Employee Engagement

Tap into the collective intelligence of your employees to identify new business opportunities, improve internal efficiencies and to create a culture of innovation.

Customer Insights

Your customers have the insights! Launch large scale crowdsourcing campaigns to get closer to your customers and to gather new ideas, insights or just feedback.

Video or Image Sourcing

Launch your video, design or branding campaign asking users to submit their unique concept or proposal and the community to vote or like their preferred submissions.

A simple and intuitive interface to help you, and your team, manage your end to end crowdsourcing platform and community.

Save time and resources with our private admin application designed to streamline all the activities of your crowdsourcing program from a central location.

Complete reports and analytics on your key metrics

You have total control and ownership of the users who join your platform and we have built a set of tools specifically designed to help you manage your community of users throughout the entire program life-cycle.

Customize your crowdsourcing campaign

Having directly managed a number of open contests and crowdsourcing platforms we know that every initiative is different. Our system allows you to configure the crowdsourcing platform to match your exact requirements with a modular and easy to use set-up wizard.

Engage your crowd leveraging game mechanics to increase community participation and insight

Our system allows you to easily design and set-up your personalized gamification system: decide which user activities trigger points, set thresholds to unlock badges, enable public leaderboards!

A dedicated profile page for users to manage their profile and profile visibility.

A summary dashboard displaying each user’s key activity indicators: ideas submitted, votes submitted / received, overall points and standings, badges.

A stream of live feeds displaying a user’s activity.

Community users can submit their ideas using our highly modular and customisable submission form wizard.

Submissions can be saved as drafts and previewed prior to submitting.

Users to attach any supporting material to their idea: videos, images, documents or presentations. If you are looking to develop even further your co-creation environment, allow users to build their ideas on top of other ideas they liked.

Foster community activity and collaboration

Allow your members to comment on ideas, blogs, content and by doing so increasing their reputation.

Enable the voting scheme more suited for your crowdsourcing initiative and allow users to vote on ideas they like.

We use game mechanics to engage the community even further

Users earn points, badges and reputation by being active within the community. Our interactive leaderboards display top ideas and more active community members.

Secure access to a private application

where your team or other external reviewers can review and rate the ideas and submissions they like (these could be all the ideas, or maybe just a subset of the idea pool: e.g. the most voted by the community).

Simple and user friendly dashboard

A simple dashboard to easily see a snapshot of all submissions with an easy interface to search, filter and sort submissions by a number of criteria. We make it easy for your team to filter through thousands of submissions and pick the most popular ones.

Handy tagging system

To help reviewers organize and filter multiple submissions our platform allows to simply tag each submission with key words or to share comments with other team members.

Automated notifications

Allows team members and reviewers to set up automated notifications triggered when ideas that match their preferences and criteria are submitted.


SkipsoLabs helped us launch a complex global video crowdsourcing contest with heavy multi-media submissions in 8 different languages. Their ongoing technical support throughout the program was outstanding.
