5 Reasons to Choose matchIT SQL

 

Let's cut to the chase. It takes work to Test Drive a data quality tool and you don’t want to waste your time. So what you really want to know is why you should try matchIT SQL before any other solution. Well here it is.

One Engine. Multiple Techniques.

  • KEYWORD IDENTIFICATION
    • Business name matching requires specific logic to detect the primary words (e.g. The State Farm Insurance Company of California matching against State Farm), and understand the similarity between words e.g. “Auto” and “Motors”, “Bijouterie” and “Jewelerie”.
  • NON-PHONETIC FUZZY MATCHING
    • to match keying errors and transpositions (such as Wilson and Wislon) and reading errors (such as Morton and Horton).
  • ELEMENT MATCHING
    • to match names with elements missing or reversed (e.g. Mr JR Gonzalez, Jose Gonzalez Jr and Gonzalez Jose).
  • NON-STANDARDIZED STRINGS AND WORDS
    • to match data in different languages, strings abbreviated in different ways, and/or hyphenated strings. (For example: The Haque and den Haag, Brussel & Bruxelles, Street & St, Stra8e & Str.)
  • PHONETIC MATCHING
    • to match names that sound the same such as Dayton and Deighton, or sound similar like Hammer and Hanna.
  • NAME LEXICONS
    • to match names such as Bill and William.
  • ACRONYM AND INITIAL MATCHING
    • to match inconsistencies like Bill and W. (e.g. Bill Deighton and Mr. W. Dayton), and The University of North Carolina and UNC.
  • RELOCATION OF DATA IN THE INCORRECT FIELD
    • to allow for e.g. names in address lines, postal code in the city field, P.O. Box number in the street field, city, state, postal code combined in one field.

 

More True Matches. Fewer False Matches.

  • THE matchIT API MATCHES ENTIRE RECORDS
    • using all available data to determine potential matches
  • THE matchIT API STANDARDIZES & PARSES RECORDS BEFORE MATCHING
    • so records with inconsistent format, transposed or even missing data can still be compared
  • THE matchIT API WORKS TO UNDERSTAND THE PRONUNCIATION OF THE NAME
    • by converting names, companies and even streets into sophisticated phonetic equivalents
  • THE matchIT API INTELLIGENTLY SCORES RECORDS
    • so you can confidently automate some processes and leave only low scoring matches for manual review
