With economic pressures and the competitive demand to deliver new
products to the marketplace, more companies across all industries are
expanding their new product development processes to sources outside the
enterprise to increase the flow of ideas and expand their new product
pipelines in a more economical manner.
In the Gartner report, Hype Cycle for
Emerging Technologies, 20121, the market for idea
management software is rapidly growing as organizations understand the
many benefits provided by implementing an open innovation process. In
this annual review of emerging technologies, Gartner analysts offer
their thoughts on what is driving the commercial adoption of new
technologies. In this year's report the adoption of online idea
management systems is increasing at a rate that will move it to
mainstream adoption within the next two years.
e-Zassi has responded to this demand with the first open innovation
software platform specifically designed to meet the requirements of
patent dependent industries. Delivered as a SaaS product, it provides a
standardized, yet customizable aproach to the submission, capture,
decision support and sharing of new ideas. The software utilizes a
proprietary and secure assessment format, which safe-guards against
intellectual property legal risks by offering protection for both
innovator and receiver. The e-Zassi platform also integrates with
workflow systems such as document management, CRM and product life-cycle
management software to provide a fully integrated end-to-end solution to
what is now a very manual business process.
Recently, a leading billion dollar global healthcare company deployed
e-Zassi's software solution to focus on attracting and managing new
product ideas. The company selected e-Zassi to power their open
innovation initiative based on its ability to provide bilateral security
for both the submitter and receiver of new ideas. Companies can easily
deploy the software on their corporate web sites to more systematically
attract and filter new product ideas. For additional information about
this unique deployment, contact e-Zassi directly at 904.432.8315.
