Crowdsourcing

How can Magpi's data and messaging tools help you?

If you’ve ever watched American Idol, you’ve seen audience members voting for the best contestant.  This is an example of “crowdsourcing”:  asking for feedback or ideas or votes from a large group of people. Other examples of crowdsourcing:

  • ask customers at a facility to provide feedback on service
  • tell workers to report safety issues
  • allow citizens to report problems in a government office
  • texting in reports of potholes or other issues for government to address

Magpi lets you create simple or complex crowdsourcing polls with SMS that anyone can respond to by texting in a keyword – and you can go from concept to deployment in just minutes.
