ACCURACY


Accuracy

We teach data handling skills that can save your organization money, increase productivity, and improve operational efficiency. Employees who complete the accuracy training we offer typically reduce errors by 59% and increase their processing speed by 7%


Why Is Accuracy Important?

All organizations use data and every employee must be able to deliver reliable and accurate data all of the time. No matter how many fail-safe systems we use (check digits, double keying, 100% verification) people still make mistakes with numbers and data. A simple transposition of two numbers can start a chain of misinformation that can take days, and sometimes months, to fix.

Every error costs money and it can take a lot of time to find and correct errors. When you consider the additional cost of offending, irritating, and possibly losing a customer, the cost of errors is enormous. Let Evoke Development help you drastically reduce the number of errors made, teaching your staff techniques to get it right the first time, every time.
