Calculation of Match Scores with the Universal Connector
The third-party software examines the candidate records, computes a match score for each record that is identified as a duplicate, and returns the duplicate records to SDQ. The match score is a number that represents the similarity of a record to the current active record. It is calculated taking into account a large number of rules along with a number of other factors and weightings.
