How we offer a deeper, richer and more accurate view of customers

Extensive Data Universe

Our data universe comprises datapoints from billions of public and proprietary consumer records, giving an accurate, near-complete account of the UK adult population. And we regularly append – not replace – our records with fresh data, ensuring a complete and accurate record of the customer, over time.

Advanced Linking

We ensure high levels of data record accuracy by using our proprietary statistical linking capability to match and connect disparate data to an appropriate customer record. Each record is then assigned its own unique identifier – a LexID®.

Sophisticated Analytics and Insights

We apply data science and leverage proprietary algorithms to provide better decision intelligence.
