Service Objects, the leading provider of real-time global contact validation solutions, today announced its new Country Detective service, which allows businesses to correct or append the country of origin to each of their existing contact records. Knowing the geographical location of contact records in a database is the first step to complying with the over 100 international Data Protection laws currently being passed or in existence. Companies are invited to try Country Detective for free by requesting a Global Data Assessment.
Our Country Detective service will give businesses the information they need to determine which of their contact records have the greatest liability.
Geoff Grow, Founder and CEO of Service Objects.
The Global Data Assessment will process up to 500 contact records through Service Objects’ Country Detective service, which will append or correct the existing country. The assessment will also verify other data points, including phone, email, device, and address, and provide an overall quality score for each record. A detailed report of the results, along with recommendations on potential next steps to take, will also be provided.
While Europe’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) goes into effect May 25, 2018, many other international Data Protection laws are already in place, such as Canada’s PIPEDA, Australia’s NDB, and Japan’s APPI. The consequences of noncompliance are significant, including costly fines and other penalties.
“We know that many US organizations have a large percentage of customer records that are currently missing country data, which is the first step to achieve compliance with data protection laws,” said Geoff Grow, CEO and Founder, Service Objects. “Our Country Detective service will give businesses the information they need to determine which of their contact records have the greatest liability.”
