Tracesmart visitors will be first to access new Electoral Roll Search 2009

Cardiff based company Tracesmart, is the first online people search facility to make the 2009 edited Electoral Roll available to the general public. To ensure their customers have access to the most up-to-date records available, Tracesmart has uploaded the new electoral data in record time this year, easily out-manoeuvring the competition and significantly benefiting their loyal customer base.

 

The Electoral Roll plays a pivotal part in assisting people who are looking to find relatives or friends that they have lost contact with. As the most accurate annual snapshot of the UK adult population available, the Electoral Roll is one of the foundations on which Tracesmart’s people search facility is built.

When a trace is conducted using one of the Tracesmart websites many tools, such as the address search or friend finder, the results provided are collated from various sources, now including Electoral Rolls from 2003 to 2009 and the company’s unique Tracesmart Register. Visitors to the site can choose which datasets they query during their trace, or alternatively they may choose to search through all available records. The new Electoral Roll data sits alongside the previous years and Tracesmart customers can choose to only search the most current electoral roll search if they so wish.

Paul Weathersby, Technical Director, commented “Being the first online tracing facility to provide 2009 electoral information reinforces our commitment to provide the most up-to-date and accurate data. We continually strive to ensure that our customers experience high positive result rates when attempting to locate someone, the accuracy of data an individual has access to when tracing can make all of the difference”

To maintain the accuracy of the new electoral data, Tracesmart will be refreshing it on a monthly basis from January 2009 with Rolling Register updates. Amendments made through Rolling Register updates amount to almost 150,000 records per month and ensure that electoral information supplied by Tracesmart is as accurate as possible.

Highlighting the importance of the Electoral Roll in tracing, Tracesmart’s Managing Director, Michael Trezise noted, “Tracesmart’s main priority is customer satisfaction and that means we have to acquire and provide the highest quality of data. This provides our customers with the confidence that the results they obtain are current and correct. My roots are in tracing and I appreciate the provision of accurate data is key – this is the reason why we want to be the first to offer the new records.”

Tracing Specialists Add Millions Of 2009 Electoral Register Records To Their Database

Tracesmart, renowned for supplying companies with data cleansing and debtor tracing solutions, have announced that they have uploaded 2009 edited Electoral register records to their database. The records have also been integrated into their Tracesmart Corporate product suite to provide their customers with access to the most up-to-date electoral information available – making them the first supplier of online people tracing services and identity checks to do so.

The definitive annual snapshot of the UK electorate, the Electoral register has two formats – the full version which is utilised to facilitate voting and credit reference checks; and the edited Electoral register which is commercially available and employed by many companies to trace people, cleanse consumer data and verify individual’s identities in know your customer exercises.

Commenting from their Cardiff Bay headquarters, Paul Weathersby, Technical Director at Tracesmart, notes how the loading of the 2009 electoral records onto their database has been their quickest to date,

“This year the process of adding electoral data to our system has been the swiftest and most efficient in company history. We have significantly improved on our strong track record by loading the data earlier than we ever have – this has been possible through both considerable expansion of our IT team throughout 2008 and an enhancement of our data collection process.”

Edited Electoral register records are a key component in both identity checks and tracing exercises as they contain both the name and address of UK citizens – essential pieces of information if you need to identify or locate an individual. The prompt release of 2009 edited Electoral register records demonstrates one of Tracesmart’s key philosophies – that their clients should be able to access the freshest data at the earliest opportunity, as Mike Trezise, Tracesmart’s Managing Director, explains,

“Electoral records play a key role in all of our services – especially in our online tracing resource and our electronic identity verification tool. As such we acquired Electoral register 2009 records at the earliest possible time to ensure that users of our services have access to the most up-to-date information available and obtain the highly accurate results that they require.”

Tracesmart Recently Assisted A Remarkable Trace Involving A Son From Colwyn Bay In Search Of His Long Lost Dad

Michael Taylor had never met his father, David, until they were reunited for the first time last week. The father and son met each other on Michael’s 25th birthday, making the occasion even more special. Michael initially contacted Tracesmart in response to the company’s Missing Person Campaign which has been running since March, and has helped to reunite many other families in time for Christmas.

