Reduce Data Entry Errors

Phone Object can help reduce data entry errors by detecting invalid area code and prefix + 1 combinations (7 digits). It can also verify the entire 10-digit phone number for listed numbers 6 months or older.

Identify and Validate Toll-Free Numbers

Phone Object includes data on over 170,000 toll-free numbers (800, 866, 877, and 888) and can do a full 10-digit validation plus identify the type of owner (business, residence, or home office).

Append Geographic and Demographic Information

Because phone numbers are area specific, Phone Object will also append additional geographic information such as location latitude/longitude, time zone, city, state, ZIP, and county. Phone Object also appends valuable demographic information such as cell, landline, VOIP and residence, business, or home office.

Additional tools allow you to calculate distance from a phone number’s wire center to another phone number or ZIP Code.

The World Edition of Phone Object takes a phone number and a country and determines whether the number is valid for the region, or it can take a phone number alone, and determine what county the number is from by recognizing the international access code.
