hiogi is a community that answers mobile adhoc questions that are submitted via Twitter SMS, WAP, iPhone or wireless email.
Anybody can participate in exchanging know-how, experiences, advice, research results or plain information. hiogi brings questioners, who travel a lot and who do not have a lot of time together with the answerers, who sit in front of their computers and who are willing to help.
The hiogis battle each other 8 minutes for the best answer and every question has a ranking of 2-5 coins, depending on the difficulty of the question. A third independt hiogi checks and confirms the best answer and gets one coin for that. Every coin is one chance of winning several cool prices by the end of the month.
hiogi runs mainly in Germany under www.hiogi.de and offers whitelabel community solutions to companies with a world-wide leading SaaS model under. This customer involvement platform generates massive SEO-power and includes all mobile inbound channels, so that customers can help each other even, if they are traveling.
