Spigit overview

What is Spigit?

Planview Spigit is an online idea management platform which enables users to crowdsource ideas for new markets or products, and ways to streamline processes, increase employee engagement, and improve customer experiences. Customers, partners, and employees can all be included, regardless of role or location, with mobile access and support for eleven languages including Arabic, Chinese, and Spanish.

Spigit’s patented algorithms are designed to eliminate prejudice and subjectivity from the idea selection process, by using predictions supplied by users about the prospective costs and time involved in implementing ideas, and the potential revenue that could be generated. All ideas are visualized in a single graph, showing the predicted cost, time, and revenue for each idea, along with the level of agreement between all of the predictions, and a ranking of the ideas. Through this, ideas are not discounted because of when they were suggested or how popular they are.

Spigit includes gamification features designed to encourage and engage participants, such as game mechanics, virtual currency, and customizable incentives. Managers can track employee engagement by creating, customizing, and sharing dashboards, and reports can be generated. Ideas which are not implemented are automatically stored in an IP Bank, and Spigit pulls ideas from this repository over time, as market conditions or business targets change.

I love the tool. It's incredibly easy to use - very intuitive, nice clean interface & easy to learn.

Pros
It's not too complicated. You can ramp up very quickly on a learning curve. Once you've done 1-2 Challenges, setting one up is "old hat".

Cons
The only thing that I haven't tried, because it seems too daunting, is to try a local language specific challenge. So far we've only run them in English.

Aligned resources to strategic goals Increased customer engagement and satisfaction Inspired creative problem solving and quantifying value to users

Pros
Scalable and sustainable - enabled us to engage at a scale simply not possible without innovation and in a way that is sustainable in terms of resources and integration back into the business - also very intuitive to end users - our crowd loves getting onto the platform to collaborate. Best part of Spigit is their Customer Success model - you aren't just getting a crowd-sourcing innovation platform, you are getting a true solution with strategic support from folks who are experts in their field and dig in to understand your specific goals and challenges.

Cons
The admin side is a little less intuitive / takes some training and time to get comfortable. Fortunately they have amazing resources available - from online content to a comprehensive knowledgebase to highly responsive support team to customer success managers who are always in your corner, you can always get what you need within 48 hours - often faster. And the in person training gives you a chance to be hands on with the software so you can retain what you are learning.

Engagement - we're getting 30+ plus engagement now Cultural change Communication Idea Management

Pros
If you are looking to crowdsource ideas and insights, it's the complete product. People across the business from all different backgrounds - call centre agents, van drivers, sales people, engineers, they all use it and the feedback has only every been very positive. Unlike other tools in the same category, it's not just about collecting ideas. There's functionality in the system to manage the end to end lifecycle of ideas. Collecting more and more ideas simply isn't sustainable. You need to demonstrate the process works as well.

Cons
I'm splitting hairs because all mature, enterprise scale software packages have corners of the product which are clunky or hardly used and Spigit is no exception to that rule.

Benefits

Game mechanics, virtual currency, idea trading, and customizable incentives can be utilized to engage participants.

Inbuilt algorithms are designed to eliminate subjectivity from the idea selection process to surface ideas with the greatest potential and scalability, rather than those that are submitted first or are the most popular.

Dashboards are available to predict potential outcomes, costs, and the possible value of different ideas from crowd-derived ideas. Additionally dashboards measure challenge performance against industry benchmarks for performance comparison.

The platform supports eleven languages, including Chinese, Spanish, and Arabic, and can be accessed on mobile devices, allowing participation to be opened to individuals around the world.
