Got more questions? We’ve got answers.
How do I gather innovative ideas from colleagues?
ITONICS Campaigns has unrivaled flexibility in configuring how you gather ideas. Decide whether to create top-down or bottom-up ideation challenges, set the timeframe, and select the fields of information you want participants to submit. You can embed a form externally to receive submissions as part of open innovation. Invite users within your organization to participate, or granularly select the stakeholders and experts you want to involve.
Our gamification system incentivizes participants to submit and evaluate ideas. Participants start on the custom Campaign page and submit their idea according to the required details, images, and descriptions specified by the campaign manager. Before saving and submitting, they also have the opportunity to relate their idea to trends and technologies already on the platform, thereby providing the evaluators with additional context.
Can I invite external experts to contribute to ideation?
Yes, bring internal and external expertise together on one innovation management software. You increase the value of the outcome when you engage individuals with diverse backgrounds and experiences to share and combine their knowledge to solve your challenges. There is the option to embed a form externally to receive submissions as part of open innovation. Collaborate with inventors or startups by providing them the opportunity to submit proposals online, fast and easy.
How does the ITONICS idea management software increase engagement?
The idea management software from ITONICS provides gamification functionality to immerse participants in innovation activities and incentivize them. Users get activity points and achievement badges by performing actions on the ITONICS Innovation OS, including submitting ideas, or raating, commenting, and discussing ideas of others in Campaigns.
Activity feeds inform users about updates and motivate them to frequently revisit the innovation campaign they are engaged in. Customizable newsletters and integrations into corporate collaboration platforms nudge intrapreneurs to become active contributors to ongoing innovation activities.
