Solve real buisness problems with more, diverse ideas
smartcrowds Ideas is an easy to use, flexible cloud solution that helps organisations rapidly crowdsource diverse solutions and ideas for their most pressing challenges and opportunities.
smartcrowds Ideas takes the complexity out of idea crowdsourcing using a set of out-of the-box idea challenge templates and common organisational crowd structures that can be easily and rapidly customised for publication to the people who know your products and services best - your intrapreneurs (employees) and extrapreneurs (customers/partners/suppliers)
Our unique approach helps stimulate diverse thinking from idea contributors, increasing the likelihood of identifying genuine breakthroughs, and the structured idea evaluation framework - closely aligned with your organisation priorities - helps ensure that ideas that are progressed make a direct contribution to the organisation’s success.
With all the familiar tools expected of a modern social collaborative platform, delivered on the cloud with 24/7 availability on any device, smartcrowds Ideas makes it easy for everyone to get involved in the conversation, get their voice heard, and make a contribution no matter how large or small.
Tap into customer or staff sentiment to establish their biggest pain points or most important wants and needs, and launch campaigns and initiatives to translate their input into great ideas and solutions
