New apps help firms screen phone numbers on Do-Not-Call list
As firms scramble to comply with the Do-Not-Call (DNC) Registry rules that are now in force, new services have sprung up quickly to help them screen their extensive call lists.
One local firm, Straits Interactive, has developed paid software called SpiderGate, which works with free telephony app Hoiio to identify within seconds if a number is listed on the DNC Registry.
The app was developed by local telephony firm Hoiio.
The service is targeted at firms from sectors such as insurance and property, whose agents are constantly on the move.
