Problem-solving at scale: Instead of closing off issues that affect multiple stakeholders, creating an idea campaign to solicit ideas from teams across different functions allows for unique methods of problem-solving that are budget friendly.

Why Ideation?

Ideas by everyone for everyone: Ideas allow you to think creatively about problems close to you and your daily work. Through ideation, criticism turns constructive and allows for collaboration to promote positive problem solving.

All voices heard: Coming up with an idea is a ubiquitous action that everyone has taken part in during their lives. Ideation allows you to engage informally with communities of all types and sizes.

Gamification for the win: Through digital tools, ideation can involve likes, shares, public comments, and linked rewards to increase awareness and engagement. Successful ideas showcased provides fuel for future ideas, leading to good content and self-moderation.

Ideation for Employee Engagement

Engage employees through campaigns on key topics across your organization. Campaigns can be department specific such as a municipal issue of the moment or tied in with the goals of the executive team of the organization.

  • Set an idea through a specific status and let the idea submitter know

  • Automatically analyze ideas submitted through the application and review the idea count, statuses issued, count of likes, comments, shares, and all content of the idea

Ideation for Public Engagement

  • Set statuses of ideas to let the public know their voices have been heard. Use specific statuses and let the idea submitter know their ideas are being validated
