Sparkroom And iDatafy Team Up To Fight Inquiry Fraud

Career College Central summary:

  • Sparkroom now offers real-time fraud checking services through its pre-built integration with the iDatafy LeadReview database. The LeadReview database is a master bad-inquiry database for the online inquiry generation industry. Schools contribute information about bad past inquiries to the patent pending database and, in turn, receive real-time information from the database regarding prior bad marks from other schools within the LeadReview consortium. Schools can set rejection and routing rules within Sparkroom to use the iDatafy information to optimize the inquiry quality and performance of their enrollment campaigns.
  • “We are on a quest to achieve both the highest level of compliance and the highest quality of inquiry. Not surprisingly, these objectives go hand in hand,” said Todd Eicher, CEO of CUnet.
  • Based on historical reviews of data, iDatafy has proven the ability for LeadReview to enhance the performance of a campaign: inquiries that have been marked “bad” multiple times are less likely to convert. In a recent study, iDatafy calculated a five-figure cost per start for inquiries marked bad seven or more times. iDatafy also noted that start rates for inquiries with at least one bad mark were 40 percent lower than start rates for clean inquiries.
  • “The actionable data provided by iDatafy has the power to significantly clean incoming inquiry data while dramatically impacting the performance of a campaign,” explained Dave Wengel, founder & CEO of iDatafy.
  • “I welcome any school to challenge us to prove the value of LeadReview through a historical analysis of inquiries matched to our database.”
  • Sparkroom is cloud-based software that helps school marketers take control of their campaigns by tracking and analyzing key performance indicators.
