There are people all over the planet interested in doing tasks for companies on a part-time, as-needed basis. Amazon created a system - Mechanical Turk - to automate this. But it leaves a lot to be desired and is very specific to Amazon's needs. Enter CloudFactory, which moved its headquarters from Nepal to Durham in 2014. CloudFactory has created some custom workflows for text-to-digital, audio-to-digital and CRM cleanup. This gives companies a turnkey way to solve these types of problems without building their own solutions. A cool thing is its social mission - it contracts with thousands of underemployed âcloudworkersâ in cities in Africa.
