TemboSocial Ideas for IBM Connections

Collaboration software for generating, curating, and discovering great ideas

IBM Connections

"Whilst Ideation Blogs in Connections cover some of the principal requirements, there are a number of areas in which other platforms have gone further…Therefore, I am delighted to see TemboSocial fully integrate their cross-platform ideation technology, Ideas, with IBM Connections."

Create an Active Collaboration Space

The user interface brings a contemporary feel to your idea discussions. TemboSocial Ideas leverages participant activity and profiles to create an exciting and lively collaboration space.    

When your internal tools work and feel like the social tools your employees use outside the office, you are able to boost participation and foster a culture of innovation.

Best Ideas

Brings out the Best Ideas and Most Useful Comments

With Ideas you can leverage the crowd to do much more then just vote for the ideas they like, they can also classify comments submitted to each idea with social tagging. 

Advanced algorithms reduces duplicate ideas. Fewer duplicate ideas contributes to higher levels of activity since there is less annoying repetition. Addressing duplicate ideas also ensures that energy of a great idea is not watered down across multiple discussions.

Run Multiple Idea Discussions Simultaneously

Tags and Filters

The best ideas don't always come from one person. Empower participants to shape the conversation, surface meaningful content to others and contribute sentiment data to the reporting algorithm that will identify the most valuable ideas for each discussion.

Participants can filter between Top ideas, Trending ideas, Recent ideas or by the current review status. Easily keep track of all ‘Your Stuff’ where you are a contributor to an idea discussion.
