co_ideas, leverage the innovative potential!

  • Would you like to leverage your creative potential, stimulate innovations and eliminate quality risks in the organisation systematically?

  • Can you report the proposals by patentability, products, time span, business partner, department or cost centre at any time?
  • Should awards, incentives and recognitions motivate the workforce?
  • Can you keep track of the cost/benefit ratio until implementation of accepted proposals?

  • Should multiple entrees of similar proposals be detected?

  • Is there a facility (lottery) to recognize also small contributions?

  • Can colleagues cooperate, develop and discuss common ideas?

Simple capture of proposals

All ideas and proposals can be entered and registered through a modern web application. Colleagues can add their contributions until the idea has matured to registration stage. The back office can then process and evaluate the proposals centrally. Status change, reminder and escalation notifications for overdue tasks are sent automatically. An independent controlling function can evaluate the proposal and its implementation financially. The logging engine keeps an audit trail of all workflow steps and changes. Besides an evaluation of costs and benefits the supervisor can relate a proposal to the dimensions business partner, location, product, department, profit centre, legal entity or self-defined key words. The proposer is kept up to date online automatically by the application – of course whenever his proposal is awarded he receives a special notification.

Routine workflow and distribution

All participants are notified about new or pending tasks and status changes automatically by the application. The system supports a segregation of duties to avoid fraud or misuse proactively. Quality management has an overview over relevant proposals and can generate adequate measures to overcome systematic weaknesses.

The integration of Microsoft Office products with all their degrees of freedom supports the corporate design and branding policy. Traceability, accessibility around the globe with rapid response times are the backbone of a reliable idea management system.
