Salt Lake City, UT, September 10, 2009—IAT, a leading provider of dialing communications solutions for the collection industry and related markets, announced today that it has signed a partnership referral agreement with PossibleNOW, a trusted source of internet-based privacy management tools that will primarily help IAT Customers comply with federal and state cell phone calling legislation.
Agencies that do not scrub for cell phones regularly might face large fines. Skepticism over the accuracy of services that scrub cell phone numbers from calling lists has convinced many agencies to make the choice to "take their chances" and not scrub their lists. IAT recommends the PossibleNOW third-party service because they update their data every 24 hours, test it, stand behind their accuracy, and in the nine years that they have been in business, no client has been fined as a result of using PossibleNOW's scrubbing technology. They also offer a premium filter list that can identify phone numbers ported from a land line to a cell phone.
"We're excited to partner with IAT," said Scott Frey, President & CEO of PossibleNOW. "We understand the risks associated with Do Not Call compliance, especially with dialing wireless phone numbers. Offering our compliance solutions with IAT's high quality dialer technology gives IAT customers a complete solution that can ensure compliance with the wireless rules and create a defendable Safe Harbor position.
"In addition, PossibleNOW's Data Services can identify landlines associated with wireless phone numbers," Frey continued. "This brings additional value by increasing the available contacts while ensuring Do Not Call compliance. And, our Data Services can also identify mailing addresses associated with phone numbers to provide another contact method."
Randy Cooper, President and CEO of IAT, says, "We are very excited to have the opportunity to participate in this partnership with PossibleNOW and offer our customers a valuable service that they can trust. We offer communication technology solutions through a variety of partners that add significant improvements in productivity to their already excellent collection products. PossibleNOW is the first cell phone scrubbing service that we have felt confident enough about to recommend to our customers. Their excellent reporting will help to ensure that our customers stay within the law when using our technology."
