Through the CoP, MSI also provides advisory support to Government agencies interested in initiating or maturing their RPA Program, including leaders at over a dozen Federal agencies.

RPA Solution

The General Services Administration (GSA) manages office space in 9,600 buildings across the US. To track the spread within its organization, geographic input must be correlated with the number of infections in each country, in order to build a map of the COVID-19 threat in the countries surrounding its properties.

In response to the pandemic, MSI assisted in automating the process of aggregating and uploading the data to the map, helping to ensure that GSA employees and buildings are safe during a time of global crisis.

Daily Check-In Automation

Digital Transformation Practice
 

Objective

The General Services Administration (GSA) has more than 12,000 employees and either owns or manages approximately 600 buildings across the United States. During the COVID-19 pandemic, GSA leadership has made it a priority to understand occupancy  trends for owned and leased space, while also ensuring that employees are safe.

In response to the pandemic, MSI developed the Daily Check-In Tracking System to assist the agency in accomplishing priorities. 

Through the implementation of the process, GSA leadership is able to understand the wellness of the more than 12,000 employees and the occupancy trends of all 600 buildings, at both an office and employee level. Reports are automatically developed and sent on a nightly basis, providing the agency with seemingly real time feedback.
