Spigit & Gloconsol Partner to Offer Comprehensive Idea & Innovation Management Solutions to the Netherlands

Spigit's Recent Partnerships Demonstrate Ongoing Commitment to the European Market

PLEASANTON, CA--(Marketwire - February 2, 2010) - Spigit, the leader in idea management software for the enterprise, and Gloconsol, the leader in innovative business development, today announced a partnership to bring comprehensive new collaboration and innovation solutions to the enterprise. This is Spigit's first partner in the Netherlands, and the combined offer will provide clients with a seamless innovation community for idea management.

"We are excited about our partnership with Spigit to offer their idea management solution," said Wouter Kakebeeke, Managing Director of Gloconsol. "Dutch companies have a tremendous amount of potential but have had to rely on their larger neighboring countries for resources. This offering could really stimulate innovation and allow the Netherlands to make use of its own assets. Spigit taps into the collective intelligence that already exists within their organizations to share ideas, streamline processes, cut costs, and drive product discovery."

Gloconsol is headquartered in the Netherlands, and specializes in picking up signals from the ever changing world and recognizing opportunities in the creative process of innovation management. By bridging unconnected industries and companies, new developments take place under the umbrella of business development.

Spigit has recently announced several partnerships throughout Europe and this new announcement highlights Spigit's ongoing commitment to this region. Spigit's technologies have become the industry standard for innovation management and collaboration for enterprises. Spigit's award-winning innovation solutions are already in use by many Fortune 2000 companies and other well-known brands at the forefront of innovation, including: AT&T, IBM, Pfizer, Lloyds Banking Group, MedPlus, Walmart, Southwest Airlines and Choice Hotels International. Spigit was also recently named to InformationWeek's Startup 50 list of the top business technology startups as selected by readers and editors.

"Our partnership with Gloconsol allows companies to identify market opportunities, make use of new discoveries and the latest technology that can fundamentally alter the economics of a marketplace," said Paul Pluschkell, CEO and Co-Founder of Spigit.
