San Francisco, CA– Entrepreneur Magazine honored CloudCrowd today as one of the 100 most brilliant businesses in the U.S. on their annual “Brilliant 100″ list. ”These companies are the influencers and trailblazers who innovate and reinvent,” said Entrepreneur Editor-In-Chief, Amy Cosper, “They are companies that eviscerate Jurassic business models and sometimes democratize entire industries, much to the chagrin of said industries.”
CloudCrowd’s inclusion on the list is a testament to the power of the company’s Crowdsourcing 2.0 model. ”We’re thrilled to be included among a small group of companies that are creating massive disruption in their respective channels,” said CloudCrowd CEO, Alex Edelstein, “It’s an honor to be recognized.” Other honorees include 99designs, GroupOn, and CloudCrowd client, Rentcycle.
CloudCrowd, the world’s first Labor Operating System, is a workplace that allows work to be completed at a fraction of the cost of salaried workers anytime, anyplace, anywhere by tapping into a global Labor-as-a-Service workforce. A comprehensive Credibility system leverages automated review of each task, which generates effective, powerful feedback that enables the Platform to inexpensively weed out poor quality work with near infinite scalability. Intuitive workflow enables managers to break projects into discrete tasks and pay for their completion on an Cost-Per-Action basis, rather than the traditional approach: hiring expensive managers to oversee ranks of expensive salaried workers that have to be supported, provided with office space, and given costly benefits.
