Spigit Launches IdeaSpigit: The First Customer-Powered Productivity Platform for the Enterprise

    Spigit combines business intelligence with crowdsourcing to help decision
    makers separate the signal from the noise

    PLEASANTON, Calif., March 19 /CNW/ -- The rise of social networking has
created whole new opportunities for enterprises to engage their customers and
generate new ideas, often leaving decision makers with more choices than
answers. Today spigit, the leader in social productivity software for
enterprise innovation, introduces IdeaSpigit, the only solution that
quantitatively analyzes customer feedback and uses automated idea graduation
to help decision-makers quickly and automatically market-test new initiatives.
    With IdeaSpigit, companies can engage their customers, quantify and
market-test ideas and immediately innovate based upon those generated ideas.
Spigit's IdeaSpigit builds communities that feature:

    -- RepUrank(TM) - Social analytics engine that pinpoints the smartest,
       most qualified and influential users, not just the most popular users;
    -- IdeaRank(TM) - This metric analyzes dozens of interaction types to
       indicate the probability of an idea's success;
    -- Graduation System - An automated idea graduation system that allows
       companies to customize and decide how ideas should progress through the
       platform, ensuring organizational buy-in and that the right ideas reach
       the right decision-makers at the right time;
    -- Social Networking - Allows all your customers to participate in the
       process of innovation; and
    -- Incentives and Rewards - Currency, contests, trading, marketplaces and
       leaderboards are built into the spigit engine to provide incentives for
       high-quality participation.
    "The Digg model of crowdsourcing by simple popular voting does not
translate to the enterprise. The most popular ideas are not necessarily the
most productive. Unlike other products that rely solely on popularity,
IdeaSpigit's advanced social analytics provide substance to the conversation,
distinguish the signal from the noise and ultimately drive actionable business
decisions," said Paul Pluschkell, CEO and founder of spigit. "IdeaSpigit
finally gives companies a way not only to capture everyday customer
conversations, but also quantitatively and automatically identify real
innovations that will fuel business growth."
