Jaspravim – mediation portal
Name of the initiative: Jaspravim
Organisation form: For profit organisation
Starting year: 2011
Keywords: portal, microwork, mediation
The biggest online platform for microwork in Slovakia is Jaspravim.sk. Since its start in 2011, more than 137,474 registered members used its services and platform workers earned more than 2.4 million EUR via the platform (Jaspravim.sk 2019).
One can register on this platform as a platform worker (service provider) or as a recipient of service (customer). Registration is free but customers must pay an extra administrative fee (1.20 €) for every mediation of service.
This platform is oriented towards various types of services - from offers of handmade products (such as jewellery, bags, clothes) to graphics and design (web design, logos, banners), translations from/to various languages, copywriting/copyediting, programming and technology (WordPress, CMS, mobile apps), video & audio, life style advice, through to building services.
The problem is the difficulty in updating the profiles of the platform workers. Many of them no longer provide services but they are still listed in the database.
