Gryphon Networks Testifies Before House Committee on Michigan's Proposed Do-Not-Call Legislation

Available Through Technology



Apr 25, 2001, 01:00 ET from Gryphon Networks

    LANSING, Mich., April 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Gryphon Networks, the leading
 provider of automated privacy compliance solutions for business, testified
 today before the House Energy and Technology Committee.  Michael Loyack,
 director of regulatory affairs for Gryphon Networks, told the committee that
 the company's technology empowers direct marketers to automatically comply
 with proposed Do-Not-Call (DNC) legislation, such as House Bill 4042.
     "For years, DNC laws have been perceived to be too complex and
 unenforceable," said Loyack.  "I am here to testify that if House Bill 4042
 becomes law, Gryphon Networks' service enables any telemarketing firms calling
 Michigan residents to comply with the new law's provisions."
     Gryphon Networks' technology seamlessly integrates a network-delivered
 turnkey solution.  The service works two ways.  One, the interactive process
 blocks calls to consumers who already have been placed on state, federal and
 corporate DNC lists.  Two, by pressing "# 0," any telemarketer can instantly
 block a newly requested DNC number company wide, while still on the phone with
 the requesting party.  No other action is required.  In addition, the service
 monitors and automatically complies with any changes in the laws or DNC lists.
 Curfew compliance, area code updates and call log archiving are all
 automatically performed features.  Because Gryphon's service is network
 delivered, no hardware investment is required by its telemarketing clients.
     Keith Fotta, CEO of Gryphon Networks stated, "Leading teleservices firms
 in other states are embracing our technology because it allows them to
 increase productivity while complying with Do Not Call laws nation wide.  It
 really combines the best of both worlds -- consumers are empowered with
 choice, while direct marketers can better focus on qualified calls, improve
 productivity, and eliminate liability dangers."
