Crowdsourcing allows companies to engage a wide group of people in a specific activity. It allows them to obtain more information, knowledge, or content than with the traditional model of delegating tasks to a small specialized team. Thanks to crowdsourcing, we offer a flexible, efficient, and scalable solution that helps fulfill the needs of many organizations by delivering measurable results.

    Dedicated, goal-oriented expert groups carry out specific tasks. They can rely on information collection, data processing, document analysis or digitization, or preparation of working papers. Depending on the customers’ needs, we select a defined group of users that have the competences necessary to achieve the specified objective. Expert networks allow companies to complement their existing teams with specialized project resources or to acquire new skills from the market.

    This results in highly-engaging, fresh content with viral potential for consumers. Companies get access to thousands of talented creative individuals and teams in Poland. Thanks to economies of scale and continuous cooperation, we have built a community of artists, filmmakers, designers, and authors, which we wouldn’t be able to reach using traditional production processes. During the process, we actively engage creators, moderate the submitted content, and give them guidance. We provide our clients with authentic and original content and consultation.

We use the creativity and knowledge of the local community, attracting residents’ ideas for solving local problems, and providing solutions on how to improve the functioning of certain areas within the city and its institutions. The spectrum of activities with civic engagement relies both on the online platform and a range of supporting activities offline. The solution is based on a modular structure, which allows it to be tailored to the needs of the client.

The internal platform allows employees and business partners to collaborate on the challenges faced by their business and to find solutions to real problems. We develop long-term employee engagement program, in which the employees are faced with tasks of varying difficulty. Employees are the closest environment of experts and company ambassadors.

By enabling employees to share ideas and opinions, our clients create a transparent environment in which employees collaborate to solve their company’s challenges.

Crowdsourcing plays a significant role in raising awareness and increasing involvement in CSR. The essence of CSR activities is to reach stakeholders and provide them with support in the areas that are important to them. In this sense, crowdsourcing is a tool to effectively reach stakeholders, gather their opinions and ideas, and involve them in final implementation. It allows community inclusion in deciding what kind of projects will be implemented and what institutions and beneficiaries will benefit from them. CSR projects carried out in this manner are extremely effective, because the authors and contributors of the ideas are also brand ambassadors. This opens up scope for further effective PR activities. We build specialized communities that share their knowledge, ideas, experiences, and historical testimonies.
