Update to GTL’s Agent Portal Voice Verification

You asked… and we listened! We have added a new DOB submission method on the Agent Portal Voice Verification call. Your clients now have the option to input their date of birth through their phone keypad. In order for the AI to interpret the DOB correctly through the keypad, it needs to be 8 digits in the form of 2 digit month, 2 digit day and 4 digit year. Example: 01/02/1960 Your client can still enter their DOB by voice if they so choose. Visit the Agent Portal   View Voice Verification FAQs     Update to GTL’s Agent Portal
