Never miss an inspiration

Collect spontaneous ideas, market observations, competition activities and inputs from exhibitions or industry events quickly on the go


  • How to scout trends, technologies or competition activities on the go?
  • How to support your scout team on exhibitions and industry events?
  • How to collect, categorize, and assess product inspirations and industry trends in a structured manner?
  • How to create a global inspiration database?
  • How to use the results of the scouting process within innovation management?


All of these tasks (and a lot more) are addressed by our unique mobile app ITONICS Inspirator!

An inspiration is the precursor to an idea. Inspirations immerse on the go and usually not at work. For this reason, spontaneous ideas, market observations, competition activities and inputs from exhibitions or industry events can be collected quickly with ITONICS Inspirator and saved for later refinement and analysis. An inspiration ideally stimulates for further reflection and if it’s shared, it ignites the creativity to develop an idea based on one or more inspirations. Inspirations are collected with ITONICS Inspirator as text, images, video or audio files on the smartphone and uploaded immediately or later in ITONICS Ideation. Objects collected with the smartphone can also be modified on the PC later on. The goal of ITONICS Inspirator is to link inspirations to the trend or ideation process.
