Case Study

A Corporate Government Affairs Team Saves 500 Hours

A government affairs team active in DC and 4 states had separate tools for federal and state bills and neither platform included collaboration tools.

They spent hours each week compiling their individual results into a single report for management. They had no visibility into each other’s work. If one team wanted to know what the other was doing, they had to engage in time-consuming back-and-forth exchanges over email or Slack.

Hours of productive time were wasted. Their lobbying was negatively impacted.


The team began using Capitol Canary to manage all of their work. They use the platform to tag bills and stakeholder issues. Anytime a news story or tweet shows up, they alert whoever needs to know.

They log every meeting, so colleagues can see each other’s work. They upload reports and analyses directly into the system. When HQ needs reports on bills being worked, it’s a simple job to show them.

The average time savings is one hour each week per person, rolling up to 500 hours every year.
