Melissa’s BusinessCoder Cloud Service accesses a multisource dataset of over 25 million U.S. businesses & 40 million contacts providing comprehensive firmographic data on companies and organizations. This service helps you resolve business entities for standardization and record consolidation, plus it provides a wealth of fundamental characteristics about a business that can be utilized for decision making, lead scoring and optimized B2B marketing and sales efforts.
The way company names are entered into a system can vary widely, making it a prime pain point for deduplication efforts. For instance, a CRM may have the following company names: “Toyota Motors USA Corporation”, “Toyota Motors U.S.A.”, “Toyota Motor Corp.”, and “TMC”. BusinessCoder can normalize all of these business names to one entity: “Toyota Motors Corporation”. Resolving multiple similar business names to one golden standard provides data standardization that is key for successful deduplication and record matching efforts, and it helps reduce the creation of duplicative accounts as data is entered by sales and marketing teams.
