AFFIRM Enhances Your Business Reputation

Being tagged as spam or scam prevents you from completing successful calls, requiring you to invest countless dollars in repeat call attempts.

Businesses with moderate to high outbound call activity are particularly susceptible to tagging and can go days to weeks without knowing their outbound calls are being tagged.

What if there was a product that alerted you anytime your calls were tagged as spam or scam on devices across the three major U.S. mobile carriers?

AFFIRM Reputation Monitoring is your innovative solution, delivering detailed call display data and tag alerts via First Orion’s Customer Portal.

The Barrier to Legitimate Business Calls

Businesses rely on phone calls to engage with customers, but an improper label can decrease answer rates.

First Orion customer, Pacific Debt Relief, faced the problem of legitimate business calls being tagged as spam or scam, significantly decreasing customer engagement. These outbound calls to mobile devices were often intended for prospects who filled out online forms wanting to speak with someone about debt relief. The added stress of validating numbers manually using three mobile devices was impacting the technical team, costing time and money.

AFFIRM’s Impact on Business Efficiency

By automating the call monitoring process, Pacific Debt Relief saved approximately 617 person-hours per month, equating to $3,940 per month compared to manual dialing.

AFFIRM Rebuilds Trust in Your Phone Calls

Your business reputation can become tarnished when a customer sees a spam or scam tag related to your business numbers, impacting their trust in your call interactions.

Pacific Debt Relief saw a decrease in tags across all carriers, with spam tags dropping to zero over time.

“AFFIRM has given us peace of mind, allowing us to know exactly what is happening with our numbers and maintaining our high customer satisfaction rating.”
– Anthony Zoblescin, Director of Information Technology, Pacific Debt Relief
