Telligent, a leader in social community software, today announced that it has entered into an exclusive arrangement to deliver and support an ideation and innovation management solution for customers called InnovationCast™.
Innovation is a growing priority for many companies. According to the Boston Consulting Senior Executive Innovation Survey, approximately three-fourths of survey respondents stated that innovation is one of their company’s top three priorities. Companies are putting their closed innovation mentality and methods in the rear-view mirror and moving forward with more collaborative methods that deliver value faster back to the organization.

It is the only ideation and innovation management solution built on top of an enterprise-grade platform for social collaboration. It takes ideation to the next level, not only with social media applications, but also with a full project management toolset to transform an organization’s ideas into business value, all with an award-winning user experience.
Available InnovationCast options include:
- InnovationCast Ideation – supports ideation with an organization’s customers, partners and employees by stimulating ideas and nurturing them; it’s perfect for getting started and enabling open engagements across organizational boundaries.
- InnovationCast Suite – supports both the front-end and back-end of ideation and innovation management; it builds on top of InnovationCast Ideation with tools to devise tangible opportunities to innovate and to manage projects in order to transform ideas into action.
