All the tools you need to go from ideas to results
InnovationCast is the best innovation management technology to support your innovation system. It connects and empowers your people with the tools they need to make innovation happen.
Find insights that inspire innovation
Pick up weak signals that can affect your growth and profitability. And make sure you act on them! Everyone can become a sensor and communicate what they see that may influence innovation. Allow your people to identify opportunities, issues and risks.
Empower people to become innovation scouts and fuel your “innovation funnel”
See what competitors don’t, through an interplay of environmental monitoring and analysis
Actively capture information on consumer feedback and behaviour, trends, technologies or startups
Get stronger ideas faster
Next-generation idea management features allow for a quick exchange of ideas among people. Everyone can build on each other's ideas to make them the best they can be, as fast as possible. Iteration, inclusiveness, and diversity of thinking will help you turn good ideas into great ideas in no time!
Use Ideation Challenges to focus innovation on pressing issues or opportunities
Use Ideation Categories to surface other unforeseen possibilities
Refine ideas with actionable feedback, so they become as best as possible when they reach the assessment stage
Select ideas that can make a difference
Assessing and selecting which ideas should move forward is not an easy task. When dealing with something new, we can never know for sure upfront. That’s why we enable you to use multiple frameworks, so your evaluators can profile, evaluate and select different kinds of ideas with confidence.
Use the market’s most flexible workflow engine to set up your processes
Prioritize your investments based on idea potential, not popularity
Get ideas transparently assessed, based on their merit
Test ideas quickly and cheaply
The ability to test, learn and iterate ideas is the key to productive innovation. Ambitious ideas may work. Or may not work... So how can you know, without spending too much? You can’t be sure of the outcomes in advance. But you can provide your teams with the appropriate tools, process and structure to empower them to experiment and capture learnings at startup speed and with less expense.
Get a clear picture of the underlying assumptions and risks of your ideas
Drive an entrepreneurial mindset focused on the ability to validate and prove value
Save money by starting small and proving that a larger investment is worthwhile
Take the best ideas to the finish line
The majority of innovative ideas will fail. We all know it by heart. Others will return a smaller value than expected, which can still compound towards positive results. That’s why you need to adopt an agile investment strategy: continually adjust funding based on progress and potential value, and kill the ‘zombie projects’ to free up resources for ideas that continue to show promise.
Help create connections between people and ideas that otherwise wouldn’t occur
Engage everyone in a cross-company collaboration hub or segment audiences in distinct communities
Enable communication in every direction: top-down and bottom-up
Know what's happening. Act on time.
Keep track of your innovation pulse in real-time. Successful innovation requires specific mechanisms to understand progress and results. InnovationCast helps you monitor and evaluate innovation-causing behaviours, the status and efficiency of your process, and the impact created by innovation.
Meet the Radar: foster discovery to drive innovation
Innovation is a team sport. No organization is an island, and open innovation is critical to be able to produce meaningful results. We need to learn from others, work with others and find the best partners to make innovation happen. That's why we help you scan the horizon to find startups, understand trends, identify technologies as they unfold.
ONBOARD, EDUCATE, ENGAGE
Enable people to create extraordinary innovations
Telling people that innovation is now part of their job is not enough. In fact, the most significant success factor in innovation is having motivated and qualified people working on it.
TALENT, RECOGNITION AND REWARDS
Recognize the work of the smart people you have
Recognize and reward those who help create value through innovation. Part of creating an innovation culture is showing that innovation is not just for big tech companies. You can do it too.
COLLABORATION WITH PURPOSE
Community tools that help build an Innovation Ecosystem
Innovation management is no longer a sporadic event or a two-year program. It’s becoming a dedicated function and requires establishing an ecosystem where ideas be brought to life.
