What is the difference between 100% fuzzy and 75% fuzzy?

Category: SmartScan Service

A 75% fuzzy search will enable our system to retrieve hits on names with 75% of the name parts included in the search request. For example if there are 4 name parts in your search request – Abdel Basit Hag Hassan – then all of the results will have a minimum of 3 of the 4 clauses in that name. Whereas if that search was 100% fuzzy, all results would have all four name parts in it. This will limit the number of hits you get on a search.
