Santa Barbara, CA, United States, 2010/06/25 - Service Objects launches DOTS Telephone Verification, a web service providing direct contact with online users via phone call or text message. It verifies and validates contact inputs: phone number is correct and working and associated with contact.
Service Objects ™, Inc. announces the release of DOTS Telephone Verification, a web service with optional integrated operations that add extra layers of security to online interactions and Internet-based business systems. Service Objects specializes in business-grade contact validation web services for leading companies in the U.S. and Canada and has developed this product to respond to their need for more control of their online interactions.
“Online fraud is rising, Our customers demanded a verification service with options for added layers of security that are invisible to end users; without impacting commerce.” says Dave Swan, CRO of Service Objects, “DOTS Telephone Verification stands apart from other phone verification services by expanding the security operations, allowing customers the flexibility to deploy as little or as much security as they need, depending on their individual circumstances.”
In general, telephone verification services work by sending authorization codes, or PINs, via phone calls or SMS text messages to people interacting with web forms. Many companies use phone verification services to not only confirm whether or not a telephone is working, but to update the telephone number record of the person associated with the transaction.
Service Objects’ DOTS Telephone Verification expands on this concept by also including optional operations that provide information such as a phone number’s exchange, including carrier, line type, city, and state; helping companies determine the origin of the call and the type of phone, (ex. VoIP, wireless, or landline). For even further insight, localized information about a phone number may be employed, such as the listed contact name, address, city and state, even latitude/longitude, in addition to exchange information. This allows companies to verify that people interacting with their web applications are associated with input phone numbers. The added services provide essential information that companies can use to determine whether or not to approve or deny an individual’s ability to complete an online transaction, prior to sending out a PIN.
