Why Clean and Organised Data Is So Important for Your Business’ Growth

When it comes to business growth, there are a number of aspects that will contribute to the rate that your business will expand. One of the key areas that will impact this is the way your business organises its data.

Although the task can be time-consuming, ensuring your company’s data is clean and organised can have a significant impact on the growth. If, for example, the data your company is storing is of poor quality, the decisions made based on that data can have a negative impact further down the line. This can happen across all sectors of a business from finance to service.

Inaccurate data can have a negative impact on businesses, especially when it comes to customer relationships. Low-quality data can often result in customers and prospects receiving information that isn’t relevant or of interest to them, which can lead to your business being flagged as spam.

Data cleansing can help businesses minimise the amount of low-quality data that they store. By removing or modifying any incorrect, inaccurate, duplicated or unnecessary data, you are achieving higher data integrity which is key for staff members when they make decisions or take actions based on the data to hand.

High-quality data must be accurate, consistent, valid and complete. Ensuring phone numbers are the same across multiple sets of data is important, as well as cross-referencing this with names, email addresses and any other information you have stored for a particular account.

The use of high-quality data can drive faster customer acquisition. Having accurate data on prospects and current customers can help businesses target marketing to specific groups and build stronger relationships that ultimately result in a higher volume of sales.

Decision-making is improved when staff members are supplied with accurate, high-quality data. There is less room for error when data is accurate, as well as a higher chance of decisions and tasks that are a result of looking at data being a success.

Furthermore, high-quality data can save resources. Having a regular data cleanse and removing any incorrect or unwanted data can speed up processing times and also save memory space. Not only this, but it also saves staff members time and boosts productivity. Fewer minutes are spent searching through large amounts of meaningless data, meaning more time can be spent on tasks that will benefit the growth and success of your business.

Why Project Planning Is Crucial To Success

Having a detailed and robust plan is often the backbone that carries you to success when it comes to campaigns. It can often be a time-consuming task, and many project managers may skip over the step to save time. However, You shouldn’t overlook the importance of having a structured plan.

The main benefit of project planning is the increase in quality of performance and the likelihood of success. One of the biggest reasons for the failure of projects is team members not doing their jobs properly, which can be to do with confusion of roles and responsibilities. If staff members aren’t given clear instructions before the project launch, wires can often get crossed, resulting in poor performance. Having a clear project plan lowers the likelihood of team members being unsure of their responsibilities or unclear on deadlines, increasing the chances of success in the long run.

Furthermore, planning increases the quality of communication across the team. Not only does it allow staff to understand their roles and responsibilities appropriately, but it also allows them to understand the importance of everybody’s contribution. If one person may be falling behind on their part, other team members will be able to give them a helping hand with their workload if needed.

Project planning doesn’t just benefit team members knowing their tasks, it also allows you to have a clear outline of costs and materials required for the project. By having this information already mapped out, it stops you from overspending in areas where it’s unnecessary, as well as going over budget on tools and resources you don’t need. This contributes to the overall success of the project by ensuring you are set to profit as much as possible without excessive spends.

Similarly, planning allows you to conduct a full risk assessment of your project. By doing this, you are preparing yourself and your team with the knowledge on how to overcome any risks or issues that may occur during the project. This saves time in the long run and increases productivity among team members as they are already equipped with the information on how to solve any problems and keep the project on track for success.

Planning also gives you the option to set milestones for team members to aim for throughout the project. By identifying these points in the planning and preparation stage, team members have clear goals to aim for that will help to keep everybody on track towards delivering a successful project.

In conclusion, having a solid plan is a crucial element when it comes to success. It provides clear direction for team members and eliminates the risk of unclear objectives, poor management, and wasting valuable resources.

Quality Management Software by Azzure IT for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central and Microsoft Dynamics NAV

Azzure IT‘s Quality Management Software app provides customers with a fully configurable application within their Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central solution, to create and manage inspection checklists, assign inspections based on user or teams, and manage failed products through a quarantine and non-conformance process. These inspections can be applied to operations in process, goods inward, goods out, quality auditing and documentation checking.

Our Quality Management Software app for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central has a variety of features designed specifically to enhance the performance of your business and reduce the time spent on each task, while still ensuring high-quality performance. This app shows you pass or fail inspections, which are based on inspection questionnaires or checklists, and allow you to automate your inspection process. To streamline the process, any failed items are automatically highlighted during these inspections and are assigned to a quarantine area.

To further provide your staff with detailed insights to help enhance business processes, reports are also provided on any outstanding stock items, in the quarantine area, which require further testing. Creating these reports gives you and your business increased visibility, and lets you know which stock items still require more testing before being ready.

Any reports that get created are not posted until inspection records are completed. Preventing this process from being completed until after the inspection records are completed reduces room for error and thus, leads to less time wasted on fixing any mistakes that can be easily avoided.

Azzure IT’s Quality Management Software app is fully built within and designed specifically for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central and is a fully configurable system for your business. It allows your business to control and manage quality across a range of modules.
