Crowdsourcing is the act of taking tasks 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.. Users (also known as the crowd) typically form into online communities, and the crowd submits solutions. The crowd also sorts through the solutions, finding the best ones. These best solutions are then owned by the entity that broadcast the problem in the first place--the crowdsourcer--and the winning individuals in the crowd are sometimes rewarded. In some cases, this labor is well compensated, either monetarily, with prizes, or with recognition. In other cases, the only rewards may be kudos or intellectual satisfaction. Crowdsourcing may produce solutions from amateurs or volunteers working in their spare time, or from experts or small businesses which were unknown to the initiating organization. You can use IdeaScale to create your own crowdsourcing community quickly and easily. Its a simple turn-key solution that allows for the submission of simple or complex solutions and the vetting and sorting of ideas so that the best ideas bubble up to the top.
IdeaScale provides a powerful platform for inspiring and facilitating innovation. IdeaScale rocks.-Ethan Galstad
Community members can honor the contributions of others with team-based idea submission. When an idea author composes or edits an idea based on the suggestions of others, they can cite and link to the other participating members, building a team around an idea and increasing engagement even further.
Want to create a private community? You can configure IdeaScale to only allow registration if the user signs up with the email address domain for your organization (eg, xyzcompany.com).
All IdeaScale communities support full SSL encryption. Our email servers are configured with TLS to support encryption between mail servers. This minimizes any chances of packet inspection between servers.
