Interface changes: What are the benefits?
We have increased the number of data validation checks provided in the Monthly Interface. This will help you to correct more of your data in month and reduce queries from the Scheme Administrator. If you are using the Standard or Manual interface you will benefit from the following enhancements:
- Improved Errors and Warnings validation report (which will now be known as the Data Validation Report (DVR)).
- Improved management information provided to you, following submission of your Monthly Interface file.
- Alignment of data validations with wider work to cleanse scheme data. It will support compliance with current Data Protection and the forthcoming General Data Protection regulations.
Together, the enhancements will help to improve the quality of data the scheme holds for its members and in turn, improve member experience.
