RPA's work helps the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs to encourage a thriving farming and food sector and strong rural communities.
RPA makes Common Agricultural Policy support payments, traces livestock and carries out inspections. They manage over 40 schemes, paying farmers and traders more than £2 billion each year. To administer such a wide range of schemes and meet EU requirements they manage information on more than two million land parcels.
The organisation holds data on many customers across multiple disparate systems and selected VisionWare's MultiVue to create the single customer view. They required a solution that would improve data quality, introduce better data governance and integrate their customer data to provide an accurate, trusted single customer index.
MultiVue provides the strategic Master Data Management (MDM) platform required, is easy to implement and can be rolled out in a matter of weeks, providing a faster ROI.
RPA will use MultiVue to review and consolidate customer data with a goal of creating a centralised dataset of 'golden' customer records. This includes elements such as data validation and data quality checks required to create this accurate list of customers.
MultiVue will also be utilised to address the use and propagation of the 'golden' record throughout RPA and its partner Agencies, ensuring the most accurate customer information is available to anyone regardless of the system or interface used to access the data.
Ed Schofield, Information and Technology Director, RPA said: "Improving information technology is a key part of our Five Year Plan and this contract will help us create a 'golden' record for each customer… We wanted a system like MultiVue that was easy to configure and use and have been impressed that in just three weeks, we had connected two systems and were already starting to analyse the data."
