Data matching and deduplication

Identify duplicate records in real-time

Contact data is growing at an exponential rate every day. More information is being collected now than ever before.

However, in order to gain a holistic view of a customer (i.e. single customer view), you need to connect data across all channels and systems.

Experian Data Quality understands how challenging it is to analyze and discover linkages within your customer data. For this reason, we built a data matching and deduplication solution that does the hard work for you.

We offer data matching software that discovers intelligent links among your customer records. By finding connections between data elements, the tool quickly removes all duplicates from your database.

This software operates through a powerful matching engine that retrieves records regardless of keyboard errors, missing words, extra words, nicknames, or multicultural name variations.

Its robust architecture allows for customization of matching criteria, searching techniques, integration approaches, phonetic algorithms, rule sets, and more.

See how data matching and deduplication through merge purge makes sense of your data and creates a 360-degree view of your database.

Do you have a CRM or database that you think has duplicate contacts?

We offer a free data quality report that allows you to see the percentage of duplicate contacts that exist within you database before buying a deduplication tool. You can upload a list of contacts (either a sample or your whole database) and we will process your file and tell you the percentage of duplicate contacts that exists.

You can interpret the report yourself, or we can provide you with a data quality expert to assist you. After you have looked over your results, you can purchase the full report, which specifies the exact entries which have been flagged as duplicates. This allos you to see the effectiveness of our merge purge software.
