Testimonials

It was just like managing one employee who just so happened to manage thousands of invisible employees for me.
— Katie F. / Operating Programs Manager, e-commerce fraud protection
I really value the relationship I have with [founders] Isaac and Matt. I trust those guys. I’m a fan of the model. The thing that drew me in was the reputation management system and the quality management system, which was different to a more plurality-based model.
— Rob L. / Project and Product Manager, legal services
We were very impressed by the quality of the results you guys gave us, and your customer service was outstanding. The last time we ran a project like this it took one month; you guys did it in one week and blew us away with the results and cost.
— Luis F. Borrero / Founder, DR-i-VE
With zCrowd we can do data processing on weekends and evenings.
— Nathan McFarland / Entrepreneur


 

About zCrowd

We are a software development firm in Seattle that has done a lot of crowdsourcing work. Because of that we had to solve many problems related to getting quality results from workers that we might only know for a few minutes. What we found was that crowdsourcing is very good for distributing the load.  For example if you have 1000 documents to read and enter in the database, why not summon 100 people and each of them do 10 document.

 

The problem you immediately hit is that you don’t know if each of these people actually did the work. Some of them simply type in garbage and now you are stuck looking through everything that was done which doesn’t save you much time.


We faced this problem and created what we call the Progressive Quality Review or PQR process which uses a predictive model to figure out when a worker is about to make a mistake and then have other workers jump in to check it over. The result is the super efficient and scalable system zCrowd.
