Home Screen & Scheduler

The Perfect & Merge Home Screen provides an overview of previously run match sessions. It is also home to the scheduler which is an optional module allowing you to:

* Schedule sessions at times of your choosing

  • This module also allows for chaining of deduplication sessions so that high certainty matches can be auto-mastered and merged, leaving ambiguous duplicates for semi-automated perfection, or manual review
  • Users to choose from a range of automation options for duplicate detection and then subsequent automated processing which:
    • Saves time manually reviewing records
    • Increases productivity by automating repeatable processes and humanising the exceptions
    • Improves control by choosing what processes are executed when and in what sequence
