If your workers are entering any data manually—or entering data multiple times—they’re making mistakes. Period. Without data automation and automated processes, errors will continue to cost businesses unknown millions—or even lives, if your industry is healthcare. How much are simple, avoidable errors costing you?
The 1-10-100 Rule
The longer it takes to detect an error, the more expensive and devastating it can be in terms of time and costs to repair it. Commonly known as the 1-10-100 rule by Total Quality Management, a simple $1.00 mistake can cost $10 to fix if not caught when made, but can then compound quickly to cost $100 if the error continues to be overlooked.
In high-performing workplaces with highly-skilled people, even the best typists make roughly 1 error per 300 words—but production operators are typically not skilled typists. Manual mistakes, often made by deciphering illegible handwriting or by workers multi-tasking, not paying attention or being in a hurry can creep into Information Systems and compound exponentially through your operation:
- Manufacturing/production work order errors
- Slow processing times
- Mis-typed addresses or SKUs
- Picking or packing wrong merchandise
- Shipping to wrong customer
- Billing delays and errors
- Angry and dissatisfied customers!
