shirts an Tee-shirts > Tee-shirts. The AI algorithm can find the nearest correpondance in a really relevant way. On large volumes errors to correct may exist but the bulk of the work will be done by the algorithm.
On the technical side, this is how the module works

//expression pour rechercher l'information
regexNom = /h1>(.+)/
regexPrix = /div class="price">(.+)/
//recherche des informations sur le code
matchNom = ( code =~ regexNom )
matchPrix = ( code =~ regexPrix )
if( matchNom.find() && matchPrix.find() )
//récupération des informations
//ajout du produit
