Why Freelancing Works for CrowdSurf?

online_anywhere_anytimePartnering with Freelance workers enables CrowdSurf to access a diverse and talented human workforce that is not limited by geographical or temporal boundaries.

While computing technology continues to improve, there are still many things that human beings can do much more effectively than computers, such as identifying objects in a photo or video, transcribing audio recordings or researching data details.

When considering the best way to build an organization that could cost effectively allow us to transcribe media for the hearing impaired and second language viewers, working with freelance transcribers was the obvious solution. These are simple tasks that will always require human intelligence.

Using a distributed freelance workforce makes accessing human intelligence simple, scalable, and cost-effective.  When we need media transcribed for our partners, our workers can easily sign-in and access thousands of entertaining HITs (Human Intelligence Tasks) from a variety of media clients.

CrowdSurf then returns the transcribed media back to our partners at a lower cost than was previously possible before there was a crowd workforce.   This allows us to accomplish our mutual goals to make digital media enjoyable and accessible to viewers than ever before.
