Wilmington, Delaware (PRWEB) August 22, 2012
Fort Hill Company is pleased to announce the release of its breakthrough new product, We Achieve, a crowdsourcing tool that helps collect and create engagement around the sharing of actions, insights, and achievements. It's been referred to as “Appreciative Inquiry meets Social Networking" and can be used to demonstrate results and share information within an organization.
Designed to work with any initiative, We Achieve provides administrators with the ability to write a compelling question and then email this question to a list of participants for their response. Participants have the ability to simply reply to the email with their answers or click on a link to respond online.
Unlike traditional online surveys, We Achieve not only provides an efficient way to collect input, but more importantly, engages the respondents in a process that is easy and enjoyable. After We Achieve begins receiving responses, the randomly selected answers are emailed back to the participants in a paired fashion where they can vote on responses to indicate which answers they find most compelling. This is a transformative step from traditional data collection because We Achieve is able to harness the wisdom of the crowd to prioritize the most compelling answers. The by-product of this rating step is the creation of informal organizational learning (on the job - not classroom based) as participants learn from each others’ answers. To conclude the process, a transparent and prioritized list of answers is generated that the organization can then leverage to demonstrate success and/or create further organizational learning.
Fort Hill created We Achieve to address the fact that most surveys are less than ideal for collecting data and demonstrating organizational results. Surveys are time consuming to build and more importantly, receive poor response rates because those responding rarely receive any personal benefit from doing so. After conducting 6 months of formalized market research, the initial version of We Achieve was launched in May at the ASTD International Conference and Exposition. Over 700 attendees used We Achieve to share and crowdsource their most compelling insights from the conference.
Since the ASTD launch, Fort Hill has continued to refine We Achieve, adjusting the rating algorithm while creating additional administrative functionality and mobile rendering pages. Fort Hill has also deployed a “Freemium” pricing model where organizations are able to use We Achieve with groups of up to 50 individuals at no cost. To date, over 300 accounts have been created. Fort Hill expects to attract customers who are dissatisfied with both the quality of data and lack of engagement from online survey use.
