Central Data Validation

01 The best available complex tool that can be used to achieve proper data quality is DSS’ central data validation solution. Quality Monitor is a proprietary tool based on step-by-step methodology that offers entry opportunities for companies situated on different levels from a data quality point of view. The projects usually start with a data quality assessment phase to see the level the company is situated on and to define the tasks that need to be performed. At the same time this methodology also helps the customer whose master data has just been cleansed to focus on the implementation of real-time validation so the entry of the newly generated master data would be correct and monitored.

Real-time validation is the brand new method of data cleansing that, in a preventive way, monitors and corrects master data prior to entry and storage into the database. When this solutions is being introduced the data entry channels and data flow are being assessed and this is followed by the implementation of iQualidator real-time data validation solution on the online data entry points and the offline batch interfaces.

The central data validation solution guarantees that data coming from every channel is going to be monitored and corrected in the same way with the same methodologies ensuring thus the adequate data quality level.

The solution puts an end to the idea that data cleansing activity needs to be performed again from time to time since as a unique tool on the market offers solution to the creation of perfect quality data.

Our solutions can be easily fitted to front-end web interfaces and has other suitable interfaces with applications so it can be introduced in a short time and operated efficiently.

Logistics optimization

We think that transportation can be optimized in many ways in order to reduce costs while potentially improving customer satisfaction. The most important actions that need to be undertaken here are to find the cost effective itineraries while respecting the delivery regulations, to plan transportation accurately taking into consideration transportation modes (special vehicles, other limitations), costs and customer delivery windows as well.

Our logistics optimization framework offers solution to the above mentioned problems. Followed by an initial parametrization and customization this framework can offer the following advantages to your company in a very short time:

  • reduce transportation costs
  • reduce the number of kilometers driven,
  • improve transportation capacities
  • adhere to the limitations of capacities with regard to the capacities of transport vehicles
  • optimal operation of transportation and planning processes
  • opportunities for analyses thanks to the possibility of generating reports

With our solutions you can generate optimized transportation plans on a daily basis pushing a single button. The system is able to consider several parameters that can be defined individually so it can operate with regard to special transport vehicles (e.g. cargo dimensions, type, special needs like cold storage vehicle, small vehicle, and waste pumping trucks) and taking into account fixed or variable costs that with manual planning cannot be considered.

Along with the planning process incoming data from source systems or data bases reach the optimization engine in a structured format. Our solution can be integrated to already existing ERP systems or fleet monitoring systems. We can generate several reports from the data processed with our solution and all this information can be used for statistical purposes choosing relevant topics like significant time variations, diverging from route, incomplete deliveries and planned costs.

Geocoding

In many cases a business need occurs where the addresses need to be displayed on maps and for this reason geocoding is needed. A geocode is a spatial representation of a descriptive locational reference. A geocoder is a piece of software or a (web) service that implements a geocoding process i.e. a set of inter-related components in the form of operations, algorithms, and data sources that work together to produce a spatial representation for descriptive locational references. Geocoding is a process where mapping coordinates, typically latitude and longitude, are appended to data based on their addresses. A simple method of geocoding is address interpolation. This method makes use of data from a street geographic information system where the street network is already mapped within the geographic coordinate space. Each street segment is attributed with address ranges (e.g. house numbers from one segment to the next). Geocoding takes an address, matches it to a street and specific segment (such as a block, in towns that use the "block" convention). Geocoding then interpolates the position of the address, within the range along the segment.

Depending on the details of the addresses that are going to be geocoded there are certain geocoding levels that can be achieved (street, number, city), so the accuracy of the whole database that goes through the geocoding process depends on the completeness of the addresses and their quality after cleansing. If you wish to improve the geocoding accuracy for some records, manual intervention may be required. Manual intervention is time consuming, but will improve geocoding hit rates for those addresses that include intersections, or obvious typographical errors. The addresses can be reached on a special web resource where hits can be specified by locating an address on the map or by correcting it.

Address cleansing solution

With data cleansing projects most of the problems are connected to the quality of address data so our solution focuses on the automatic correction these. This solution can manage the automatic correction of address databases containing several millions of records in a very short time. In the cleansing process the addresses are properly tokenized and after this they are brought to proper forms regarding their forms and contents with the help of methods for type error correction. Those addresses that are incomplete or cannot be properly corrected are compiled into a bug list and this way some of them can be corrected manually. In the case of address verification and correction en masse we do geocoding as well. (see our Geocoding solution)
