Phone Object, available as a multiplatform API or Web service allows custom applications and Web sites to verify phone numbers, update area codes, and append data about the phone number. Reduce data entry errors, enhance telemarketing results and improve productivity with valid, up-to-date phone numbers.
To verify phone numbers in the U.S. and Canada, choose the North American Edition. For international numbers, select the World Edition that offers support for over 200 countries and territories.
Phone Object is also available as part of the Data Quality Suite which also includes Email, Address and Name Objects.
The North American Edition of Phone Object verifies and updates U.S. and Canadian phone numbers, validates toll-free numbers, identifies numbers as business, residential, landline, cell phone, and more.
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.
