EdgeRed's collaboration with Macsim in addressing data accuracy challenges

EdgeRed x Macsim

1. Context and Background


EdgeRed was engaged by Macsim Fastening Systems to address challenges related to data accuracy within their extensive customer database.


With operations spanning Australia and New Zealand, Macsim required a dependable dataset to support their sales, logistics, finance, and marketing functions effectively.


2. Introduction to Macsim


Macsim, a prominent supplier in the construction industry, has long been a cornerstone in Australia, offering a diverse array of fastening supplies to businesses nationwide. Renowned for their commitment to quality and reliability, Macsim aimed to further enhance their position by harnessing data analytics to optimise their purchasing strategies.


3. Tech Stack


EdgeRed's strategy was comprehensive and multifaceted. By employing data analytics, we first identified customers who were no longer active. We then harnessed the capabilities of the Google Maps Geocoding API to verify and correct existing addresses and to append new, accurate address details where they were missing. The final step was a thorough cleanse of the existing address data to ensure consistency and precision.
