"We opened in 1972 without photocopiers, faxes, E-mail and the Internet.  But none of these advances has had a greater impact on our business than SASSIE. The people at SurfMerchants thought of everything.  When they created this software they really understood the needs of mystery shops, and the tech support is second to none. I would recommend SASSIE to any Mystery Shopping company, regardless of size."
- Doug Dunlap, Hilli Dunlap Enterprises, Inc.

"Our business could not have not grown as fast or be as streamlined as it is without the power of SASSIE. SASSIE allows us to concentrate on obtaining new business while it effectively automates many facets of current business. There is no doubt in my mind that the entire Mystery Shopping industry has benefited from the SASSIE system."
