All data erodes, there is no avoiding the fact; people move home, emigrate, they marry, divorce and die, they might even change their name for no apparent reason. Data also becomes suspect when transferred from one format or medium to another. All these factors contribute to the erosion of data and the only way to combat the problem is ‘data cleansing’.
Smartlink Alumni is powerful data cleansing service created specifically for development professionals within schools, colleges and universities. The service allows educational establishments to reconnect with their lost alumni by cleansing existing data, enabling the continuity of communication between institutions and past students. The process will identify which members are contactable at the address details you hold, flag deceased individuals and provide forwarding addresses for home movers.
We also provide an additional service for the sector – Phonematch Alumni, we can both append new contact numbers and verify that those you hold are valid and live. We hold millions of consented landline and mobile telephone numbers to utilise within the process.
