New DOTS Geophone Plus 2 is the most accurate, up-to-date phone number validation service available
“Telephone Marketers Beware!” whitepaper boils down the dos and don'ts of telemarketing in 2014
SANTA BARBARA, Calif., July 9, 2014 – Today Service Objects, the leading provider of real-time contact validation and address verification services, announced a new version of its popular real-time reverse phone look up service, DOTS Geophone Plus 2. In addition, the company has published a new whitepaper focused on making it easy for brands to understand the new Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA), which makes it illegal for brands to call or text a number for which the consumer is charged without consent.
Offering over 400 million individual records and 170 million wireless numbers that are compiled from over 2,300 U.S., Canadian and Puerto Rican telecom carriers, DOTS Geophone Plus 2 offers reserve lookup data for wireless, landline, VoIP and toll-free phone numbers including residential, business and government listings. With this real-time API service, companies can obtain detailed customer contact information including Local Number Portability data (LNP) that is genuine, accurate and up-to-date.
"With more than 90% of adults in the U.S. owning cell phones, it’s crucial for businesses to have landline, mobile, and VOIP data that serves their evolving contact verification needs,” said Geoffrey Grow, CEO of Service Objects. “DOTS Geophone Plus 2 uses the latest sources that link phone numbers to names, address, carrier and other relevant information – allowing our customers to accurately verify and identify their customers who contact them by phone.”
Additionally, DOTS Geophone Plus 2 helps organizations comply with TCPA, which protects consumers from unsolicited calls or texts to their cell phones. As consumers regularly port landline numbers to mobile devices, businesses need to be smarter than ever when contacting current and potential customers by phone. Communicating with consumers via their cell phones without written consent is against the law, and can have hefty penalty fees. For this reason, real-time phone number data is a must, as a phone number might be a landline one day, and be ported to a mobile device the next.
