Tracesmart, one of the UK’s leading consumer data specialists, provides people tracing, identity verification and data cleansing solutions to a large and diverse range of companies and sectors. It is also one of a small number of companies to receive a weekly update of the Disclosure of Death Registration Information as supplied by the Registrars General. This information, along with Tracesmart’s vast consumer database, drives the company’s powerful proprietary facility ‘Existence Alert’ which uniquely fulfills Origo’s requirements for its data matching service.
Commenting on the continuing partnership, Paul Pettitt, Managing Director of Origo said, “Our Data Matching service provides the financial services industry with a very cost-effective way to improve the accuracy of customer data. It enables millions of pounds worth of savings through reduced annuity write-offs and release of reserves, and reuniting customers with their accounts and policies by tracing ‘gone away’ customers who have moved from their last known address. This service further underlines Origo’s industry role to address common cost and efficiency issues, and by partnering with Tracesmart, we are well positioned to offer a ‘best of breed’ solution to an ongoing industry issue.”
Following the agreement update, Mike Trezise, Tracesmart’s Managing Director, commented, “We are extremely proud of our ongoing partnership with Origo. Our relationship is based on close collaboration and interaction with Origo’s Data Matching service customers by way of regular user groups, providing a strong platform to deliver a range of intuitive products. We are delighted to be continuing our association, and will continue to work hard, to invest heavily in relevant and current consumer data to further prolong our alliance.”
