IPT processes large volumes of data on a daily basis, which include processes such as deduplication, standardization, suppression, cleansing and enhancement.
IPT was seeking a solution that would significantly reduce the time it took to process large datasets as well as being a technology that users could derive real value from without having to be a programmer or very technical in nature. IPT had clear end-to-end processes in mind that it had modelled and wished to implement.

"Datactics has completely changed our data processing. IPT processes large in-house data files and Datactics has reduced our processing so much that we can test new matching routines very quickly. Within testing we have also found that Datactics help and support has been second to none."

- Paul O’Callaghan, Asst Operations Manager, IPT


IPT were introduced to Datactics at the Direct Marketing Show in London where its technology was being exhibited. A demonstration at the exhibition led to an evaluation of the technology onsite at IPT.


Before Datactics processes ran for over 8 hours. After Datactics processing is now completed in less than an hour.
