DOTS Telephone Verification

Validate Customer Phone Numbers by Live Call or SMS Text Message

DOTS Telephone Verification by Service Objects is a real-time web service API that validates a phone number by sending a confirmation code by voice or text message. This service is ideal for companies that want active verification of a phone number before a transaction is processed. DOTS Telephone Verification allows businesses to authenticate customers by using the existing phone networks to cross-verify that a customers' inputted telephone number is working, and in their possession. DOTS Telephone Verification prevents fraudulent customer sign-ups, as they are hesitant to release their true phone information. [View Datasheet]
