Data Team One improves officer assignments management through automation

Mundane tasks — tedious, repetitive, and error-prone — are a thing of the past for the U.S. Coast Guard’s Officer Assignments Branch (OPM-2) thanks to the Office of Data and Analytics’ (CG-ODA) Data Team One’s innovative solution. Tasked with the precise role of managing assignments for officers, OPM-2 faced a tough challenge: reconciling assignment year (AY) shopping lists across the board with impeccable accuracy. It is critical to complete this reconciliation annually, and the window for doing so is strictly limited to only 45 days. 

Enter Data Team One’s Robotics Process Automation (RPA) service, a fleet of bots equipped to tackle these types of data-intensive tasks. By deploying these automated helpers, Data Team One has revolutionized how the Coast Guard handles this crucial information. Bots can be programmed to perform data entry, extract information from documents, and automate responses.
