NIPO's previous logo

NIPO was founded in September 1945 as the Dutch Institute for Public Opinion by Wim de Jonge and Jan Stapel. In the 1970s, some people working for NIPO, that was considered then the leading market research company in the Netherlands, started developing software for data collection and analysis. In 1999 NIPO was purchased by Taylor Nelson Sofres.[3]

In 2011 the company started developing new platform called Nfield Web & Mobile which will gradually replace the current NIPO Fieldwork System.[4] In early 2012 NIPO Software integrated the NIPO Fieldwork System with the official Facebook and Twitter API’s. Through this integration it became possible to invite fans on those Social network fans pages to participate in research projects.[5]
