Data scrubbing is a process which involves taking data from many different sources
of data and adjusting and correcting the data to fit a common format.
It also involves comparing the input data to known standards and correcting the
data as necessary. WIREdata uses many standards for this data scrubbing, from
USPS data to internally developed processes developed in over 10 years of reiterative
refinements. In the past 10 years, we have diligently combined and processed the many
sources of data that we collect and produced a set of data that is common and
uniform throughout the more than 2 million property records currently on file.
|Why Data Scrubbing?
- If you are making a transition from one
software package to another, this process will take the data
from your old software package and create a format of the data
to import into your new software package.
- Want to integrate multiple sources of data that contain
similar data, however are different in the ordering? We can make
a common format among the data sources and integrate the data
from each into the common format.
|Result of Data Scrubbing
- Produce a singular format of the data, which can be used in
data representation systems which have a specified data
- Name and Address correction greatly improves
the data quality and makes for easier searching and mailing capabilities.
- Many fields which are alphanumerically coded can be reduced
to the true description of the coded field. This makes the data more
intuitive and removes the need to lookup the codes.
