Alpha Capture?

Does anyone have experience providing trade idea recommendations to quant funds through an alpha capture system? Background: Some quant funds have built alpha capture systems, similar to TIM Group to capture trade ideas. Any ideas on how to get into these systems and what the largest systems are? (I know WallaceMace's TOPS is the oldest/largest.) Any other systems out there that I can join?
