Crowdsourcing is a term assimilating to ´the development with the participation of numerous users´ and represented as a sort of externalisation (“outsourcing”)
For his part, Jeff Howe (redactor at Wired Magazine and first person that used this word) defines this term as “the act of taking a task traditionally performed by an employee or contractor, and outsourcing it to an undefined, generally large group of people or community in the form of an open call”. FRIZBIZ identifies itself perfectly with this model, which could be the creator of value for its users, and this in different ways:
The gain of time and reduction of costs.
A free access to an online base of providers and offers allows a strong reactivity and an interesting competition making. These platforms play the role of contributors of business for the clients and contributors of opportunities for the providers. This making of new competition makes it possible to get fair prices, and with that to keep control and reduce costs.
– The delegation of tasks.
The platforms are generally used for performed services that are considered as non-essential, non-strategic, or requiring a specific expertise. The Crowdsourcing allows to delegate certain tasks, in order to focus on its core business or on other priorities.
– A community gravitating around the sharing economy.
Communication, support and sharing within the community contribute to the success of Crowdsourcing. The principle is to create, federate and animate its community in order to share and to benefit at best from the skills, expertise and from the availability from each of its members.
– The access to resources.
Prospection is not necessary anymore, expertise will come to you. With the free access to auctions, the client will only have to select the appropriate expertise. The access to resources is free and unlimited. Thus, creative intelligence of your community will respond to your needs.
FRIZBIZ identifies itself perfectly to the concept of Crowdsourcing because we are promoting “the use of creativity, intelligence and expertise of numerous persons, in sub-contract, to realise certain tasks traditionally performed by an employee or an entrepreneur.
