December 2010 Sponsor – Brightidea

by Braden Kelley

Brightidea - September Blogging Innovation SponsorThank you to Brightidea for sponsoring Blogging Innovation for December 2010.

Recently, Brightidea announced the latest release of its Social Innovation Management Suite. The Brightidea Innovation Suite is a one-of-a-kind ‘Facebook-style’ platform that allows Global 2000 businesses to monitor the social process of innovation from concept to cash. The integrated nature of the suite allows for a clear hand-off between stages in the innovation pipeline while maintaining an end-to-end system of record of all innovation-related activity.

The Innovation Suite release is the distillation of over 10 years of experience in the field, and over a year in development. The release incorporates several thousand enhancement requests made from our customers, partners and employees. The suite includes:

  • WebStorm The industry leading online brainstorm tool has been upgraded to include: one-click creation of innovation communities, advanced idea management including clustering and collections, and best-of-breed flexibility, configurability and extensibility for custom workflows and widget layouts.
  • Switchboard Creates a next step for every idea. No longer will good ideas sit idle; with Switchboard you can convert ideas into Proposals (an industry first), set up private social collaboration rooms to allow teams to develop concepts, and leverage powerful multi-round scorecarding functionality to make better business decisions faster.
  • Pipeline Pipeline is a social project tracking tool that allows innovation teams to: share progress on key milestones and stage-gates, track financial investments and results, and create social project pages with activity feeds that make it easy to keep managers and interested parties up-to-date on progress.

Experience the evolution of innovation today. TAKE A QUICK TOUR!

If you are implementing innovation management software to better manage your innovation process and deliver on your innovation strategy, I encourage you to add Brightidea to your consideration set. You really can’t manage innovation successfully with e-mail or paper submissions.
