Welcome! This demonstration allows you to explore ideocial and understand how it can improve innovation in your business.
ideocial is targeted at idea generation and capture, and has the potential to increase both the quality and quantity of ideas generated across your organisation.
Close integration with Yammer allows you to improve the return on investment of your existing enterprise social media platform, and will lead to improved collaboration and engagement.
Detailed reporting from ideocial allows administrators to better understand network interactions and quantify the benefits of combining innovation with social media.
Click on the right arrow to begin the journey by creating your profile …
Fill out your name below and choose a profile photo. In the live version of ideocial, these will be already there from Yammer.
After you've entered your name and chosen a photo, click on the right arrow to continue …
ideocial uses your existing Yammer login, so you don't have to create a new profile or remember another password.
Access is granted through the secure OAuth 2.0 protocol, which means that ideocial never requires your Yammer password. You only need to register for ideocial once. After that, if you're signed into Yammer then you're automatically signed into ideocial.
Click on the right arrow to continue (this form is just an example) …
The foundation of ideocial is a Challenge, which might be created to meet a particular business need, or to encourage creative idea generation.
A Challenge attaches to a Yammer Group, and only members of that Group can participate.
ideocial creates a digital wallet for each Group member, which Challenge Administrators allocate value to. This could be allocated evenly, or perhaps match some real-world responsibility. This virtual currency can then be spent on supporting Challenge pitches.
Imagine you want to create a new wearable technology product, and put that Challenge to the Yammer Group.
Add a message below and feel free to change some of the details, then click on the right arrow to continue …
ideocial's close integration with Yammer allows seamless engagement with the Group.
When you create a Challenge, a new post will also appear on Yammer to increase awareness of your ideocial activity.
Click the blue alert bar to show the new post, and then on the right arrow to continue …
The next step on ideocial is submitting a Pitch – a solution to the Challenge.
A Pitch can include rich content, such as pictures and videos, to showcase its benefits.
Just like on public crowdfunding platforms, intrapreneurs are able to offer token rewards to their supporters. In the example below, a supporter who pledges 5 from their wallet will get to be a beta tester, while a supporter who pledges 7 will receive an hour of mentoring time.
An Administrator probably wouldn't submit a Pitch in their own Challenge, so the next page will show you an example …
Sophie and Peter have entered into the Challenge. ideocial allows Group members to read updates, make comments, and spend from their Challenge wallet to support Pitches.
Support , read Sophie and Peter's Updates, and then click on the right arrow to continue …
When you support a Pitch a message can be posted to the Yammer Group, as well as a news item on Yammer's activity stream.
Click the blue alert bar to show your new message, and then on the right arrow to continue …
Each Challenge has a dashboard which tracks the progress of its Pitches. As you can see there are now three Pitches (, moniFit, and cineGlass). The Pitch with the most support will be the winner.
Spend some time exploring the dashboard for the Challenge, and then click on the right arrow to continue …
Administrators can view Challenge analytics such as page views, edit the Challenge details, as well as export Pitch and voting data. Exports are useful for tracking social media engagement and incorporating Pitches into existing innovation management processes.
Spend some time exploring the reporting available for the Challenge, and then click on the right arrow to continue …
We hope this demonstration has given you a taste of how ideocial can improve the quality and quantity of innovative ideas in your business.
ideocial allows the use of any idea generation technique, letting the wisdom of the crowd refine and select the best ideas. The winning ideas can then be easily exported and incorporated into your existing innovation management processes. There's also the added benefit of improved stakeholder adoption, as the winning Pitch has already been promoted on Yammer.
Enterprise social media is potentially extremely powerful, yet its benefits are notoriously difficult to measure. ideocial's detailed reporting about page views and interactions allows you to create quantified proof points on the benefits of combining innovation with enterprise social media.
