When presented with ThoughtTrace as a tool to assist her team, the Right of Way Manager immediately saw the potential for a huge win and jumped right in. She used ThoughtTrace Academy and the ThoughtTrace experts as resources to quickly learn as much as possible and act as an internal resource to field questions that may have otherwise slowed down the project, Instead, she was able to keep her team and the project moving. To get started, a small team of just five people began with uploading scanned documents. Then, leveraging ThoughtTrace Advanced Search, they reviewed and confirmed almost 100,000 documents in less than 8 weeks. Finally, two users reviewed and confirmed the existence or non-existence of “removal required” language for over 7,000 documents in just 3 weeks. They were also able to review and confirm findings, as well as review the remaining 13,000 documents in less than a week, allowing the team to deliver their report on time and with high confidence.
With a project that traditionally takes many months or even years using extensive resources and manpower, the company executed with a skeleton team and exceeded all expectations. The company made the decision to implement a new technology and the Right of Way team leveraged it to success. The team now plans to reimagine current manual review processes with high level review and analysis using ThoughtTrace. Today, the company looks forward to working on new projects where ThoughtTrace will increase their efficiency, improve the accuracy of the results, and make their jobs more fun!
