CINCINNATI, OH--(Marketwired - Apr 3, 2013) - Batterii the enterprise platform for creative collaboration is announcing design updates to its Projects capability for structured team-based collaboration as well as the addition of Walls to its Inspiration Curation and Collection space. In addition, Batterii announces the launch of its new Android app; now users of both Android and iOS devices can take advantage of better interactions and convenient mobile capture and upload to the Batterii Platform.
Since December 2011, the Batterii product development team has been building out a platform around a creative process that empowers team and ensures collaboration. Nike, ConAgra Foods, S.C. Johnson, Octagon and other clients have successfully implemented Batterii into their innovation process, and their feedback has led to the newest features.
Similar to Pinterest boards, Inspiration Walls empower employees to capture and collect ideas, insights, and things they find interesting while at home, work, or on-the-go using Batterii's mobile app. They can share their walls with teammates, helping to supplement the traditional research and ideation process that happens in the workplace.
"We provide a platform that allows our clients to capture the passion and energy of teams across the globe to deliver successful projects," says Batterii CEO Kevin C. Cummins.
"Enhanced evaluation allows teams to measure the ideas they collected and rank these ideas based on key business goals, like cost, speed of implementation, strategic alignment to goals, or improvement of customer service. The platform enables the collection of key performance indicators to measure the ideas that are being put forth," Cummins says, "and, when completed, there is a better understanding of how solutions align with goals."
Innovation Excellence and Kevin Riley, founder of Kevin Riley & Associates, is one of the first to use the new platform for a yearlong project called modelH, the Health Model Co-Creation Forum. The modelH project will engage a team of 500 members from the healthcare community to co-create new business models for the industry.
"We are trying to accomplish no small feat: to co-create a better healthcare system with some of the best thinkers from disparate healthcare disciplines. We needed so much more than an idea system. We needed an engine to help us create, collaborate, and validate. I have looked at many innovation platforms, including the market leaders. In my experience, the Batterii platform is the only one that can serve our need. I am wholly impressed."
LeAnna J. Carey, Chief Digital Officer of Innovation Excellence, says that, "The modelH project is a groundbreaking project; we have pulled together an innovation dream team and Batterii is an unique platform that intersects social, collaboration, and co-creation with scalability."
Batterii will be featuring the new platform April 22nd to 24th at the Food Technology & Innovation Forum in Chicago. In addition, don't miss Batterii's booth at FEI, the Front End of Innovation conference in Boston May 6-8, 2013. Batterii founder Chad Reynolds will speak on the value of the creative process in innovation on May 6th.
