Company Name Matching Get Company Match Similarity Key API


Description:
Company/Organization name data can be inconsistent, making redundant data difficult to track down or match (GE, Gen Electric, G.E., etc.). This API provides a hashed similarity key from the input data used to match with other similar company name data. Use the generated similarity key, rather than the actual data itself, to match and/or sort company name data to identify inconsistently represented company and organization name data. This avoids the problems of data inconsistency, misspellings, and name variations when matching within a single dataset or across multiple data sources. See benefits of data matching.

Heuristics, phonetics, specific knowledge bases, categorization hierarchies, contextual machine learning, and other various algorithms are used as the basis of our similarity key generation.

You can choose from multiple matching algorithms, "wide", "medium", and "narrow". "Wide" will find a greater number of matches, but may also find similarly-spelled false positives. "Narrow" will result in tighter matching requirements, but then may miss a few matches. Your business case will dictate which algorithm is ideal.


Example of generated similarity keys. The names that show the same similarity key are "similar" records.
