“You can have Data without Information, but you cannot have Information without Data.” – Daniel Keys Moran
Shiv, a Graphic Designer, owns a company called Creative Creations. The company deals in wedding cards, greeting cards, different types of papers, and packing materials. He has a team of 15 members which include 4 core team members in the office, 6 salespersons to showcase his creation in the market, and 5 freelancing workers on weekly basis to shop for the material required and basic necessities. Creative Creations is a firm with a good corporate image because of its unique collection, creativity, quality, and most important services.
To manage the entire business he uses TallyPrime for accounting, inventory, and monthly payroll. Once Shiv had sent one of his team members to his client Mr. Vyas and as per the address provided to the salesman by the official team member, the salesman had reached before time. But to his bad luck, the address provided was incorrect; Mr. Vyas had shifted his company a long time back i.e. 2 years. This misleads of information wasted time and energy of the salesman and moreover he was not able to hold on to his meeting. Suddenly he realized at least 5 to 6 couriers ( of Invoice/document etc.) are being returned every month.
What do you think was the problem? According to us, Shiv and his official team members did not do periodic updates the KYC of their clients, and vendors thus had to face this major disaster.
Returned Couriers are also a threat for the company’s goodwill as the accounts team member is assured that he has couriered the document, cheque, etc. but eventually the document is returning due to the false address of the respective company.
In all the fields being expert and skilled is very important as it shows how well experienced you are. Organizations like Manufacturing, Accounting, Trading, Entertainment, Merchandising, Re- Selling etc. are on their way to becoming competent in the market. To broadcast yourself you should be in constant touch with your Customers and Vendors so that you have an idea about their whereabouts.
The agenda is not just to do business but to make sure that you are doing it correctly and professionally by proper KYC update of Customers and Vendors also at the same time.
Not updating the Masters in TallyPrime i.e. no address or contact updates, no contact person updates often lead you into such kind of trouble. If your company data have wrong addresses of your clients and vendors and the salesman has no clue about this then you are in the wrong direction.
Updating KYC should be done periodically, maybe, every quarter in order to maintain the customer relationships and to make sure that the data possessed is correct.
To avoid chaos and to avoid putting the company’s goodwill on the stake it is better to update the masters in a simple Accounting Software likely named as TallyPrime with Aimtech’s customization- Address Book Module.
