Robust Data Quality 

The Political Contributions Surveillance product is centered around the collection and distribution of data on political contributions made by US citizens. This data is gathered from hundreds of public and government information sources, with individual contribution records numbering in the tens of thousands per week. With these large volumes of data, it is imperative that there are automated processes in place to both gather the data and monitor the sources. Xebia was successful in putting in place effective tools and processes, which ultimately led to improvements in both the quality and timeliness of the data. 

More user-friendly experience

"The swift and focused initiative to enhance the quality and timeliness of the data, as well as modernizing the user experience means that we are able to offer a product that is aligned seamlessly with other products across the Star Platform.”

Xebia worked collaboratively with Star’s UX team and was successful in delivering against the objective with both speed and quality, with the new UX gaining praise both internally and, more importantly, from Star’s clients.
