Drive Faster

Utilize university student and expert teams to rapidly accelerate proof-of-concept, research, prototyping and execution for upcoming projects

Why Trumio?

Early experimentation, proof of concepts, or basic research often account for 30-40% of the timeline for priority projects, exacerbated by lack of bandwidth or budget.
Jump start early exploration and shrink timelines by 2x and costs as much 5x – 10x by utilizing vetted university student teams with the full repertoire of skills.
Scale up with experts to further reduce time investment from your internal team and create opportunities to grow projects to full production.

Trumio facilitates multiple levels of vetting starting with resume matching, online proctored testing on specific skill areas, video questions, and ratings from clients on past projects. Of course, as a client you have the option to interview and assess teams and talent before you award them a project.

Yes. Once you receive bids from student and expert teams you can connect with them on the platform to ask additional questions or set up a live discussion. You can also provide feedback to make changes to the bid as needed. 

Clients have several options on Trumio to meet desired quality goals. They can provide feedback to teams to redo and resubmit submissions. If this does not suffice, they can cancel future milestones and terminate the project. Lastly, if they are dissatisfied with the quality or speed of progress on current milestones, they can raise a dispute and invite arbitration. Overall, clients only pay talent on milestone acceptance so they are always protected. 

Intellectual property rights are covered under the contract that every talent, expert, or team member signs as part of project acceptance. In general all IP and work artifacts in a project are owned by the client. On rare occasions, in instances of University-Client collaboration such rights may be shared and captured in the custom contract language that they both agree on and sign.

Minimum project sizes allowed are for the duration of one week. No maximum project length has been set on Trumio.

Trumio has implemented industry standard data security and privacy safeguards including encryption and compliance during rest and motion. More details are available in Trumio’s Privacy Policy.
