SmartClean - Scrub Mailing Lists, Identify Wireless Telephone Numbers, Verify Ownership of Wireless Telephone Numbers and Append Names to Telephone Numbers - TCPA Compliance

In order to move forward with a successful marketing campaign or collection effort, you will need to ensure your compliance with consumer protection legislation like the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA). You will also want to contact responsive consumers as opposed to those consumers who have already taken efforts to reduce the amount of advertising they receive. The handling of your collection and marketing lists needs to be managed with close attention. By using our SmartClean service, you can take the burden of these concerns off your shoulders. You can send us your lists by uploading your file to our website and we will scrub the list for you. You may select one or more of the following options:

Output files - For the Mailing List Scrubbing service, please see  Output File Requirements

 

Wireless Telephone Number Identification service:

  • Wireless Telephone Number Identification requires that the telephone number be in the first field of the uploaded comma or tab delimited file (e..g., save your excell spreadsheet as a .txt comma or tab delimtied file).  Up to 19 other fields containing customer data may also be contained in the uploaded record.
  • Licensing arrangements with Neustar, the Ported Number Administrator, requires clients to have an annual subscription to the Ported Number Files prior to completely identifying cell phone numbers. If you choose not to purchase a subscription, the process will identify native wireless telephone numbers and not check for numbers that have been ported. We estimate that telephone numbers ported from landline to cell phones comprise approximately 5% of all wireless telephone numbers.
  • We strongly encourage you to purchase an annual subscription to the Ported number files (for pricing, see below). 
  • Within the hour, we will return two files (one containing wireless telephone numbers and the other landlines) in your original format.
  • Pricing for the wireless identification service is as follows:
    • $3 per 1,000 records uploaded
    • $75 job minimum for wireless identification services
    • $1,400 per year for access to the Ported Number files (prorated to 3/8/2018)

Input files may contain up to 20 fields of customer data in either a tab or comma delimited txt file and must contain the telephone number in the first field.  (e..g., save your excell spreadsheet as a .csv or tab delimtied file). 

Output files - the Wireless Identification service will return two output files in a format identical to the input file.  One file will be labeled as wireless and the other labeled as landline. 

 

 Wireless Ownership Verification (Identify Recycled Numbers) Service:

IMS's new service can identify a wireless telephone number that has been recycled since the last time it was contacted.  Simply provide us with a file of wireless numbers and the last date contacted, and we will tell you if the number has been reassigned.  The returned file will be marked as follows:

  • Y = Number may be called
  • N = Ownership has changed or number has been disconnected
  • U = Number cannot be identified

For just pennies a number, this new service will allow you to identify which wireless telephone numbers to stop calling so you can avoid fines that are pegged between $500 and $1,500 an occurance!

Please note:  We recommend that you first identify wireless telephone numbers by using our Wireless Block Identifier and Ported Number files or SmartClean "Wireless Number Identification Service", and then as a second step, send us only the wireless numbers rather than your entire file.  This will reduce the quantity of numbers you need to pass through the recycled number verification process and thereby reduce your costs.

We can verify mobile numbers from AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile, Assurance, Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile (95% of all wireless telephone numbers), and last-contact dates later than 2008.

The price for the recycled wireless ownership verification service is just $.06 per number ($60/1000) with a minimum of just $300 per upload, payable by credit card at the time of upload.

Input files may contain up to 20 fields of customer data in either a tab or comma delimited .txt file and must contain the telephone number in the first field and the date of last contact (format=xx/xx/xxxx) in the second field.  (e.g., save your Excel spreadsheet as a .csv or tab delimited file). 

Output files - the Ownership Verification service will append the Result Code (Y, N or U) as the last field in each record.

 

Telephone Number Name Appending Service:

Send IMS a file of landline and wireless telephone numbers and we will append the owners name.

This new service is just pennies a number and will help you identify the ownership of a telephone number, improving your marketing and collection efforts and perhaps saving you thousands of dollars in fines.

We can identify the ownership of telephone numbers from all carriers.  Please note that the match rate for mobile numbers is in the 50% range, however, you will only pay for numbers that we can identify.

The price for the Name Append Service is $.03 per number identified with a $300 minimum per upload.   The $300 minimum will be billed at the time of upload, payable by credit card.  The balance will be billed by invoice and emailed to the contact on file.

Input files may contain up to 20 fields of customer data in either a tab or comma delimited .txt file and must contain the telephone number in the first field.  (e.g., save your Excel spreadsheet as a .csv or tab delimited file). 

Output file will contain the match result code followed by the original data and the appended owners name in a comma delimited (.csv) record.
