Overall Satisfaction with Spigit

We use Spigit in various departments but for a limited amount of users (200 registered users). These are individuals throughout various functional areas that act as spokespeople for their respective areas on new product concepts. Our main goal with the Spigit software is to generate new product concept ideas that we can bring into our New Product Innovation (NPI) process. We are using it as an idea generator, idea storage and prioritization tool.
  • Spigit is very good at walking you through the initial process, giving you their professional advice as the expert in this field while still letting the tool work the way you want - what's best for your organization's individual needs.
  • Spigit provides a lot of flexibility around how to use the tool, whether you're launching to every person in your company or whether you're focusing the tool in one particular area, such as new product ideas, process improvement ideas, etc.
  • The guided launch process is very structured and we had some intnerla issues preventing us from following it exactly. There was some trouble getting this worked out, however, in the end, the Spigit team helped brainstorm ways to accomplish both our goals and conserve their team's time and resources.
  • Our sight has not been in existence long enough to have these results, however, we expect to see increased employee engagement in the innovation process, giving them a 360 degree view of what's happening with their ideas. We also expect to see an increase in quality of ideas being submitted to our New Product Innovation process.
Spigit is a much more user friendly site than any of the SharePoint products we've tried. Our SharePoint initiatives have failed in the past and I believe it had to do with the look and feel of the site as well as the lack of easy-to-use functionality. Spigit provides a first class platform that your users will want to access over and over.
I think Spigit is geared towards opening up the site to your entire organization and have open collaboration. Our goals were slightly different and we wanted to start by only allowing 200 users in the company to view and contribute to the site. Because our goals were different than their standard client, there was some struggle around aligning the way they normally do things with our goals, however, they were able to adapt and still make a successful innovation site that worked for us.
