LOOKING FOR SUGGESTIONS FROM COLLEAGUES OR CUSTOMERS, OR DO YOU WANT TO CONSULT THEM AND CHOOSE , ALSO IN SMART WORKING?
Employees and customers are the best consultants for the improvement of business processes, being an integral part of it and living them in person. However, they are often not or don’t feel involved.
Most employees and customers don’t participate in innovation with suggestions, because they have no incentive to do so and indeed fear they are disliked by others or by their manager if they expose ideas or proposals not openly shared by others.
Even, those few who come to know these suggestions, often do not expose themselves with a judgment, for the same reason.
There is often the need to hold meetings in Smart Working to avoid both the risk of contamination in flu periods (in particular coronavirus) and the time and expense of transferring colleagues and customers who work away from the offices.
The-best-idea.com allows users to highlight business problems to stimulate the workforce to suggest ideas and communicate possible solutions, in addition to suggestions on their own initiative.
It guarantees complete anonymity, both for those who suggest ideas and those who judge them, while at the same time spreading new stimuli, and encourages involvement and comparison among colleagues and customers, thanks to the vote of the best ideas!
It allows you to reward and value both the best “inventors” and the voters who commit themselves the most, being able to reveal themselves and prove to be their own only if they are winners.
It allows you to consult a Group of colleagues or customers, to whom you can ask for proposals on a topic to obtain indications and orientation on choices.
HOW THE-BEST-IDEA.COM WORKS
One or more employees can anonymously publish on the platform a “Challenge“, a “Request” for Ideas concerning a problem for which they have found a “Need” and look for someone within the company who can solve the problem posed by proposing their own idea through a “Flash“, developed in a simple and rapid way, or a “Project“, which serves to provide an idea that has already been fully analyzed.
It is possible to share an own improvement “Project” with the other employees, publishing it directly on the platform anonymously, integrating it with support files or videos if necessary, much more than what can be done with an “Suggestion box“.
All Projects or Flashes can be voted by the “Group” of employees involved in order to let them choose the best Projects or the best Flashes (and indirectly the best Inventors) in an impartial manner.
The right weight is given to the experience! Employees who are the best Voters in the past will have a greater weight for the calculation of the average grade.
The entrepreneur can choose whether to involve a “Group” of its customers in the proposition or even in the evaluation of solutions or in the development of new products / projects.
Quality, interest and involvement of the participants will be constantly monitored thanks to the “Ranking” function.
Any user can organize and manage meetings in Smart Working, consulting a Group of colleagues or customers, to whom he can ask for proposals on a topic to obtain indications and orientation on choices through the Challenge-Request-Need function, all anonymously, possibly rewarding the best in the ranking of the proposals made, being able to extend the evaluation later to other colleagues or customers.
