Buying Data: Price vs Quality

Buying Data: Price vs. Quality

While a low price per hit sounds nice, if the data provider returns an abundance of non-performing or inaccurate data, your return on investment isn’t going to look as fiscally responsible. So, what wins… price or quality?

Tip 4: Evaluate Cost per RPC – Not Just Price Per Hit

In this example, you can see how price-per-hit and RPC rate make a major difference to your invoice and your performance.

Price vs Quality Data

Using cost-per-RPC, a vendor with higher pricing may still be a better option if their RPC-to-hit ratio is higher. When multiple vendors are used, give priority to the vendor that returns the lowest cost per RPC to reduce overall skip tracing spend.
