How it works
tyntec’s Phone Verification is a web service that responds with information related to phone numbers to provide actionable insights for brands to ensure their customer records are accurate, improve success rates for customer outreach, and guard against bad actors.
Connected to real time and up-to-date data sources from mobile operators, national regulators, industry associations and other validated partners, the Phone Verification API makes it simple to integrate the service directly into any stage of the customer journey, from sign-ups to customer service and engagement campaigns. As an open standards API (REST), it provides complete programmability to implement the verification features for unintrusive user experiences.
Delivered as a web tool, in addition to the API, brands can also access the service simply by uploading a list of phone numbers in the tyntec Business Center and download the verification results.
