Ipsos Marketing has developed a new screening approach – one that leverages learnings from behavioral science and cognitive psychology to capture consumer reactions without the use of scaled responses. Using a gamified approach that is fast, intuitive and device agnostic, DUEL can be used to test claims, logos and package images – with turnaround time as fast as 24 hours.
According to Dr. Paul Crowe, Senior Vice President, Ipsos Marketing, US, “Our new testing approach is very similar to a virtual duel – with items pitted against each other on-screen in a series of contests. Instead of using traditional scales, respondents see a series of images two at a time and quickly choose the one they prefer. Winning items go onto the next round until a final winner is chosen. We are not only able to understand consumers’ explicit System 2 preferences, but also their intuitive System 1 reactions by capturing the indirect measure of reaction time. By combining these two types of data, we have developed a truly revolutionary testing approach that adds a new dimension to our understanding.”
Lauren Demar, Global CEO of Ipsos Marketing Quant, adds, “We are very excited about the launch of DUEL. It is the first solution to leverage the measurement of respondents’ reaction time in a fast, affordable and globally scalable way. Many of our clients have already leveraged DUEL for their testing needs and have been delighted with the speed, ease and robustness of results.”
Ipsos’ latest testing approach is 100% mobile capable and device agnostic and part of their suite of fast innovation testing solutions. Options for a clickable phrase exercise to understand word impact and open-ends with text analytics can be added. Clients receive detailed diagnostics, including recommendations about which items to pursue, rework, or eliminate as well as which items have broad appeal vs. niche potential.

Johannesburg, July 5, 2018 – ILLEGAL cigarettes costing as little as R5 per pack are now available for sale in more than 100,000 shops all across South Africa, according to a major new study released today.
And more than one third of cigarettes in ‘non-organised’ shops – which account for almost 80% of all tobacco sales – are being sold for well below the government’s R17.85 minimum in tax payable.
The Ipsos Study is the most robust scientific analysis of the multi-billion-rand illegal cigarette market ever carried out in South Africa. It has been peer-reviewed and independently validated.
