In today’s competitive market, the right ideas for innovations, enhancements and cost-savings are more valuable than ever. But creative inspiration alone is not enough – the important thing is to use it profitably.
In many companies, the process of innovation and idea management is inefficient because staff use multiple channels to collect their ideas. They work on ideas with a range of different tools until the company eventually decides to implement or reject the idea – or until the idea just fizzles out due to a lack of attention or oversight. This way of working often leads to resentment and is a waste of valuable time.
An intelligent solution based on a single data pool makes the whole process significantly more efficient. This is where TPG IdeaManagement comes in. Based on mobile Microsoft O365 apps with Power BI and workflows, it’s a turnkey solution that provides a great alternative as it covers the entire idea management process from end to end.
