Data collection and management processes are extremely manual, time-consuming, and prone to error. Data analysts and scientists can spend up to 70% of their time performing simple data pulls and other tedious tasks, especially when collecting information on an ongoing basis. Through RPA, Guidehouse’s team provides you with bots that can automatically perform scheduled data pulls, check for data inconsistencies, and reconcile conflicting information in an efficient and accurate manner. Additionally, RPA can automate and streamline the generation of recurring reports, such as daily snapshots or monthly summaries, allowing your data personnel to focus their efforts on deriving additional insights and completing additional analyses. Guidehouse has worked with numerous organizations across different sectors, helping identify known and new stakeholders, and their unique issues and concerns; aiding in the development of strategic communications plans for local and national outreach to drive positive impact; and contributing to preparations for Congressional hearings.
