BigDataCloud's Phone Number Validation API is a simple yet powerful tool that offers worldwide international and national phone number validation based on the E.164, international telephone numbering plan. This API helps businesses maintain an accurate and clean customer database by identifying and validating phone numbers.
Phone numbers serve as vital customer identifiers for businesses for sending crucial updates, security OTP codes, and other important information. However, phone numbers are often inputted in various formats, causing inconsistencies and confusion for users when filling out contact information on forms, e-commerce/financial sites, and other platforms.
The Phone Number Validator API effectively addresses these concerns by validating and converting phone numbers to conform to the E.164 standard, international format, or national format, and determining the type of phone line (fixed-line, mobile, VoIP, etc.). Additionally, BigDataCloud’s phone number verification API offers country-level data, such as language, currency, income level, calling code, and flags, which enriches your customer data.
The advantages of utilising this API include minimising the risk of losing potential customers due to invalid contact information, streamlining the customer data cleaning and formatting process, reducing costs by detecting invalid phone numbers in SMS and voice call marketing campaigns, and mitigating the likelihood of spammers and malicious actors entering invalid phone numbers.
