Our Tools

SONAR Congress

Through SONAR Congress it is possible to consult ALL the draft bills that passes-through Congress and to estimate the approval probability each bill has along the Congressional process established by Law 5 of 1992.

 

This is possible thanks to an algorithm that allows us to estimate the probability of approval and rejection. The algorithm is built and verified with historical data, using variables such as date of filling, authors, theme, steps among others.

 

SONAR offers the opportunity to consult the draft bills by categories or themes, as well as to select all the initiatives of interest. The quantitative nature, achieved through the approval probability of each draft bill, allows generating expectations about the future of regulation in a certain field.

 

At SONAR we have integrated LA SILLA DATOS, as a qualitative element that accounts for the profiles of some of the congressmen or women, identifying their respective political alliances and rivalries. It is also an element that allows us to understand the networks of the politicians in Colombia.

SONAR Regulatory Alerts

SONAR Regulatory Alerts performs the daily and automatic search of decrees, resolutions, and circulares in the consultation process, and thanks to technology it sends immediate alerts to our clients.

 

Through SONAR, we visit daily the predefined websites to find out if any regulation has been uploaded for consultation. This process is known as web scraping, which is the technique used to extract information from web pages in an automated way. Scraping works through search algorithms to crawl hundreds of websites and to extract only the information we need.

 

Once this process has been carried out, the client will receive a daily email with the regulatory updates and direct links to each document so that they can be consulted.
