Trillium Software Adds Customer Data Verification and Enrichment

Syncsort

Trillum Software started doing customer data quality and identity resolution in 1994, back when it mostly involved postal addresses. The business was purchased last November by data management software specialist Syncsort. Trillium has just released a new Data-as-a-Service solution that adds validation, verification, and enrichment of email, phone, postal, and IP addresses to its postal and geocoding, data cleansing and matching features. The new service can verify personal data such as postal address or phone number, or add similar information if it’s missing. It can be accessed through a published API or through existing connectors for Salesforce.com and Microsoft Dynamics CRM.
