Did you know?

Businesses have had problems with bad data in their client lists

Surveys reveal that 88% of businesses have had problems with bad data in their email, contact and client lists. Enterprises rely on their database for their operations, and lists contribute a large part of any database. To maintain the consistency and accuracy of the database, these lists must be audited and cleaned periodically for higher operational efficiency.

Why does this happen?

  • Erroneous and incomplete data entry by employees or customers.

  • Lack of standardization in phone numbers, addresses, and email addresses.

  • Merging of data from different sources.

  • Nicknames, names with multiple accepted spellings, and abbreviations.

  • Nearly 70% of data decays every year and results in wasted sales and marketing efforts.

What is List Cleaning?

With the increasing volumes of data and the number of systems in use today, your lists degrade with every passing day and every time new data is entered.

Maintain and manage your lists easily with batch cleaning using scheduling features, or integrate list cleaning software with your systems to clean in real-time, as data is entered.
