    Pros

    It is easy to use as an end user and is similar to twitter. You can post ideas in short words and you don't have to fill a lot of info to submit idea, which is a plus for the user as it will not turn them away from dropping new ideas to the portal.

    Cons

    Limited reporting features but this being a niche company, I'm sure they will add more reporting capabilities.

    Great way for anyone in the company to share thoughts, new ideas and to propose initiatives. Awesome!

    Cons

    It would be good if it could be integrated in one of the software we already use, instead of being a separate app.

    Idea drop has a really nicely designed and intuitive interface with several novel features and functionality.

    - Modern and intuitive user interface and user experience.
    - Social features facilitate communication around ideas.
    - Transparency for everyone in the organisation.
    - Accompanying ideas from origination until its implementation.

    Cons

    Currently it is the performance. Due to the amount of ideas we experience long page loads within the main functionalities. Also there is some space for user interface optimisation.

    Could be more intuitive in user interface - minor point
    Software is web based so is not loaded as part of daily pc start-up - needs positive action to engage

    On top of that, Idea Drop is capable of gathering and capturing ideas from anyone from anywhere in the world. This makes it a perfect ideation and innovation management platform for our team and office. With Idea Drop, everyone in our organization can submit ideas anonymously via a cloaking functionality.

Idea Drop allows gathering insight and ideas from across teams, departments and offices globally. It brings our entire business into a central innovation flow, engaging everyone from front-line staff to C-Level execs.

    Excellent engagement with employees, participation by team members and superb quality of discussions and ideas created as a result of implementation.

    Pros

    Great customer support and communication from the IdeaDrop team. Software is simple and easy to use.

    Cons

    Some of the filtering tools are a bit clumsy, but the team there is working diligently to upgrade them and I forsee some great changes in that department in the near future (bumping up my easy of use and functionality ratings in doing so!)

    Ability to gather ideas and opinions from a wide range of our user communities. Being able to 'cloak' ideas means that some of our more reluctant users can contribute without feeling too exposed.

    Pros

    The solution is intuitive, well presented and can be picked up easily by users. We are currently in the pilot phase and found that all of our team could very quickly familiarise themselves with IdeaDrop. They were able to contribute ideas and discussion points very quickly.

    Cons

    Cost of additional Consulting services could be more competitive. We would be keen to engage if the price was lower.

    Lots of new ideas but more importantly , excellent collaboration between employees

    Pros

    Easy to use and encourages interaction on ideas that are raised within the company.
    It automatically does the job of reviewing and filtering out the best (and most relevant) ideas
    It doubles up as a communication tool

    Cons

    Can sometimes appear to want to do too much i.e. be all things at once. Its key benefit is creating a platform to share and filter ideas - need to be careful it doesn't become a platform for trying to run an entire business

    Pros

    It really is straightforward and even the Luddites on your team will be able to use it from the outset without a lengthy on-boarding process. Our members don't want to receive hundreds of emails so by putting forward challenges and ideas on Idea Drop they're able to access all the information they need without clogging up their inboxes. They can then come back to us with feedback and new ideas which allows for a more collaborative process.

    We quickly saw the benefits of Idea Drop as teams throughout the business began collaborating, communicating and sharing ideas in ways we hadn't seen before with our existing tech stack. Idea Drop's fresh interface and intuitive social features made it quick to onboard our teams and we now rely on it to capture, enrich and action new ideas across the business on an ongoing basis.

    Pros

    Fast to onboard team members; very low training costs; highly intuitive design and user experience. The mobile apps are a big plus for us too as a number of our team members are rarely at their desk. Particularly like the status tool, which enables us to align our workflow with ideas and keep everyone in tune with what we're doing with the ideas they share. Cloaking is popular too ¿ enabling staff to hide their identities when sharing ideas.

    Cons

    Would love to see wider integrations with other elements of our tech stack such as Slack and Office 365.
