In today’s digital age, data is king. Companies are now warehousing higher volumes of consumer data through more channels than ever before. This data is helping to improve the user experience and customer satisfaction, facilitating more intelligent business decisions and generating overall gains in revenue.
With such high volumes of data being collected, businesses are also faced with the reality of a lack of data integrity and data accuracy. A high level of inaccurate data puts limits on how data can be used, which creates lost time, money and opportunities.
One way organizations can improve accuracy is by utilizing contact data validation.

This translates to decreased costs and resources associated with incorrect contact information.

There is no greater example of this than in Port Elizabeth, South Africa. It’s an area that sees unemployment hover at 40%, with youth unemployment at 50%; a major contributor to a country that has over 7.4 million people unemployed.
The unemployment epidemic is strongly correlated to the access children have to quality education and essential school supplies which support their learning environment. This access in Port Elizabeth is still largely restricted because of the struggle to recuperate from apartheid rule.
