"The combination of the two companies is a major win for TRUSTID customers," said TRUSTID CEO Patrick Cox. "Neustar’s powerful identity data joined with TRUSTID’s market leading authentication system will drive further efficiency within call centers by increasing the precision for risk stratification of non-authenticated inbound calls. Our combined solutions will improve the customer experience, increase authentication rates, and remove additional friction through improved caller matching to existing CRM records using Neustar’s AccountLink."
Longer term, TRUSTID’s authentication technology will be extended to outbound calling use cases, further enriching Neustar’s existing solutions that boost customer contact rates and engagement. These products will all be part of the Neustar Risk Solutions portfolio that leverages OneIDTM, the company’s identity system.
"Our Risk business is a strategic priority for Neustar’s growth and this transaction represents a significant investment to deliver a broader solution set and enrich future capabilities," said Neustar President and CEO, Charlie Gottdiener. "By combining our solutions with TRUSTID, we will deliver more value to our customers, further enhance our market leadership and welcome new employees with significant subject matter expertise and industry knowledge."
The transaction is expected to close in January, 2019.
