Phone verification service

Definition:

A phone verification service allows businesses to reach customers quickly and efficiently by verifying phone numbers.

A phone verification service can run any phone number through a series of algorithms to determine the validity of that number. Numbers that are entered into a form or database are run through the algorithms, before returning with information regarding the validity of that number, and an accompanying accept or reject prompt.

Verifying phone numbers increases the validity of a company's contact information, and creates an opportunity to improve communication with customers.

Phone verification services have ample business benefits:

  • Instant phone number validation
  • Assurance of contact data and communication
  • Reduced costs associated with data mismanagement and rework
  • Phone verification services can be paired with address verification software in order to create a complete data validation suite

Phone number validation tools have various cross industry solutions:
