Hopewiser's Rugby World Cup Past and Present Data Cleansing XV

The 2023 Rugby World Cup is well underway and here at Hopewiser, we have rugby fever. With branches in Australia and England, our allegiance lies with these two nations!

In the spirit of this massive sporting event, we have put together a squad of past and present rugby stars who we think would be the best choice for a data cleansing and address validation team.

What do you think of our squad?

How far would the Hopewiser Data Cleansing team go in the World Cup?

What adjustments would you make to our XV?

1 – Simone Ferrari – Prop – Our Postcode Lookup is as fast as a Ferrari when it comes to bringing up address results with limited keystrokes, saving customers time and improving their overall experience.

2 – Siua Maile – Hooker – Siua slots into our team to ensure that ‘Maile’ and other delivery items reach their intended target by verifying address data and confirming that a recipient is valid.

3 – Alexandru Savin – Prop – validating customer emails ensures that marketing efforts reach real address, ‘Savin’ businesses time and optimising ROI.

4 – Courtney Lawes – Second Row – Providing best practice guidelines for the management of data helps organisations comply with data privacy ‘Lawes’ such as GDPR.

5 – John Eales – Second Row – Nicknamed ‘Nobody’ because nobody is perfect. When using Address Lookup, Eales only picks the perfect address to match to a customers postcode or address entry.

6 – Francois Cros – Flanker –¬†Using the Ordnance Survey dataset provides organisations with accurate data insights using 100 million ‘Cros’ references and 40 million addresses.

7 – Richie McCaw – Flanker – With the most tackles in World Cup history, McCaw is crucial to stopping dirty data from entering a database and causing issues for an organisation.

8 – Diego Ormaechea – No.8 – Holds the record as the oldest player to feature at the tournament. Ormeachea’s reliability and experience is second to none, which is mirrored by Hopewiser as the first UK business to provide address software and services.

9 – Fourie du Preez – Scrum Half – du Preez holds the record for most try assists at the Rugby World Cup. We have selected him because he can provide Data Quality Services for our organisation to stay ahead of competitors and provide end-to-end support.

10 – Jonny Wilkinson – Fly Half – As the highest overall point scorer at the World Cup, Wilkinson is known for his accuracy and reliability, a trait he shares with Hopewiser when it comes to delivering accurate results and meeting the requirements of customers.

11 – Leicester Fainga’anuku – Wing – In the first few matches of the 2023 tournament,¬† Leicester lead the way for the most offloads. He slots into our XV so we can offload out of date information and help organisations progress by taking on board clean data.

12 – Dan Carter – Centre – With the most conversions in Rugby World Cup history, Carter is selected to boost conversion rates during sign-up stages on web forms.

13 – Brian O’Driscoll – Centre – O’Driscoll belongs at the centre of our team because he provides security and reinforcement, like Hopewiser’s Payment Validation service which ensures bank details are secure and verified to achieve successful transactions and satisfied customers.

14 – Jonah Lomu – Wing – Known as the Lord of the Wings and a freight train in ballet shoes due to his power and evasive skills, Jonah Lomu is the youngest person to play for the All Blacks. He takes the wing spot in our team because like our address software he is known for being fast, and robust.

15 – Serge Blanco – Full Back – By integrating Hopewiser’s Address Lookup tool into online web-forms, customers will be able to quickly find their address details, speeding up the check-out process and reducing ‘Blanco’ payment pages and abandoned carts.

Steve Hansen– Head Coach – Hansen knows what it takes to be a winner, crowned as the World Rugby coach of the year 4 times and winning multiple titles, his experience and know-how leads him to the winning formula to become the best of the rest. Similarly, Hopewiser have first-class knowledge and do things differently from competitors, which helps us stay at the top of the data cleansing game.
