Marketo Integration

Service Objects' DOTS Name Validation is now available for integration with Marketo.  Via Webhooks our Name Validation service can be added to your Marketo processes.  By following the steps in our integration guide you will be up and running in moments.  Using the guide will allow you to map the results from the service to any of your updateable fields and allow you to do analysis on the results. 

As we say on our product page for this service “First impressions are important; get your customer’s name right”. With Name Validation in Marketo you will quickly be able to identify fraudulent names and keep the integrity of you system at high levels. 

The service also returns related first names with respect to the name in question, for example Robert will return: Bo, Bob, Bobby, Rob, Robby, Robert, Roberto…

The service will return various data points to help you understand more about the contact you have but it will also return to you several scores indicating the validity of the name at several levels such as its of vulgarity, celebrity, bogus and garbage.  We will also include the likely hood of the first, middle and last names to be a dictionary word. 

You can set your workflows up to examine the fine details that our Name Validation service returns or simply analyze the IsNameGood field which returns true or false on validity of the name.
