e-Rewards Announces Partnership with RelevantView
DALLAS, Texas, September 1, 2009 – e-Rewards, Inc., the nation’s largest online market research panel provider, today announced plans to utilize RelevantView’s digital fingerprinting technology, RelevantID®. The RelevantID respondent validation system will be the latest component of e-Rewards’ existing quality management system, Veracity360™.
e-Rewards' Veracity360 system (patent pending) encompasses all aspects of a respondent's engagement, including ID Validation, Duplicate Elimination, Profile Validation, and overall Survey Performance, which incorporates a systematic Client Feedback Loop. The RelevantID component will augment e-Rewards’ QMS by adding a de-duplication technology and geolocation verification capacity to all projects. Based on a respondent's profile and RelevantID’s technology, e-Rewards will be able to validate the legitimacy of panel members.
"e-Rewards has always provided the highest level of data quality within the industry, and with the use of RelevantID, we will enhance our ability to deliver online respondents that meet our clients' specific needs," said Sean Eidson, Vice President of Panel Strategy at e-Rewards. "At a time when the topic of quality is forefront in the online research community, we found that RelevantView delivers the most effective third-party validation system available to the industry and felt that it could be an effective extension of our panel quality system in place today."
RelevantID, the leading solution for de-duping and geo-location verification, will be fully integrated with e-Rewards’ QMS, Veracity360. When a respondent logs in to begin a survey, RelevantID technology will gather upwards of 60 data points from the respondent’s computer. Through the use of proprietary algorithms these data points will be analyzed resulting in a globally unique digital fingerprint. No personally identifiable data will be collected and no files on the respondent’s computer will be altered.
"One key to remember – there is not just one single foolproof measure to ensure panel quality – it’s the combination of techniques and systematic methodologies working together to authenticate each panel member’s engagement and achieve holistic panel quality," said Steve Davis, COO of e-Rewards. "With the implementation of RelevantID technology, we are improving upon an existing panel quality methodology that is robust and holistic. e-Rewards will continue to set the bar high in quality through continual extensions and updates of its QMS, Veracity360."
