Next, Innovation Agency
took the stage to demo its approach to innovation in financial services:
“Innovation Café is an advanced crowdsourcing innovation platform for companies to engage their innovation communities. It is highly configurable and is able to provide for both private and public ecologies as well as emergent and structured innovation approaches. Innovation Café is a lightweight platform with advanced white labeling and custom theme capabilities and the ability to integrate with SharePoint, HR and other systems to provide detailed reporting.
It is able to deal with a high volume of users and ideas and has a sophisticated social ranking and rating mechanism. Crowdsourcing and community collaboration pay attention to business objectives that are focused through idea challenges. Our judging, recognition/reward process, and digital persona releases are our primary focuses at FinovateEurope.”
