The Estudio Babino-Volkis was founded by Javier Babino and Juan Volkis in 1986, with the development of SIPE (Survey Processing System), later updated to a Windows version called SIPEwin. SIPEweb (Online Survey System), which works over own web platform, began its development in year 2000. It is used for self-administered surveys (with e-mail sending or panel recruiting), for CATIweb (telephone data collection assisted by a web questionnaire) or CAPIweb (personal interviews assisted by a web questionnaire). Estudio Babino-Volkis was reorganized and Juan Volkis continued as independent profesional, while Javier Babino founded Estudio Babino-Grinspon, where the ongoing development of SIPEwin continues. In that time also, José Luis Schargorosdky, Gustavo Milman and Damian Rostein founded SMR, after more than 15 years of experience related to Estudio Babino-Volkis.
In 2022, Damián Rostein decides to leave the company for personal and professional reasons. Therefore SMR turns to be a renewed company formed exclusively by José Luis Schargorosdky and Gustavo Milman.
