  • Poor data recovery
  • Lack of validation of integrated data in management solutions
  • Duplicates
  • Natural ageing of data (2% per month)
    • Relocation
    • Bankruptcy
    • Change of activity
    • Legal, fiscal, financial changes...

For the company impact on functional projects

  • expected benefits of projects in CRM, ERP, e-commerce,… overestimated

HOW DOES IT WORK?

 

 

 

  • 1. SCAN THE WEB - WEB DATA EXTRACTING

     

    ANALYSING THE WEB INTELLIGENTLY

    There are many data mining solutions and very few of them are efficient. Email-Brokers has developed its own, which is made to measure, and reflects the quality required.
    This solution is designed to recognise official data but much more besides. Verifying data – such as details of a company’s headquarters, an activity or telephone number -, needs context to be provided for the information being extracted and it also needs to provide more than is strictly necessary.
    The more you harvest and structure the information, the more markers you will have to verify the data that is ultimately being targeted.

    From its dedicated servers, with its specific algorithms, Email-Brokers collects billions of items of data each day and structures them in its database. Email-Brokers also has the ability to modify its algorithms at any time to identify new pieces of data.

    EXAMPLE OF EXTRACTING CONTEXTUALISED DATA

    How can you find out if a company practices e-commerce?
    In B-to-B, for example, when there is no online payment where can one identify oneself on a client extranet?

    Our algorithm scans the sites in search of over 90 markers for this single piece of information: secure pages, redirection towards payment solution, search for specific key words on the pages or URLs, etc.

    During the qualification phase, these 90 markers verify whether there is e-commerce, what type, what payment method, etc.

    DATABASE AS A RESULT OF MINING

    After this initial stage, Email-brokers has vast quantities of pre-sorted, still raw, non-qualified and non-standardised data at its disposal. This will be processed during a second stage.

     

 

 

 

  • 2. CHECK, QUALIFY & STANDARDISE - THE GENERATOR

     

    LINKS AT THE HEART OF THE REACTOR

    This application has been developed especially and operates outside of the web. It is structured around powerful algorithms and exists to:

    • Standardise data into a single format,
    • Qualify data thanks in particular to the contextual information extracted,
    • Attribute a confidence level to each piece of data.

    LINKS IS INSPIRED BY THE MOST ADVANCED QUANTITIVE AND QUALITATIVE DATA ANALYSIS METHODOLOGIES.

    Example database:

    • Eliminate aberrant data
    • Correct spelling errors
    • Reduce bias
    • Etc.


    EXAMPLE OF STANDARDISATION

    For telephone numbers, all numbers are formatted according to a single format of the type 00331271254960.

    The application will:

    • Harmonise the 0033, +33, 02, 2,…
    • Clean up the /, spaces, dashes, hyphens,…
    • Rule out the numbers that don’t conform to the format as they are incomplete, foreign,…
    • Recognise the mobile phone numbers which will need specific validation
    • Etc.


    EXAMPLE OF QUALIFICATION

    Among the email addresses extracted from a site, the application “Links” is capable of:

    • Identifying official addresses on which to contact the company that are much more varied than contact@... or info@...
    • Recognising generic addresses of the main services: HR, recruitment, IT, marketing,…
    • Isolating the personal addresses for managerial staff and directors (pierre@...) which must undergo specific technological and legal processing.


    OTHER EXAMPLES OF QUALIFICATION

    • Thanks to the contextual data extracted during phase 1, it is possible to identify the different sites or headquarters from among the other addresses: distributors, parent company, partners,…
    • The effective and genuine activities of a company are not necessarily those declared on the official company register. Email-Brokers is set to identify it through semantic analysis of the job profiles, by examining key words, the website’s title, etc.
    • Websites with the suffix “.fr” belonging to foreign-owned companies will be treated separately.
    • Etc.

    AS PART OF THIS PROCESS, A CONFIDENCE LEVEL IS ATTACHED TO EACH ITEM OF DATA

    Only data that is judged to be trustworthy via an indicator system will be approved.

    Data that is irregular, subject to risk or conflict will either be ruled out immediately or will undergo subsequent checks.

    DATA IS DEEMED TRUSTWORTHY IF IT MEETS THE FOLLOWING 7 CRITERIA…

     

 

 

 

  • 3. HUMAN CHECK - OUTSOURCING

     

    HUMAN CHECKS

    Any data that is missing or that does not reach the required quality coefficient will be required to undergo a further stage of certification.

    It shall be subject to a human, manual check.

    This stage is carried out in partnership with a number of approved companies.

     

 

 

 

  • 4. FINAL INTEGRATION - LAST STEP BEFORE PRODUCTION

     

    ALL DATA IS VALIDATED AND CERTIFIED BEFORE BEING INCORPORATED INTO THE DATABASES

 

 

 

  • 5. MONITORING & UPDATING - THE VIRTUOUS CIRCLE

     

    CONTINUOUS QUALITY CONTROL

    Our data is regularly used by our clients, on average 5 to 6 times per month.

    We also subject to monthly monitoring (see Step #1).

    This means we are able to guarantee frequent updates.
