TNS Selected for Membership in Avaya DevConnect Program

TNS joins network of companies transforming customer engagement with solutions

that leverage the capabilities of Avaya’s leading cloud communications portfolio.

Reston, VA, May 14, 2024 – Transaction Network Services (TNS), a market leader in call analytics and robocall mitigation, announced today that it has been selected by Avaya for membership as a Technology Partner in the Avaya DevConnect program. Avaya’s innovative solutions transform the customer experience and give organizations the freedom to choose their path and pace that deliver the greatest business benefits.

TNS’ Enterprise Product Suite solutions can help mitigate the relentless onslaught of robocalls eroding trust in the voice channel and creating unprecedented customer engagement challenges. With TNS Enterprise Authentication and Spoof Protection, CPaaS, CCaaS, and enterprise SBC providers can help clients protect their brand and customers from robocall spoofing. Further, contact centers can gain a competitive edge through increased call answer rates by deploying TNS Enterprise Branded Calling to present rich brand information on every outgoing call.

As a DevConnect Technology Partner, TNS enables enterprise contact centers within ‘high-touch’ industries to deliver spoof protection and branded calling to help increase customer call answer rates, improve customer conversion rates, reduce voice fraud, and protect a business’ reputation.

“TNS Enterprise Authentication and Spoof Protection mitigates the risks posed by scam robocalls to the enterprise-customer relationship and brand reputation, allowing businesses to restore trust in the voice channel,” said Jim Tyrrell, Vice President of Global Product Strategy for TNS Communications Market. “Being part of the Avaya DevConnect program allows us to extend the reach of TNS contact center solutions to Avaya customers.”

TNS Enterprise Authentication allows only authenticated calls to reach the end consumer, while Spoof Protection ensures unverified calls are immediately blocked. With TNS Enterprise Branded Calling, enterprises can brand incoming call screens with rich brand information – such as the enterprise name and logo – to arm call recipients with the knowledge of who is actually calling.

“Technology Partners like TNS are enabling Avaya contact center users to differentiate their customer experience by offering a unique solution to navigate pesky robocalls and mitigate associated scams,” said Eric Rossman, Vice President, Strategic Alliances and Technology Partners, Avaya. “TNS is a welcome addition to the valued members of our DevConnect program.”

matter. The program promotes the development, compliance-testing and co-marketing of innovative third-party solutions that are compatible with standards-based Avaya solutions, including Avaya Experience Platform™ Public Cloud.
