REST API Grants Access To tyntec's Global Number Portability and Verification, Reducing Deployment Time When Enabling Phone Number Intelligence
Munich, San Francisco, August 13, 2015 - tyntec, a telecom-web convergence company, today announced the launch of its REST API for Number Information Services (NIS), granting developers the full capabilities of tyntec's Global Number Portability and Global Number Verification services, which provide intelligence on phone numbers such as portability information, phone status, roaming and geographic data. Using the REST API, businesses are able to validate customer mobile data, ensure user registration and activation, deploy user authentication, manage employee mobile access, as well as optimize SMS and voice routing. The launch of tyntec's REST API for NIS follows on the heels of two additional API launches earlier this year - REST API for Outbound SMS as well as SMS Pricing & Coverage API. The company's ongoing effort to broaden its API offering is a testament to tyntec's commitment to simplifying the integration of telephony functionality and gleaning intelligence for all businesses across the board.
Ponemon Institute research indicates that registration, login, and transactions are the most popular reasons companies implement mobile number verification, and that invalid mobile numbers account for 48% of failed one-time passcodes. Additionally, contextual information is more relevant than ever, with more enterprises incorporating phone information into their customer engagement strategy - avoiding user outreach when the subscriber's phone is roaming or off, for example. That's an enormous amount of commercial activity and customer interaction relying on accurate mobile verification and instant network insight. For the businesses and developers involved, data delays and inaccuracies carry real monetary and security implications, so ease of integration and broad network access are essential to their success.
The REST API for Number Information Services allows developers to easily integrate verification capabilities into consumer and enterprise applications, as well as websites. Unlike other number verification APIs, tyntec's extensive network of operator relationships makes their API the most expansive in the industry. tyntec's Number Information Services cover 600 carriers across 180 countries, and provide access to local number portability databases in over 30 countries. The result is up-to-date phone identity information delivered in real time from anywhere in the world.
Key benefits provided by the REST API for Number Information Services include:
"It takes two elements to make phone number intelligence integration work: an easily integrated API and vast access," said Marco Lafrentz, tyntec's Senior Product Manager. "With REST API we've facilitated both: developers get to work with a familiar API, while businesses reap the benefits of the industry-leading global number information access that tyntec is known for."
