What do you like best?
I’ve used IdeaScale twice in different work environments on flagship innovation projects. As the Program Manager, I relied heavily upon the IdeaScale team to help me with successful implementation and I was extremely happy with the result!
What do you dislike?
I have a background in software development so I’m always going to notice opportunities for improvement, but to be honest, the system has come a long way in the last 5 years in particular. I’m a long time user and I would choose IdeaScale again for sure. Excellent value for money.
Recommendations to others considering the product
Go for it, you won’t be disappointed. Best value for money.
What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Trying to deliver innovation programs at scale without a flexible, process driven tool like IdeaScale is impossible.
I always come back to this tool because of the features, I haven’t found anything this good for the price. I especially appreciate how easy it is to get SSO authentication setup and to appoint multiple judging panels and even configure weighted criteria. I haven’t been able to find any other tool that has the same level of customisation in the stage gate design. I really enjoy working with IdeaScale and putting it to the test in new environments with new challenges!
