API for Create Account with Duplicate Detection

    We are running CRM 8.2.2 on premise and need to create accounts from our web site using the CRM API/SDK.  We want to avoid creating duplicates and thus want to capture the response from the in the box CRM duplicate detection rules and present the information back to the web user to make a decision, similar to what happens when you use the CRM in the box interface with dupe detection turned on.  Has anyone done this, or do you know if it's possible?  Any assistance or point me to a tech paper would be appreciated.

    HI Donna,

    Paribus Interactive (paribuscloud.com) could do this as well. While it typically resides within D365 CE, it could just as easily be deployed in any web form you like to allow fuzzy searching and duplicate detection using your CRM data. Let me know if you want to further discuss or see it in action.

    Regards,

    Ryan
