Information Plus Data the Vitality of Your Business

February 23rd, 2017 by Guillermo Fernandez

A company cannot make good decisions without good information and actionable data.

Like the blood in our bodies that feeds all our vital organs with life-giving oxygen, so, too, does mission-specific information and actionable data feed the vitality of your business. If you are looking for ways to mine the most vital data that will improve field-level logistics in several key areas, including operations, support and sales, you may want to do an information health check on the process you use for data mining and information storage.

The Reality of an Information Health Check

Oftentimes through an information health check, an organization will find not only do they have all the good information and actionable data they need, it also exists in duplicate, stored in multiple places. In a way, your company may have too much stored information to sort through, with one key piece missing that would make the difference.

How, where and when initial information is processed could mean delays in storing the data, which could impact its integrity.

  • The “how” – say your company uses a mix of gathering paper and electronic files that need to be copied, printed, scanned or faxed.
  • The “where” – this collection process typically takes place both in the field (to collect the information) and at the office (where data entry happens).
  • The “when” – from field to office, sometimes there’s a delay in the data update, despite mandates from management.

Sometimes, this “process” simply forgets that a diverse group of humans will be interfacing with it. Any improvement to the process ultimately is made by addressing its “how,” “where” and “when” – using mobile technology for human input. Enterprise VoIP mobility solutions connect information with reduction in duplicate data entry in an accurate and real-time way.
