Populus selects RelevantID for digital fingerprinting technology

January 12th, 2011 – Populus Data Solutions (PDS) has partnered with Imperium®, a leading technology development firm specializing in data quality technologies, to utilize RelevantID® digital fingerprinting technology. RelevantID is the leading industry solution for respondent de-duplication and ensures that no respondent can take a survey more than once from the same machine. The technology will be implemented to ensure that Populus surveys are free of duplicate respondents.

“Providing robust online data is a cornerstone of our offer to our clients. We are delighted to be integrating RelevantID within our suite of quality control measures”, said Patrick Diamond, Managing Director of PDS.

RelevantID gathers a large number of data points from a respondent's computer. These data points are put through proprietary algorithms that result in a unique digital fingerprint for that machine. No personally identifiable information (PII) is collected and no information on the respondent's computer is altered. The process is seamless.

"RelevantID is the most widely accepted solution for digital fingerprinting in the Market Research industry," said Marshall Harrison, Founder and CEO of Imperium. "The result of implementing this service is higher quality research and more actionable intelligence for clients. We are pleased to partner with Populus Data Solutions on this quality initiative."
