Mortality screening should be a commonplace process within any company that holds consumer data. As well as having legislative obligations to ensure data held is current and accurate (as laid out in the Data Protection Act 1998), being aware of mortalities in your consumer data allows you to manage your customer and prospect relationships efficiently.
Deathscreen is our proprietary mortality screening file and is the most comprehensive in the UK. Calling upon both official GRO Death Index records as well as Halo and Mortascreen files from Millennium, Deathscreen is a dual-tiered mortality screening solution. The system matches mortalities not only by name and date of birth, but by name and last known address also, allowing Deathscreen to identify more mortalities than any other system in the UK.
The Deathscreen file is manually searchable through our Tracesmart Corporate online tracing system and IDU range of identity check solutions. Deathscreen is also incorporated into our data cleansing solutions and can be utilised as part of a full data cleansing exercise or for a stand alone mortality search.
Deathscreen can permanently flag records on your database to protect you from deceased fraud. Deathscreen is also commonly utilised in numerous vertical markets as a gone away suppression file for direct marketing campaigns.
