Hands down, the "Unique Upload" Function
Our clients send us their CRM data in pretty much any format you could ever imagine.
After cleaning it all up, so it matches our metadata and can actually be uploaded, the last thing I want to do is run a bunch of VLOOKUPs against our existing data to make sure I'm not creating any duplicates.
Fortunately, Unique Upload automates this.
All that you have to do is upload a file, choose the matching criteria, and viola - RingLead sends you an email in minutes with 2 different files.
One has the matched records and their SFDC IDs, the other has the unmatched records.
Must have tool if you're importing mass amounts of data on a regular basis and don't want to create duplicates.
Don't let the clunky looking UI fool you, incredibly innovative company & tool.
We mainly use Unique Upload & Unique Entry in SFDC but I know there are tons of other very helpful features provided by RingLead that I have access to, but still haven't explored.
Must have for anyone working with data coming from 3+ different sources.
Preventing duplicate records & the monotonous process required to do so.
While you can build excel functions to do some of the features RingLead provides, that's only going to get you so far; RingLead provides it all when it comes to ensuring data quality.
