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
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.

Great Way to Crowd-Source Ideas from your Employees

Reviewed 4 years ago

Overall, Brightideas is a very excellent and worthwhile expense that your business can incur. We were able to save tens of millions of dollars in cost avoidance due to the creative and impactful ideas that were submitted by employees all around the company.

Pros

Brightideas offered an incredibly rich and robust platform that allowed our Innovation Team to create a method for our employees to share their ideas to management. There was also a way to incentive ideas with the build in "reward and recognition" system that was really well liked by our employees.

Cons

The learning curve for mastering this product is quite high, and back end users will need to go through some extensive training with the Brightidea representatives.

Brightidea Site Feedback

Reviewed 5 years ago

Overall, a good experience using the platform. We are continuously increasing usage and participation. Currently using the platform for idea submissions & collaboration on specific business challenge questions and pitch events. Most recently, we are finding more valuable use cases as a service platform to enable new ways of working & employee engagement through building departmental communities mostly focused around learning + development initiatives (i.e. Job Swap application process, Scholarship application process, joining Diversity and Inclusion initiatives).

Pros

-Ability to set up initiative/challenge pages easily and quickly -Ability to build out pipelines to evaluate and track ideas's progress, and easily route to the appropriate evaluator(s) -Good customer support with quick response and resolution turnaround time

Cons

-Needs improvement for more accurate language translation(s) feature -Clearer differentiation between the various apps. It would be great if there were different templates/lay outs that fit the main purpose of each application. For example, the 'Discuss' app looking more like a discussion board rather than the rest of the applications where each submission is an individual idea board.

Crowdsourcing Tool

Reviewed 6 years ago

This is a good crowdsourcing tool. It's easier for us now to get ideas or solutions to any challenge Lear is facing.

Pros

The tool is user friendly and we can easily keep tract changes or status of our idea.

Cons

There's not enough queries to use enabling to slice and dice the data. Charts are limited and set of data still need to be taken out to create reports or charts manually.

Jumpstart your innovation program

Reviewed 5 years ago

Excellent team to work with, clearly experienced and supporting clients in the field getting things done!

Pros

- Will support you on your innovation program journey as it matures, covering nearly all possible activities in your program with templates and guidance for each! - Mobile app! - can be tailored to match what we want to achieve - overall analytics and pipeline management from idea to delivery

Cons

Its visual identity option (themes and css) are effective but a bit too much work to my liking! It does require you to consider properly the user journey on its homepage in particular.

Quick and cheap platform to get an organization started on tracking initiatives

Reviewed 5 years ago

We're using the platform to create a culture of Innovation

Pros

Easy to get started and doesn't take much tutorials to implement. Interface is easy enough to learn.

Cons

Lacking a lot of features and functionalities to make an admin's life easier. Works best if someone on admin side has knowledge of CSS and HTML
