Data may be one of the most important assets of a business and can be seen as the compass, giving direction and pointing towards the correct decisions.
Keeping track of customers, transactions, stock and documents are but a few reasons to value data.
Although data may provide us with essential knowledge, it also poses a lot of challenges.
The Problem – Duplicate Records
One of these challenges is the fact that items of data may be duplicates (spelling variations, punctuation and white space), leaving a business with inaccurate information. This in turn leads to wastage of mail, bad rapport with customers and overall bad Business Intelligence.
To many SMEs, the above-mentioned challenge would involve significant time spent trying to identify duplicate item entries manually, or a possible substantial investment in specialized BI tools.
From a business aspect, the companies that are not able to invest in such tools have a distinct disadvantage in respect to the valuable data commodity and the value thereof
We – Alicornio Africa and Pitney Bowes SA – have identified this as a problem throughout much of the SME market. We have launced a service to identify duplicate records getting to the heart of the problem using Sagent Data Flow™ and Advanced Matcher Transform™ a Pitney Bowes Software product.
How it is done
- The service can be executed onsite or offsite depending on requirements
- The result of this service would be a report and identification of all duplicate records
- The cost of this service will be determined on an individual basis.
Things to consider
- Data is not in any way compromised and will remain secure
- Sagent Data Flow™ is a Turnkey Solution keeping the service time frame short
Cleaner data is more effective data, aiding decision-making by means of more accurate statistics.
