As a consultant, how do I solve a case for a company?
First you must identify the case you are willing to solve. Cases are smartly recommended to consultants based on their industry knowledge, experience, and skills. Then you must study how this case should be solved, and how long the case solution will take. Then you must submit a proposal, individually or as a group with other consultants, stating the amount of time the solution will require, and your approach to take (quantitative analysis, qualitative work, etc) and submit it for the company. As a group, there can be only one proposal submitted by one of you. This will be saved on the company’s dashboard for their reference on what to expect from you. If the company wanted to followup with you on their proposal, they have the possibility of initiating a chat conversation with you on the professional tab, giving you directions, advices, what to expect, and/or a confirmation. Then you must make sure, individually or as a group, to analyze, study, forecast, and establish best scenarios for the case at hand and submit the solution within timely manner as stated in the proposal (E.g if you stated 20 days in the proposal to submit the solution, you must not exceed this time or the case will be closed for you, which you will then receive a default rating of 0).
As a consultant, how do I earn on the platform?
Consultants must first complete at least 10 cases in order to be involved in the payment distribution roll. Secondly, consultants must make sure to solve at least 3 cases per cycle thereafter in order to be involved continuously.
How are the payments distributed to us as consultants?
Companies will rate the solutions submitted by the consultants. These ratings accumulate during periodic cycles. At the end of every cycle, ratings are measured among consultants in order to distribute the compensation fairly and accurately. Higher rated consultants earn more than lower rated ones. It is recommended that consultants be proactive on the system with utmost efficiency and effectiveness for better results.
What factors are involved in the payment distribution?

Amount of cases solved.

Complexity of cases solved.

Overall individual rating.

Group rating.

Distribution of payments are based on the cases solved (E.g 3 cases solved this cycle, share distribution will be based upon these 3 cases only).

As a consultant, can I refer my friend to join as well as a consultant?
Sure. If they got what it takes, they are welcome to try out and apply.
As a consultant, will I be enrolled indefinitely on the system?
Depends on your level of pro-activity. As long as you maintain a good level of rating, you will be enrolled in the system. Once inactivity shows, or your quality of work decreases (proven by the average overall rating shown per cycle), measures will take place for revocation of your enrollment. Being constantly involved maintaining good quality activity is of prime importance.
As a consultant, if I get a rating that, from my perspective, not what I deserved for the work I provided, what can I do?
In this case, you can submit a followup request available on the solved case page to the system’s management specifying the details on the work you’ve done and why you think you deserve a better rating. As management, we will followup on your request and study your work given the case at hand and try to resolute this matter between you and the company should an adjustment to the rating be necessary.

As a company, can consultants send me social messages?
No. You only have the power to initiate one-to-one chat conversations with the consultants outside the scope of cases. They only have the ability to send you messages within the frame of the cases presented.
As a company, do I need to rate the consultants?
Yes. Companies must rate the consultants that have submitted their solutions before closing the case or proceeding to raising another case.
As a company, how can I make sure of the best quality consulting?
This system is not open to the public to join in our professional environment. It is only available to qualified individuals that we allow into the system. Consultants must apply and submit their documents for our HR department to review and choose whether they are eligible to enrolling, or not. It is our priority as well to maintain the quality promised to our clients. Consultants who do not maintain a certain level of rating and excellence for a certain period of time, their enrollment will be revoked from the system.
As a company, is my information safe?
Definitely. Our highest priority is to safeguard and protect company information presented on the platform as cases. Cases’ information cannot be viewed by other companies. Only the company itself and consultants can view the case information. Companies will also have a full dashboard to see who viewed their cases, in addition to checking incoming proposals and solutions to the case.
Can other companies see my information?
No. Companies are not able to view other companies’ information on the professional environment. There can only be social interactions on the social environment.

Absolutely. You have the privilege of posting cases anonymously. Consultants will not be able to identify who you are.
I do not want consultants to see each others’ solutions to my case. What can I do?
Don’t worry. When posting the case, you have the privilege of choosing whether you would like the solutions posted by the consultants to be public, or private to you. In public times, you can then engage them in discussions should they have different opinions or perspectives, giving you the most fruitful outcome.
If I posted a case but had an error or would like to do some changes, what can I do?
That is fine. You can simply close the current case and create a new one.
As a company, how many cases and issues am I able to present on the platform?
As many as you want. Companies enjoy unlimited amounts of issues to be raised for resolution to be uploaded at anytime, as long as their membership status is active.
