London, 26 February 2014

GBG, a global leader in Identity Intelligence, is pleased to announce a new version of its top-selling global data quality management product, Matchcode Batch, specifically configured for bulk data quality processing and cleansing, and enterprise wide Master Data Management (MDM) projects. In a global MDM market worth more than US$1.6 billion each year1, implementing Matchcode Batch will enable organistions to consolidate and enrich enterprise wide data and reduce operational costs. The solution helps removes the obstacle of poor data, which according to Gartner is draining the average company about US$8.2 million annually2

Working with end-user clients involved in cross border trade and dealing with multiple language character sets, GBGroup has been a global pioneer in creating a data management solution that help organisations record, validate and enhance the identity information of customers. In supporting customers that are seeking to proactively manage data decay and standardise data, GBGroup's Matchcode suite offers the ability to validate and enhance customer names and addresses, including complex data sets handling and transliteration functionality.

Uniquely, Matchcode is the only software available to provide address, email, mobile and landline validation and geocoding for more than 240 territories or countries worldwide for both web and local installation.

Designed for projects involved in enterprise wide Master Data Management, Matchcode Batch is intuitive to use, offering unrivalled processing power that can handle more than seven million unstructured global records in less than an hour.  The latest version delivers faster processing, checks for address, email, landline and mobile data, and enhanced security and monitoring for usage tracking.

David Green, Director of ID Registration says; "Matchcode Batch is the preferred bulk data processing solution for the overwhelming majority of the data bureaus in the UK as they need to process tens of millions of records in only a few hours and verify the widest range of complex international data. The growing list of clients include leading bureaus such as The Software Bureau, Blue Sheep, HelpIT, Transactis, SKYIQ and Acquity Customer Insight. We are greatly encouraged by the excitement surrounding this new version of Matchcode, aimed at helping serve the global organisation with Data Quality (DQ) and Master Data Management solutions".

Partnering with specialist data management and convergence organisations such as Loqate, Uniserv and Semarchy has enabled a global reach, and when linked with other GBGroup solutions such as ID3global, the company is well placed to work with organisations with cross border ambitions. Matchcode is the chosen solution of leading international companies like Ford, Volvo, Barclays Bank and Nectar Italia.
