Direct Media Marketing’s call center facility has 16 CATI interview stations networked to the main on-site server, with an offsite backup server for data security and recovery. In addition to our internal CATI capabilities, each call station is equipped with internet access to enable web hosted interviewing.
Outbound hours of operation are Monday through Friday, 9:00 A.M. to 10:00 P.M. EST, and on weekends from 6:00 P.M. to 10:00 P.M. Hours are customized based on project needs.
We have created a comfortable, intimate environment, with acoustically shielded call stations. By design, our call center is one of the quietest in the industry, producing higher cooperation ratios. Respondents receiving calls from our interviewers are not distracted by typical background chatter which has proven to be a deterrent in obtaining quality data.
We offer the highest level of personalized service and data quality that only an owner-operated call center can achieve. From planning to successful completion and reporting, every project is managed and directed by a company principal.
