Pros: Idea drop has a really nicely designed and intuitive interface with several novel features and functionality.

Cons: The main challenge is around the ability to brand or customise the platform for our clients requirements.

Ideadrop is based on a motivated team which considers agile values and provides innovation spirit.

Pros: - Modern and intuitive user interface and user experience.
- Social features facilitate communication around ideas.
- Transparency for everyone in the organisation.
- Accompanying ideas from origination until its implementation.

Cons: Currently it is the performance. Due to the amount of ideas we experience long page loads within the main functionalities. Also there is some space for user interface optimisation.

This is fantastic for engagement with big teams

Pros: ease of use, the algorithms, videos; the support and flexibility and enthusiasm of the team. It is a great package that is easy and fun to use that anyone can access

Cons: sometimes it is not clear when you have posted - so you can end up doing it multiple times. It can take a while to navigate around

A great tool for ideas capture and for driving innovation

Comments: On top of that, Idea Drop is capable of gathering and capturing ideas from anyone from anywhere in the world. This makes it a perfect ideation and innovation management platform for our team and office. With Idea Drop, everyone in our organization can submit ideas anonymously via a cloaking functionality.

Pros: Idea Drop is intuitive, removes hierarchical barriers, and makes it faster to get help and support across the business. Idea Drop allows gathering insight and ideas from across teams, departments and offices globally. It brings our entire business into a central innovation flow, engaging everyone from front-line staff to C-Level execs.

Pros: Great customer support and communication from the IdeaDrop team. Software is simple and easy to use.

Cons: Some of the filtering tools are a bit clumsy, but the team there is working diligently to upgrade them and I forsee some great changes in that department in the near future (bumping up my easy of use and functionality ratings in doing so!)

Overall: Excellent engagement with employees, participation by team members and superb quality of discussions and ideas created as a result of implementation.

Great team and product. Worked hard to engage with us and win our trust.

Pros: The solution is intuitive, well presented and can be picked up easily by users. We are currently in the pilot phase and found that all of our team could very quickly familiarise themselves with IdeaDrop. They were able to contribute ideas and discussion points very quickly.

Cons: Cost of additional Consulting services could be more competitive. We would be keen to engage if the price was lower.

Overall: Ability to gather ideas and opinions from a wide range of our user communities. Being able to 'cloak' ideas means that some of our more reluctant users can contribute without feeling too exposed.

The easiest way to curate, and explore, the best ideas, for any business!

Pros: Easy to use and encourages interaction on ideas that are raised within the company.
It automatically does the job of reviewing and filtering out the best (and most relevant) ideas
It doubles up as a communication tool

Cons: Can sometimes appear to want to do too much i.e. be all things at once. Its key benefit is creating a platform to share and filter ideas - need to be careful it doesn't become a platform for trying to run an entire business

Overall: Lots of new ideas but more importantly , excellent collaboration between employees

Pros: It really is straightforward and even the Luddites on your team will be able to use it from the outset without a lengthy on-boarding process. Our members don't want to receive hundreds of emails so by putting forward challenges and ideas on Idea Drop they're able to access all the information they need without clogging up their inboxes. They can then come back to us with feedback and new ideas which allows for a more collaborative process.

Idea Drop has transformed the way we collect and action ideas across our business

Pros: Fast to onboard team members; very low training costs; highly intuitive design and user experience. The mobile apps are a big plus for us too as a number of our team members are rarely at their desk. Particularly like the status tool, which enables us to align our workflow with ideas and keep everyone in tune with what we're doing with the ideas they share. Cloaking is popular too ¿ enabling staff to hide their identities when sharing ideas.

Cons: Would love to see wider integrations with other elements of our tech stack such as Slack and Office 365.

Overall: We quickly saw the benefits of Idea Drop as teams throughout the business began collaborating, communicating and sharing ideas in ways we hadn't seen before with our existing tech stack. Idea Drop's fresh interface and intuitive social features made it quick to onboard our teams and we now rely on it to capture, enrich and action new ideas across the business on an ongoing basis.
