phone CATI interviews
Computer Assisted Telephone Interviews is a practice for quick data collection, with no geographical constraints.
The questions are displayed on the monitor and read by the interviewer during a phone conversation. All the answers are recorded directly in the computer.
A careful recruitment of the telephone interviewers, training them for being convincing and neutral during reading the questions and answers, auditing the finalized calls and a manager always in contact with the interviewers are the ingredients of the success for this type of research. Technical infrastructure contains computers, servers, specialized software, high-speed internet connection - all these allow us to make phone calls using landline or mobile network in Rep. Moldova or other countries.
