Spigit Launches App Where Consumers Can Virtually "FaceOff"

PLEASANTON, CA--(Marketwire - Nov 15, 2011) - Spigit, the crowd innovation company, today announced the launch of their "FaceOff" application, a new brand ideas game. FaceOff allows consumers to contribute and vote on ideas that they'd like their favorite brands to pursue, and identifies ideas with the top potential for further development. Spigit will be demonstrating FaceOff at the Enterprise 2.0 conference today.

The idea for FaceOff spawned from the larger role consumers are playing in brand innovation. This contribution has been facilitated by the improved ease of use of social networking tools and their growing adoption rates. FaceOff takes this consumer-to-brand collision and makes it purposeful in the context of a gaming environment.

"Spigit was at the cutting edge of innovation management four years ago when we introduced prediction markets to the innovators toolbox," said Paul Pluschkell, founder and CEO, Spigit. "Today we're showing the first of our new techniques for activating crowds by rethinking the way you capture crowd preference."

FaceOff allows consumers to engage with each other and the brands they love in a simple, game-driven environment where they contribute brand ideas and rate them in order to unearth the most popular ideas and the most viable players. The game creates an engaged consumer community by encouraging players to vie for a top spot on the leaderboard in order to gain social recognition and points as they vote on, submit, and share ideas via social channels. Aggregated across a crowd, FaceOff uses these preference choices to create a powerful and sophisticated way of identifying ideas that hold the greatest potential.

Players can win prizes by contributing ideas for the world's largest coffee chain, furniture retailer and other popular brands. The Company will make the capability generally available in the next version of its software, SpigitEngage. For more information about FaceOff, please visit
