Convoso, provider of outbound contact center solutions, and Contact Center Compliance, a compliance solution suite, are jointly announcing a new API integration within the Convoso platform to automate filtering of numbers registered with “Do Not Call” lists to remove them from lead dialing lists. The new integration will help customers comply with the TCPA and “Do Not Call” rules, improve administrative efficiency, and minimize the risk of human error when scrubbing lists.
“Do Not Call” (DNC) registries consist of individual consumers who have registered their phone numbers (mobile or landline) to opt out of receiving marketing or promotional calls. To comply with the TCPA and the FTC, outbound call centers must not dial any consumer who has registered with the National Do Not Call Registry, or a state DNC lists.

The new integration gives Convoso customers direct access to dnc.com within the Convoso dialer so that they can automate lead filtering for both state and national DNC registries. This automation reduces the amount of time it takes to scrub lists, resulting in improved dialing efficiency.
The new capability also helps protect customers from litigation initiated by lawyers who register numbers for the purpose of “catching” a business calling a number, even in error, so they can pursue legal damages against the company. These legal traps can have a severe impact on profits for outbound call centers as they are forced to combat opportunistic lawsuits and/or have to pay fines.
“TCPA and DNC lawsuits are put-your-lights-out statutes,” said Ryan Thurman, Director of Sales & Marketing at Contact Center Compliance. “Having a real-time scrubbing process for DNC, TCPA, and serial litigators should be a part of every lead buyer, seller, contact center, or enterprise as the stakes are too high. Convoso has made it easy for their customers to scrub for serial litigators, federal and state DNC, line type status, calling time restrictions, state holidays, and ultimately achieve TCPA and DNC safe harbor for risk mitigation and automation for omnichannel campaigns.”
“This integration is the best way for our customers to avoid lawsuits related to Do Not Call registries,” said Bobby Hakimi, Convoso Chief Product Officer and Co-Founder. “We work hard to keep our customers up-to-date with tools and strategies that support compliance with the TCPA and other regulatory requirements. In our industry, especially today, call center operations have to stay alert on so many fronts. That’s why we’ve partnered with Contact Center Compliance to bring our customers an accelerated track for removing registered DNC numbers from their lead lists.”
