Match Studio, a user-friendly administrative interface, shows the explanations for the match score and enables non-technical, domain experts to see the effect of parameter changes in real time on match scores. Through Match Studio, users can modify match behavior to optimize accuracy for their data profile or risk policy, such as reducing the penalty for a missing name component or giving greater weight to a name than a date of birth.

Intelligent Record Matching
