Introducing Telephone Validation

AFD Software’s new phone-validation feature can greatly reduce the number of errors (or invalid phone numbers) entered into your organisation’s records. You will have much more confidence in your data and customers will receive the communications you intended!

Just one incorrect digit can lead to your customer missing essential communications, order confirmations, delivery updates, appointment reminders and special offers.

AFD’s Telephone Validation solution validates UK landline, UK mobile and International telephone numbers at the point of entry. In addition, it shows whether the telephone number is currently “live” (but note that it does not verify that the number is correctly associated with a named individual or organisation).

On the rise

  • 78% of adults (over 16) own a smartphone today, compared with 17% in 2008.
  • In 2018, the average phone user checks their phone once every 12 minutes
  • In 2017 the UK had 92 million mobile subscriptions compared with 26.4 million residential landlines

GDPR Compliance
GDPR (article 5.1) requires that “Personal data shall be: (d) accurate and, where necessary, kept up to date”. AFD’s new service can help you meet the obligation to enter and maintain accurate, reliable information.
