Product data powers businesses and is the backbone to many decisions. However, product data, if not correctly managed or cleaned can cause severe operational issues. Dirty product data — inaccurate, incomplete, duplicated or inconsistent information, can cost your business up to 25% of its revenue, with an estimated impact on the US economy exceeding $3 trillion annually.
The hidden costs of dirty product data are immense, often invisible until they disrupt business processes, customer relationships and the accuracy of KPI’s.
What is Dirty Product Data?
Dirty product data refers to errors and discrepancies in the information that your business relies on to sell, distribute and manage your products.
This can range from incorrect product descriptions, duplicated entries, to outdated specifications. The implications are far-reaching, leading over and under stocking, inefficiencies, legal implications and loss of sales.
The Challenge of Manually Cleansing Data
Manually cleaning dirty product data is a tedious task. The sheer volume of data, coupled with the complexity of today’s product ecosystems, makes manual intervention laborious and error-prone. It’s a process that demands considerable time and resources, often resulting in incomplete and temporary fixes.
Here’s Your Solution: Using AI to Automate This Data Cleansing
AI brings a level of sophistication, speed and accuracy to the process that is unattainable by human efforts alone. ML algorithms can analyse vast datasets rapidly, identifying and rectifying errors that would take humans an inordinate amount of time to even detect. These algorithms are not just reactive; they can predict and prevent data inaccuracies before they occur by learning from patterns and anomalies over time.
