Spigit Pricing, Features, Reviews & Comparison of Alternatives


#1 global idea management software for enterprise innovation

4.43/5 (49 reviews)

Spigit overview

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 have been working with the Spigit platform for a few open innovation challenges and programs within my innovation-related roles in two large corporations. Having experience of partnering with Spigit and a few of its competitors, I would definitely recommend Spigit among all of them. This platform is flexible enough to provide you with good basis for your open innovation initiatives both within your organization and with the external innovation community. It allows you to manage challenges/programs end-to-end just using one platform and its online functionality. It definitely makes your work easier and less time/effort consuming!

The software is fairly easy to use and navigate from a user's perspective. It has a somewhat similar feel to other social medial platforms and appeals to team members in this way. I really appreciate the ability to generate customized reports during and after challenges as well within Insights, the analytics platform of the Spigit software. This allows for open communication to sponsors around participation from the crowd and can signal a need for additional communication if challenge activity is low. It is very interactive overall and makes for a fun user experience while posting ideas and collaborating with others!

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.
