The recently launched service allows alumni records to be verified, lost members to be located to their new address and the socio-economic profile of the entire database to be established. This provides institutions with the opportunity to invite past students to events, tailor correspondence and target potential major donors.
On completion of the cleansing process, alumni records are segregated into verified, unverified, gone away, traced and deceased, allowing alumni administrators to minimize wastage. New contact numbers can also be appended via Tracesmart’s Phonematch Alumni product. These screening services are available within Tracesmart’s online portal, Smartcleanse or as a managed solution.
Smartcleanse is a newly launched online data cleansing bureau that caters for many markets and is at the cutting edge of data management. The online service provides a highly secure and easy-to-use portal that enables Tracesmart clients to maintain and cleanse their data themselves and in their own time. Following a recent data cleansing exercise, Cardiff Metropolitan University’s Director of Development, Andrew Walker stated, “With a mailing list of around 30,000 magazines every year, we have to be confident that the data we hold on our former students is correct. Tracesmart identified and updated a large number of invalid addresses within our database, ensuring our magazines were delivered to the right alumni to the right place, generating considerable savings.”
