Before the Internet, when we wanted to find a product or service, we thumbed through the Yellow Pages. Their memorable “Let your fingers do the walking” earned an honorable mention in the Advertising Age Top 10 Slogans of the 20th century.

With the onset of new technology, the Yellow Pages had to make a huge adjustment. Today, we scroll and swipe to find information. Our fingers no longer do the walking.

What’s more, in business operations, those walking fingers can lead to king-sized errors. Particularly when it comes to data entry.

Database managment

In a report issued in 2013, two Oxford University academics, Michael Osborne and Carl Frey calculated how susceptible to automation each job is based on nine key skills required to perform it; social perceptiveness, negotiation, persuasion, assisting and caring for others, originality, fine arts, the need to work in a cramped work space, finger dexterity, and manual dexterity.

Look closer at those last three items and put them in the context of those office personnel who perform your data entry day after day.

Do your data personnel work in a tight office space while pounding out a huge volume of numbers and information repeatedly while making inevitable typographic errors? If so, then you are probably already nodding, “There has to be a better solution.”

Fortunately, Foxtrot data automation technology is already available to put an end to those manual entry errors.

Financial institutions, healthcare organizations, manufacturing companies, and other businesses that depend on large amounts of customer data already rely on Foxtrot’s error-proof, lightning-fast capabilities to manage data. From combining databases from completely different application platforms to automating claims processing and payments and considerably more, Foxtrot is the technology of choice for automating data management.

Do not be the one that still demands that the fingers of your employees do the walking.
