Ideation and Innovation process made easy

The business relationship with Wazoku is one of the best experiences I have had in my entire professional career. The people and the management team are very committed. Its Onboarding team ensures a smooth introduction. The support of the ongoing process by the Customer Success team helps in every situation. Their task is to support users in achieving their objectives. We have always received useful and easy-to-implement information, tailored to the respective inquiry. What distinguishes Wazoku is the unrestrained will to bring success to the customer and get the most out of using the platform.

Pros

Idea Spotlight is well thought out from start to finish. The software offers me a multitude of different possibilities and provides all options to map our innovation management processes individually and strategically. In this way, we can design the development process, the evaluation and the implementation of ideas according to the respective task or goal. The possibilities to follow the actions on the platform via the built-in analysis tools are excellent. This gives us a clear picture of our innovation plans and the achievement of our goals.

Cons

What I would have wished for in the past was a mobile way to use it. This could significantly improve the applications possibilities and efficiency. As I've heard, an app for mobile devices is about to be introduced. This will significantly increase the benefits even more.

Great customer support and ease of use

Pros

Idea Spotlight allows us to present our ideas at any time and for everyone to see. This makes colleagues feel motivated and enthusiastic to share their ideas. With Idea Spotlight, no ideas are lost and we get the opportunity to implement great business ideas.

Cons

Little things that we noticed during use were corrected directly by the support. We have not noticed anything really negative so far.

Great support from the Wazoku client team for this evolving product

The product has capabilities beyond our current scope which would appeal to organisations with more universal online access. The product was lumpier at the start than it is now and the people at Wazoku actively respond to customer input and requirements. Idea Spotlight is no panacea but has opened up a channel for us that enables effective capture of the creative input from employees, tracking of progress, allocating ownership, maintaining the loop, and drawing projects and those involved with them to their conclusion.
