SearchBug Unveils Data Cleansing to Append Phone Numbers to Names and Addresses

A “phone only” option is now available to clients taking advantage of SearchBug’s Data Cleansing Service which “Appends Phone Numbers, Names, and Addresses to US Business and Consumer Lists Service.”

Encinitas, CA – May 3, 2016, a leading online service for finding people, businesses, addresses, phone numbers and more, has announced a new “phone only” option for clients using its data cleansing service “Append Phone Number, Name and Address to US Business and Consumer Lists” service.

Here’s how the new search option works: clients simply select the phone only option after uploading a file containing their data. SearchBug then scours dozens of premium sources, including social media profiles, for home, cell and work phone numbers that match the information to search by in the uploaded file.

“The new Phone Numbers Only option works with any list that contains a person’s first and last names and some location details, such as full street address, or city and state or just state,” said Noah Wieder of SearchBug.

The hit rate for the Phone Numbers Only option is approximately twice as high compared to the regular service. The main reason for this increase is that SearchBug premium sources include both work and cell phone numbers in additional to the landline numbers used for the standard service. The service returns and appends up to five (5) matching numbers for each record.

Wieder added that the new phone only option should not be used for data cleansing of business lists.

The standard data cleansing service “Append Phone Number, Name and Address to US Business and Consumer Lists” searches over 15 million business records from public directories and private sources as well as 220 million consumer records from public directories and private sources for such things as name, phone number, address, city, state and more.

Data uncovered by the cleansing service is validated by numerous proprietary processes with frequent NCOA updates for both business and consumer data.
