Innovation Driver

5.0 4 years ago

Comments: Collecting ideas to create new product and services or to optimize business processes was spread all over the company and its subsidiaries. Trying to create an innovation process, never came to an end, until we evaluated software for this purpose.
Qmarkets Ideate allowed to centralize the innovation management very easy.

Pros:

We like the predefined workflows and the transparency of the overall process very much. Configuration is easy and we can provide a great usability to all our employees. The support is excellent!

Cons:

We would like more campaign related flexibility in term defining forms. The translation tool could be much better. Auto translation is nice, but not 100% correctly. Qmarkets should design an easy to use overall reporting tool, because not all of our reporting needs are met.

Qmarkets Idea Management- more important than ever to enable virtual collaboration

5.0 4 years ago

Comments: Qmarkets, through the support engineer they provide to us, is a rare vendor. 1) At the start-- They remain committed to helping you to realize the abilities of the software as your innovative culture grows along with it (or, grows INTO it!). Some of the features in their software (such as reporting and analytics) give you ideas of how the software can give your management insights about roadblocks to innovation, for example. 2) During your use-- Qmarkets does not let you down when trouble happens. If something happens you did not intend in the course of you using the software, Qmarkets engages quickly to help you to get things back to normal. 3) Future needs-- Qmarkets has a site where you can upload *your* ideas for features you would like to see in future releases in a specific, way-- inviting their other client companies to "vote up" your request. Qmarkets likes to invite customers to share best practices and will make time to give you previews about where future releases will provide.

Pros:

You don't have to have your innovation strategy completely thought-out before you can get immediate benefits from Qmarkets Idea Management. In face, the software helps you to powerfully engage collaboration among stakeholders and experts in growing a culture of innovation in your company. In this time of pandemic, with much of our engineering staff being a virtual workforce, I am glad we have this product to enable aggressive virtual collaboration-- including running campaigns for mitigating the effects of COVID-19 beyond Ford Motor Company to the general public.

Cons:

This is not a "con," more of an advisory that the software enables top-down and bottom-up engagement of vision (from the top) and needs/opportunities (from the bottom). It would be a palliative to expect Qmarkets software to create innovation-- it is a powerful tool for the implementation of a strategy for enabling innovation.

Well crafted Idea Management Software for a competitive price

3.0 3 years ago

Comments: Qmarkets Idea Management helped us to cement innovation management as one of esolva's main pillars. The regular campaigns engage our staff and help foster a community.

Pros:

The software offers a high level aus automation which makes it much easier for campaign managers to do their job. Old ideas can easily be found again and new ideas are automatically compared to old ones which is a very convenient feature.

Cons:

From a management point of view it's not always obvious what the implications of some actions are. A better documentation for campaign managers would already go a long way. Lot's of features are there but a bit hidden.

Great platform and superb customer support

5.0 last year

Pros:

As administrator I like the amount of customization available in the platform. It is natural that the more customization, the more there is to learn about the platform but once you know what you need to, it supercharges what you can achieve through it. Our customer success manager is available to show us how to do something and share best practice. Having worked with and implemented several idea management platforms, this is my best experience to date. Integration was seamless with no issues. Great product.

Cons:

It is hard to point our anything that is missing at this price point. It is also too early on to say what might be missing - having run several campaigns already we have not identified any limitations and QMarkets is always keen to help or develop solutions to any issues or ideas we have.

Alternatives Considered: IdeaScale, Viima, Braineet Crowdsourcing and ITONICS

Reasons for Switching to Qmarkets: QMarkets response to our RFP was clear, detailed and gave us confidence in how the 'ever after' would work between us. They were flexible in how the platform could be set up and it was clear to us that customer success was at the heart of the value proposition.
