← MatchUp Object

MatchUp offers three methods of operation:

Incremental Deduping

This operation is usually used for real-time data-entry validation. For example, a call center data entry system where an operator would like to determine whether or not the caller is an existing customer.

Read/Write Deduping

This operation is usually used for processing full lists, much in the same what that MatchUp for Windows does.

Hybrid Deduping

This operation is a cross between incremental deduping and read/write Deduping. The API is responsible for none of the data storage, which makes it appealing for some DBMS-oriented applications (using SQL Server, DB/2, Oracle, etc.).
