Overview
TitleNormalizing and Comparing Addresses with TeamMate Analytics

Summary
There are a number of reasons auditors would like to compare addresses using data analytics tools. For instance, to look for duplicate vendors or compare employees to vendors. The problem is that the same address can be written a number of slightly different ways and still be a valid address. 123 N Main St. is the same address as 123 North Main Street but would fail a duplicates check. Fuzzy matching algorithms can also lead to many false positives. In this topical webinar, we'll provide you with strategies for normalizing your addresses and show how to implement those strategies using TeamMate Analytics.
