SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - March 23, 2017) - Spigit, the world's leading provider of innovation management software, today announced its most powerful product release yet. Spigit's Spring 2017 release offers its customers greater and expanded enterprise integration capabilities along with a unique ability for executives to now track the value of a portfolio of ideas that drive company innovation, along with enhanced reporting and analytics. Also, Spigit today announced the appointment of Don Morrison as Executive Vice President of Worldwide Sales. Morrison has a stellar track record as a global technology executive, with more than 20 years of experience at ForeSee and GMAC.
This announcement comes on the heels of Spigit's recent announcement of the acquisition of Kindling Inc, and record growth of 39% in 2016.
Spigit adds enterprise-class integrations with Rest API
With the Spring 2017 release, Spigit now offers a Rest API for any customer to leverage. Spigit customers can now seamlessly integrate their idea pipeline and innovation process in Spigit with enterprise or a department-specific application like social communities, PLM, project management software, ERP, and others. Spigit's new Rest API can pull the best ideas from Spigit into a variety of complementary technologies such as rapid prototyping software and concept development tools and to accept ideas from any enterprise collaboration tool such as Slack, Jive, Yammer, Outlook, and others.
New innovation portfolio dashboard for managing the value of innovation within the enterprise
Spigit has added innovation portfolio value tracking and reporting to its unique business analytics capabilities. Teams can now keep track of the value of their innovation pipeline as the number of contributors and ideas grow in a crowdsourced and collaborative innovation program. Spigit customers will now have the ability to track and report the projected business value -- such as time, cost, revenue -- of their innovation pipeline across all business units in a centralized dashboard.
Don Morrison joins Spigit as EVP Worldwide Sales
Spigit is also thrilled to announce the addition of Don Morrison, Executive Vice President of Sales. Mr. Morrison is responsible for managing Spigit's accelerating growth globally. He previously served as EVP and General Manager at ForeSee, a market-leading Customer Experience Analytics software used by the global Fortune 500. While at ForeSee, Mr. Morrison oversaw explosive annual growth in ForeSee's sales, account base and sales team. He was formerly an executive with GMAC Commercial Finance, and Compuware and held leadership roles at MascoTech, Coopers and Lybrand and Deloitte & Touche.
"Spigit helps companies solve their most pressing need -- to innovate in an environment of disruption," said Don Morrison. "I was seeking another opportunity to work with best-in-class companies and bring them the premium solution to solve one of their core challenges. I'm looking forward to working with leading enterprises to dramatically improve their innovation programs."
"With the Spring 2017 release, we are extending our technology lead in the market. And with such a stellar executive as Don Morrison joining the Spigit executive team to lead worldwide sales, we are poised to grow even faster," said Scott Raskin, CEO of Spigit.
