I’m so confused about IPSOS and Shopmetrics “side” vs “Sassie” side. I have 2 different logins for each. I signed up for a shop today requiring a quiz, but on my IPad the guidelines won’t load and I can’t access the quiz. I don’t have my laptop at the moment,... Continue Reading


Is it just me or has Ipsos since they merged with GFK gotten really vague on what the shop actually is? I've looked at both their e-mails and their job board postings and have actually not had a clue as to what I am supposed to do on the shop. What... Continue Reading

IPSOS Scheduling
