Understanding Cleansing Your SalesLogix Database

SalesLogix is one of the world’s most popular customer relationship management (CRM) tools. It can bridge the gap between customers and sales very effectively, and it can also act as the hub for the information that will form your single customer view.

Like any application that relies on data to function, SalesLogix (SLX) is vulnerable to data quality problems if the data within the system is not properly maintained. DQ Global has produced a number of enhancements for SalesLogix that plug directly into the system.

Together, Capture for SalesLogix™ and Cleanse for SalesLogix™ make up the DQ Global Dedupe for SalesLogix Suite.

About Capture for SalesLogix

Data quality is all about reducing errors in your database and improving the accuracy of information. By ensuring the information you capture is of a good standard, you can greatly slow the rate of decay in your CRM database. This means there will be fewer problems with inaccuracies in the future.

DQ Global’s® Capture for SalesLogix™ plugs into your CRM to assist with accurate capture. It enhances the system in a number of crucial ways:

  • Adds fuzzy search to the Add Record interface so that existing account contact records can be picked up without exact match spelling.
  • Prevents duplication of records by making it easy to locate existing clients with the same information.
  • Improves consistency in your database.

Capture matches data in five languages and uses DQ Global’s sophisticated Fonetix algorithms to match data phonetically. However you type a name or address, it will find matches that sound the same.

About Cleanse for SalesLogix

Our Capture tool will prevent a huge amount of data quality problems at source. But for the ones that slip through, there’s Cleanse for SalesLogix™.

Cleanse can be used when data has been incorrectly captured, or when databases are manually merged or joined using an import operation. The tool meshes seamlessly with the SalesLogix application and extends its functionality, ensuring the data within it is clean and tidy.

Cleanse allows approved staff to identify, merge, re-assign and synchronise data across the SalesLogix application. It can be used for all primary entities in the Accounts, Contacts, Leads and Opportunities screens within your copy of SalesLogix.

Using DQ Global’s® Cleanse tool, records can be matched, deduplicated, ignored and merged as appropriate. Administrators can also create custom table joins. When data is matched, the software intelligently scores the matches and weights them to make each review efficient and speedy.

Any changes made during the data deduplication and data cleansing processes will be recorded in an audit trail. If records have been reviewed already, Cleanse for SalesLogix intelligently files those records away for maximum efficiency, ensuring they are not repeatedly presented for review.
