evly is a paltform where organizations and individuals are offered flexible, powerful freemium self-service crowdsourcing tools and sites where they can invite their existing communities and databases to set out challenges for them to participate in.
One of our key differentiators is that the users also become part of a much larger social network called evly where an expert system works in tandem with a recommendation engine to suggest the right challenges for them to get involved in and thus cross-pollinate the users across all the new challenges and networks.
