Thoughts on technology and innovation

One of the biggest complaints we hear from AMS (association management system) users is the quality or state of their database in regards to duplicates. Sometimes these duplicates are a minor nuisance because they are temporary. While there are other situations where duplicates are an epidemic and have infected the entire AMS where the AMS is almost in a state of being non functional.
Keeping your AMS from a duplicate epidemic is a simple task … regular duplicate management. I know that everyone works differently and each association has their own business process for managing duplicates (if your association does not have a business process for managing duplicates, you are probably getting closer to a duplicate epidemic than you realize). But there are key principles in duplicate management that are simple common sense that every association should be able to follow.
