When do you need a data categorization solution?

Data categorization solutions become a necessity any time large volumes of data need to be sorted properly. These large volumes of data could include leads and sales prospects, inventory and asset items or simply extensive inventories of content. A data system cannot operate properly if it is not properly sorted. At the same time, it can be quite resource intensive to attempt to categorize these items yourself.

What are the advantages of crowdsourced data categorization?

1. Scalability.

Regardless of the amount of data you need categorized, a crowdsourced solution can work for you. Through crowdsourcing, you have a fully elastic model of data categorization that can be applied to small or large sets of data. If your data sets change in volume, you are able to

2. Cost.

Paying someone to go through large volumes of data for you simply isn’t cost-effective. With a crowdsourced solution, you don’t have to pay the overhead of hiring an employee or the overhead associated with maintaining your employee. Crowdsourcing allows you to find the cheapest possible rates for your work without sacrificing the quality of the work.

3. Accuracy.

Crowdsourced data categorization solutions can be used not only to categorize your data but also to check and double check the work as desired. Through a crowdsourced solution, you can get many pairs of fresh eyes determining whether everything is categorized correctly — thereby minimizing error. Having only a single or a few workers categorizing items could allow mistakes to easily slip through. Our service offers guaranteed accuracy through our QualitySmart Workflows.

4. Speed.

When you crowdsource your data categorization, you gain instant access to thousands of workers. Rather than relying on a single worker to slowly go through your data, you can get your data properly categorized quickly. With larger sets of data in particular, this is incredibly important — it can take a prohibitive amount of time to work through data otherwise. Our workers are even faster due to our custom platform, which can be used to make category selection far easier and speedier.
