Pros

Hype Innovation

  • Hype Innovation allows for a full onsite implementation behind a firewall and does not need to communicate to an external server. This is a major advantage for a defense company.
  • Hype Innovation is easily configurable by a systems admin with very limited knowledge of the product.
  • Product Updates are rolled out quarterly and offered to all clients.
  • Hype Innovation has a specific instance of their Hype software platform that is aimed at their clients and improving Hype itself. Feedback from their management is very quick.

    Alternatives Considered

    Hype Innovation

    After evaluating numerous idea management and innovation management platforms, the main reasons we chose Hype Innovation were:
    • On-premises installation (Viima did not allow this);
    • Cost (Viima and IdeaDrop had substantially higher costs for the amount of users we required);
    • Ease of Configuration (Viima was easiest to configure, but IdeaDrop was a challenge.);
    • Customer Service (From initial contact to roll-out was 5 weeks).

    Return on Investment

    Hype Innovation

    • Longstanding issues with products and services have been made visible to the wider company and many solutions have been identified.
    • A common idea management platform has allowed management to gauge the level of employee involvement and cross functional communication.
    • Safe storage and archiving of ideas has enabled the company to keep track of inputs over time and refer back to ideas that were not relevant at the time of generation.
    • The added workload of managing the innovation platform has meant that more money has had to be spent on the individual responsible for the platform.

    IdeaScale

    • Ideascale was launched recently so no concrete ROI yet
    • Supports driving innovation as a discipline internally and externally
