Key Platform Features
An Open Calls & Challenges platform to help your team discover, evaluate and incubate innovative solutions at scale.
Engage participants through your branded challenge website
Maximize the number of applicants to your open call through an engaging challenge interface. Whether you are looking to integrate our Open Calls and Challenge product within your existing website, or to create a completely branded and standalone website, we customize the design and UX of the platform to meet your needs.
Customize your program workflow
Seamlessly tailor the workflow of your innovation initiative. Run a simple single-phase program with a single submission category, a complex multi-phase / multi-category program with different user types, or any type of program in-between.
Automate the end-to-end submission management process
A simple interface allows innovators and participants to join your open call and submit their entries using predefined, custom submission forms. Users can attach various supporting materials and assets to submissions, including videos, images, documents, drawings or presentations. All of this is fed into an easy to use interface for those managing the program to sort and action submissions.
Configure a dedicated judging evaluation process
The most challenging part of any contest or open innovation program is coordinating the judging process with senior experts, judges or investors. Utilize the platform’s highly intuitive judging to manage the evaluation process with ease. From simple voting and endorsement to multi-category, weighted evaluation scorecards.
Implement a reward system with gamification to engage users
Optimize user engagement levels and incentivize participation in your program by implementing gamification on your Open Calls and Challenges platform. Allow users to earn points for submitting, commenting, or voting on ideas, projects, or startups and reward those who engage most with the platform with badges and points.
We are very happy with the platform and the amount of applications received so far. Prior to opening the platform, we were worried whether the platform would be easy enough to use for people from the developing world who are using mostly mobile phones. Looking at the number of applications we are happy to confirm that the platform is very user-friendly.
