Great innovation matching platform

We were able to set up a new service for our customers in a relatively short time, leveraging a lot of expertise and ready-made solutions. This helped us with customer engagement as well as market positioning as innovators.

Pros

Lots of custom support from the team, allowing us to build a B2B innovation matching system for our SME customers. Lightweight interface and as-a-service provisioning make this relatively easy to manage even within the context of large, cumbersome IT departments such as ours.

Cons

We could have used more support in the design phase, to help us focus on priority features and a long-term roadmap. Instead, we tried to do too much from the start, ultimately limiting the impact and usefulness of our service. Note: this is a client-side problem, but the supplier could help mitigate it with dedicated methodologies.

Reasons for Choosing SkipsoLabs

Proximity, flexibility, startup attitude, price.

A fantastic product supporting cleantech innovation

Using the SkipsoLabs innovation ecosystem platform, we have been able to launch, manage, and grow a successful community around cleantech innovation in California and globally, with more than 1,700 members and 500 companies in our first year of operation. With this platform, we offer a curated selection of cleantech funding opportunities, events, company profiles, resources, and more to our community. SkipsoLabs has been a true partner along the way, tailoring their unique ecosystem solution to our needs. They are a great team to work with.

Pros

SkipsoLabs' software is user friendly and includes a suite of features that fits our project requirements very well. We primarily leverage the SkipsoLabs innovation ecosystem platform for the cleantech community my firm manages. The searchable, customizable directories of both curated and user-generated content are a pleasure to work with.

Cons

My project required a number of dynamic relationships between different entities on the SkipsoLabs ecosystem platform (e.g., individual members associated with companies, companies associated with other companies, etc.), but there are some constraints around the number and type of dynamic relationships that are currently available without customization. However, the SkipsoLabs team is extremely willing to develop custom features and share improvements to their product among the client base once developed.

Skipso - Review

My experience with Skipso dramatically improved when [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] began working with us, she's been quick to answer any questions I have and has been very helpful with explaining how things work.

Pros

Both front and backend functionality in one platform including a public gallery, homepage setup, resource sharing, and information sharing on the FE and a submission portal, judging portal, payment feature on the BE.

Cons

The backend is not intuitive/user friendly. Data doesn't always seem accurate. Regularly need assistance.

Skipso is a great Challenge Management Product

Overall the experience with SkipsoLabs is great. Their customer service is responsive and open.

Pros

The features available through the software are a big reason why we initially chose and continue to choose Skipso to run our challenges. The ability to match startups to mentors within the system is important to us.

Cons

There is no user manual. Since we run annually there are many users that only use the software for a short period of time each year. We have to retrain people each year.

Our go-to for an integrated innovation platform

The relationships we have built up across the SkipsoLabs team has far exceeded my expectations - it goes well beyond a transactional relationship and is much more of a partnership to ensure our program needs are met. Whether its basic tech troubleshooting or bigger picture strategic discussions, the team are very willing and open to assist us build our innovation ecosystem and ensure we are optimising the use of our SkipsoLabs platform.

Pros

Having an integrated platform that has allowed us to run our open application & assessment process as well as provide an online tool to support the delivery of our tech acceleration program and build our innovation community. The personalised support throughout our platform build has been exceptional.

Cons

We've found a small number of functionality issues as we've gone through the stand-up process, however the team have taken these onboard and resolved them as quickly as possible.

Reasons for Choosing SkipsoLabs

We considered multiple other platforms but none of them provided the full suite of functionality that we were looking for - e.g. separately they provided certain elements such as open call & assessment, but not the other elements.

Great Tool for a niche market

Pros

The personalization of the different tenants streams. This provides great value to our customers and a good overall management for us.
