Supply Management

I want to cleanse the data in my supplier database

The quality of data in supplier databases could often be better. Almost every supplier database contains duplicate, inaccurate and incomplete records. Moreover, you probably use several databases rather than just one. D&B can help you cluster data to produce a single clean ‘vendor master database’.

Improve the quality of your supplier database

Data ages rapidly. 30 to 40% of the data in your database changes annually. Businesses relocate, merge or change their names and contact persons change jobs. Containing more than 200 million records, D&B's business database is the largest in the world and enables you to improve the quality of your data and optimise data management. D&B can help you normalise, rationalise, standardise, update, enhance and maintain your data and remove duplicate records. Duplicate data and inaccurate data are deleted. Moreover, your data are updated, organised and enhanced with valuable, additional D&B information. Using a single, clean, accounts payable master database enables you to work more efficiently, optimise your purchasing processes and make cost-savings.


  • Implementation ERP system

    The success or failure of a well-implemented ERP system depends on the quality of the entered data. Cleansing and maintaining the data enables you to get the best out of your system.

  • Consolidation

    The first step in discovering possibilities for consolidation in your supplier database is to have clean, complete, accurate and up to date data.

  • Invoices paid twice

    Do you have several supplier databases and are they maintained by several people? In that case, it is likely that there are duplicates in your database with the risk that invoices are paid twice.

  • Integrate supplier files

    You soon lose your overview if you work with different supplier databases. Create one central, vendor master database containing all relevant information.