The campaign has seen a mixture of family circumstances; all involving people looking to find relatives, many with no idea of how to perform an electoral roll search. Tracesmart has a dedicated team of researchers, each working individually on a search, providing excellent support for those hoping to find relatives. Michael had thought about searching for his father for many years, and especially since he recently became a father himself. He had never attempted a people search before and was unaware how to find relatives using the internet, but he was able to provide enough information to the researcher, who in turn found a positive match instantly through Tracesmart’s simple to use people search. Mr Dibben confirmed his details with the researcher, and was overjoyed to hear that Michael was trying to find him. The reunion was made even more extraordinary as Michael and David were found to be living in the same town, only two miles apart! Michael commented “I’m still in shock, I’ve been walking around town all these years, and my Dad may have passed by many times. We now meet up regularly and are planning to spend out first Christmas together, which is going to be fantastic.”

Tracesmart aims to raise awareness of how easy it can be to be reunited with a missing person, and hope that new visitors will log on and try for themselves. Many will be missing a family member or friend this Christmas, which, in a large number of cases can be avoided through an instant people search or address search to check the details are up to date.

“We at Tracesmart are delighted to have helped Michael, and to be involved in reuniting many other families and friends, and especially at this time of year, when Christmas celebrations will highlight the importance of finding those who are missing. We hope to assist even more visitors to find relatives this year and hopefully make this festive season extra special,” added Owen Roberts, Tracesmart’s Communications Manager.

Wholelook.com Is A Novel New Humor Website Offering Clean Jokes, Riddles, Cartoons And More!

CliffR Projections is pleased to announce the successful launch of its all new novel humor website Wholelook.com. Whole Look is the brainchild of owner Cliff Livingstone. Rather than using the standard approach of categorizing the content according to type such as Blond Jokes, Legal Jokes, Religious Jokes etc., and placing the materials in folders within folders requiring considerable surfing around to find anything, Livingstone decided to provide a whole new look and feel for a humor site. Whole Look fulfills the mandate perfectly says Livingstone. The look and feel of Whole Look is unlike any other humor website on the Internet.

Livingstone says he wanted a website which anyone looking for a quick pick me up while at work, studying, or working on the Internet could enjoy in a minute, rather than a website for someone who has gone onto the Internet looking for something to do. As a bottom line he went back to the late Netscape Browser approach, which was to present a Daily Joke followed by a small number of next’s, which were updated approximately once a week. Whole Look was initiated with the original ease and simplicity of Netscape and went forward from there.

Whole Look is now right on target says Livingstone. The Whole Look website offers ten different types of Daily Jokes with three ‘Nexts’ each, all refreshed twice daily. A visit to the site can be likened to a quick trip to the water cooler or a refreshing cup of coffee. Similarly, the content is categorized by kind rather than type, such as Jokes, Quotes, Puns, One offs (called Quickies), etc. Whole Look is also Family Guide approved, with no off color or other unsavoury jokes of any kind.

The Whole Look website is simplicity in itself. The Daily Jokes are all presented on the home page and no surfing is required to get around. Livingstone says even web dummies should be able figure out Whole look. As Livingstone likes to point out, ‘Who laughs last thinks slowest’. Likewise Whole Look is available to everyone equally. No memberships are required, or logins, or signups. Likewise, visitors are not hit with other annoying Whole look protocols.

Missing person Blog to be launched by Gill Whitley in collaboration with Tracesmart with the aim of helping reuniting people with their loved ones

Tracesmart is to launch a new website on behalf of ‘Searching for a Memory’, a voluntary tracing service run by Gill Whitley. The organisation is sponsored by Tracesmart, the leading online people search facility, and consists of Gill and a team of three other tracers working from home; their aim is to help find relatives or friends for people who have no idea where to start.

Gill, the founder of the service, has been tracing families since 1998 and since then has helped thousands of people hoping to find relatives. The new blog style website will allow visitors to share with Gill as she posts her success stories, and post comments or questions live on the site allowing her to reply personally.

The blog has been created as part of the collaboration between Tracesmart and the ‘Searching for a Memory’ team, an alliance which began early in 2008, and has been flourishing ever since. The union was formed with the aim of becoming an exceptional team in the people search arena, mixing the experience of the research team together with Tracesmart’s extensive online people search facility. Tracesmart’s Missing Person campaign launched in February of this year, with the intention of raising the profile of its vast electoral roll search facility, resulted in countless enquiries and in some cases, the information offered by the person searching was very limited, consequently it became beneficial to refer the trace to Gill and her team.

