A great platform with all of the basic functionality that a new ideation strategy needs.

Reviewed 5 years ago

Excellent engagement with employees, participation by team members and superb quality of discussions and ideas created as a result of implementation.

Pros

Great customer support and communication from the IdeaDrop team. Software is simple and easy to use.

Cons

Some of the filtering tools are a bit clumsy, but the team there is working diligently to upgrade them and I forsee some great changes in that department in the near future (bumping up my easy of use and functionality ratings in doing so!)

Idea Drop has transformed the way we collect and action ideas across our business

Reviewed 6 years ago

We quickly saw the benefits of Idea Drop as teams throughout the business began collaborating, communicating and sharing ideas in ways we hadn't seen before with our existing tech stack. Idea Drop's fresh interface and intuitive social features made it quick to onboard our teams and we now rely on it to capture, enrich and action new ideas across the business on an ongoing basis.

Pros

Fast to onboard team members; very low training costs; highly intuitive design and user experience. The mobile apps are a big plus for us too as a number of our team members are rarely at their desk. Particularly like the status tool, which enables us to align our workflow with ideas and keep everyone in tune with what we're doing with the ideas they share. Cloaking is popular too enabling staff to hide their identities when sharing ideas.

Cons

Would love to see wider integrations with other elements of our tech stack such as Slack and Office 365.

Microgaming

Reviewed 4 years ago

Positive experience and the staff are really helpful even after post launch. Turnaround on issues is resolved in good time

Pros

Easy to use and fit for purpose. Optimized for mobile. The score system is great

Cons

There are a few restrictions on reports, manually having to request monthly innovation score reports. Branding is restricted. Doesn't allow you to upload videos. You don't get notified every time a new idea comes through unless you follow that person, difficult with on a huge scale.

Vendor response

Dear Roxanne, Thank you so much for taking the time to submit a review. We are very glad to hear you enjoy using Idea Drop and that you find it well optimised for purpose which is to effectively drive innovation in Microgaming. Just wanted to clarify that even though we don't support native videos yet, it is possible to add Youtube and Vimeo videos to enrich your ideas and challenges. Thank you once again for your feedback. We are constantly improving our platform as well as adding new features. An improved reporting possibilities and notification system is already in our roadmap and will be available for you to use very soon. Best wishes, Idea Drop team

Idea Drop- great system for innovation, collaboration and fun!

Reviewed 4 years ago

Fantastic experience. Idea Drop is vested in our success!

Pros

Idea Drop is very intuitive and easy to use. The features and functionality are robust and allow one to post ideas, challenges, share results and access the best ideas via dashboards and reports. There is a lot of collaboration and application for Idea Drop in our healthcare organization. The Idea Drop team is phenomenal and has helped us every step of the way. Idea Drop provides great planning and training tools/resources and is customizable.

Cons

We love Idea Drop and the Idea Drop team. We would like if Idea Drop had more robust capabilities to link multiple departments and employees together (for posting challenges/ideas). Other than this, everything is great!

My experience has been good with Idea Drop

Reviewed 5 years ago
Pros

It is easy to use as an end user and is similar to twitter. You can post ideas in short words and you don't have to fill a lot of info to submit idea, which is a plus for the user as it will not turn them away from dropping new ideas to the portal.

Cons

Limited reporting features but this being a niche company, I'm sure they will add more reporting capabilities.

Reviewed 5 years ago

On top of that, Idea Drop is capable of gathering and capturing ideas from anyone from anywhere in the world. This makes it a perfect ideation and innovation management platform for our team and office. With Idea Drop, everyone in our organization can submit ideas anonymously via a cloaking functionality.

Pros

Idea Drop is intuitive, removes hierarchical barriers, and makes it faster to get help and support across the business. Idea Drop allows gathering insight and ideas from across teams, departments and offices globally. It brings our entire business into a central innovation flow, engaging everyone from front-line staff to C-Level execs.

A great tool for encouraging collaborative innovation

Reviewed 6 years ago

Lots of new ideas but more importantly , excellent collaboration between employees

Pros

Easy to use and encourages interaction on ideas that are raised within the company. It automatically does the job of reviewing and filtering out the best (and most relevant) ideas It doubles up as a communication tool

Cons

Can sometimes appear to want to do too much i.e. be all things at once. Its key benefit is creating a platform to share and filter ideas - need to be careful it doesn't become a platform for trying to run an entire business

Intuitive and easy to use software that gives people the confidence to put their ideas forward

Reviewed 6 years ago
Pros

It really is straightforward and even the Luddites on your team will be able to use it from the outset without a lengthy on-boarding process. Our members don't want to receive hundreds of emails so by putting forward challenges and ideas on Idea Drop they're able to access all the information they need without clogging up their inboxes. They can then come back to us with feedback and new ideas which allows for a more collaborative process.

Reviewed 5 years ago
Pros

Idea Drop was really easy to use. One of the key benefits is also that it is so easy to configure, and is very well presented.

Cons

The price, when converted with a South African exchange rate is not ideal. That being said, the comparison between Idea Drop and other Innovation Platform Providers and their pricing is very similar.

Easy to use

Reviewed 4 years ago

I like that the company has opened up Idea Drop to all of the employees. There are some ideas shared that have been implemented, and others that are just simply complaints without a solution. The users should understand that there needs to be an ideal solution to their complaints.

Pros

This software is pretty easy to use. I like that you can answer anonymously, or with your name associated.

Cons

I can't really say anything I like least.

Idea Drop Simple and effective

Reviewed 2 years ago

My experience has been smooth. The app is easy to use, and it facilitates a better communication at the industry. The idea behind this management software is concise and empowers professionals to get hold of new products and innovation at the company.

Pros

I really appreciate the amount of helpful tools such as debugger, source editor, and so on. Besides, it' s graphically appealing and simple to use.

Cons

I consider that the idea of this software should be more globally expanded. In this way, more people would have access to this helpful tool. Allowing any type of organization to expand ideas should be a must in any business.
