The platform that innovation managers should definitely consider!

Reviewed 8 years ago

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!

Pros

- end-to-end management of challenges/programs (application management -> evaluations -> ranking -> selection) - community management, including voting and comments - great support from Spigit managers who are always ready to give you a good piece of advice - sophisticated reporting system (you can get any information you want, however sometimes it is not very straight-forward :) )

Cons

As any platform, Spigit has some bugs that are normally being fixed by the team very quickly. Some additional functionality might be useful (task assignment based on multiple conditions, geography, etc.) More user-friendly reporting (sometime it takes time to understand how to to do this or that report)

Vendor response

Anna, it's been a pleasure working with you as a customer. Thanks for helping us spread our software to the innovation community at large. Keep the feedback coming.

Excellent Innovation Management Tool

Reviewed 6 years ago

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.

Fantastic experience to easily and quickly share ideas across different business unit functions

Reviewed 6 years ago

Engagement across business functions and stakeholders

Pros

The ability to easily create feedback sessions that are customized to the business need. For instance, survey questions can be free form vs. multiple choice; individuals can be tagged to receive feedback on certain categories; we can add unique pictures or change the time a challenge runs. It's super easy to use and has so much functionality. It supports deep engagement across teams and stakeholders and all the added functionality (such as email alerts for tagged posts or metrics to see how many ideas have been upvoted) make it a fantastic tool.

Cons

This software is great and can think of no improvements. Maybe the only suggestion is to have a functionality to allow for anonymous feedback - however, this should be up to the administrator of a challenge/idea to permit anonymous responses or not.

Spigit platform has provided multiple uses for our company; however, it could be more robust.

Reviewed 6 years ago

E-platform to capture project details and assess project validity. Also, successful completion of innovation challenge with ideas that will bring savings to our business.

Pros

I was able to self-teach myself how to navigate and configure the software. It also works great for idea management and progression- the voting and collaboration is a powerful tool that provides quick feedback. We've been able to use the platform for both Innovation Challenges and as a Project Tracker. The project section of the site captures key Initiation details about each project and enable us to review and assess validity of each proposed project.

Cons

The terminology; a definitions manual would be great to explain the community hierarchy and roles within the system. The admin training provided was very basic; it would be good if it was more specialised and not just targeted at beginners.

Spigit has helped us engage our team members in a new and exciting way - every idea matters!

Reviewed 6 years ago
Pros

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!

Cons

From an Admin perspective, there are some fields that are "locked in" the idea submission form, which can be frustrating at times when sponsors don't want those visible to team members for their particular challenge. There are also some features like conditional drop downs that aren't currently unavailable that would be helpful to have for certain challenges.

Our experience to date has been great and the support of the Spigit team has been invaluable.

Reviewed 7 years ago
Pros

I value the transparency, ease of use and gamification. It make innovation easy to facilitate and track from an end to end process.

Cons

the current functionality of running a challenge in different languages. we need to run all challenges in English and French. I want to be able to have French users log into a French experience aka wording, on the same platform as English users would see in English. SSO preferences should be able to get them the language they need. We would then let all users enter ideas in their language of choice and not worry about translating that piece. Our main challenge is having all users on the same platform sharing ideas, but seeing the tool itself display in their language of choice in terms of the fields. It doesn't 't currently perform to our needs and French regulations we need to adhere too.

Driving our Innovation Program

Reviewed 8 years ago

We are using Spigit's tool, having called it "Idea Stream" to drive innovation across our teams that support our clients. They use this tool to "Innovate For" and Innovate With" our clients. In less than 6 months we have launched over 200 challenges that have created over 5K ideas. We are now moving forward across our teams to implement and transform these idea into results.

Pros

Ease of use for the capture of ideas, collaboration and synthesizing of top ideas.

Cons

Would like a more BPM oriented workflow with decision criteria, rules and different paths

Strong innovation platform for managing a large number of ideas and posts

Reviewed 8 years ago

Pros: - Easy to use for end user. - Idea management via graduation thresholds - Gamification settings - points - A platform for understanding the business - ideas are often posted that are relevant to the situation our front line staff are experiencing and want to improve or change. - Easy for admin to review ideas in each stage/ manage their progress appropriately - Reporting is easy to use (the upgrade was a positive and needed change!) Cons: - Managing ideas that have been "accepted/ implemented". Typically have to do this offline. Perhaps need a `investigating further` option. - Driving user engagement - could the platform have tools to support with this more?

Spigit Idea Management

Reviewed 7 years ago

Spigit is an industry leader when it comes to idea management and I have had the experience of interacting with their team to institutionalize the solution in one of my past employments. Their team engages well and provides a good amount of training. At its completion, you will be able to confidently use, manage and administer your innovation challenge.

Pros

Ease of use

Cons

From a platform perspective, there is nothing to complain. I would like to see upskilling engagements to allow users to better use their platform more effectively. Perhaps in the last 2 years they have included it already.

The user experience is good and there are a lot of features

Reviewed 8 years ago

Our always on platform is pretty easy for general users, and the additional challenge based environment is a great way to engage the crowd. I especially like the analytics and ROI tools. They also have a great advanced training program. Out of the box, it seems like Spigit has the best thing going. However, some of the admin setup is quite complicated, with antiquated workflows and custom integration isn't their strong suit. I got to see a preview of their newest upgrade plans, and it looks like many of their older tech is being brought up to today's standards and beyond. I am anxious to see the new version.

The platform allows for maximum collaboration. Teams are able to quickly and easily use it to submit and collaborate on ideas during innovation challenges.

This software makes it easier for us to manage the sources of innovation and collaborate on new initiatives.

Pros

I like the functionality and visibility that the dashboard provides. This will help us segment where the best innovation is coming from within the organization.

There are so many customizable features, it may be distracting from an end user perspective. At the same time there could be more ways we leverage the technology that we are not currently aware of.
