Firstlogic, Inc. and Language Analysis Systems announced a global alliance that allows each organization to position and refer the others' technology in selling opportunities around the globe. Under the agreement, LAS' name-recognition technology, which includes a complete suite of tools for parsing, cleansing, matching and scoring name information, will complement Firstlogic's complete line of data quality software technology including components for profiling, analysis, standardization, matching, and consolidation of both customer and business data.

LAS' patent-pending advanced name-recognition technology enhances the process of identifying multicultural personal names in databases and text. By incorporating LAS' technologies to work in conjunction with its data quality suite, Firstlogic will offer the most advanced capabilities for managing all aspects of customer data, including global variations of name information. The combined solution helps both technology and business users reduce potential fraudulent activities, decrease "false positive" identification of individuals on governmental or international law enforcement "watch lists," and lower costs associated with implementing regulatory-compliant processes that assure an organization is not conducting business with known criminals.
