and even create cross-field combination counts for in-depth analysis.

Suppression zone, set purge level at Address or Individual, and even fine-tune matching as
tight, medium, or loose, to achieve the best possible results. Along with your duplicate-free output
file, our system creates detailed, multifaceted reports, and a complete process log.
