P.S.:- Today, I am going to review Duplicate Check for Salesforce.
Interested in achieving, and maintaining, an air-tight data integrity? Then, don’t be duped by duplicate records in your system. Duplicate data occur when an exact copy of a record is created as a separate entry in the same system. The problem is compounded when an organization uses multiple platforms. As a result, the presence of duplicate data becomes a major impediment in achieving and maintaining, data integrity. Absence of data integrity severely impacts users’ ability to make, and rely on, business decisions based on duplicate data. Therefore, the issue of duplicate data has to be addressed in earnest!
A study by Experian found that as many as 94% of organizations suspect that their customer, and prospect, data may be inaccurate. According to experts, duplication rates between 10%–30% are not uncommon for companies without data quality initiatives in place. Furthermore, research from the Data Warehouse Institute maintains that data quality problems costs, U.S. businesses, more than $600 billion every year. And, it concludes that, duplicate records affects a company in a variety of ways and results in measurable costs.
