The high value in this tool is its relatively low cost, ease of use, tight integration with SSIS, superior performance (compared to competitors), and attribute-level advanced survivor-ship logic.We mainly communicate with our customers via email, so we primarily use it to find a phone number so we can contact them more efficiently. This allows us to talk to them and resolve their issues much more quickly.​Ability to keep our data set clean and usable for our community searches.​​​Allows us to delete and correct incorrect data to make the searching of our applicant tracking system more consistent and relevant.​​It saves a huge amount of time. Before using this service, we used a vendor that manually ran our lists through this NCOA list, which might have taken one to three business days to return the file. This was a huge bottleneck in our process, and the data returned was not always accurate. After switching to Melissa Data’s SmartMover, the process has been reduced to between ten minutes and three hours, depending on the amount of records sent.​It has a straightforward, easy setup.Gives us the ability to offer an additional resource that other companies do not.We are able to send out client mailings with the most accurate addresses possible.

Although DQA can fetch data from most of the commonly used data sources, it has limited modifiers to get data, meaning that the number of technologies from which the data can be acquired is limited. For example, DQA does not support fetching data from Twitter or Facebook. Many competitors have this feature.

The tool needs to provide resizable forms/windows like all other SSIS windows. Vendor claims its an SSIS limitation however all SSIS components are resizable so that isn't true. This is just an annoyance but needless.We would appreciate it if there was a larger database so that we could find information more often. For example, we can search for 10 people and only find the information for three of them, if we are lucky.The custom software solution we still use in-house makes Excel a lot slower than usual.We have noticed that some of the emails and addresses return with confusing or incorrect codes, but for the most part, it is accurate.​The billing structure does not seem very accurate. We’ve had issues with miscounted batch records processedPricing is based on tiers, with each tier capped at a specified number of records processed. Once you go over the cap at one tier, you are automatically bumped to the next tier. However, they seem to count failed batch processes so it’s good to keep track of the number of records sent. They’ll fix the count when notified, but their system fails to detect actual successful processes versus failed processes.We encounter failed batch processes once in a while, but their team is quick to rectify issues.Needs to provide more phone numbers, even cell numbers (scrubbed numbers).

Pricing and Cost Advice

This vendor has no equal in pricing for equivalent functionality.Buy a lot more credits than you think you’re going to need.​You should have a good idea of the size of your data and the amount of cleansing you will be doing, so you will purchase the appropriate size bundle.​​It is affordable.Pricing is very reasonable, no licensing required.​We are concerned that our own pricing is going up every year for Melissa Data products, but we highly recommend the services for people who are routinely sending out mailings.Cloud version is very cheap. On-premise version is expensive.Trial subscriptions (via cloud) are very cheap and easy to use. It’s a great way to test Listware to see if you want to go deeper with integration.
