Branded Calling Solutions: Restoring Trust in Voice Calling Amid Robocall Concerns
Transaction Network Services (News - Alert) (TNS) recently released its 2023 Robocall Investigation Report, examining the effects of STIR/SHAKEN implementation, robocall volume and scams, as well as the role of branded calling solutions in restoring trust in voice calling. The 10th Edition of this bi-annual Robocall Investigation Report provides data in order to help carriers make informed and data-driven decisions.
As carriers implemented STIR/SHAKEN and regulators increased enforcement efforts in 2022, unwanted robocall volume decreased by 11% compared to the previous year. And while that's great, the report also highlights the massive need for improvements in call authentication accuracy to reinforce the framework's long-term impact.
Mike Keegan, CEO of TNS (News - Alert), emphasized that while unwanted robocall volume has been in a slight decline, the final stage of STIR/SHAKEN implementation in June 2023 will lead to further progress in robocall mitigation. He also noted that broader adoption of branded calling solutions is essential for consumers to trust calls from legitimate brands (rather than convincing bad actors) and for businesses to improve customer call answer rates and impactful engagement.
Key insights from the TNS 2023 Robocall Investigation Report include:
The 2022 midterm elections demonstrated that bad actors use robocalls and robotexts to spread disinformation, with nearly 35 million robocalls made in the 14 weeks leading up to the elections and 59% of voters believing these calls were attempts to undermine confidence in the elections.
