Reliable Phone Number Information

Even in today's world of mobile, VoIP, and burner phones, in order to connect to the telephone network, every phone number must be associated with an actual, physical switch.

Unlike services that attempt to tie phone numbers to users using third-party data, Scout uses the authoritative carrier data, without which, a number could not exist.

Scout makes it easy to learn valuable information about your North American customers (+1 phone numbers), reduce fraud, and make more intelligent decisions.

  • Geographic Information

    Obtain carrier data that connects each North American phone number to a City, State, LATA and Time Zone.

  • Dependable Data

    Scout sources government and other authoritative data, as opposed to commercial and user-created data, to provide reliable intelligence on each request. As a result, all valid numbers should return a minimum of country, state, and city info.

  • Economical

    Scout is priced to enable large batch operations on big-data or as additional information on real-time calls.

  • Operating Company Data

    Learn the Operating Company information for all North American numbers, even if the number has been ported to a new carrier. This information includes the carrier name, the carrier type, and Operating Company Number.
