Let’s face it your customer database isn’t clean !

In all our years of working with simPRO users we’ve noticed them all. There’s just way too many to list here but I’ll try to make a list, think of what ticks off for you.:

You could have

  • duplicates,duplicates,duplicates,
  • misspelligns
  • wrong email addresses @gamil.com
  • Incorrect CaPItalisATIONS
  • incor rect Spaci n g s
  • Not having the full address (34, Sydney
  • Suburb not entered in the Suburb field
  • Entire Address entered in the street address area
  • Post Code missing
  • Phone number not entered in correct place
  • Phone / mobile not entered in the correct format (Critical for SMS and other phone / Voip services)
  • Mobile entered as phone number and viceversa
  • Two emails entered in the single email address column (John@gmail.com, Lisa@gmail.com)
  • Customer Profile not entered / Not segmented
  • Customer Group not entered / Not segmented
  • And heaps more like this For example companies named differently School, Limited, Ltd etc.

Is this is something that gives you jitters every time you want to run a marketing campaign or send a mass mail out to customers ? Imagine that you have some jobs coming up in a certain area of town and you want to pitch your customers in that area of town to get more work well having a clean database can help with that.

What about an announcement or a special promotion that you want to announce.

Let’s look at a little known export / import feature in simPRO and how you can use it to clean up your simPRO database in the all powerful MS Excel !

So instead of spending hours before every big marketing push here’s how you can clean up your database efficiently in a matter of minutes and hours not days and weeks.

Step 1) Export the simPRO customer list to EXCEL