Gill commented, “I started Searching for a Memory in recognition of my late mother-in-law, who had been estranged from my husband for 34 years. I found her 11 months before she died, and thought as a tribute to her I would continue tracing to help other people find their loved ones. Over the years I would like to think I have had a great deal of success. I have used various resources during this time, but none better than Tracesmart’s excellent online address search and people search facility.” Gill added, “The facility makes tracing so much easier compared to the earlier days and can very easily be used by anyone.”

Tracesmart’s Communications Manager, Owen Roberts, commented, “The ‘Searching for a Memory’ website has been created by our in-house technical team to help Gill, we are very pleased to be able to facilitate and help Gill and her team because of the excellent voluntary service they provide. I anticipate many people will interact with the new website, and enquire with Gill for help with any Missing Person search, with the hope people will also share their success stories or questions with each other on the blog.”

  • Gill Whitley – Gill is an experienced tracer and has successfully reunited thousands of individuals through her Searching for a Memory project. Her association with the weekly Missing and Found column is published each Saturday in the Daily Mail.
  • Owen Roberts has worked in the creative, advertising and communications industries for over 25 years and is the voice of Tracesmart. Heading up the communications team, he raises the public awareness of the company through various media driven PR campaigns.

Bigmouthmedia launches campaign to promote search marketing as career option

Bigmouthmedia, independent digital marketing agency, has launched a new cross-industry campaign to promote a career in Search and digital marketing to university graduates.

The move follows the recent publication of survey results revealing that the majority of Scotland’s new graduates feel that higher education should do more to connect students to potential opportunities in emerging industries. The research, which was conducted earlier this year by bigmouthmedia, also revealed students’ beliefs that universities are failing to adequately prepare leavers for life in the real world.

Despite the fact that search marketing has grown from nothing to become a £1.2bn a year business in the last decade, until now none of the UK’s careers advisory bodies have listed search engine optimisation or digital marketing amongst the options available to graduates. However, following consultations with bigmouthmedia, Careers Scotland have now updated their records to reflect the industry’s growing significance.

While continuing to work with the relevant sector Skills Councils in Scotland to ensure that information is available to entry-level job seekers, bigmouthmedia now plans to carry the campaign to the rest of the UK and Europe.

“Every year companies like bigmouthmedia hire a raft of recent graduates, yet our experience attending university careers fairs tells us that many new entrants to the workforce are simply unaware of the opportunities available in the sector,” said Lyndsay Menzies, Managing Director of bigmouthmedia UK.

She continued, “With a wide range of roles on offer the search marketing sector can offer a career path to both science graduates with Maths, Statistics or IT related degrees and social sciences students with creative, language and communications skills. We believe that new career paths like this have a vital role to play in the economy, and will continue campaigning to ensure that the relevant advisory bodies are kept up to date.”

“It’s often been joked in the search marketing space that no one wanted to be a search marketer when they grew up. Such jobs didn’t exist. Now they do, and it’s great to see that careers services are catching up to help provide education for this important career,” said Danny Sullivan, Editor In Chief, SearchEngineLand.com.

Tracesmart Aim To Make IOD Fraud A Thing Of The Past

Making a concerted effort to stamp out Impersonation of the Deceased (IOD) fraud, Tracesmart, leading suppliers of identity verification tools, have this week launched Existence – a new suite of services with the potential to eliminate IOD fraud.

IOD is a form of identity fraud – it is estimated by the Home Office Identity Fraud Steering Committee, that identity fraud costs the UK economy £1.7 billion annually. Whilst IOD fraud has historically been hard to tackle due to the lack of death records being made available, recent changes in legislation have allowed the UK General Register Offices (GRO) to release death registration information (DRI) to commercial bodies with the aim of preventing fraud. It is this move that has enabled Tracesmart to develop their suite of services which will tackle IOD fraud head on.

Combining in-depth mortality screening and residency verification, the service allows users to ascertain whether an individual is alive and if they reside at their given address. Paul Weathersby, Technical Director at Tracesmart, commented on the data which drives these checks.

“The mortality screening element of our Existence services draws upon the GRO’s DRI data and the residency verifier calls upon a variety of consumer datasets including historic Electoral Rolls, leading gone away files and BT OSIS amongst others. The combination of these checks allows us to confidently identify deceased individuals and gone aways.”

