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

2016-09-06

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.

Pros

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.

Cons

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

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

Pros

It automatically does the job of reviewing and filtering out the best (and most relevant) ideas It doubles up as a communication tool

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

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

2017-11-02

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.

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!)

My experience has been good with Idea Drop

2018-02-14

Pros

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.
