Directory Assistance

Solutions for directory assistance services

Modular design - Adaptable to your needs

CreaLog offers a directory service solution for telephone numbers and other information that consists of the search engine (search algorithms) and graphical interface modules for the service agents. 
Our Professional Services team plans, designs, integrates and installs the directory assistance application as a turn-key solution together with the customer's IT specialists.


The fast and user-friendly search offers alias, demerit, phonetic or geographic search and multiple filter options to narrow down the results.
Keyboard "Hotkeys" speed up filtering and the navigation within the interface.

The powerful and flexible platform collects and cleanses data from a single or multiple sources and generates and regularly updates a complete, up-to-date database.


The information requested by callers is researched by staff using the graphical interface and then output in one of the following ways:

  • Announcement of the searched information
  • Sending the requested information as text message
  • Announcement of the requested information and forwarding to the target number
  • Announcement of the searched information and sending as text message

Directory Assistance ACD (Automated Call Distribution) for call routing

The CreaLog Directory Assistance Contact Center (DACC) is optimized for directory assistance applications and offers an agent menu for logging in and out, status selection ready/pause and selection options for outputting the found information and forwarding of the call.

The DACC administration interface is used to manage agents and their skills, configure individual greetings and set up call queues. The multi-level rights and role concept facilitates assignment within your own organization and collaboration with external service providers.

"Our main project success factors were:
Building on a modular platform enabled us to quickly introduce additional features while the seamless migration to the new platform avoided any service disruption. The switch from on-premises to
CreaLog’s hosted solution enhanced our operational flexibility particularly in case of “emergency“ situations. But most importantly, the reduction of operating costs of the Directory Assistance Service increased our bottom line and secured a long-term revenue contribution for Deutsche Telekom."
