Available Personator Solutions

Personator solutions chart: Check, Verify, Append, Move, Update, and Demographics

  1. Personator Check

    Personator Check allows you to pass in a name, address, phone number, and email address as one record (the record does not need to include all of those inputs, any combination of them, or even just one is sufficient) for parsing, validation and correction. This action is available for both U.S. and Canada contacts.

    Personator Check provides the following capabilities:
    • Parse, standardize and validate address, email, name and phone info
    • Geocode addresses with latitude and longitude coordinates to the rooftop (delivery point) level
    • Make Advanced Address Corrections (AAC) using name input to correct and append data to an address including correcting or adding house numbers, city, state and ZIP code data
  2. Personator Verify

    Personator Verify compares different groups of data in the record to a centric group defined by the user (i.e. matching a name to an address). It verifies the record as a whole, confirming whether each group of data coincides with the centric piece of data in the Melissa Data Knowledge Base. You can define fields like address, phone number, or email as the centric data against which other groups of data are compared. Personator Verify is only available for U.S. addresses.

  3. Personator Append

    Personator Append allows you to enrich U.S. contact records by adding missing information like name, company name, address, email and phone based on the selected point of centricity.
