Mixed Mode Research –
The best of two worlds


The telephone as a market research tool? Well established for decades as a reliable and fast instrument for high quality surveys. And the Internet? Just a few years after it became an everyday tool for consumers in the early 2000s, it complemented traditional survey standards – for tech-savvy audiences who were either reluctant or difficult to reach by phone, and who wanted to control the moment in time to take part in the survey and in which pace to complete it.

A Heavyweight in Market Research: The Social Desirability Bias


»Do you find Germans inherently superior to other peoples?« – »Do you brush your teeth every night?« Extremely different questions, but they trigger the same reflex in surveys.

Let’s take the first statement regarding the superiority of the German people: it was only recently part of a representative study that citizens from the East German federal states were asked to answer – in writing and anonymously. Other questions in the same study – less polarising and rather innocuous – were asked of the participants personally by an interviewer.

Global yet personal:
Market Research via CATI

Düsseldorf, 25.05.2023

CATI means Computer Assisted Telephone Interviewing.

Yes, you read that right: The telephone that Alexander Graham Bell developed in Boston in 1876. But precisely because the telephone has been around for 147 years, it has stood the test of time: Today, there are more mobile phone contracts in the world than people. According to statista, 5.2 billion people used the Internet in April 2023, but already in 2021 more than 7 billion could be reached by phone. And the telephone offers another unique advantage over all survey methods. CATI can not only be scaled globally, but is also one thing above all: personal.
