Gryphon SVP Eric Esfahanian: Accuracy Is Paramount


It’s surprising how much inaccurate data lives in many CRM systems, observed Eric Esfahanian, SVP of Gryphon Networks. “CRM is naturally a good source for analytics and sales intelligence if the data that lives within your CRM is automated, accurate, and something that you can reliably make decisions from,” he said. The best way to ensure that data collected is accurate is to “get away from the manual entry aspects of logging activity into CRM. The more you can automate the process, the more accurate and more complete the data is going to be.”

New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman on Thursday announced a deal that would require Uber to encrypt geolocation information about its riders, as well as enhance its data security practices. The AG opened an investigation into Uber in 2014, in response to allegations that the service had tracked riders and displayed their locations in an aerial format, known internally as the “God View.” The AG’s office opened another investigation early last year, after Uber notified it that an unauthorized third-party had accessed drivers’ data.