The Existence suite comprises three services with which clients can conduct existence checks. Existence Search is an online facility which can be used to conduct single ad-hoc checks; Existence Batch is a batch screening service where multiple persons can be verified and the third, and possibly most significant service, is Existence Alert – an early warning system that notifies users of mortalities at the earliest possible opportunity.

Tracesmart has long provided tools for conducting identity checks and has a strong history in the field of fraud prevention. The combination of this experience and access to DRI will enable the Existence services to effectively help put an end to IOD fraud. Mike Trezise, Managing Director at Tracesmart, has already seen a high volume of interest in the product.

“Prior to launch we approached several key clients in the pension and financial sectors to gauge market interest in the product. As we suspected, the demand is most certainly there and we already have prominent pensions administrators and large schemes utilising the system to replace certificate of existence exercises, and many in the financial sector are employing it as part of their know your customer checks. Preventing IOD fraud will save businesses considerable amounts of money and protect consumers from both fiscal and emotional harm.”

Small And Mid-Size Businesses Can Decrease Expenses, Increase Productivity And Remain Profitable Despite The Current Economic Crisis With Hosted Messaging And Collaboration Solutions

123Together.com – a mindSHIFT Technologies company and the leading provider of hosted enterprise-class messaging and collaboration solutions such as hosted Exchange Server 2007 and Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 — today announced that it has eliminated setup fees for all new customers who sign up for its hosted Exchange Server service, available immediately.

“Our goal is to help businesses of all sizes remain profitable despite the current economic downturn,” said Ravi Agarwal, founder and Senior Executive Officer of 123Together.com, a mindSHIFT company. “By eliminating all setup fees for our hosted Exchange Server services, we make it possible for businesses, regardless of their size, to make use of the functionality that this industry-leading, enterprise-class messaging and collaboration application provides without having to incur significant financial expenses or hire additional personnel.”

As a result of the current economic downturn, many small and mid-size businesses (SMBs) are required to decrease overhead, cut operational costs and reallocate existing funds to get the most value from every dollar they spend. At the same time, business owners expect increased productivity and efficiency among their existing employees, with additional human and financial resources unlikely or impossible.

The economic climate has forced SMBs to search for more cost-effective alternatives for critical business applications, such as email, to maximize the effectiveness of existing business resources without having to incur any additional expenses. Hosted software services such as 123Together.com’s hosted Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 have become viable alternatives to in-house email server deployment and can be utilized in exactly the same manner as the in-house application but at a significantly reduced cost.

In order to assist businesses even further and help their employees remain productive, 123Together.com has eliminated the setup fee requirement for all shared and dedicated hosted Exchange packages and any additional mailboxes activated through the month of November 2008.

Many SMBs do not have the financial or human resources or even the time necessary to deploy Microsoft Exchange Server in-house, as it requires significant investments in hardware and software, training and hiring of IT personnel, as well as around-the-clock server maintenance, monitoring and upgrades. 123Together.com’s new special offer makes it possible for SMBs to reap the same benefits from this industry-leading email application as most Fortune 500 companies but at a significantly reduced cost. It provides employees with anytime, anywhere access to their business e-mail no matter where they may be, as well as 2-way wireless synchronization of mail, calendar, contacts, notes and tasks with most mobile devices, including BlackBerry and Apple iPhone 3G.

In addition, 123Together.com offers 24×7 live U.S.-based technical support and 24×7 server maintenance, monitoring and upgrades, enabling businesses without an internal technical staff to profit from this service. All hosted Exchange users also receive free Outlook 2007.

123Together.com’s offer of no setup fees on all of its hosted Exchange packages is available immediately and continues through the end of November 2008.

About 123Together.com
Headquartered in Burlington, Massachusetts, 123Together.com, a mindSHIFT company, is the leading provider of hosted enterprise-class messaging and collaboration solutions including hosted Microsoft Exchange Server, Windows SharePoint Services and Dynamics CRM. These hosted services are offered on shared and dedicated servers to small and mid-size businesses and can be resold as a completely white labeled service. Full mobile access is also offered for BlackBerry, Treo, iPhone, PocketPC, and Windows Mobile handheld devices. Exchange hosting customers receive free Outlook 2007, live 24×7 U.S.-based technical support, advanced spam and virus filtering and a 100% uptime guarantee on dedicated servers. A 30-day no-obligation trial is available for shared customers. Additional information can be found at www.123Together.com
