Press Release—Intelligent Contacts Helping Clients Placing Legitimate Business Calls From Being Mistakenly Blocked By Carriers
PLANO, TX—Intelligent Contacts, a leading provider of contact center software to the financial services and healthcare industries, soothed concerns from its clients that the FCC’s recent ruling allowing telephone carriers to filter out suspected robocalls by default will mistakenly block important calls made to customers.
“This month’s ruling could have a significant impact for some businesses, but I expect the impact for our clients will be minimal,” said Intelligent Contacts CEO Jeff Mains. “We began working with our providers over a year ago to ensure every number we provide our clients has been properly renewed and registered. As phone carriers begin applying their call-blocking filters, we expect that our clients will be rewarded by our due diligence.”

Most carriers have had some version of call filtering in place for years, but prior to the recent FCC ruling, this service was turned off by default.
Even FCC Commissioner Expressed Concern Over RulingFCC Commissioner Michael O’Rielly voiced his concerns about giving carriers the authority to decide between “wanted” and “unwanted” calls.
“Giving carriers such vast discretion to decide which calls are unwanted could lead to wanted calls, containing highly-pertinent consumer information, being blocked.
Banking Customers Could Mistakenly Get BlockedNAFCU Vice President Carrie Hunt, whose organization joined nine other financial institutions urging the FCC to revisit the decision, expressed concerns “necessary and time-sensitive calls and texts would still be significantly delayed or prevented entirely as a result of this policy.”
“Until caller ID authentication is in place, there is a risk legitimate calls will get blocked, so it’s essential to follow best practices,” said Mains. “Properly managing and registering DIDs isn’t complicated, but it’s a step some wholesalers don’t bother to take, and many software providers don’t know to ask.”
