Trustworthy data requires more than accuracy in data entry and a high-quality software solution. It requires that every piece of information from every single ministry be kept in a single source that is accessible by all.

Yes, there are a lot of database practices administrative staff must get right, but without the cooperation of each ministry leader, the result will be a dirty database.

What does it take to get EVERY ministry leader to comply?

  • A no-exception mandate from someone in authority (including himself).
  • A leader who really understands that data is his most valuable ministry resource and his staff’s best tool for offering exceptional member care.
  • Access to the proper training and tools for his staff
  • Backing to allow staff to put new processes in place
