How Melissa Global eIDV Profile Check Works

3 Key Differentiators


We are the Address Experts

Melissa’s 37+ years in address intelligence and data quality expertise is built into each verification layer we offer.

Our Data Quality Intelligence is Unmatched

Melissa is the only eIDV service that employs a data quality verification layer. We don’t simply match a name to a static list. We verify each piece of the identity puzzle in real time before it gets passed to the next step. This not only ensures the customer data is accurate, which has a multitude of benefits in itself, but also reduces the number of false positives and negatives that are returned while increasing matching rates.


Each Verification Layer Has a Dedicated Engine

Each layer has its own dedicated engine for correcting, parsing, and understanding names and addresses. We have the unique advantage of having separate data quality tools built into an all-in-one eIDV service. These crucial data quality abilities are missing from other identity verification solutions, but are absolutely integral to increase the matching accuracy.
