Recommendations to others considering Crowdicity
It's a great way to tangibly connect an organisation and demonstrate a collaborative culture rather than just pay lip service to it. It works best when it's managed closely, when people are encouraged to participate, and are told about the impact of their work.
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.
, Found it to be one of the best Idea Lifecycle Management Suites, flexible, scalable and complete in all respects!
The project successfully uses 'blended' creativity, using both on and off-line activities. It is a partnership between Barry Town Council, the Vale of Glamorgan Council, Pride in Barry and the Royal Society for Arts, Manufactures and Commerce (RSA).
The setup and management of the platform is really simple, and it's very scalable indeed, from 10 to 10,000 users.
Being able to manage activity via tailored functions and groups has been key to this.
New features appear all the time keeping the product fresh and in line with trends in the space of Idea Management Platforms. 10/10 an example of how all SaaS products should work!
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.
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.

The features of the platform made it easy for participants to engage with one another, build on ideas, and provide comments and feedback.
We have used Crowdicity to great effect to generate innovative ideas. Our first "Innovation Week" has been a great success in large part due to the ease of use and Crowdicity's engaging front end. People enjoy the opportunity to share ideas on the platform and the social media style interaction it provides.
We've been particularly impressed with Crowdicity both in terms of its functionality and the customer service we get from the team.
The pros: - a vibrant and social interface that makes you want to get stuck in - fully customisable so you feel like it's your own platform, not something 'off the shelf' (something that is vital if you're to engage your crowd) - this software is bursting with functionality and I think I've only ever scraped the surface of what it can help me achieve - (ref: previous bullet point) it might be packed with features and capability, but it's so easy and intuitive to use (not often you get that balance right!)
Marie has been excellent at answering questions and keeping in touch as well, always on hand to chat to us about the best way to do things!
The platform is very easy to use and we are satisfied with the functionality. We are really pleased with our staff engagement and successes during the last 5 months and are looking forward to seeing what we can achieve in the coming months and beyond!
We use Crowdicity technology all the time to underpin various innovation communities for numerous clients. It's easy and intuitive to use, looks and works nicely, and the team are always very friendly and responsive.
The platform was intuitive and easy to use.
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.
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.
