Maritz Research Selects Imperium’s RelevantID for Digital Fingerprinting ServicesThe digital fingerprinting service provides additional assurance that surveys are free of duplicate responses

ST. LOUIS (July 7, 2011) – Maritz Research, a global marketing research leader, will add RelevantID®, a digital fingerprinting technology, to its suite of data quality tools. RelevantID, provided by technology development firm, Imperium®, offers a solution for respondent de-duplication than can protect against a single computer accessing a particular research study more than once.

“As a leader in our industry, Maritz Research is always looking to adapt and improve our customer experience research solutions to meet the demands of our clients and their customers. Adding RelevantID to our already robust suite of quality control measures allows us to do just that,” said Gloria Park Bartolone, senior vice president of fieldwork services for Maritz Research.

RelevantID’s technology gathers a large number of data points from a respondent’s web browser. These data points are then put through proprietary algorithms, resulting in a unique digital fingerprint for that machine. No personally identifiable information is collected, and no information on the respondent’s computer is altered.
