Overall Satisfaction with Bubble Innovator

Bubble Innovator is being used across our organizations as a single "source of truth" for new product development, program/project descriptions, financial impact, status and stage gate milestone progress. It is further being adapted to be used for the same purpose for research programs and clinical studies.
The Bubble Innovator product solves the problem of multiple sources of truth floating through your organization regarding the status of any program/project at any point in time. It also reduces the multiple demands from different quarters of an "update" since you can point everyone to Bubble Innovator as that "single source of truth" for the new product development (NPD) pipeline.
  • The Bubble Innovator team is particularly good at listening and seeking to understand your specific requirements and needs to make sure the outcome of the product meets those needs.
  • The Bubble Innovator product is fast, efficient and available and accessible from anywhere.
  • The Bubble Innovator product gives you layered levels of logic associated with your programs so you can decide what rolls up with what or not as desired to suit the business needs.
  • Bubble Innovator is still working out the best logic to be used for collections of projects that are part of a program. It is not a project management software platform but must still manage/show dependencies appropriately.
  • Sometimes it is difficult to capture the right information for the right report. Note that a company's constantly changing needs for reports becomes Bubble Innovator's nightmare to keep abreast of. Bubble Innovator has introduced a custom report generator for their customers so you have more personal control over creating the reports you want.
  • Improves the efficiency of your organization because everyone knows that the single source of truth for your programs is located in one place.
  • Drives consistency within the organization, especially a large one. Everyone speaking a common language is paramount to efficiency and understanding.
We tried several systems before we went with Bubble Innovator - the key difference was that all the other systems were overly complex trying to do so many things that you just got lost in the processes they had created. Innovator seeks to stay simple and straightforward to use and implement in your organization.
