SquadRun offers users a gamified experience to complete simple tasks on their phones in exchange for money. At the same time businesses can gain access to SquadRun’s high quality workforce at a fraction of the cost of outsourcing it to a BPO or maintaining an in-house team.
The firm’s principle is that everyone has some amount of spare or “down” time spent travelling or waiting, so why not engage in value creation? Users aren’t required to have specific educational backgrounds, but instead skills like comprehension, pattern recognition, data handling, grammar, etc.” in order to complete tasks.
SquadRun claims that a diverse workforce, strong algorithms and workflows allows it to be cheaper, faster, more flexible and deliver better quality work than a traditional BPO. In six months the platform has managed to grow its user based to 7,000 people, while more than 35 businesses now use its services.
