Collaborations specialists, Mindjet, has launched the latest version of its innovation hub software, Spigit Engage.
The release follows the September merger with Spigit in order to combine their idea generation platforms.
Spigit Engage features new ways to work including a personal innovation hub where users can get a single view of all activity, open challenges and trending ideas.
A new activity stream allows users to interact with ideas across company-wide innovation initiatives and a unified inbox collects and displays all private messages, social @mentions and assigned tasks.
Aragon analyst, Jim Lundy, said offerings such as Engage helped enterprises find and develop the best ideas through to execution.
"The personal innovation hub in Spigit Engage helps surface opportunities that are highly relevant for businesses.”
The personal innovation hub has been built to make innovation relevant to each employee, increasing participation in “challenges” and providing a wider net of ideas.
It includes activity streams which surface ideas being submitted across the organisation via proposed challenges.
Participating in discussions, votes, evaluations and reviews are possible with a single click in the stream.
A unified inbox pulls everything together in a single view: private messages, social @mentions and notifications of tasks that are assigned to individuals as part of the business workflow.
Employees can also monitor trending ideas and open challenges in a “challenge carousel”.
Mindjet chief executive, Scott Raskin, said the features were focused on participation.
“Spigit Engage and MindManager are the most powerful product launches in our company’s history and point the way towards a complete business innovation solution that yields superior business results.”
Mindjet is headquartered in San Francisco with offices throughout the US, UK, France, Germany, Japan and Australia.
