Telephone survey market research is one of the most widely used methods employed to obtain quantitative data. As the name suggests, the survey is conducted over the telephone. A telephone survey is also known as CATI that stands for “Computer Assisted Telephone Interviewing”.
A computerised telephone survey can be used to find out if your customers are satisfied with your product or not. You can find out how often they use one of your services or products on daily basis. Basically, when you need to quantify user input through a set of pre-recorded questions, you can easily use computerised telephone surveys.

Benefits of conducting telephone surveys on computer assisted telephone interviews
One of the greatest benefits of conducting telephone surveys is the wider accessibility of prospective respondents. For example, more than 95% population in the UK has a phone in one way or another (mobile or landline). Every phone owner is a perspective telephone survey participant.
Your reach is not limited by your physical limitation. You can be based in one city and conduct a telephone survey in another without much workforce. Most of the tasks are handled automatically by computers and the telephone network. Sometimes you can just feed the contacts database into your computer systems along with the survey script you have got and set the timing. The survey will be automatically triggered at the designated time.
CATI also facilitates quick data processing. Both, previous data and real-time data can be analysed very fast through computer assisted telephone interviews.
There is greater data accuracy since every information is directly fed into your computer systems. The only other errors that can occur are those that originate from respondents otherwise, there are practically no errors.
The respondents enjoy anonymity and this encourages them to open up with their opinions. No one is sitting in front of them as it happens in face-to-face interviews. Although, you can say that when you have someone’s contact number, you also have his or her name (in many cases, also address), but at the time of participating in the survey, a user thinks that no one is directly observing him or her and hence, feels more confident and prone to providing answers to most of the questions.
Disadvantages of using telephone surveys
The accuracy of the feedback is entirely dependent upon sincerity of the participants. Since no one is observing them, everything depends on their whim and fancy.
Sometimes the timing can be inconvenient to the participant and he or she may simply ignore the phone call or put the phone down.
Also, a telephone survey is confined to only those people who have a telephone. Although, this is not a disadvantage per se because most of the people these days have a telephone, but still, if a portion of the population that is relevant to your research does not possess a telephone, this can be a disadvantage.
