Many precision polling customers will be looking for an alternative to Survey Monkey as they announced earlier in the year by email and their sign-in page they had decided to close down the automated telephone survey business they acquired in 2010.
Obviously, VIRTUATel are a great alternative to Survey Monkey telephone surveys as we provide the features found at Precision Polling plus many, many more. We are not a free – or even very-low-cost – automated telephone survey service but we are a more “hands-on” service, and pride ourselves on the flexibility and responsiveness of our team. Conducting many millions of telephone surveys per month, VIRTUATel are probably the market leader, based on survey volume.
As their website states “We regret to inform you that Precision Polling will shut down on March 31, 2016. We are not allowing new users to sign-up, and will no longer process payments. “ you may like to consider VIRTUATel as the alternative to Survey Monkey, you seek.
And why are SurveyMonkey closing Precision Polling? One can only assume that either they have not discovered how to make a profit from automated telephone surveys or the telephone channel does not fit into their longer term plans.
VIRTUATel would happily discuss with anyone without a home for their automated telephone surveys, the conversion of their current surveys and polls to our Synaptum platform – the alternative to Survey Monkey.
For those that did not see the email to customers, some of the details published on their website are as follows;
