“Excellent innovation software”

Pros: It's a practical and easy-to-use tool, and helped us to generate several insights and innovation projects in a short time, generating gains for the company.

“Ding makes the difference”

Overall: The experience has been quite good, highlighting the professionalism and spirit of sharing and building the EXAGO team. Always available to improve each step, always in active listening with customers, is indeed remarkable and we could not fail to highlight this point.

Pros: It is quite complete and able to build the entire route and include all stakeholders. It enables results online, giving the management team the freedom of full access and personalized management. We call it DING and within our company it has become a reference.
Cons: We feel the need to use a more communication layer, to have a news roll on the front page and to use the initial banner in a more active way.

“Fostering innovation since 2009”

Pros: It's a software that truly enhance innovation throughout all the company. With this software everyone can share their ideas, discuss them with the peers, invest on other ideas. It really democratize the innovation process.
Cons: I would like to be autonomous on the customization of the look and feel of the software.

Ideal solution for ongoing strategic innovation support - rich feature set, great support from Exago.

We used Exago to support an innovation initiative involving a very spread out population. The Exago services team led us very effectively through the design of our program and the configuration of the platform, from phases to challenges to incentives. Recruitment was a challenge because our participants work for many different organizations, but the Exago team was very creative and persistent in supporting our efforts. Management of the platform aspects of the program was very smooth, and the Exago team were very responsive to any questions or requests.

The Exago Innovation is a dynamic company with professional excellence. With the 'People @ Liberty' program, the Liberty Seguros had the pleasure of working together with Exago Innovation. Together we have created value for both companies.

Great tool to get ideas for strategic business challenges and to quickly identify the best ones, easily tracking results

- The solution is quite adaptable and allows for several customisations, which is great since we wanted to configure our own innovation workflow
- The strong gamification mechanisms seem to efficiently promote employee engagement and sustain participation
- It's easy to use
- The support team is great and all shared expertise was insightful


The solution was used with our client to engage employees in strategic challenges we had defined. It also allowed us to generate insights around those challenges to leverage the ideation stage.
We were able to get many really interesting ideas for the challenges, with strong levels of participation. We felt everyone was motivated to take part in the company’s innovation programme.

Exago Start, their entry-point innovation platform, is a good solution for someone searching for a simple tool to implement an innovation initiative quickly. For companies looking for a more adaptable solution, and who are more experienced with innovation management, Exago Smart edition has additional flexibility in the workflow and key configurations.
Even with 8 languages available, the tool seems prepared for global initiatives with Google translation integration.

Very impressed with the overall service and functionality

Pros: The ability to have multiple idea selection criteria is what really sets this software apart. It allows you to tailor the experience inn a way other platforms do not. It's also very intuitive and does a great job of organizing the artifacts so that they all get a fair viewing.

Cons: think some improvements could be made in terms of the pace at which UAT changes are put into production. Also, in some instances, it would be better if someone internally was able to make changes as long as they had the right level of training.
