Telephone surveys (CATI)

Computer Assisted Telephone Interviewing (CATI or Telephone Surveys) are an efficient way of collecting information while conducting quantitative market research. They take place on the telephone and respondents are asked questions from a pre-designed questionnaire.

The main advantages of telephone surveys are efficiency, relatively low costs, the availability of a large variety of tools for quality control as well as the possibility to interview any hard-to-reach categories of respondents. All conversations are recorded and the audio recordings can be listened to at a later date.

During telephone surveys, calls can be made to randomly generated numbers and also to specially selected respondents that have been previously provided by the customer.

In telephone interviews, 4Service uses special solutions for companies serving the mass market.

CATI is a method used to collect quantitative information by conducting telephone interviews using a clearly structured questionnaire. 4Service uses two communication platforms to implement CATI: Infinity and Oktell.
