Mobyquest Gains Critical Phone Number Insights Using Nexmo Number Insight API

Published January 14, 2016 by Cyprien Godard

Mobyquest is a leading provider of MMS based applications. Through its exclusive agreements with telecom operators, the company provides its customers, including marketing agencies, web agencies, brands, and content publishers with highly competitive pricing for MMS messaging.

Despite their exclusive agreements with telecommunications operators, Mobyquest needed a way to determine the correct carrier for each phone number in its database. Due to poor performance of past partners, Mobyquest sought a cloud communications API to provide the most accurate phone number insight, with the lowest latency and cost.

To overcome this challenge, Mobyquest partnered with Nexmo to take advantage of its global scalability and easy-to-integrate

Number Insight API. This enabled them to:

  • Determine the type and carrier of every phone number in their database
  • Receive phone number insights synchronously in real time and, thereby eliminating latency issues
  • Route its MMS and SMS messages to the correct carrier
  • Obtain the highest accuracy information while maintaining the lowest costs

Overall, Mobyquest saw great success and achieved a 95% accurate match for number type and carrier, significantly minimized overall communications costs, provided a highly efficient, low latency service to its customers, and decreased development resources by using Nexmo’s easy-to-integrate API.

“After working with several cloud communications partners that provided inaccurate and pricey solutions, it was refreshing to find Nexmo. We were able to fit our app’s logic with their flexible Number Insight API, giving Mobyquest the ability to chose which insights I want to receive and which ones I’d rather do without,” said Nicolas Auboin, Lead Engineer of Mobyquest. “We also required a solution that would work seamlessly with the same level of accuracy as we expand operations across Europe, and Nexmo truly delivered.”
