AboutFace Quality Control / Editor Supplier Qualification


AboutFace™, with its corporate headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia, entered the mystery shopping arena in 1994, as The Secret Shopper Company.  From the onset, our founder and CEO, Paige Hall-Hartsfield, envisioned a company that used secret shopping to impact business in a profound and measurable way.

Whether clients want to merely study their operating and behavioral drivers or take steps to improve them, our team of professionals is equipped to create just the tools they need. The company is now in a unique position to deliver on its promise of performance improvement with comprehensive programs and services which include:

  • Secret shopping (onsite, telephone, web fulfillment)
  • Competitive pricing and pricing analysis
  • Consulting (management, frontline, teams, sales process)
  • Customer experience strategy for the top and implementation to the frontline
  • Training
  • Performance incentives
