Key Platform Features
A complete solution to help you and your team bring the best ideas to life with a simple and intuitive idea management software.
Easily configure the innovation and ideation workflow
As ideas flow in, manage a pipeline of live opportunities by building your custom innovation workflow and configure the end-to-end ideation program according to your requirements. Create custom profile pages for ideas and users and easily move ideas and projects from one stage to the next, collaborating with your stakeholders through every stage.
Enable multiple types of idea generation
The Idea & Portfolio Management platform enables you to create different ideation programs for different audiences on the same platform: engage your internal teams and business units, allow users to upload ideas on an ongoing basis, or crowdsource ideas from all your external networks and communities (suppliers, partners, customers, the public at large).
Engage stakeholders to contribute
Giving ideas, startups or projects the best chance to advance through to the next stage of the idea or innovation funnel requires a collaborative effort and efficient rating. Seamlessly allocate users to ideas and invite groups of users to evaluate and collaborate on ideas according to predefined scorecards. Allow stakeholders to leave comments and collaborate using our MSTeams integration, to facilitate continuous feedback and development on projects.
Create your repository of innovation and save time maintaining it
As ideas and projects are added to the system, allow your team to have access to a repository of innovative ideas, projects or startups. Save time spent entering idea, startup or project data by asking owners to fill in or update their profiles themselves. Create transparency around innovation and invite users to easily browse, filter and search for ideas or projects saved on your platform.
Track program performance with Key Performance Indicators
Utilize reports and data export functionalities to efficiently track program performance and ideate at scale. Allocate and monitor key performance indicators or allocated budgets (e.g. mentoring hours, project budget etc.) for any innovation or project. This enables your team to stay continually informed about how your program is progressing across your entire innovation portfolio.
