Why Streamline Data Management?

Establishing effective data collection and management practices in the workplace can be a struggle. In many cases, employees are either left to manually input and maintain large amounts of information - leading to time-consuming processes and an increased risk of errors. Or, they're given access to an array of data management tools, resulting in inconsistent collection and analysis. In a modern digital workplace, gathering and tracking information and data is essential. However, these materials come from various sources, creating an unorganized, unwieldy lot of information. Whether you're building a spreadsheet of tasks or collecting data from forms, information will come from - and end up in - random places, making it burdensome to track and analyze, resulting in inaccurate reports and unmet objectives.

Many companies turn to bespoke data collection and management practices, wasting time sifting through daunting amounts of data tables that are inconsistent and impossible to follow. Our customer, Shelter Insurance, took advantage of MangoApps' Trackers feature to dramatically decrease the time spent updating and maintaining spreadsheets. Mark Jones, Director of the Litigation and Special Investigations Unit at Shelter Insurance, says, "Our department saves a significant amount of time using Trackers. Before, we probably had 18 to 25 individual Excel spreadsheets out there that we had to manually put together and update, which was extremely time-consuming and inconvenient." Without a centralized, structured data management tool, teams are left wading through unorganized oceans of information, regularly encountering the following obstacles to their work day:

Poor Collaboration:

Attempting to work on one spreadsheet with multiple people can be messy and cumbersome. Editing permissions don’t get granted, simultaneous changes create conflicting information, formatting becomes inconsistent…the list goes on, and productivity takes a dive.

Old File Versions:

Managing different versions of a file can lead to confusion and mistakes. When data collection is vital to your organization, staying on top of current information and files is critical. If employees aren't diligent about manually replacing documents or communicating with one another, it can lead to repeated work, poor-quality reports, and frustrated team members.

Lack of Visualization:

So you’ve created an in-depth, impressive spreadsheet, but you’re the only one that understands it, and it’s hard to digest for anyone else. The absence of visualized data slows one's comprehension, in turn slowing the decision-making cycle. Creating an expansive data table is one thing, but ensuring it’s easily understood is another.
