Crowdicity overview

What is Crowdicity?

Crowdicity is an idea management solution that integrates within existing organizational practice, leveraging familiar social tools for engaging people. Businesses can seamlessly gather the ideas, thoughts and feedback of anyone at any level, at any time with a view to improving services. Set certain questions to provoke a barrage of solutions or advice on key decisions, using Crowdicity’s unique challenge management feature. Sift, sort and evaluate responses in real time, while providing collaborative capabilities for a truly crowd sourced approach to connecting everybody. Run multiple challenges assigned to different business owners, set inducement competitions to capture top concepts and raise timed challenges targeting custom user groups.

The innovation stage manager serves challenges through a number of “stages” and “gates”, customizable and easily aligned to existing processes, to assist with capture, shortlisting and evaluation. Simple public or private voting rules including thumbs up/down and star ratings can be applied to grade feedback and push the best ideas to the top. Crowdicity also adds various anti-spamming and monitoring measures to maintain integrity, while certain filters and status flags ensure idea favorites are effectively shared back into the community.

Crowdicity helps a global holding company connect

Used weekly for 1-2 years

At C Space, we used the platform to build a collaboration platform for Omnicom called SHAPE. It's a place where people who work in agencies all over the holding company can collaborate and contribute ideas to client challenges. Working with Crowdicity has been a pleasure and we chose it both because of its functional ability, and because of the team behind it. They're collaborative, open to feedback and implement changes quickly, and give our team support whenever we require it.

Pros
The team: The people we've worked with, from leadership to support staff have all been massively helpful and responsive to our needs - it's our number on criteria when choosing a partner. The ability to brand, design, and customize: One of the reasons we picked the site is because we could make it feel totally our own. Our designers could brand it, we could strip the functionality right back and make it super simple for users to interact with. Feeding into the development of features: Crowdicity is always seeking feedback on their features and how the platform can improve and meet our needs in the future.

Cons
Nothing to report!

IDea management platform, flesxible enough to be used for so much more....

Review Source: Capterra

We have been using Crowdicity for about a year now on a wide range of projects. Born as an internal idea management platform, we tend to use it far more creatively than this because its ease of use and UI makes it an ideal platform for a wide range of crowd intelligence activities. The customer service and personable back office support is excellent, so unlike a faceless uneducated customer service of so many of its competitors. It takes about a day to grasp how to use the system on a surface level but there is so much depth to it that you will continually be thinking of smarter ways to engage your community with it. On the down sides, it is only available in English and German currently, though I am being told this is changing. And users cannot embed video into it directly, a feature we would dearly like to have. Also, since it is an idea management platform it doesnt have the quantitative tools (polls, surveys etc) that some of its competitors have... but we find that you can work around that and set up challenges in such a way that the participants will essentially be doing the same thing. Overall, as a crowdsourcing agency, we regularly audit the market for idea management and online market research community tools. I've counted over 200 in existence. I would put Crowdicity in the top 5.

Excellent crowdsourcing package with style and the human touch

Used daily for 6-12 months

I have used Crowdicity for two Horizons - NHS England projects and have seen the platform built for Dorset Healthcare. The platform was intuitive and easy to use. There was impressive support from the Crowdicity team especially Amy who responded to our needs and suggested alternative ways we could engage our international participants. Both projects were a major success and fun to do.

Pros
Everything. I am sure there is much more that would be discovered if I was working with the platform and team for a longer period.

Cons
Did not find any problems with the software. If I was unsure of anything a quick call with the team resolved the issue and provided a range of options to build extra engagement with the platform.

Running a challenge on Crowdicity was a great way to connect with and leverage ideas from a crowd.

Used daily for less than 6 months

Review Source: Capterra

Pros
The elegant design, ease in building the platform, and the overall interface of the user experience was easy to navigate and accessible for new users. The Crowdicity team that helped me with setting up the challenge and the platform were really helpful, attentive, and patient, and provide the necessary insight that I needed, when I needed it. The platform provides every opportunity to bring in new ideas from a diverse crowd.

Cons
Having to do my own advertising for the crowdsourcing challenge, and making sure that I was driving a lot of traffic to the platform, was an obstacle I had to overcome. This was one of the tradeoffs of using a platform that does not have a group of 'solvers', or users, who actively work on challenges that interest them. Having a really good marketing and advertising strategy is important for a successful crowdsourcing challenge.
