Neustar Professional Services Directory Listing Audits

Increase Accuracy to Reduce Costs and Errors

Directory listings are essential to your customers, but they also represent a large expense for you. Directory Listings Audit services from Neustar Professional Services improve the accuracy of your listings for a better customer experience and prevent you from paying listing fees for telephone numbers no longer active in your network.

Our ordering, fulfillment and directory listing experts can identify potential customer issues created by data errors and omissions. The audit also provides an accurate accounting of the telephone numbers active in your network to verify numbers for which you should be billed, as well as cases where you are being over-billed for numbers no longer in service. Out-of-synch directory listings could be costing you tens of thousands of dollars, or more, each month.

Better Listings. Better Margins.

Directory Listings Audits improve the accuracy of your listings, which provides a better experience for your customers, especially business and commercial customers who heavily rely on directory listings. Identifying inaccuracies minimizes costly customer impacting errors and improves your overall bottom line.

  • Protect private listings from being mistakenly published
  • Ensure you only pay for telephone numbers in your inventory
  • Improve processes to ensure billing ends upon port or disconnect
