Jive Software has extended the innovation capabilities of Jive Social Business Software to include ideation. Companies who use Jive today inherently get a lift in innovation because of the solution's ability to connect people, ideas, and information without regard to time zones, geographies, or organizational hierarchies. The addition of of robust ideation capabilities to Jive accelerates its ability to drive true business value by adding more muscle to capturing, organizing, and prioritizing ideas - the front end of the innovation process.

Jive Ideation accelerates ideation by establishing a culture of innovation that:

  • Encourages participants to share ideas broadly across functional and geographic silos
  • Allows participants to comment and collaborate on ideas
  • Allows participants to vote up or down on ideas
  • Allows participants to follow specific ideation threads and categories
  • Ranks ideas to make sure the best bubble up to the top
  • Recognizes and rewards top innovators and collaborators

For a brief walk-thru of this module, refer to Ideation - overview of Jive's new module.
