The ECA Experts Exchange Platform provides direct access to portfolios of experts. The EEEP allows identified and logged in administrators of a network of quality assurance agencies to search and find the most relevant experts for their quality assurance procedures.

This short guide helps you make the most of using the platform.

Simple search

Search for experts is often the hardest part. The EEEP has tried to make it effortlessly simple. The simple search box accepts all types of keywords and then searches through the complete portfolios with those keywords.

List of results

Using the keywords provided in the simple search box, the EEEP will present a list of matching results. This list can be sorted. By default, the list is sorted with the most recently updated portfolio on top. You can choose to sort the list by name, city and country. Hovering over the list gives direct access to the types of expertise/experience. Clicking on the name of the expert takes you to that expert's portfolio.

Bookmark an expert

While clicking a name takes you to a portfolio, clicking a highlighted result opens a little box with more options. This box first allows you to add an experts to your bookmarks. Bookmarking can be used to keep track of experts or to manage your search for a specific procedure. You can access all your bookmarks by clicking your name on top of the screen.

Send a message to an expert

The options box, which appears when clicking a highlighted result, also allows you to send a message to an expert. Because when you have found the expert you were looking for, you need to get in touch. We have made this easy too. With a simple click on 'Message' you can directly send an e-mail to the expert and let them know that you want to invite them to take part in a quality assurance procedure.

Advanced search

If you know more or less exactly the profile of the expert(s) you are looking for, you can use EEEP's more advanced filtering elements. This includes boxes about additional languages, relevant expertise and experience, the professional fields, and the fields of study.
