    Easy way to crowdsource and evaluate ideas from busy people

    Reviewed 8 months ago

    When I was evaluating the options, one thing that stood out with Ideawake was the people. It's a big enough company to deliver top-notch software and customer service but small enough to know team members by name. Because Ideawake is nimble, our rep was able to customize the software to fit one especially complex idea challenge. They listen, respond quickly and value their customers.

    Pros

    It's easy for idea challenge participants to access the site through single sign-on, contribute ideas and interact with others by leaving comments or upvoting other people's ideas. One "complaint" we got from an early challenge was that it was so easy, people thought there had to be something wrong. Another huge benefit is its accessibility outside the network. Health care workers don't have extra time to use networked computers, so Ideawake makes it easy to engage with them on the smartphones, tablets or any computer.

    Cons

    The current version is a bit tricky to set up challenges, but the Ideawake team is very accessible and hugely helpful, so we lean on them for back-end help. Once an idea challenge launches, we can typically troubleshoot most issues. I have seen a demo of the next platform, which will make it easier for administrators, so this shouldn't be as much of an issue.

    Map-out your innovative ideas and make it happen

    Reviewed 2 years ago

    Great!

    Pros

    Crowdsourcing within your organization has never been so problematic before thanks to Ideawake, its gamification helps a lot and it boosts contributors’ motivation to validate their ideas. Innovation is an important part of any organization especially in the B2B Marketing and Advertising Industry where constant ideas need to be materialized so that innovation is in constant motion.

    Cons

    Maybe because of its great features, some contributors will think out-of-this-world ideas not out-of-this-box ideas hindering efficient gamification but we can handle it.

    Excellent customer service, very responsive team, intuitive product

    Reviewed 3 years ago

    Increased engagement, idea generation, innovation.

    Pros

    The ideas that we gathered have been an excellent starting point for a variety of projects and initiatives. The Ideawake platform allowed us to put a finger on the pulse of our organization in a way that would have taken a significant amount of time and effort in the past. We had a solid participation rate with very little training required.

    Cons

    We had a few instances where the software functions did not work properly and this impacted our ability to engage with users on their ideas. The Ideawake team did their best to quickly resolve the issues and were very responsive. However, some testing in advance of rolling out changes would be helpful.
