Business Situation

ECS helps their clients deliver highly-targeted, personalized marketing campaigns by using various data.

Like many direct marketing organizations, ECS relies on being able to match data from disparate sources but faced numerous challenges with the raw data not always being accurate, or in usable formats. ECS requires address data to be verified and standardized, before accurately matching that data with other datasets.

Using a third-party vendor to do the matching on hundreds of thousands of records would take, on average, about three business days to turn around.

Our Solution

ECS was seeking to bring the entire process in-house while avoiding the need for dedicated coding staff and steep learning curves. After looking at several solutions, ECS decided that DataMatch Enterprise™ with Address Verification would answer all their needs in one solution.

Immense time and cost savings

Increase accuracy

Administrative flexibility


Efficient Standardization

Instead of taking three days to complete matching, using DataMatch Enterprise™ ECS can verify and standardize addresses, and match records to other datasets in less than a day.

Higher Match Rate

In terms of accuracy, they are seeing a 24% higher match rate than their previous vendors’ standard match rate and can “dive under the hood” to adjust algorithms themselves without the expense of dedicated coders.

Increase Marketing ROI

While they haven’t yet fully quantified the return on their investment, it is estimated to be in hundreds of thousands of dollars.
