Many of our customers also use the idea management software for other purposes:

  • For example, Innolytics® idea innovation software is used as an internal communication channel to communicate news and project statuses within teams, departments and companies, much like the News Feed of a social network.

  • Other customers use the blog function to introduce an internal knowledge management system. Employees use blog posts and internal videos to show how they master situations from their everyday lives. For example, you can make a special booking in the cash register, maintain a device or conduct sales calls. The possibility to record, upload, keyword and write short text explanations via the mobile website and the apps of Innolytics® Ideas videos is especially helpful here.

  • The user administration of the Innolytics® idea management software is used by some of our customers as a kind of internal employee directory. We have designed Innolytics® Ideas in such a way that you can use the tool in the best possible and most flexible way for you. We would be pleased to inform you about this in a personal conversation.
