- Data Quality
Multi Channel Verification
Unlike any other UK data provider our information is never more than 12 months old. As part of this process we physically call over 170,000 businesses every month.
Our data is validated against the Royal Mail Postal Address File (PAF) and checked against the most recent ‘gone away’ files to ensure accuracy.
The data is then compared against all other information files held by our data bureau to make certain it is both accurate and complete.
Checks and Verifications
At IDG we understand that business data comes in all shapes and forms, which is why we operate three separate levels of checks and verifications.
We check the company name and telephone number directly to guarantee accuracy. A follow up call will then be made for complete verification.
The type of industry the company works in, employee size and email verification will all be carried out for a more detailed data analysis.
For a thorough breakdown, IDG will confirm all direct marketing information, company address and the job title of all contacts.
Checks and Verifications
For complete peace of mind we write our quality guarantees into our Terms & conditions, something no other B2B data company does.
