What is Ideawake?

Ideawake is an innovation management platform that captures and organizes the collective intelligence of employees and customers. Users are given the chance to collaborate on challenges and questions inside the organization, and throw their support behind the ideas they see as the most profitable or attractive based on their knowledge and experience.

By expanding the scope of those involved in the decision-making process, Ideawake allows management to obtain new insights into the issues they’re facing based on feedback from the people affected directly. Those insights lead them to launch new initiatives to boost operational efficiency and improve employee morale, all while helping them to build a system for continuous improvement inside the company.

Ideawake consists of two modules. The first is a virtual brainstorming room where individuals can post their ideas in an open-ended format on topics set by management. Some examples include ideas for new products, product-line extensions, and improving employee productivity. This ideation module is meant to capture the raw creativity of participants.

The second module is a prediction market, which aggregates participant opinions about a specific event in the future to predict which outcome has the highest probability of occurring. Applications include forecasting sales, competitive analysis, and monitoring project deadlines.

To incentivize participation, our platform uses a gamification system that gives users points for participation, which can be used to track performance. At the end of each quarter, management can offer prizes of their choosing to the top performing participants.

When I was evaluating the options, one thing that stood out with Ideawake was the people. It's a big enough company to deliver top-notch software and customer service but small enough to know team members by name. Because Ideawake is nimble, our rep was able to customize the software to fit one especially complex idea challenge. They listen, respond quickly and value their customers.

It's easy for idea challenge participants to access the site through single sign-on, contribute ideas and interact with others by leaving comments or upvoting other people's ideas. One "complaint" we got from an early challenge was that it was so easy, people thought there had to be something wrong. Another huge benefit is its accessibility outside the network. Health care workers don't have extra time to use networked computers, so Ideawake makes it easy to engage with them on the smartphones, tablets or any computer.

Overall experience is exceptional. They are eager to update the platform and make improvements throughout the work. It's been a joy to work with them.

Software is very intuitive. We appreciated the ability to track and manage the ideas as they came through the system. Evaluation and collaboration was easily achieved via the software. The up-voting was a big hit.

The customer support in helping prepare us for our first innovation challenge was extremely helpful.

The tool has been incredibly easy to use. We didn't do any training for our first innovation challenge and yet we exceeded our usage goals. When we had a question on something the team was quick to help answer them. Also enjoyed the flexibility in setting up our own unique workflow for ideas to go through. Its more than a tool, there is also a process and best practices we got to take advantage of.

Whenever we have meetings with the creative and technical departments, we are always brainstorming about ideas. I call it the meeting with the greatest minds because I’m always learning something new. It keeps me motivated to work better. Ideawake is an amazing application that allows you to put this ideas into good use. We compile them together and see which ones we can apply to our work. We also use it for the outside consumers because they are the ones who can provide helpful advice. Their added features are project management, tracking and status developments. Such a useful software for everyone.

Great! Crowdsourcing within your organization has never been so problematic before thanks to Ideawake, its gamification helps a lot and it boosts contributors’ motivation to validate their ideas. Innovation is an important part of any organization especially in the B2B Marketing and Advertising Industry where constant ideas need to be materialized so that innovation is in constant motion.

Quite simply: Ideawake combines all of the most desirable features the competitors miss in one way or another (and likely a much higher price). What I like best is Ideawake is set to scale with your company - NOT built to be a one-size / one price / consulting required solution. > Activity Dashboard > Challenges -> Fixed or open duration > Brainstorming > Collaboration > Creator Tracking > Idea Ranking > Project Tracking > Status Tracking > Easy Administration > Can securely keep idea management internal, AND open up to external sources.
