Operating Company Name Lookup (OCNL™)
When wireline or wireless subscribers get better offers from other providers, they often switch. The carriers who lose these subscribers learn only that the number has been ported and the billing has been changed. It's a little like going back to college after the summer and finding that your best friend from last year has transferred to some other school without telling you.
Accudata’s OCNL service helps carriers find these lost subscribers and win them back. As carriers receive notices, they compile a list of lost subscribers and send the names to Accudata. Using its OCNL service, Accudata searches a series of databases throughout North America for the lost subscribers. After we locate the subscribers, we respond to the original carrier, identifying each subscriber’s new carrier – usually within 24 hours of the initial request and often in real time.
