How Flookup Works

Flookup [Fuzzy-Lookup] is a lightweight data cleaning add-on for Google Sheets. It uses fuzzy matching to manipulate data in the following ways, regardless of spelling differences, partial matches or any other text based variations in your data:

    • Highlight and remove duplicates.

    • Fuzzy lookup or fuzzy match data a.k.a record linkage.

    • Extract unique values from fuzzy duplicates.

    • Analyse percentage similarities between text entries.

    • Remove unwanted words, diacritics and punctuation marks.

Flookup will not only help you improve efficiency, reduce your error rate and increase productivity in data cleaning, but it will also help you save revenue.

Did You Know?

The 1-10-100 principle states that it costs $1 to verify the quality of your database, $10 to clean each item in it and $100 to store each item that is not cleaned.

For example, using Flookup to clean just 100 rows of data, with 20 of them being dirty and 80 of them clean but in need of verification, will lead to savings of anything between $230 to $250. On the other hand, ignoring this same data will eventually cost anything from $1,000 to $10,000 for you to clean and verify it.
