The Link King
Record Linkage and Consolidation Software
Additional Features in The Link King v4.0

  • "Presto" the data formatting wizard virtually eliminates the need to format your input dataset

  • Completely revised easy-to-follow instruction manual

  • Link/Unduplicate datasets of virtually ANY size (up to  99,999,999 records).

  • New Preliminary Data Reports and Processing Protocols:
  • Conserve CPU and Disk requirements when blocking and comparing

  • Prevent linking errors before they occur

  • Identify and eliminate "bad" SSN and DOBs

  • Conserve CPU and disk usage with "alias compression"
  • Prior to blocking The Link King will use our new "alias compression" protocol to minimize resource use in
    blocking & comparing records.  If your data has a lot of aliases, this feature
can save a lot of time.

  • Create a "master" roster and update it as new information becomes available.
  • Once a "master roster" is created and a “uniqueid” is established through Consolidation of your source data, the
    master roster can be re-input into The Link King as the “sample” and newly matched records will be appended
    without changing the original value for “uniqueid”

    After mapping, the updated "master roster" will contain:
  • All records originally in the "master roster" with newly matched records “folded” into the  preexisting

  • Optionally, all unmatched records in the “matching” dataset will be appended and the “uniqueid”
    incremented as necessary.

  • Enhanced interface for manual review of uncertain pairs

  • Enhanced interface for manual review of cross-links (aka "chained links")

  • Enhanced Artificial Intelligence
