Idea management software

Open Social is ideal for developing ideas into results. Use our idea management software to find the best ideas or improve business areas. Or generate creativity from hundreds of members.

From the collection of ideas to implementation, our software supports every step of ideation. It’s time to say goodbye to messy spreadsheets and lost information. All stages of development will be in one place.

The best part? You get to make the community your own; a place comfortable enough for people to share.

Open Ideation Feature


It’s not just about the idea generation. It’s about breathing life into the ideas you have.

Successful innovation is sometimes just a matter of organizational flexibility. It requires a well-executed and diligent process. This is why we built the ideation feature.

The open ideation feature allows groups to present a problem or challenge that the community should solve together. Community managers can set user-defined stages and advance ideas as they develop. Members can comment on ideas and follow the progress. Feedback and votes ensure that the best ideas are created.

This feature was co-developed and sponsored by foraus, a Swiss think tank from Switzerland. This module is currently only available for enterprise clients.
