The company are all engineers at Zapoint and the company saw the solution to this problem in changing a person's resume into numbers, because numbers users can compare and once users can compare - Bingo! You have a currency!nnZapoint has defined an algorithm that analyzes a person's skills and achievement and presents the results in an objective and comparable format. That's where the fun begins.
