A Matching Algorithm to Use in A Universal C2C-Marketplace for IT-Services

This paper shows the opportunity to optimize the skill matching procedures on IT-platforms for short-dated proxies in need of the ever-rising demands for IT-support both in business and private settings. The basis for this optimization is an algorithm for matching parameters which help to bring users and offerors with required skills together. This matching algorithm is realized on the C2C-marketplace flexhIT, which creates a network between customers and offerors, using networking and the matching algorithm to reduce skill shortages in IT-support and connect customers looking for IT-support with highly skilled offerors of IT-support.
