User friendly tool to help and speed up cooperation

Reviewed 5 years ago

Viima enabled us an inspiring start for cooperation between three large organisations and helped in involving over 1000 staff members to co-develop together.

Pros

This tool enabled us a smooth start for close cooperation between three organisations. Easy to use and inspiring platform. Users are surprised by the nice graphics which differ from many other platforms. Main functionalities are well chosen and an overview of all topics is easy to get. Recent activities are easy to follow. Simple but powerful tool. Excellent customer service!

Cons

Some functionalities could be still developed e.g. drag and drop functionality would have been nice at some phases and functionality where the users "apply" to a certain idea could be located in the main view of an idea.

Vendor response

Thank you for the review and the feedback! We'll definitely take your ideas into consideration in our future development. Hope you keep enjoying to use Viima. If there's anything, please let us know!

Easy functions, transparent innovation, easy to integrate, great people

Reviewed 5 years ago

More transparency in our ideation process and a fun way to suggest new ideas

Pros

Great idea to make innovating transparent and accessible for all. The UI is easy to use based on intuition and most features (idea process , categories etc) are defined by the user. The software is also easily integrated into Sharepoint and other sites / tools already in use in the company. This makes it easy to remind people Viima

Cons

Some of the features could still be developed, for example different colors for ideas in different phases of the ideation process. Right now they are all the same color. Also some reminders could be sent automatically, not just via email but also as text messages or as popups when people open Sharepoint (where we have integrated Viima). It is hard to get people to update the ideas, since the ideas are not designed to be updated and followed up in Viima. Maybe an integration with Trello, or a similar app would be ideal?

Vendor response

Thanks for the review and the feedback Helena! It is actually already possible to set the ideas on your Viima board to change color based on the phase of the ideation process that they're in. We're also always improving our notifications and will continue to add more channels for receiving these, the latest of which is Yammer. You are also correct in that Viima is not designed to be the place...

Using VIIMA for innovation proposal assessment in the NHS - UK

Reviewed 5 years ago

speed of process, visibility of decision making, stakeholder engagement

Pros

Absolutely transformed the way we go about communicating and assessing the proposals for innovative project funding we receive. Allows remote team assessment and agreement of actions immediately without meetings. User experience and functionality is extremely straightforward. Great features for scoring ideas, sharing and general governance / admin / user access control. Customer support is simply superb, they email or call following any request or note within minutes. Absolutely recommended, these are reliable and serious people.

Cons

Mobile UI is excellent but not as advanced as desktop for now - could benefit from a few tweaks - this is not a negative criticism however as any software would receive reasonably subjective user feedback on elements of UX and functionality.

Vendor response

Thank you for the review and the feedback, we really appreciate it! We're always working to make our app even better so we'll make sure to take these ideas for improving our mobile UI to our roadmap. We hope you continue enjoying the use of Viima and if there's ever anything, you know how to reach us!

Very happy. We can have the platform up and running in a matter of minutes.

Viima is the best platform for companies that are starting the innovation journey. Why? Ease of use, and great technical support.

The user interface needs improvement, but it's ok to start with.

Easy to use, trusted by our stakeholders. It has helped us a lot to launch our themeatic discussions

Reviewed 5 years ago

We were looking for some time to find a simple collaborative platform for our core stakeholders. Bringing people together and make them feel at ease to express themselves and present their ideas it is not an easy task. A good tool like VIIMA always helps to gather people together and collect ideas, opinions, thoughts and recommendations. It has definitely helped us to do our work better, especially to organise our thematic discussions and exchanges which are giving us good outcomes already.

Pros

Easy to use and manage, straight forward. Login is made easy even by using yout office 365 credentials.

Cons

There is not a horizontal dashboard to manage all of your boards at once as a the general administrator of the account

Vendor response

Thanks for the positive review Konstantinos! Improving the management options available for our administrators on the organization level is definitely an area we're looking to further improve in the future. We've, for example, just started working on improving the analytics capabilities related to this.

Great software to get the whole organization participating in new business development

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

Viima has helped us to structure our idea innovation management process and ensure that it is transparent to all employees. Anyone can add new business ideas, comment on their colleagues ideas and follow along as ideas are evaluated and tested with customers. We can document all our work in the same place. The possibility to tag people and integrations with O365 and Yammer also make it easy to engage people to use the software. We keep finding new use cases for Viima some teams use it to gather internal development suggestions, others for gathering client-specific ideas. This is possible as it is easy to create and customize new boards for different needs.

Cons

Managing users could be improved so that a users are automatically deleted if they leave the company.

Vendor response

Thank you for the review and for our co-operation! When using SSO integrations, users will now lose access to Viima as soon as they leave the company, so from a permissions point-of-view this isn't an issue. However, we agree that there are things that could be done to improve on this area and we'll certainly take your suggestion into consideration for the future!

The best idea management tool we could find

Reviewed 4 years ago

Viima has been crucial to a successful innovation campaign that spanned over different idea lifecycle stages and brought over 200 participants from across the globe together. The Viima team has been tremendously supportive to get the very best out of the tool for our current use case and are not only highly professional, but also fun people to work with.

Pros

- Ease of use / simplicity - Engaging visualisation - Customization possibilities - Reporting and idea assessment capabilities - Mobile app

Cons

Nothing. Additional value to users could potentially be offered through further integrations (e.g. task mgmt tools) and even more customization possibilities.

Vendor response

Thank you for the review Andreas! It's been a pleasure working with you. Also, rest assured, we're planning to add even more integrations and customization options in the future.

Excellent Tool To Idea Connect Remotely!

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

Viima has been such an awesome tool for me and our team! While working across multiple time zones with partners all around the globe it is such a game changer to be able to have a collective idea party room. It's literally buzzing with energy around the clock as we are constantly popping in an out from our various cities and locations. This has been critical to actually executing on ideas which previously would fail to be followed up on!

Cons

There have been a couple of instances where one of our team members was not fully connected on the same page with everyone else. I am not sure if it was his location having any kind of filters but after a couple weeks he was fully integrated with us and rocking!

Easy and fun way to generate idea

Reviewed a year ago

For the moment we are using as a continuous improvement system. But we are thinking on extending this for specific project and even use this for the weekly team meeting minutes.

Pros

It is very easy to understand, and even people with less technical interest got to use it very fast and enjoy using it.

Cons

The bubble are fun and colourful, it is not always clear why they keep changing position and the filter system is not always very visible.

Teams of our R&I center use it as an anonymous digital box for questions, and for brainstormings.

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

Very simple and intuitive interface : no need for a training. Customization possibilities of the interface are quite numerous Works on computer as on portable devices Stable software.

Cons

Reports for visualization of results and export of data could be enhanced. User management console could use profiles.

Vendor response

Thank you very much for the positive review, the review and your feedback are both highly appreciated! Reports and visualization are indeed an area that we're already working to improve and are looking forward to releasing improvements related to that in the near future. We're actually just started work on the next version of user profiles. In the beginning, these shall be quite lightweight, but we'll continue to improve on these in the future as well.

Great tool for idea tracking, simple and effective, and with robust API!

Reviewed 5 years ago

It allowed our organization to easily track product ideas, whereas before there was no process or tool for this.

Pros

Simple to set up and get started, it made it really easy to deploy and people got used to it very quickly Good price for the features, it covers most of the features we were looking for a fraction of the price from bigger/more stablished tools It has a reliable API we have used to integrate with JIRA, which was a must for us.

Cons

Still lacks some functionalities, what it does it does it well but could use a couple more options for user management and customization.
