Why do I need to map columns?

InsideView will attempt to automatically map your columns based on your labeled headers.  It’s important to review the auto-mapping prior to analysis to ensure accuracy.

What are the minimum required fields for a diagnose report?

While InsideView only requires a company name, we recommend including the following fields for a greater level of accuracy:

  • Company Name
  • Company URL
  • Street Address
  • City
  • State
  • Country
  • ZIP/Postal Code
  • Industry
  • Revenue
  • Employees

How do I map missing fields?

When a .CSV file is imported the application automatically maps identified headers.  If a column header is not automatically mapped the application will highlight it in red (see screenshot below).  Simply click on the magnifying glass and search for the correct field, then click it.

How does InsideView calculate Duplicate, Inaccurate, Incomplete?

InsideView algorithms match against company inputs provided. Once a match is made, we apply the following sequence.

  1. Identify duplicates company names
  2. Identify records with inaccurate data
  3. Identify records with missing data

The three categories combined will equal the total % of data cleaned.  For example, if you submit a sample file of 1000 records and we match 70%. Our application will analyze and breakout in the following order: 10% duplicates, 40% inaccurate, 20% incomplete = 70%

How are Duplicates determined?

Duplicates are calculated on Exact Match of Company Name. If same company name is listed multiple times but different location input data is provided, upon match they’re not considered duplicates.

How are Inaccurate records determined?

Upon Company Match, any field level input that we identify has different than InsideView dataset. The fields analyzed for inaccuracy include the following: Company Name,Website,City, State, Country, Revenue, and Employee Count.

How are Incomplete records determined?

Any record that doesn’t have value for the following fields is considered as incomplete: The fields analyzed for incompleteness include the following: Company Name,Website,City, State, Country, Revenue, and Employee Count.

What is the Industry and Company Profile section in the results?

The industry and company profile sections of the results summarize your top industries and companies based on number of employees and annual revenue. 

Industry breakdown is based on InsideView’s industry mapping structure.
