What is a CATI Survey?
CATI Survey—short for Computer-assisted telephone interview—is a method of collecting data where an interviewer calls a participant and follows a script on their computer. The responses are entered directly into the CATI app, allowing for real-time data validation & reports. In many cases, CATI is a superior alternative to in-person interviews and an efficient method of surveying hard-to-reach populations for qualitative research.
How We Make CATI Surveys Easy for You
engageSPARK’s CATI Surveys are very similar to pen and paper surveys: your interviewer talks to the participant, following a set of questions, and records the answers. The big difference with CATI lies in the app that helps you create the survey script and record the answers.
Our cloud-based self-service app allows you to design your CATI Survey questions and logic, upload the phone numbers of your program participants, and assign them to your trained interviewers. Oh, and calls can be made directly from the browser—no hassle with managing phones.
