What do you like best?
It's an experienced team, easy platform and process. For organizations that don't have a big innovation team, InnoCentive becomes an easy way to explore Open Innovation in a comfortable and well tested environment. We made a lot of progress in very little time, and were repeat customers every year after we signed up.
What do you dislike?
I can't think of anything that I disliked about the InnoCentive experience.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
One of the most important benefits was to involve a community of individual solvers in a world where institutions work with other organizations (consultants, for example), and how individuals not affiliated with organizations in a given field can provide a totally different perspective.
