Beat the competition with Custom Applications and SharePoint 2010.

If you look at the way you gather and maintain information about your business, and it involves multiple users entering data by hand, a complicated excel sheet with variants owned by different people, or a highly trained engineer chugging through data for days to create a report, then you could get better quality data faster. Your competition probably already is.

In our last post we talked about how to compete in the fast-paced energy market by making faster, better decisions all the way down the line. With our own Air Force captain on staff, we look at speeding up and improving your decision-making in military terms. Observe. Orient. Decide. Act. Let’s drill down into ‘Observe’ to make sure that you are gathering good data and verifying it. Huge improvements to your bottom line can already happen when you work based on the absolute best observational data.

The accuracy of your decision-driving reports depends on the quality of data they are based on and the thoroughness of your data quality management process. A rigorous quality control process for the information that runs your business is absolutely essential. If your decisions are not based on valid, timely data, you are losing both time and money. You might be basing important financial decisions on incomplete or old data, you might be drilling based on probabilities that have since been dis-proven  Whatever the symptom, if you get better data to your decision makers, you get better decisions.

Entrance can improve your data quality by automatically sourcing from existing data repositories, creating custom validation logic around input forms, as well as automatically screening invalid inputs. Our SharePoint team can give you better quality data by centralizing business data for ease of access, user experience consistency, an easily maintained infrastructure and permission control.

We help you get the quality data that leads to quality decisions.
