Number Registration versus Call Label Remediation

What is the difference between number registration and call label remediation?

Number Registration versus Call Label Remediation

Is call label remediation part of your success strategy? Many organizations operate under the misconception that registering their business phones with the phone companies and their analytics partners is the comprehensive solution to ensure uninterrupted communication with clients. This registration process is a critical step, as it involves making your business information known to the three major analytics partners responsible for applying call labels to phone numbers (e.g., spam risk, potential spam). Upon validation, your business may be assigned a better reputation score, which can help mitigate the risk of your calls being labeled negatively.

Why Call Label Remediation Is Important

However, the registration process itself does not grant your numbers immunity against being labeled or mislabeled as spam or fraud. It is also not guaranteed that your outgoing calls will be allowed to reach the consumer on some major networks. It’s a common fallacy to equate registration with a whitelist status; in reality, it merely provides the analytics engines with more context about your business, which can influence your reputation score positively.

The Role of Call Label Remediation

This is where call label remediation takes center stage. While phone number registration lays the groundwork by enhancing your visibility and reputation among analytics partners, it does not safeguard against the persistent challenge of your calls being mislabeled as spam. Call label remediation is the pivotal, ongoing process that all outbound call centers must engage in to protect and maintain their ability to communicate effectively and, most importantly, successfully.

Call label remediation involves the continuous monitoring of your registered phone numbers to detect any instance of them being unfairly labeled as spam or fraud. This is an area rife with complexities, as telecommunications is constantly changing, with algorithms (and policies) frequently updated and new criteria for labeling calls being constantly introduced.
