Traditional skip trace data wastes time and dials. CRM data is notorious for major gaps in coverage — often lacking as many as 40 percent of phone numbers — and gets 5 to 15 percent worse every month1. Credit bureaus emphasize quantity over quality and lack current insights for effectively reaching consumers. These poor data sources sap collections organizations’ profitability.

Further complicating efforts, most homes in the U.S. no longer have a landline phone.2 To mitigate the risk of TCPA violations, many high-volume calling companies are now dialing mobile phones manually, which is inefficient, costly, and not guaranteed to reach the intended contact. The CFPB’s Regulation F limits contacting consumers for the purpose of debt collection, making contact effectiveness even more critical.

With over 80 percent of outbound calls going unanswered or to the wrong party, and industry-wide right-party contact rates for skipped numbers hovering at 3 percent, how do you identify and prioritize the right numbers to call for greater operational efficiency and higher right-party contact rates?
