Number Testing

Number Testing

How it works...
  1. Automated test calls are placed from within the same country as the toll or toll-free number (TFN) being tested
  2. Calls are connected to a test audio prompt by enabling an ANI/CLI check or navigating through a hidden IVR option
  3. A recorded piece of audio is played during the test call and this piece of audio is measured for quality using an international industry standard measurement scale
  4. The result of the test call is reported in the system in real time with automated failure reports generated if required
  5. Your audio quality score is benchmarked against millions of similar tests carried out by Spearline
  6. The entire test call is recorded for playback at any time

Customer Use Case

Worldwide monitoring of mission critical toll and toll-free numbers

Our customer maintains dozens of toll and toll-free numbers worldwide for their sales and customer service functions. When we first approached them they were content with the service they provided and were not aware of any major issues or customer complaints with either numbers failing or poor audio quality. We started to test their most important numbers as a proof of concept and were able to identify immediately some audio quality issues in particular countries. 

Following our advice our customer was able to work with their carriers on areas where transcoding was leading to quality issues.  The numbers were re-tested and showed a 40% increase in audio quality. These numbers are now scheduled for automatic testing as part of our customers overall testing programme and have real time alerts where the quality falls below agreed limits or the numbers fail to work.
