Are you still struggling with manual research?
Performing research is a task assignment that almost everyone needs to do in their working role. We all know that it is extremely important to stay up to date, keep up with news and updates, monitoring competitors and your own products. But it’s not only important for development and decision making - in many industries, research and monitoring is a required activity to stay compliant to regulations. Are you performing research for post market surveillance, regulatory intelligence, pharmacovigilance, or content marketing and writing? It’s time to stop performing manual processes and start automating the job. Why? We give you 4 reasons why research should be automated from now on.
The risk of doing the job twice
When doing manual research in a team or organization, it is a struggle to know who does what by when. It happens all the time that you and your colleagues do the exact same searches with the same keywords on the same sources. And the findings? Yes, they will probably also be the same. Double job = twice as much time spent. So start by deciding who's responsible for research in each area. This will save you a lot of time!
Handling of irrelevant content
Searching on Google and other search services will give thousands and thousands of results. With just one search field to enter your keywords, the results will easily be very broad and most of the content will not be relevant to you. Handling irrelevant content is not the most fun and effective task to do, and we are sure that the time could be better spent on other, more important tasks. There is also not only one place to search within, as there are lots of sources, such as databases, forums, media news, and social media to keep track of. It quickly becomes a large task with so many different sources and articles to handle.
Missing out on important insights, news, updates and mentions
The effect of handling a lot of data and content is that you can easily miss out on important insights, news, updates, and mentions. That’s just the human factor, but it can be solved easily by automating the process of content monitoring. By doing that, you will be able to see the results of your searches directly (the same day as it is published) and can take necessary actions in a timely manner. Missing updates and mentions of your products or company can have consequences and should be prevented. The types of content that need to be taken care of right away can be incident reports, negative feedback, and complaints about your products.
The time thief we have to get rid of
It goes without saying that manual research will lead to inefficient processes and a lot of time spent. In today's digital world, more and more are getting automated. So why stay in the past when it comes to doing research in a really inefficient way? No matter why you perform research, it has to be done - but there are many ways to do it more efficiently.
