    A simple data entry mistake can cause numerous errors including duplicate records, inventory discrepancies, and invalid shots. Prevent these problems by double-checking your data entry for mistakes before you hit SUBMIT.

    Real-time data exchange allows for instant reporting and tracking of shot data. It eliminates double data entry—reducing the chance for errors. As of June 30, 2019, all providers will need to be using real-time interfaces.

    If you aren't already using a real-time interface, check with your software provider about switching to real-time data exchange. Transition times can take months—act now!
