Data Matching

How Data Matching works

By finding connections between data elements, such as name and address, our data matching software quickly removes all duplicates from your database. It has a powerful matching engine that identifies linked or similar records that contain keyboard errors, missing words, extra words, nicknames or multicultural name variations.

Experian Data Quality’s data matching software uses fuzzy matching and multicultural intelligence to find similarities within personal and business data sets. Unlike other products that look for exact matches, we use multiple search algorithms in order to find the most matches possible regardless of exact spelling or sequencing.
