GO! for Collaborative Innovation on Demand
Innovation platforms that not only help to collect ideas but also to enrich, review and select the most promising ones are no longer only subject to large organizations. HYPE GO! is an on-demand, campaign-driven software for collaborative innovation that gets you started with your innovation initiative right away.
Collecting ideas for finding innovative solutions to a wide range of business needs is a growing demand in companies of different sizes and industries. The market provides a range of platforms to support enterprise innovation management. Many of these tools help organizations to bring together thousands of contributors in an online space, whether for enterprise-wide innovation or even beyond in open innovation programs. These platforms are typically designed to meet complex corporate IT requirements, and are able to mirror sophisticated workflows for end-to-end processes.
Smaller organizations, single departments or teams, prioritize differently when it comes to requirements for deploying business software.
Smaller organizations, single departments or teams, prioritize differently when it comes to requirements for deploying business software. Quick setup, ease-of-use and a manageable price tag are of most importance here. HYPE GO! is the new product offering from HYPE Innovation that is specially targeted at those customer groups and designed to meet these requirements, yet offering a complete, campaign-driven collaborative innovation platform.
