We unveiled an exciting new feature in December which I think you will love. This feature allows you to send calls, texts, and surveys in multiple languages.

In January, we introduced the CATI survey (Computer-assisted telephone interviewing) in the engageSPARK platform. Now, you can survey your program participants via SMS, Voice calls, WhatsApp, and through CATI – all in one platform.

The Philippines was struck by a powerful and catastrophic category 5-equivalent super typhoon. Multiple islands in the country and their residents have been affected. Several non-profit organizations and businesses used the engageSPARK platform to blast out text messages to their contacts to warn them of impending landfall and areas affected. In the aftermath of the super typhoon, organizations also pushed out messages requesting donations for families affected by the calamity.

New Feature

Live Interview using CATI Survey (Computer-assisted telephone interviewing)


CATI Survey—short for Computer-assisted telephone interviewing—is a way of collecting data where an interviewer calls a participant’s phone number, follows a questionnaire on their computer and records responses within the system. It is an efficient method of surveying hard-to-reach populations for quantitative research.

We are introducing CATI Survey so you can easily call your contacts and interview them anytime. You can assign a group of contacts to your interviewers so they only interview those assigned to them and then set pre-defined questions that they must follow while on the call.

Even more, your interviewers can place calls from within your browser—while still using the full power of our global voice platform. No more managing physical phones and the hassle that goes along with them.

The CATI Survey is still in the very early stage and we are adding more and more features to it each week.
