We offer a FREE SIC coding sample service: we will put a portion of your data through our automated services for free. This will show you the true quality of our work, especially if you compare our work to our competitors.
We have never come across a situation where a competitor has added more SIC codes to business data than us!
As a secondary special offer we will also enhance your data with an employee banding, modelled turnover and a region flag so you can analyse your data by SIC code, company size and region. There is no additional cost, you pay for the SIC coding and you receive the extra data elements for free.
We have added Standard Industry Classification (SIC) codes to an amazing 99% of all the business records we have ever put through our full SIC coding system (when including manual coding).
1. Match incoming client data to our 6+ million business universe (live and ceased trading) and append SIC codes where found.
2. AutoSIC the unmatched records to add more UK SIC codes. For some companies you can tell what they do from their name. Our software AutoSIC utilises millions of words and statistics to add an SIC code with a high degree of confidence just from a company name.
3. We offer a manual sanity check to improve automated results, this involves us looking through weaker parts of the data and manually improving the SIC codes generated by the earlier automated processes.
4. Manually add UK SIC codes for any records without a company SIC code. We perform up to 3 internet searches for each business that still needs an SIC code, where we find the business on the internet and can establish what they do we add the SIC code.
