Lincoln is a company that receives and processes thousands of data files every day for bulk analysis. They teamed up with Orange County-based Idea Maker to create a Robotic Process Automation system for their business. Before partnering with Idea Maker, Lincoln employees had to do the processing manually. Manual entry of this quantity of data is tedious, expensive, and if rife with opportunity for error. Lincoln needed to find a more accurate and efficient way to process all of the information.
Because of the menial nature of the task, the best option was automating the systems. However, not all of the data files they received were in the same format. The system they built would need to be intelligent and use machine learning to accurately process the information. Further, the information would need to be processed into a detailed database that could be viewed, filtered, and sorted to find specific data, and accurately map that data.
Through the collaboration and detailed discussions with the team at Lincoln, Idea Maker created a Robotic Process Automation system to delve, filter, and migraine the data into a more easily processed format. The new program is able to analyze information looking for similarities and import them to a larger more useful database.
Customizing a Robotic Process Automation System
By working in close partnership with Lincoln, Idea Maker was able to deliver a product that filled the needs of the company and allowed room for growth and expansion without hindrance. The Robotic Process Automation that is now in place can process more data than a manual entry process with fewer mistakes.
What We Did
Lincoln deals with huge quantities of highly classified and high-security data. Securing that data against tampering and leaks is a significant concern of the client and their industry. Idea Maker took this concern seriously as well and worked hard to build in security features that similar programs lack. Failure to secure the information properly can have serious repercussions for the company and its clients.
Data Mapping Accuracy
The way the new system was coded, the information could be received in non-standard templates, and still be assessed and imported to a master database accurately to increase the usability of data mapping. Lincoln needed the ability to integrate many different data streams into combined files for mapping.
The accuracy of this data is essential to those that pay Lincoln for their services, so it was crucial that Idea Maker follow through with the highest quality product possible. Data processed in this way can be used for scientific studies, financial analysis, health and safety procedures, and more. The value of robotic process automation in this stage of the analysis is incredibly valuable to the client and their patrons.
Database Viewer with Filter
With the needs of Lincoln clearly laid out, Idea Maker created a database viewer with a customized filter system to help users better find and read the data. This database viewer is similar to Power BI and other data filter systems but is fully customized to the Lincoln team’s needs.
One of the purposes of processing data for analysis is to make the information easier to read, and the patterns easier to see. This goal is achieved and surpassed by the robotic process automation system that Lincoln contracted Idea Maker to create.
