Service Objects, a provider of real-time global contact data validation solutions, has released the latest version of its DOTS Lead Validation - International solution, offering multi-point contact validation, including business name, contact name, address, phone, email, and device for contacts in more than 250 countries and territories.

The new version has been optimized to better handle international leads that have foreign characters, checking to ensure  the foreign characters align with the geographic region where the contact is based. In addition, Lead Validation – International better supports leads that come in via IPv6 addresses.

Lead Validation - International cross-references customers' data points against hundreds of authoritative data sources, correcting and appending data where needed. These capabilities can be integrated directly with popular CRM and marketing automation platforms, and customized business logic can prevent junk and fraudulent leads from entering these systems.

"In today's challenging businesses climate, ensuring your sales and marketing teams have access to accurate and up-to-date leads is key to success. The latest release of Lead Validation - International combines intelligent analyses with the most authoritative data sources available to instantly weed out fraudulent and bogus leads at the point of entry," said  Geoff Grow, founder and CEO of Service Objects, in a statement.
