What is Automatic Phone Survey

The Automated Phone Survey is voice call based survey that empowers you to deliver interactive voice response survey questions  through a cloud-based platform.

Automatic Phone Surveys utilize voice communication to conduct online surveys & polls, receiving responses in  cloud-based platforms. Automated Phone Survey allows us to record voice messages and create campaigns to collect survey responses over the telephone asking recipients a series of questions and creating a variety of reports based on the survey results.

A customer survey would be an ideal way for businesses to gather, evaluate, and take action on customer feedback. Customer’s voice affects every area and department within a company in order to solve customer concerns or to meet customer requirements. The good news is that it affects the whole company.

Importance of Automated Phone Survey

Automated Phone Survey is a web-based survey tool with questionnaire features. A voice call  survey and questionnaire can be created and taken anytime and anywhere. There is no limit to the number of surveys you can create. The automated phone surveys can be customized to meet the needs of any organization. Automated Phone surveys are a  great tool for customer satisfaction surveys and telephone polling. By integrating ASR in Automated Phone Survey Software, you can record results in text instead of audio. 

  • Voice of Customer

During the past few years, the term VOC (voice of customer) has gone viral. Despite this, Google Trends reports that consumer interest in voice has increased by more than 100 percent in the past few years.

  • Voice Survey Campaign

It is extremely important to conduct voice surveys in order to gain insights into customers and understand their perspectives. Voice surveys will help businesses increase customer satisfaction and improve the overall customer experience. You can retain customers by using voice surveys and control negative customer reviews at the same time.

  • Automated Speech Recognition (ASR)

An automated speech recognition (ASR) system lets users speak instead of typing numbers on a keypad to input data into information systems. Essentially, this is used for delivering information and forwarding incoming calls. The ASR algorithm converts audio files into text. Due to the analog nature of the audio, the digitized version is complex to store.

Types of Automated Survey Campaigns

In ICTBroadcast, there are two types of Automated Phone Survey Campaigns:

  1. Outbound Survey Campaign
  2. Inbound Survey Campaign 

Outbound Survey campaign

Any outbound call-based survey that starts with a list of telephone/mobile numbers falls under the category of mobile/phone surveys.

Inbound Survey campaign

In telephonic surveys, inbound calls are also used and inbound support functions are strictly inbound.

How Does Automated Survey Campaign Work?

Survey campaigns can be created with ICTBroadcast Auto Dialer software for telephone surveys and polls. Automated dialers use a telephone keypad to ask a series of questions to a list of numbers. This software automatically dials numbers with this software. The ICTBroadcast voice-recording features allow you to plan when to call, record your questions, and run a campaign. Your survey campaign can be viewed as a graph and a report, as well as the recorded responses of your prospects can be examined.

ICTBroadcast offers a voice survey campaign feature that enables you to run call-based surveys asking recipients multiple questions, and then creating useful reports from the survey responses.
