SAN FRANCISCO, CA: Spigit, a crowd-sourcing innovation solution and subsidiary of Mindjet, recently revealed that, telecommunication giants Sprint will be using their innovation management platform to power Sprint Idea Network.

Sprint Idea Network is an ingenious method to manage employee engagements across the company, locating ideas that solely focus on shareholder value. Since the introduction of the network, nearly 1500 new ideas have been suggested, which are poised to solve business needs.

Spigit’s Innovation Management Platform will automatically select the best ideas, using trusted, patented, crowd science algorithms. The platform is successful because, studies show that a crowd can make a more precise prediction than an individual expert or a small trained group. Meaning, all the employees of a firm will have an idea of their ultimatum and suggestions and ideas will have a far greater, positive impact on the firm’s business when compared to the analysis of a single expert.

Spigit helps companies to invent new products, identify new markets, improve customer experience, streamline processes and increase employee engagement with innovation management. Joao ‘Tex’ Teixeira, Manager of Technology, Strategy, and Innovation at Sprint confirms this by observing, “Spigit helps us facilitate our employees’ engagements across the U.S. and focus the diverse, collective brainpower of our people.”
