Duplicate Elimination (de-dupe) and Merge/Purge Software
With the ever increasing demands being placed on direct marketing professionals, such as tighter deadlines, increasing postage and higher printing costs, accurately eliminating duplicate records from your database and mailings is crucial to your bottom line – that's why running quality merge/purge software is so important.
Anchor Software’s MaxDup is a powerful and flexible merge/purge software system that handles multiple record types, capturing even the most complicated matches in the default one-pass method or in multiple passes of your file(s). This incredible flexibility allows you to easily eliminate duplicates in your mailings, consolidate important customer data and improve your overall marketing performance.
Using this all-in-one system, MaxDup will identify duplicate records at an individual, household or company level based upon your specific criteria and can consolidate data from multiple records into a single survivor record.
Less experienced users new to Merge/Purge systems and duplicate elimination processes can now get quality results while the more experienced can fine tune the duplicate strategies for more control of their jobs. Whether your data is simple or complex, a Merge/Purge application is only as effective as its matching logic. MaxDup has powerful matching logic that will identify duplicates on consumer and/or business records using matching criteria you select from an easy-to-use menu of options. Go beyond simple name and address comparison, and incorporate additional data that may aid in determining matches across several different files. Any data on your file, such as Social Security Number, gender or telephone number, may be included in the duplicate identification process.
