On October 21, we celebrate Marty McFly Day, dedicated to honoring the time-traveling teen's contribution to the world of time travel in the "Back to the Future" universe. In the spirit of this iconic day, we embark on a journey to learn from Marty's adventures and apply those lessons to address data quality in the business world.
Just as Marty's actions set off ripples through time, we'll explore how address data accuracy—or the lack thereof—can create a ripple effect with profound consequences. Admittedly, Doc Brown did say something like, "Streets? Where we're going, we don't need streets," but he never said we didn't need reliable, clean, and comprehensive address data.
So, get ready to discover how better quality address data can ensure your business stays on the best timeline and avoid the "heavy" consequences of bad data and not "heavy" "as a result of a problem with the earth's gravitational pull."
Imagine this: Marty McFly's meddling with the past led to a chain reaction of events that altered his life and the entire McFly family. In the business world, a similar ripple effect can occur due to a lack of address data accuracy, resulting in delayed deliveries, returned shipments, frustrated customers, negative reviews, fewer customers, and a constant cycle of dissatisfaction.
Don't underestimate the financial impact either; the cost of such inaccuracies can be staggering when multiplied by a constant cycle of incoming erroneous data. To avoid negative ripples, businesses should prioritize address data accuracy.
Marty McFly's experiences in the past yielded both positive and negative outcomes, much like the effects of address accuracy in the corporate world. When he intervened in 1955, George McFly knocked out Biff and set off a chain of events that led to a happier, more prosperous 1985 for the family. In contrast, when 2015 Biff went back in time with Marty's sports almanac, he created a nightmarish alternate 1985.
Similarly, good address data can lead to positive outcomes, including efficiency, better communication, customer satisfaction, and the best possible 1985. Bad data, on the other hand, can drain resources, frustrate customers, damage your reputation, and lead to a future as stark as Biff's version of 1985.
