Pipl develops technology to collect, analyze, translate, cluster, and organize shared data in order to provide relevant information. The company offers access to its data through a variety of products including an API and search engine.
Pipl’s search scours social networks, directories, public records, publications, associations, eCommerce sites, and thousands of other sources. Once Pipl has collected the data, it uses machine learning, fuzzy matching, and its own identity-resolution technology to normalize and categorize the information and match it to the right person.
The company’s data enables its business customers to offer a variety of use cases, including contact enrichment for customer relationship management, compliance and identity verification for eCommerce, background checks for government and homeland security, and information for individual consumers.
