    Pros
    Analytics are solid, the product is always improving and the customer support is excellent.
    We have learned a great deal from the S6 customer success team and from other users and this has directly benefited our own implementation.
    How straightforward and interactive it is. The analytics features are also great and with the introduction of customisable fields, it really helps me to analyse my content.
    Cons
    The platform looks very different to any of the other software that we use which has been intimidating for staff who are using it for reviews or being brought on board as admins.
    Some of the customisation functionality is limited. Cannot save public views, changing custom fields can create problems, and the idea card is not editable in a public way.
    Even if part of strategic meetings and product pipelines, it’s very difficult to get tailored features implemented.

    Superior Product and Service

    Reviewed a year ago

    Our tool is branded Ignite and it enables every colleague to impact T&F by suggesting ideas that we test, trial, and ultimately use to advance and grow our business. One of the most critical drivers of innovation within our organization is our people, and there is no shortage of new, creative, and unique ideas throughout Advanced Learning. Sideways6 has provided the channel for this business-critical initiative.

    Pros

    The most impactful feature is Sideways6's seamless integration with Microsoft Teams. It was vital for me to find a product that was easy to use and that would meet colleagues where they are already collaborating.

    Cons

    I am very pleased with how Sideways6 considers feedback and the transparency of its roadmaps for future enhancements and functionality. My only challenge is working with digital banners when creating the campaigns. Sometimes you need to play with the dimensions, but this is a minor inconvenience easily resolved.

    Vendor response

    Thank you for your review Michelle. It makes a world of difference to our work to hear that our product is being utilized with impact and we know from working with you how deep the integration goes with your teams. Really appreciate your comments, and, as ever, don't hesitate to reach out for suggestions or thoughts.

    Sideways 6 is so much more than an ideation platform

    Reviewed a year ago

    One of the most impressive things about working with Sideways 6 has been how they 'walk the walk' of ideation and consult with their customers about what would make their products better. I have been invited to give loads of feedback on new features and my thoughts and ideas have been welcomed and even implemented!

    Pros

    Sideways 6 seamlessly integrates with Yammer and Teams and also has a Forms option. These different integrations mean that we can now reach more of our staff in more ways. We have used some of the features of Sideways 6 for things other than ideation including scheduling communications, creating a chat bot and monitoring sentiment scoring.

    Cons

    The platform looks very different to any of the other software that we use which has been intimidating for staff who are using it for reviews or being brought on board as admins

    Vendor response

    Thank you so much for your feedback and review Karen, it's incredibly useful and humbling to read that our product is landing so well and that you have noticed that your ideas have been taken on board. Product fir and customer feedback is absolutely front and centre to everything that we do, as you know. Much appreciated.

    Good Idea Management platform

    Reviewed 4 years ago

    We are happy with the platform although there is room for improvement on user interface, panel reviews and additional features such as the possibility to have a campaign website

    Pros

    The configuration of a campaign is easy and straightforward. It is also quite easy to create and update an online form. The reporting functionality is very useful Have a lot of flexibility to create required fields for the campaign. The configuration of rules is also quite flexible.

    Cons

    It would be very useful a better way to export the ideas out of the platform having a connection between the idea and the supporting files associated, at the moment it is imposible to correlate when exporting to a spreadsheet. The panel review panel it is not very intuitive to score the ideas and we need to host a session to help experts to go idea by idea. The scoring criteria could be improved. The possibility to have a website to describe a challenge in the same way you can create the form so it is not necessary to have another portal with the description of the challenges. The possibility to have a Write API to enter idea through an external form or interface (different to workplace or Sideways6 form)

    Easy to use software with a great team backing it up

    Reviewed 4 years ago

    The software is good but the team behind it are great I've been working with the team for around two years now and nothing is too much trouble for them. They are all hard working, committed and willing to help at the drop of a hat.

    Pros

    The ability to stand up a campaign and then choose either "out of the box" or extremely high levels of customisation is a plus point. The opportunity to learn (with support) how to make complicated flows and chatbots and all of the different integrations methods are also plus points

    Cons

    If I really had to pick something, I'd say a desired feature would be for the Automations to be able to pick up on the fact we have more than one form integration on a single campaign

    Sideways 6 Review - Amey

    Reviewed 4 years ago

    I took up the role as Springboard manager in October 2020 and overall i think the experience has been really positive but also a learning experience. I didn't appreciate the number of internal resources/ engagement that was required but employees at Sideways6 have always been supportive and try and help as best as possible. The customer Manager, [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] is always available to help with internal processes and shared examples from other customers that has helped me in my role.

    Pros

    Sideways 6 enables a workforce of over 16,000 people feel engaged and valued to contribute to the future look of the business. Ideas submitted in a central system also enables business units and accounts to share best practice to maximise the benefits on a new idea.

    Cons

    An area of improvement for Sideways would be the review functionality - simple features such as adding a filter option that enables filtering of business unit or subject i.e. HR ideas would result in it being more user friendly.
