How is our platform better than competitors?
There are many websites that provide companies with tools for collaboration between employees, with the possible involvement of customers and suppliers, in co-creation of innovative ideas, for doing brainstorming online or simply surveys.
Our platform has many additional features to those of the other websites, which make it unique and that provide companies with an integrated tool that allows companies that use it to have a change also cultural and exceptional performance.
GUARANTEE OF ANONYMITY, CERTIFICATION OF THE BEST
There is the guarantee of the complete anonymity of those who suggest ideas and those who vote for them, to avoid that some are blocked by shyness or psychological subjection to their superiors present in the session, with the risk of being disliked by others or by their own Responsible if they don’t say something that everyone agrees on and this is even more important in the case of a small company.
In this way it is avoided that those who make a proposal voted negatively by others are recognized and can therefore do it freely.
The best and most innovative ideas come from “daring” choices that in most cases are not interesting and are often the object of ridicule, but if you are free to do it in anonymity, something important comes out.
After the vote, it is automatically determined who has dedicated more time, has shown better skills and creativity and is therefore among the best in the Rankings.
He can then download a certificate that allows him to reveal his name, obtaining reputational advantages or possibly small rewards from the company, strongly suggested to generate competition and gamification, thus creating the incentive to involve employees.
PUBLICATION OF A NEED
There is the possibility of publishing a need to develop a product or a service of which the “Need” is felt or to improve a business process, looking for a solution to a practical problem.
With The Best Idea, you can share with a “Group” of users, that you decide, this “Need” and look for someone able to propose his own Project in response to this need.
All these Projects will be voted by the “Group” to choose the best one, obtaining advantages for those who designed it and for those who published the Need!
RANKINGS AND STATISTICS OF VARIOUS TYPES
The Rankings can be consulted with the relative clickable statistics of Projects and complete Business Plans that have obtained a higher average grade, of the most voted Surveys, of the Needs that have had the greatest number of answers with a Project, of the Inventors who have obtained a higher average score, but also of the more careful and better Voters (see next chapter) and of Brainstorming with all the chapters and the steps that compose them.
You can filter by various aspects, including the Category they are associated with (see the list of categories).
VOTE TABLE, VOTER EVALUATION AND VOTE WEIGHT
An innovative system has been introduced, that mentally helps in choosing the grade to be given, using a format with a clickable table with a score from 3 to 10 points for the evaluation of Projects and complete Business Plans, to ensure that the vote is better meditated, avoiding that the vote is given absent-mindedly, without a careful evaluation.
This is also because an evaluation is automatically given to the Voter every time he votes, comparing his vote with that of the other voters of that Project, according to the ability to best represent the majority, who will make an average with the other evaluations he will have taken in past, to obtain a ranking of the best Voters.
The evaluation he obtains is a function of the difference in the grade that he has given compared to the average obtained by that Project, and is obviously greater if the difference is smaller but the resulting value is increased according to how much closer it will be to the extremes of the possible scale (vote 3 and 10).
This system is used to prevent a user from having to vote for a central vote on the possibility scale even if he thinks that the Project deserves a very low or very high vote, thinking about the probability of going closer to the average, in order to allow him to choose according to conscience.
This evaluation is even more important, because a user who has obtained a high score will affect much more for the calculation of the average grade in the following votes of a Project, through a coefficient multiplier of his vote, while the vote of those who have a low rating will be irrelevant.
STATISTICS DIVIDED BY USER CHARACTERISTICS
Who publishes a Project, a Survey, a Business Plan or a Brainstorming, can see in an exclusive way the statistics of his publications divided by characteristics of the Voters, according to the parameters entered in the registry, which are: state of residence, nationality, age range, gender (male or female), level of studies, area of residence and device used for voting (smartphone or desktop / tablet).
MODELS FOR BRAINSTORMING ON-LINE AND IN A MEETING
There is the possibility for the Project Manager, who has the role of facilitator, to prepare all the development Steps planned for a goal in which employees or customers are involved, using, if possible, the Models available, which respond to various business needs, such as Research and development of a new product or the introduction of Lean Management procedures or in general the use of the Design thinking.
After having prepared all the Steps, the Project Manager will progressively start them by involving the intended users, asking for online contributions according to the times available for each person or in a classroom meeting, using the smartphone to publish and immediately vote the contributions given by the users involved.
SURVEY SCORE AUTOMATIC CALCULATION
There is the possibility of assigning a score to each of the various choices foreseen for each answer contained in a Conditional Survey, which is a survey with various questions that allows a question to be followed by another question that depends on from the choice made in the previous question, in a chain of questions.
In this way it is possible to make an automatic evaluation of the set of answers given by the user, assigning an overall or average score to that user.
It can be used to make an examination of a person’s skills or to automatically obtain an average score of the evaluation of the group of users that respond to that survey.
FUNCTIONS INTEGRATION, MODELS’ TIP FROM THE USERS
The platform contains various functions that allow the user to achieve very different goals, integrating them in various ways, with a very similar format of use between the various functions, making learning much easier.
The use of pre-built models helps a lot and the collaboration of users for the suggestion of new models is encouraged, even with prizes.
