Pros

It's an incredible programming for examination. I love the perception highlights since it transform drilling information into fun outlines or diagrams.
The ability to filter to the specific metric we are interested in is an amazing feature.
It is a good data analytics and visualization software and its ability to import data from multiples sources is a great feature.

Pros

Great training sessions, flexible to our needs and great customer support. Only great things to say about this company.
We are finding great innovative ideas and solutions with our implementation of BrightIdea.
Their onboarding team was great in explaining how everything worked. Plus the ability to save the webexes for future use helped a lot.

Cons

Could be frustrating to use when first starting as it would give you an error message but provide no specifics on what is wrong or directions to fix it.
I find it a bit frustrating when presented with a visualisation that doesn't represent the particular angle on the data I am looking for.
Had to take some training courses and even at that it was still confusing.

Cons

Lack of mobile app development, slow development of product enhancements, lack of local (i.e. outside of USA) hosting options to reduce latency.
One issue we ran into was the inability to backdate projects.
The inability for Boolean logic in the rules engine is somewhat annoying but manageable.

Can't say enough about our Account Team at Brightidea - outstanding assistance, patient, and helpful

Reviewed 5 years ago
Pros

It's completely different than anything we're doing in our organization. Crowdsourcing has been difficult, and it gives us the flexibility to reach out to employees with a digital platform who wouldn't otherwise have a voice to ideate.

Cons

Would like some additional flexibility in customization without needing to engage BI developers as needed.

Vendor response

Thanks for the review, Leslie! We love that you're giving a voice to employees whose ideas wouldn't have otherwise been heard. Once you've achieved the custom style that you're looking for, you can leverage the "Duplicate" utility on the Apps Pillar page to carry that style over when creating new initiatives. You can also select "Copy Design from an Existing Initiative" from any App Setup Wizard.

Unique but cumbersome

Reviewed 3 years ago

I like how you can customize the entire thing. It's a proper web application. You can make it as advanced, simple, or personally branded as you need. I also greatly enjoyed and appreciate the BI support. I generally think it is too cumbersome, and it took me a while to learn how to use, at least the backend. Maybe that is the nature of backends. At first Brightidea felt like I was in a pilot's cockpit, with too many knobs and buttons to keep track of. The features also make the backend slow and not snappy like a fun/good piece of software.

I use BI daily to schedule appointments and to track project activity.

Reviewed 4 years ago

See survey!

Pros

Keeps me on point with where projects are in the pipeline. Helps me to make decisions on what projects will move forward and which projects will be exited. Gives me the opportunity to make email contact with constituents from BI.

Cons

I can't determine who used the system last and may have moved things around. Needs a tracking mechanism.

The best software

Reviewed 4 years ago

Our overall experience with Bright Idea has been excellent. We have been able to name programs through associate engagement. We have also been able to manage our large pipeline of pilots that we are testing all over our portfolio.

Pros

I love how easy it is to use and administer. This tool is highly customizable, which allows us to cater to our brand and make the tool work for us. It provides us with an organized platform to crowd source answers to some of our challenges by engaging our associates! We have been using BI for two years and the number of enhancements and improvements they continue to make is impressive.

Cons

The system has so many applications and I struggle to figure out a way to use them all! I wish that there were some better real world examples of each.
