What is Houdini?

Houdini is a disrtibuted workforce platform that allows business to rapidly outsource large volumes of repetitive work to crowds of workers over the web. Houdini is backed by Amazon’s Mechanical Turk to provide instant access to a large, scalable pool of distributed workers. Houdini’s value-added tools make distributed labor easier to manage and more reliable for critical business applications.

  • Visual Form Designer makes setup a breeze.
  • REST API saves weeks or months of custom integration
  • Workflow tools allow you to quickly automate more complex tasks
  • Pre-vetted workforce lets you tap into crowds of workers who have been vetted for specific skills, like writing, research, data entry and data analysis

Houdini pricing

With Houdini you will pay two types of fees: Labor fees are the compensation that you pay to workers to complete your task (plus a 10% markup that is paid to Amazon for access to Mechanical Turk). Because Mechanical Turk is a marketplace for work, you are free to propose your own compensation for each task and workers can decide whether they are willing to accept your work for that amount. These Labor Fees are exactly the same whether you use Houdini or access Mechanical Turk directly.

In addition to the Labor Fees, Houdini charges a Plan Fee for access to the Houdini framework. Like a cell phone plan, the Plan Fee is a single monthly fee that provides you with access to certain number of hours of usage every month. Each plan provides a certain number of “Labor Hours” computed as the total number of that workers spend to complete your tasks.
