Data Quality

Two out of five business objectives under perform due to poor data quality.

We make it easy to discover, cleanse and integrate enterprise data so you may achieve desired business outcomes.

Enterprise applications, big data, cloud solutions, mobile, social media, sensors and the Internet of Things (IoT) are all contributing to unprecedented volumes of data being created at an accelerated pace. With so many sources and systems, data is often incomplete; full of misspellings, redundancies, or duplicate records – all of which is hampering your ability to perform business processes effectively and make timely accurate decisions.

So what’s the answer? Companies must learn how to improve and maintain the quality of their most valuable data assets. This is where the Information Management experts at Method360 can assist. We teach you how to put the right people, processes and technologies in place that allow you to identify, prioritize, measure and improve the quality of data to achieve the desired business outcomes.

Your data’s dirty little secrets are impacting every aspect of your business.

Customers – Poor data quality is often found to be the root cause of underperforming marketing, sales, order fulfillment and customer service efforts.  Customers today have more options than ever and failing to provide the best possible customer experience will financially impact your company.

Employees – In today’s data driven environment, your employees depend on enterprise data to perform their jobs.  Failing to invest in quality data is setting your employees up to fail, causing labor to be misspent and unnecessary frustration that, over time, deteriorates employee morale.

Suppliers –  An inability to accurately track supplier data can lead to poorly negotiated contracts and breakdowns in the supply chain. With organizations sharing data with many of their business partners, this also opens up the risk in damaging the company’s reputation within the industry.

Operations – The opportunities for poor quality data to adversely affect the operational efficiency of an organization are countless.  They result in delays in production cycles, over or under stock of inventory, delayed or dropped customer shipments, inefficient sales performance along with errors in accounting, all risking adverse financial impact.
