Phone Validation

Improve your communication effectiveness with rapid phone number verification

Check the accuracy of the data you collect and hold in an instant

Phone validation is becoming an increasingly important part of your wider communications strategy. High answer and sms open rates mean that an accurate number is a strong method of customer communication.

Phone validation and verification services from Experian instantly validate mobile phone numbers at the point of data capture or from a list you already hold. This means you can successfully contact your customer more often when you have something important to say.

Connect with customers

It stands to reason that you need accurate contact information if you wish to engage with your customers. Phone data is no different.

Validating phone data at the point it is collected, or regularly validating the numbers you already hold, is therefore a key pillar of your broader communications and data strategies.

Stop wasting time

Optimising processes and ensuring your customer service agents are working as efficiently as possible is critical for any business.

Phone verification software from Experian helps you save time and money. Improved contact success, less time finding and correcting data and better customer service are all benefits of using validation software.

Improve data integrity

Accurate data helps your organisation perform at its best. From smarter decision making to improved customer service, accurate data powers it all.

By validating your phone data you are protecting the integrity of your business’s data assets and ensuring you can maximise the effectiveness of your operations.
