ENGLEWOOD, Colo., Aug. 16, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ —

InnovationDirector is an easy to use, comprehensive, full life-cycle solution that helps companies harness the creativity embodied in the people that know their business the best, their employees. It gives companies a competitive advantage by giving them a repeatable, sustainable tool and process to inspire, capture and convert ideas to new and or better products and services. More than a crowd-sourcing tool, ID offers a full life-cycle that takes ideas from conception through socialization, ranking and evaluation, selection, and eventual development. Selected ideas seamlessly feed into business case development and finally to portfolio and project management tools and processes.

InnovationDirectoris making the harvesting of innovative ideas a repeatable enterprise process and a new corefunction in companies. Companies must evolve in order to survive in today’s dynamic high pressure ecosystem. InnovationDirector is a solution that makes evolution a natural business process.”

-Kris Athey, CIO QuantumPM, LLC

Early on, QuantumPM, LLC, understood that it was not enough to support an innovation collection and socialization mechanism. A tool relevant to business needs must move beyond the initial crowdsourcing function to true business management processes in an efficient and integrated manner. In light of that, the product was built to work either as a SaaS or on-premise solution. Recognizing the collaborative and document management features, QuantumPM chose to utilize Microsoft’s SharePoint platform, one of the fastest growing collaboration platforms in companies today. This enables Innovation Director adoptees to exploit their current IT investment and software architecture. To complete the lifecycle for the Innovation Management tool, it also utilizes Microsoft’s Enterprise Project Portfolio Management Solution (Project Server). This optional functionality represents the rigor and governance needed to manage the ideas once they have been promoted to projects for implementation and execution.

“After successfully creating a corporate culture of innovation, we needed a customizable solution to manage the volume of ideas generated”. This national health carrier relied on QuantumPM to develop an innovation management framework using Microsoft’s SharePoint platform as the technology solution for their business.”

InnovationDirector, and the core it is built on, is the culmination of years of experience working with companies to understand their needs, eliminate organizational and cultural barriers, and create an “innovation” culture.
