New Features

We're looking for your (and our customers) ideas for new features. Each product manager and designer will be given 26 hours each quarter to pledge to their favorite ideas and we commit to implementing at least 1 every 6 months. The winners will not only get to see their feature built, but also be mentioned as a key creator and named on any patents!

Customer Problem Sensing

Understanding our customer problems is the key to solving them. If we don't understand the nuanced experience we are attempting to transform with our new product or service, it is far less likely that we will be successful in transforming it. Tell us what customer problems you have observed or heard directly from our customers.

Number of Ideas: 9

Why Is Your Participation Important?

Ideation is often been called "structured brainstorming", and is a powerful technique and a vital step for innovation and forward thinking. There are many traditional ways to get new ideas – suggestion boxes, hiring reputable business gurus, and various forms of market research, for example. However, today's intense competition and the pressure to transform business models in our dynamic industry require more discipline and thought for effective innovation. It's not easy, and you have to think…a lot. As Thomas Edison described idea generation in 1929, it's "1% inspiration and 99% perspiration".

That being said your participation and contribution is vital to our organization and our mission
