User friendly tool to help and speed up cooperation

Viima enabled us an inspiring start for cooperation between three large organisations and helped in involving over 1000 staff members to co-develop together.

Pros

This tool enabled us a smooth start for close cooperation between three organisations. Easy to use and inspiring platform. Users are surprised by the nice graphics which differ from many other platforms. Main functionalities are well chosen and an overview of all topics is easy to get. Recent activities are easy to follow. Simple but powerful tool. Excellent customer service!

Cons

Some functionalities could be still developed e.g. drag and drop functionality would have been nice at some phases and functionality where the users "apply" to a certain idea could be located in the main view of an idea.

User friendly and easy to set up

It has been a very good experience so far, I've got a great support from Viima and have managed to make our Innovation Hub look very close to what we had envisaged.

Pros

It is easy to set up and easy to use both from an admin and from an user perspective. It is very clean and pleasant to look at and it's very intuitive. Adding ideas is quite easy and it has all the features we were looking for in terms of filtering ideas and engaging with ideas.

Cons

Some features can't really be customised. An example is the Impact assessment of the idea, which contains monetary/qualitative metrics only. The good thing is that due to Viima's good customer service, they always help us find a way around what doesn't suit us.

Reasons for Choosing Viima

I found it more user friendly and cleaner, with the exact features that I was looking for.

Thank you for the review Carla! Glad to hear that you've enjoyed using Viima. We're always looking to improve Viima's ability to adapt to different customer needs, and customization of our features is a big priority for us. May we ask what kind of impact assessments you are looking for so that we can add them to the tool?

Easy functions, transparent innovation, easy to integrate, great people

More transparency in our ideation process and a fun way to suggest new ideas

Pros

Great idea to make innovating transparent and accessible for all. The UI is easy to use based on intuition and most features (idea process , categories etc) are defined by the user. The software is also easily integrated into Sharepoint and other sites / tools already in use in the company. This makes it easy to remind people Viima

Cons

Some of the features could still be developed, for example different colors for ideas in different phases of the ideation process. Right now they are all the same color. Also some reminders could be sent automatically, not just via email but also as text messages or as popups when people open Sharepoint (where we have integrated Viima). It is hard to get people to update the ideas, since the ideas are not designed to be updated and followed up in Viima. Maybe an integration with Trello, or a similar app would be ideal?

Thanks for the review and the feedback Helena! It is actually already possible to set the ideas on your Viima board to change color based on the phase of the ideation process that they're in. We're also always improving our notifications and will continue to add more channels for receiving these, the latest of which is Yammer. You are also correct in that Viima is not designed to be the place where information is stored as ideas are being implemented. Each company has specific requirements related to their business so while Viima is great for the ideation and concept phases of development, we always recommend using the project management tools you already have for that purpose. This way you'll get the best of both worlds! We're going to add integrations to the most common ones, such as Trello and JIRA, in the near future to provide you with a seamless flow of information so stay tuned! We'll be in touch shortly to make sure you're able to get the most out of Viima!

Great tool to scale innovation

Very good, if defently outperforms managing ideas and innovation using spreadsheets, company developed software or trying to adapt some other tool for this purpose

Pros

Defenetly the main characteristic is being really easy to use. With over 200 users in my division none experience trouble besides logging in for the first time. After a little step-by-step procedure they could start using the tool and collaborating without any problems.

Cons

Could have more customized fields to classify ideas, but it was something we could get around using hashtags

Reasons for Choosing Viima

Seamed to be a more fit for purpose tool and more friendly interface

Thank you for the review and kind words Italo! We've actually just released an update with new types of custom fields and improvements to the way hashtags work and will continue to develop the software going forward!

I've been really satisfied with Viima's intuitive and fun tool as well as with the proactive support

Great ideation tool for both the Company and for the customer relations outside the Company.

Pros

Viima's visual user interface has helped us to motivate our employees to participate into giving their own ideas and developing the ideas of others. The tool is so simple to use that none of our employees have needed user training even though we have people from various different background. Viima can also be used for several different purposes simultaneously (e.g. continuous ideation, idea challenges, developing the organizational culture etc.) and setting it up for new use cases is relly fast. In Viima I can quickly see which ideas are the most important and what the status of the ideation funnel at any given moment. Viima's support has been very helpful on occasions that I've needed it, but mostly we've been able to use the software without any outside help.

Cons

Viima can send out notification emails to users on relevant occasions and these emails have only been available in English. But as I've understood, they are soon releasing support for customizing the emails into other languages as well (Finnish in our case).

Thank you very much for the review, we really appreciate the feedback! I'm glad to confirm that our latest update that was actually just released contains the support for fully customisable notification emails which allows our customers to freely write the content of the emails (in any language you wish to).
