When you are responsible for managing an act database it takes careful thought, planning and goal setting.
Depending on the size and scope of your act database this can be a very complex matter. When I say complex, I don’t mean complex from the point of view of doing chemistry or algebra. It is complex because it requires a little bit of time and thought. All of my experience has been that many of the businesses that use act usually don’t have all the time in the day to do this type of planning.
Frankly, you have to find the time. Why? Because it is worth it to you and your company or organization.
