Data Quality Solutions for Google Sheets

A Brief Look at Your Data Quality Problem

If you merge, migrate, export or import data, then you have undoubtedly faced data quality issues in your work. Data quality issues (like duplicate records, typos and spelling variations, etc.) can lower productivity, increase budget costs, lower customer satisfaction and reduce efficiency. Experts say each record of bad data will cost your business no less than $100 per record stored and yet cleaning that bad record will only cost $10 [Source].

By adding Flookup to your software stack, issues like these can be avoided or resolved. Flookup will help you increase efficiency, reduce your error rate and, therefore, save money.

What is Flookup?

Flookup is a suite of solutions for managing data quality in Google Sheets by using advanced fuzzy matching and fuzzy lookup techniques. This allows Flookup to do any of the following, regardless of differences in spelling or the presence of partial matches in your data:

    • Match or merge data.
    • Highlight or remove duplicates.
    • Calculate the percentage similarity between strings.
    • Find the sum or average of numbers based on corresponding matches.
    • Merge cells based on matches from a single column.
    • Extract unique values from any column.

Flookup functions are not affected by the sort order of columns or rows, punctuation marks or the case of the text, thereby saving you from the time and hard work it takes to clean and prepare your data for analysis.
