Mastering Product Data with Semantic and Machine Learning

ProductMatch™ helps you make sense of unstructured product data in a visual, highly intuitive manner. Using machine learning for effective attribute extraction and product matching, ProductMatch™ can recognize and transform complex product data from disparate sources. The platform is specifically designed to uncover hidden relationships, learn from past experiences with machine learning, and create hierarchical categorization on top of unstructured data. The end result is a clean and consistent view of your product data that helps optimize business spend, maximize profit margins, and enhance operational efficiency.

How It Works

Making Human Decisions at Computer Speed

Product and item data has ever been the bane of data quality platforms, requiring manual effort to accurately make sense and bring structure to it. With ProductMatch, experience human decisions at computer speed. Data Ladder’s advanced semantic recognition technology processes product data at lightning speeds from disparate data sources, understands its context, and helps you make decisions easily by accurately matching, categorizing, and naturally deriving complex product hierarchies. From cleanup to consolidation, ProductMatch will get your data right.

From Product Data Cleanup to Governance

Unstructured data, unfortunately, brings a lack of clarity and can become unmanageable very quickly. This can leave customers without the important information they need to conduct business in a smart manner. From PIM or ERP initial loads, to migrations, ad-hoc clean-ups, to searching, and governance, ProductMatch gets your unstructured data right. By performing simple point-and-click actions, you can consolidate, clean, categorize, and classify your product data. The platform’s integrated governance capabilities for data stewards and product specialists ensure product data management becomes part of enterprise processes to derive valuable business insights without fail.

Simplifying Attribute-Rich Data

Perfect for those working in distribution, manufacturing, retailing, and sourcing, ProductMatch simplifies the job of knowledge workers dealing with attribute-rich data. Import your product data and let ProductMatch extract attributes, derive complex hierarchies, and categorize unstandardized product data based on business rules that you define. Our smart approach lets you structure your data by looking at patterns in syntax or keywords that appear frequently to create patterns to search and parse out unstructured data quickly, easily, and in bulk. Product data that is usable will improve operational efficiencies to maximize sales and provide a better experience for customers.

Automate Complex Classifications

From medical coding standards like ICD-10 to global products and services classifications systems like UNSPSC, ProductMatch helps make sense of unstructured data by applying context to it using our world-class semantic technology. The software derives hierarchies quickly and easily by identifying parent-child relationships in your data, matching attributes and categories accurately and efficiently, and processing massive amounts of information quickly. Group your data in as many levels as you want with our unmatched matching capabilities, and create complex, multitiered classifications with ease.

Affordable and Easy to Use

ProductMatch costs 90% less than comparable solutions and is easy to use for the first-time user unfamiliar with data quality tools. Whether you’re a marketing director piecing together market research data for a product launch, or a catalog manager maintaining large volumes of product data, ProductMatch offers seamless integration and management of the most intricate data. Automate the creation of reliable data for businesses with Data Ladder’s semantic technology that translates unstructured data into standardized information for use across the enterprise.

  • Intuitive, Visual Interface: Data Ladder provides a modern, visual interface proven to improve attribute extraction, standardization, structuring, and match accuracy by at least 10%.

It is then compared against a list of valid addresses to determine validity. You also have the ability to enhance each matching address and add ZIP+4 level latitude and longitude values for the best in mapping precision.

Check the validity and deliverability of a physical mailing address with our updated data quality technology. DataMatch Enterprise Server Edition comes equipped with address validation and geocoding technology, which helps standardize your address lists for mailings. Standardization converts an address to a standard format by correcting the address and adding missing information (such as a zip code or a suffix).

Geocoder Latitude and Longitude

Geocoding provides the geographical coordinates for a specific address or location. Whether you need to analyze intelligence data or visualize distance, there are numerous applications of this very important tool. Our geocoding module provides exact latitude and longitude, along with census tract and block group information for each deliverable address in your database. You can also perform distance calculations based on a ZIP+4™.

  • Add Latitude/Longitude coordinates to your address lists at the ZIP+4 level.
  • Add latitude and longitude coordinates carried out the 6th decimal.
  • Provide county name and county FIPS code to the ZIP+4 level.
  • Add street-segment points.

Canadian Address Verification

DataMatch Enterprise + Address Verification Software also comes equipped with address validation for Canadian addresses. DMES will identify, validate, and correct addresses, and will format the results to the preferred standard for Canada Post.

  • Address look up from a postal code, or the ability to view addresses by fields such as province or municipality.
  • Capable of handling individual address fields or free format input and Integrates with existing applications and systems.
  • Deciphers linguistic and regional language preferences.
  • Corrects all types of Canadian addresses.
