A view of a Planview Enterprise Ideation Management Web-based Idea Campaign

Your customers and users will tell you what about your product or service is valuable and what isn't, what would be a wonderful addition, and what would make them flee to your competitor or workaround tools.

Now, you can ask them, easily and quickly, and they can respond just as simply, in Idea Campaigns you launch in collaborative Web communities that allow them to register their ideas and interact with each other by voting on these ideas. You get a collective, objective approach to gathering a complete picture of "what's hot and what's not," as far as your customers are concerned.

Infuse the Voice of the Customer into Your Ideation Process

Planview Enterprise Ideation Management helps you manage the distribution, ranking, and decision-making for large scale numbers of ideas. With built-in, templated idea screening, scorecarding, action items, batch operations, and categorization, it automates the routing of ideas across silos and geographies to cross-functional teams to ensure the innovation process keeps moving forward and that ideas get in front of decision-makers to determine if they make the cut, and, if so, what part of the optimal product or service mix they form.

Speed Time to Value of Ideas

Enter winning ideas into the Planview Enterprise portfolio management system. From there, Product Development, Product Management, and IT managers can perform what-if analysis early in the lifecycle to ensure that the work requested is technically and financially feasible. The lifecycle process further ensures that requests are continually evaluated for strategic alignment, resource and capacity planning, and project stage-gates and milestones. By putting rigorous and tested processes in place around the winning ideas, you have the ability to transform those ideas into products and services that deliver real value.
