Next, we perform the linkage magic.

Alumlink can deal gracefully with misspellings, inaccurate dates, and errors (that are pretty common among alumni records), thanks to advanced natural language processing and our machine learning models that power it. Common issues we deal with involve:

Incomplete records

Name/Last name changes and nicknames

Discrepancies in degree naming conventions


We'll then audit and securely grant you access to your enriched records.

We take pride in our audit process and ensure you get the highest level of quality and accuracy, Alumlink was designed to scale while respecting the sensitivity of your alumni data. All PII data points you share with our team are encrypted and never leave our private cloud enclave.
