New and Improved Global Phone Verification

Turn Big Data into Smart, Trusted Assets
Melissa Data has just released its new and improved Global Phone v4 Web Service for the most accurate solution for phone number cleansing and validation.

Global Phone v4 takes advantage of several solutions combined into a single service, including Global Telco Data and more importantly, Home Location Register (HLR) Lookup. The integration of HLR into the Global Phone v4 solution introduces a much higher accuracy rate, especially when it comes to validating mobile phone numbers.

The new Global Phone also provides a list of suggestions for wrongly formatted phone numbers. For example, where certain digits may be missing (such as the country code), the service has the ability to return suggested phone numbers in order to provide possibilities for corrections to a user.

Take advantage of this new and powerful solution for maintaining clean, standardized, and validated phone numbers for over 240 countries. Visit us online for more information!
