Data Sieve™ application helps simplify and accelerate data extraction for leases

Data collection and quality represents a critical phase of your leasing lifecycle. We have developed a process supported by Data Sieve, a suite of technology tools to help accelerate the import, extraction, validation, and migration of data within your lease portfolio. This process combines our accounting and industry knowledge with advanced Data Sieve technology to translate lease agreements into a reliable format to populate the future system data model.

Extracting data from leases

PwC can use Data Sieve to quickly and efficiently extract terms and clauses from your lease agreements. Data Sieve uses advanced technologies such as natural language processing and machine learning, combined with a proprietary lease ruleset and term inventory developed by our leasing professionals. These technologies help simplify building a digitized repository of searchable lease terms.

Data quality validation

Once the extraction process is complete, Data Sieve provides a platform for data cleansing. Working with your team, our leasing professionals use an iterative review process supported by customizable metrics to assess quality and prioritize leases for investigation, resulting in cleansed and structured data for migration to your existing or new system(s).
