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

2017-10-26

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.

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.

User friendly tool to help and speed up cooperation

2017-12-21

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

Recent activities are easy to follow.

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.

2018-06-27

Pros

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

2019-01-07

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

Additional value to users could potentially be offered through further integrations (e.g. task mgmt tools) and even more customization possibilities.

Using VIIMA for innovation proposal assessment in the NHS - UK

2017-06-08

speed of process, visibility of decision making, stakeholder engagement

Pros

User experience and functionality is extremely straightforward.

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.

Helena Mustelin

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

2017-09-29

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.

Cons

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).

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 where information is stored as ideas are being implemented. Each company has specific requirements related to their business so while Viima is great for the ideation and concept phases of development, we always recommend using the project management tools you already have for that purpose. This way you'll get the best of both worlds! We're going to add integrations to the most common ones, such as Trello and JIRA, in the near future to provide you with a seamless flow of information so stay tuned!

We'll be in touch shortly to make sure you're able to get the most out of Viima!

2017-10-24

We were looking for some time to find a simple collaborative platform for our core stakeholders.

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

Viima is easy and fun to use. Intuitive, so there's no need for long manuals or training for users.

2017-11-24

In an organization such as our's, a product that is easy to use, with an intuitive user interface, is a must.

Pros

Users are able to jump in and contribute when ever they have an idea or a problem that needs to be solved. Great tool for discussing different ideas and needs together with the organization and our customers.

Cons

For our purposes (ideation and discussion in the spirit of co-creation) this software fits well, but if you're in need of a software that deals more with the process and decision making you might need something heavier.

Regarding the support for a heavier decision-making process within the tool, that is something we've identified as a future development area and we'll be adding a number of new features to support these kinds of requirements without sacrificing the ease of use that is core for our software.

I've been really satisfied with Viima's intuitive and fun tool as well as with the proactive support

2017-06-09

Great ideation tool for both the Company and for the customer relations outside the Company.

Pros

Viima's visual user interface has helped us to motivate our employees to participate into giving their own ideas and developing the ideas of others.

Cons

Viima can send out notification emails to users on relevant occasions and these emails have only been available in English.

Viima offers a user-friendly, efficient and easily implemented way for crowdsourcing new ideas

2017-10-27

We replaced our old initiative system completely with Viima. We are using the software for collecting new ideas and innovations, asking opinions from our employees and from our customers. Furthermore, we use the application to collect customer feedback.

Pros

Intuitive user interface, several possibilities to apply the software for diffferent purposes (e.g. personnel queries, voice of customer, collecting and managing initiatives etc.).

Cons

I hope this feature would come soon.

Excellent Tool To Idea Connect Remotely!

2018-12-17

Pros

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.

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 to use for both administers & users. Fun & new way to collect ideas from a big crowd.

2017-12-21

We got better ideas from our target group than we've gotten previous years

Pros

One of the best features is the ability to comment on suggestions/ ideas because it enables conversation/ interaction between users and this actually makes the original ideas better.

Cons

The basic version can't be modified that much; you can change the colours & add your logo & own texts but that's it. Then again it's enough for basic use.

A great tool (even in french now :) )

2018-01-04

Viima is a great tool to collect and work on ideas, even in an organisation with a lot of staff members.

Pros

Very easy to configure ; nice to the eyes ; now in french, and that point is really important for us, of course ; our users were able to work with Viima without any help at all, and that means a good UX, that helps to focus on the important part : ideas.

Cons

It would be nice to be able to duplicate some boards, in order to work with multiple different teams without having to set up X boards with similar settings.

Viima works beautifully within the idea proposals and moderating tasks we work today.

2017-10-11

Is this question concerning Wiima or Capterra? If Viima - as already descripted: works! If Capterra: seems to work as well, and more knowledge needed before I'm ready to identify the benefits.

Pros

The best feature for the users seems to be the vote button.

Great Experience and Customer Service

2018-05-09

Pros

The layout of Viima is really engaging and so easy to customise.

Cons

Our business required a fully on-premise solution, with neither the database nor the application sitting in the cloud. This, unfortunately, was the main reason that Viima could not be recommended for our requirement.

Thanks for the positive review!

We would've loved to work with you but unfortunately couldn't offer a solution that would've met all the needs you had for an on-premise solution with the current time-table.

I wish you the best of luck in finding a suitable solution!

Also, while we're primarily focusing on developing our SaaS offering, we're continuing to invest on providing more flexible on-premise solutions in the future.
