Dial2Verify is a PAAS ( Platform-As-A-Service ) start-up operated from Mumbai-Bangalore & UK. We provide extremely easy to use, yet very powerful API for implementing missed call based customer identity verification (as an alternative to OTP & Captcha).
We also have developed Plug-N-Play plugin on top of our platform, to integrate Dial2Verify services in 3rd party applications, with just one line of additional code.
Dial2verify now provides local number support for International customer verifications in USA / UK / Italy countries and soon we are planning to expand to new geographies.
Dial2Verify is India’s FIRST and the ONLY OPEN platform providing customer verification services in Cloud.

Tell us something about the technology behind Dial2Verify?
At the core of Dial2verify API Engine, is the hosted telephony and our proprietary software programs. In the recent API, we also added a new proprietary program ‘Automatic Switch Circuit`, which is responsible for keeping Dial2Verify service Up & Running.
What’s the programming language used for coding the APIs?
We have made use of Python for the Core API Engine program & Shell scripts wrapped within PHP for API Interface programming.
Is Dial2Verify useful for marketing & e-commerce firms only or can other kinds of companies benefit from it as well?
Dial2verify is useful to almost every business segment ( and not just specific industry domains ), where there is a need to build cleaner and trusted user-base, validate transactions etc. It’s URL forwarding feature enables developers to replace traditional way of customer interactions with legitimate missed call requests. For instance, Forgot password option can be replaced with a missed call to retrieve password ( Check here live example, http://usage.dial2verify.in ), another use case would be, you can be just a missed call away from your customers (rather than filling traditional contact us forms)
Businesses are using our API for following use-cases:
1. Signup Verification: For Building a clean, trusted & authentic user base by validating their telephone numbers.
2. Lead Generation: For Optimizing sales leads by maintaining accurate telephone data. Thereby maximizing ROI.
3. Transaction Authorization: By using Dial2Veriy as an alternative to OTP based transaction authorization. Thereby significant reduction in the upfront costs.
4. E-commerce Cash On Delivery: For Validating user identity before dispatching / accepting cash on delivery shipments. Thereby saving significant supply chain cost involved in fake order processing.
5. Missed call based event triggering: For executing remote URL action (ex. For raising support ticket / for running production jobs etc.)
How has been the response so far? How many firms have you signed up with till now?
Since the launch of our service, we could observe great momentum in its adaption. We launched Dial2Verify in APRIL 2013, and so far 92 Business are registered with us to use Dial2Verify Platform on their applications. (92 is the count as per today’s Ops report)
