Pulling data from website


I'm fairly new to Filemaker (using FM 13) and trying to build a solution that'll compare what my store has in stock, with what our website says we have in stock. Everyday we do a physical count (inventory) on around 100 items and we need to compare that with what the website says we have. My solution has a field for what the website says (for each item). I found a plugin that will import the website but was told by them that I'll need to "parse out the relevant info" (the quantity of the product) and put that in the correct FileMaker field. The command they are using is: 

TURL_Get( "-unused" ; <the URL of the web page here>)

Sounds simple, but I have no clue how to do this. Can any of you FileMaker experts walk me through the steps to do these two things? Would sincerely appreciate it!
