Corporate decisions and streamlined operations rely greatly on data quality, as well as proper data management. In fact, to some, high-level data may be one of their most valuable assets. A vital step in maintaining accurate data is ongoing data “cleansing.” By providing “clean” data your company and/or your clients will be better informed and will be able to gather more accurate analytics, allowing for a more seamless decision-making process. The following are a few best practice tips to ensure data accuracy:
- Implement a successful management system in which you can easily manage, find and disperse data.
- Check for duplicates.
- Separate your data into multiple fields so it can be found easily, with practically any relevant criteria (name, company, phone number, email, location, project name, etc.).
- Check content fields to ensure that all information is needed and accurate.
- Always use full, proper names of companies, people, etc. Data should be easily accessed by anyone within your company, even a new employee or someone new to an account.
