I mentioned in my previous post that, at my current organization, we had made good use of FME in processing non-spatial business data. In this post, I’ll provide an example of that. One of the functions in my department is professional services. Our professional services team, like similar teams in many product companies, doesn’t capture its own work. It is dependent on our sales team to capture work and communicate when the deal has closed so work can begin. As we grew, and as we switched to fully remote during the pandemic, this communication often lagged, resulting in delays in starting work that had previously closed. We chose to tackle this problem with automation.
