Typical usage scenario

SMS is used by all company sizes, in all industries all over the world. SMS is fast, personal, secure, and has the highest and fastest open-rate of any communication channel available at the moment.

Use SMS for example to send:

  • one-time-passwords for secure login to employees, suppliers, and customers
  • order delivery status updates to customers
  • mobile customer questionnaires for measuring your service quality
  • (critical) announcements, updates, or alerts to employees
  • special offers to customers and prospects
  • appointment reminders to patients

Number verification helps to keep your database clean, reduce human errors, improve the communication between you and your audience and reduce fraud risks.

Typical usage of Number Verification:

  • Use Number validation to validate the user input for mobile or fixed numbers in web forms
  • Use Number validation to categorize numbers in your database as mobile or fixed
  • Use Number lookup to clean up your database and remove invalid or unavailable numbers
  • Use Number lookup to prevent ATM card cloning fraud by checking the current location of a mobile number
