Next Generation Cloud Service to Correct & Complete Contact Data

Personator goes beyond contact data validation and performs cutting-edge Data Quality Uplift, which cross-references the validity of the data by verifying the customer record is deliverable, and that names correspond to address, email, and telephone data. Personator I.D. verification helps prevent fraud by validating contact information in real-time.

Personator also adds missing data to complete your contact records. For instance:

  • You have an address: Personator appends name, phone, email & geocode
  • You have a phone number: Personator appends name, address email & geocode
  • You have an email address: Personator appends name, address, phone & geocode

Personator can also provide you with the new address of people and companies that have moved.

Personator is built for both Enterprise and E-Commerce Businesses. It is flexible and robust enough to correct and gain insight from silos of customer data, making it appropriate for both large-scale businesses and e-commerce retailers trying to verify contact data at the point-of-entry. In a world of “big data,” Personator goes beyond validation and updates customer records to their most complete form.


E-commerce businesses depend on accurate contact data to be successful. Whether a company is engaged in electronic retailing, data warehousing or business intelligence, achieving a unique, accurate record of the customer is the ultimate goal.

E-commerce operations benefit from Personator’s cutting edge point-of-entry full-contact data validation.
