In today's competitive business environment, innovation is critical to the success of almost any business or organization
Reston, VA (Vocus) May 21, 2010
CorasWorks Corporation, a leading provider of business applications and solutions for Microsoft SharePoint, today announced the availability of its Idea Management Solution for SharePoint 2010.
The Idea Management solution is designed to give organizations a way to harness the creativity and innovation of its workforce by soliciting ideas on anything from new products, to process improvements, to solutions to common business problems. It provides a rich web experience for idea capture and collaboration, along with structured review, evaluation and approval. With the solution, organizations can manage the full lifecycle of idea management -- from idea inception all the way through development and implementation. The solution can also be extended to engage with an organization’s external workforce and the public.
“In today’s competitive business environment, innovation is critical to the success of almost any business or organization,” said William Rogers, Chief Architect at CorasWorks. “More and more organizations are coming to us for an idea management solution on SharePoint. SharePoint—especially SharePoint 2010—is a natural platform for idea management, and our software allows us to deliver a complete end-to-end solution that adds immediate value to any organization.”
Key features of the solution include:
- Idea Community Portal for quick and easy access
- Individual Idea Communities for each specific idea category
- Campaigns and challenges so you can solicit input on specific topics
- Idea Portfolio Management to manage and evaluate all ideas
In addition to these key features, organizations can choose to extend Idea Management to include a formal, structured Project Portfolio Management (PPM) component. The CorasWorks PPM application can be used in conjunction with Idea Management to provide a structured environment for developing and implementing ideas that are an output of the Idea Management solution.
“Idea Management is powerful and can result in tremendous cost savings for an organization,” said Rogers. “However, to realize the full benefit of the idea, you have to further develop and implement the idea and make it a part of your organization. That’s where PPM comes into play. It’s a natural extension to any Idea Management solution.”
The CorasWorks Idea Management Solution for Microsoft SharePoint is available for both SharePoint 2010 and SharePoint 2007. For more information, visit http://www.corasworks.net/solutions/ideamanagement.html .
