Databases are the most powerful tool businesses have for managing information. The better organized, accurate and extensive your databases are, the more productive your company will be. The reason is clear to see: the faster your employees can find the information they need to complete a certain task, the quicker the task will be completed. Even improving the organization of your databases so that employees find what they are looking for two minutes quicker will save thousands of hours over the course of a year.
It is easy to recognize the importance of well organized data, but harder to create a system that works well for you. Of course there are many computer programs that make this task easier, but the fact remains that someone still has to manage the problem. Some small business owners take this task on themselves, most likely hunched sleepily over the computer late at night after all the other work for the day has been completed. This is obviously not the ideal state for data entry. One is sure to make more mistakes, and even when it is entered correctly, it is more likely to be poorly organized. Other business owners assign this task to an employee, but unless this person enjoys working with data and has a good organizational sense, the same problems will present themselves.
