Vancity Savings Credit Union is a values-based financial co-operative serving the needs of its more than 509,000 member-owners and their communities. They are currently engaged in a technology project that involves data migration.
As is typical, data migration efforts are significant in that inconsistencies, anomalies, and incompatibilities in the data need to be reviewed and cleansed before, during, and after migration.
Vancity needed people who were precise, trustworthy, competent, and able to concentrate for long periods of time.
In late 2015, Focus Professional Services Inc. [Focus] was contracted to provide a team of three Data Technicians, individuals on the autism spectrum.
After Vancity provided training on their data systems, Focus proceeded to review and cleanse the data. The Focus team rapidly proved their abilities for speed, accuracy, and perseverance in reviewing and cleansing the data and quickly moved on to more challenging data quality activities.
With the assistance of the Focus PS Data Technicians, Vancity is ahead of its pre-migration data quality schedule.
