Used Yambla to gather innovative ideas within the company

2021-07-06

We used Yambla a few years ago to set up an crowdsourced ideation program. The program wasn't scaled further due to other priorities and resource constraints.

Pros

We selected Yambla because of the social approach to innovation, very easy to use, simple to understand for users (vs more complex innovation management platforms).

Cons

Focus is less on innovation management (funnel, process tracking)- there's a basic version of that through the project status flow, but the strength of Yambla is in the social ideation.

Among the ideas management tools, there is Yambla

2020-11-24

Yambla is used in our company to amplify collaborative innovation, by encouraging employees, across all departments, to think about many challenges, both in terms of operational excellence and the development of new products and services. Through competitions, we mobilize employees, allowing them to give free rein to their creativity, while ensuring consistency with the desired strategic objectives.

Pros

- Rigorous structure and principles, but consistent and easy to use - Complete management of the life cycle of ideas (from genesis to death). - Strong in community engagement. - Reliable tool

Cons

- Analytics may be too limited in some cases. - For a business administrator, Yambla must be "practiced" in order to be able to use it to its full potential; it is not always self-explanatory

Solid idea creation platform with fantastic support from Yambla team

2022-01-10

Pros

ease of use, clean and intuitive UX design, flexible UX design, ongoing support of a success manager, lack of useless features that increase the pricing in other cases, social aspects and people engagment features (commenting on others ideas/ sharing/ liking) a real deal breaker is a auto-translate feature that enables cooperation of multilanguage teams in the same environment with content (comments, ideas) translated into the user's own language

Cons

maybe a lacking customization of communication/ update messages (email messages) from the platform level, however done semi-manually by a success manager, so everything went smoothly

Admin & User-Friendly Ideation Platform

2021-08-17

We met with the management team monthly to review all the ideas submitted that also met certain support criteria.

Pros

Also, Yambla supports single-sign-on, so the users would be able to access the platform instantly.

Cons

Nothing comes to mind. We never had any outages. Also the support team was excellent and would reach out to us promptly if I had questions.

Transparency to the innovation process

2021-08-09

We have been satisfied with the tool and all of our customer specific configurations were deployed smoothly.

Pros

Everyone is able to share an idea, you can create different kind of challenges, you can easily see the status of your ideas, and you will get very good support from the Yambla contact person

Cons

Some users say the UI is a little bit cluttered (too many features maybe).

State of the art, easy to use and highly customizable innovation platform

2021-06-27

Through Yambla, we can integrate the candidates perfectly in our recruiting process.

Pros

We already used it for completely different purposes, but with the opportunity to choose every ideation process step manually for every occasion, we could create precisely the ideation/collaboration surrounding that has fit most to our needs.

Cons

A few basic features like an integrated tutorial for new users are still missing (but I know that the team is already working on it).

Hi Timon,

Wow, we are blown away by your positive words! It's fantastic to hear that you've been able to leverage the flexibility of the platform to support your different program needs.

Products that require tutorials are bad products! All jokes aside, some extra guidance for new users would be welcome, and we are working on making that happen. Stay tuned!

Thanks again for your positive words and for writing such a detailed review.
