Spigit Boosts Game Mechanics and Idea Development

New Features Make Employee and Customer Innovation More Social, Streamlined and Fun (February 23, 2012)

PLEASANTON, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/23/12 -- Spigit, the leader in social innovation software and services, today announced new, user-driven upgrades designed to capture the potential of people where and how they work in its SpigitEngage 3.3.1 release. With SpigitEngage 3.3.1, users will be able to broaden their innovation dialogue by exposing Spigit activities into the Yammer™ activity stream and have increased functionality in visualizing and coordinating ideas. Spigit's latest release enables employees and stakeholders to connect and collaborate more effectively, accelerating their organization's innovation outcomes.

"Providing an engaging environment for social innovation is at the core of Spigit's offerings," said Lisa Purvis, chief science officer, Spigit. "With the latest SpigitEngage release, we have further augmented the capabilities for social connections and progress feedback, crucial to the visibility and action on ideas."

As a part of its latest SpigitEngage release, Spigit enhanced enterprise innovation with features including:

  • Microblogging Connections - SpigitEngage can now publish participants' activity directly into the Yammer™ activity stream, enabling broader exposure of the innovation dialogue, enhancing engagement and cross-company communication.
  • Idea Visualization - The interactive idea stages view within SpigitEngage visually relays relevant information about ideas and their development, enabling a quick comparative overview of the idea and measure of key metrics. This feature in turn creates an interactive 'progression' game mechanic whereby users can see their ideas, internalize how they are faring against others and deduce the next steps in advancing their ideas.
  • Idea Coordinator Role - A new idea-specific role within SpigitEngage gives idea submitters an internal partner with the power to help advance the idea forward in an organization, enhancing the velocity with which ideas turn into results.
  • Enhanced Reporting - Enriched ad-hoc reporting improves the user experience, enabling easier and more effective data extraction and reporting.

With the release of SpigitEngage 3.3.1, Spigit continues to provide businesses with the tools they need to source ideas and advance them forward, and to achieve the innovations that will keep them competitive. For more information, visit www.spigit.com.
