Marchex Clean Call 3.0 uses voice stream pattern recognition and machine learning algorithms to identify and block automated phone calls with fake Caller IDs. It is the only solution that does not use an Interactive Voice Response (IVR) system. In 2015, automated phone calls began adding simulated conversations, music, and radio feeds to toll-free numbers owned by businesses. In addition, many new types of spam calls are now are able to bypass Interactive Voice Response (IVR) systems used by traditional robocall blockers.

“Incoming robocalls are a real cost to businesses in terms of lost
productivity and toll free usage,” said
“Caller ID is trivial to fake, yet the traditional solutions rely on
blacklists of Caller IDs to stop spammers,” said
