- Facing rapid social, technological and economic change, the traditional marketing research industry has adopted new tools and strategies to reposition itself in a more flexible, consultative and cost effective space. Telephonic surveys have made it possible for people to participate in surveys in real time. The answers captured using the CATI methodology are spontaneous and genuine which adds to the credibility of the data collected.The traditional online survey is a tool struggling with low participation rates, respondents speeding through surveys, data quality issues, and projectability concerns. Seminal Research aims to redefine this traditional marketing research approach using the CAWI or Phone-to-Web Methodology to increase participation and minimize data quality concerns by recruiting the respondents over the phone and ensuring that the qualified respondents participate online.
- Seminal Research uses CATI as an optimal tool of structured system for data collection by telephone that speeds up the collection and editing of micro data and also permits the interviewer to educate the respondents on the importance of timely and accurate data. The software is able to customize the flow of the questionnaire based on the answers provided.Identifying the relevant person plays a crucial role in the success of any market research study.Our Phone-to-Web or CAWI (Computer Aided Web Interviews) methodology aims at filtering databases, screening respondents and recruiting the right people for respective studies.We follow the following steps while conducting CATI/CAWI studies:
