[Stockholm, 2023-08-31] Truecaller, the leading caller identification and call blocking application with over 350 million users worldwide, is thrilled to announce the adoption of Validio, an AI-based Deep Data Observability platform

After successfully building in-house solutions for data quality, Truecaller has chosen to partner with Validio to enhance its data quality practices further. The adoption of Validio's platform will empower Truecaller’s data teams to continue delivering business value.

Truecaller serves more than 350 million users globally with crucial information about unknown callers and assisting in the prevention of spam calls and messages. Data and analytics is a core enabler of their company strategy and competitive edge. Truecaller’s data teams previously built their own in-house anomaly detection and data quality tooling. However, the company recognized the need for a more scalable, low-maintenance, and robust solution that could accommodate all of their data use cases.

Validio is a Stockholm-based Deep Data Observability company that helps their customers gain trust in their data. Validio uses machine learning and AI to proactively catch and help fix silent data quality issues—before they negatively impact the business. The real-time Deep Data Observability platform offers powerful anomaly detection models and scalable technology, making it an ideal choice for Truecaller's vast data volumes, stored in over 5000 data warehouse tables. Validio  is able to support all Truecaller’s advanced use cases, including multi-BU churn modeling, fraudulent activity monitoring, and SMS spam detection, reinforcing its value for Truecaller's data management requirements.

Anil Sharma, Director, Head of Data Science and Analytics, also expressed his excitement about the adoption of Validio: "The biggest strength of Validio was the ease of measuring data quality and detecting data anomalies over a wide range of dimensions. I was also impressed with the ability to train the model on historical data and validate its results on known data problems."

The adoption of Validio represents a significant milestone for Truecaller, reinforcing their commitment to delivering reliable and trustworthy data services to their vast user base. By partnering with Validio, Truecaller continues to position itself as a leader in the industry, leveraging cutting-edge technology to maintain data quality to propel innovation.

Patrik Liu Tran, CEO, and Co-founder of Validio expressed his excitement about the partnership, stating:

"Working with the talented data team at Truecaller is an honor. I’m excited to drive business impact together with them, and to be a key enabler in the next phase of their data journey"
