Shopmetrics and ShadowShopper.com Announce Strategic Partnership
19 December 2016
Today, Shopmetrics/Research Metrics and ShadowShopper.com are excited to announce a strategic partnership that brings together the leader in mystery shopping software with the leader in shopper recruitment and shopper community management to drastically reduce scheduling costs across the industry. This partnership, and the massive investment involved, has resulted in the first enterprise-class shopper recruitment and scheduling tool.
Coupled with a robust support structure, customers will realize significant benefits from this service that combines the best of the Shopmetrics mystery shopping platform and ShadowShopper.com, including:
- Automated, real-time job posting from Shopmetrics' GigSpot platform to ShadowShopper.com
- Seamless integration of ShadowShopper.com recruitment and operational modules directly in the Shopmetrics platform
- The ability to easily schedule jobs and recruit using either platform
- A one-stop mobile app allowing mystery shoppers to access, receive and complete assignments
- Enterprise-level performance, reliability, and security for companies of all sizes
- Powerful and easy-to-use user interfaces on both desktop and mobile
Future development plans include a single sign-on process between the platforms, a one-click shopper apply process, and other powerful capabilities that will result in even greater time savings and efficiency for both mystery shoppers and mystery shopping providers.
"The integration of Shopmetrics' GigSpot service and ShadowShopper.com is extremely valuable as it maximizes efficiencies for both mystery shopping providers and mystery shoppers. Using the integrated service platform will enable companies to focus on servicing their clients rather than time-consuming operational tasks' said Liz Nienberg, partner and COO of ShadowShopper.com.
Robert Bleile, co-founder and Managing Partner of Research Metrics, added "ShadowShopper.com's vibrant community of over 6 million double-opted-in members and 10,000 to 30,000 new members every month, combined with the new service's seamless workload portability adds immediate value to Shopmetrics clients. Our clients will also benefit from ShadowShopper.com's deep operational expertise in shopper recruitment and community management."
"This partnership combines the best talent, vision and technology within both organizations. Fostering innovation in the mystery shopper community is the key to creating better products, more-engaged users and stronger links between shoppers and companies." commented Joseph Hashim, co-founder and President of Shopmetrics.
The service will be optimized to run on both companies' latest-generation platforms, with the first integration modules scheduled for release in December 2016.
