Creditors and collections agencies in today’s environment must overcome a unique set of regulatory compliance and operational challenges. First, they need to accurately verify consumer contact information before auto dialing to mitigate the risk of violating the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA). At the same time, they need to implement this contact verification without sacrificing operational efficiency and productivity. With Neustar On-Demand Verification® possible to instantly and accurately verify phone data while protecting your top and bottom line.

Efficiently Mitigate TCPA Compliance Risk

Due to TCPA regulations, creditors and collections agencies are restricted from sending text messages to wireless phone numbers or using autodialers to call wireless phone numbers — unless prior express consent is provided by the subscriber. If an organization fails to verify the current phone type and autodials wireless phone numbers without consumer consent, then that organization risks violating TCPA which can lead to costly fines and litigation.

However, organizations must now go beyond verifying the current phone type as either a landline or cell phone to further verify the current subscriber. This is due to new TCPA interpretations that hold an organization liable for auto dialing a wireless phone number, even if consent was received in the past, if that wireless number has since been reassigned to a new subscriber. This drives the need for authoritative phone verification that is accurate, up-to-date, and includes wireless phone data.

Instantly Verify Consumer Contact Information

Contact verification can be time consuming and cumbersome because phone data is constantly changing. As an example, phone numbers can be ported from wireline to wireless devices and vice versa. Phone numbers can also be reassigned from one subscriber to another. Wireless phone data is particularly difficult to verify because it is typically private information. To complicate things further, 1 in every 3 households now rely solely on cell phones and do not have a landline. This means organizations need a strategy for dealing with this growing pool of strictly regulated, hard-to-verify data.

This solution also provides additional insights to increase operational efficiency and productivity, such as appending additional contact information and providing insights into recent phone activity or inactivity.
