January 2011 Sponsor – Spigit

Spigit - January Blogging Innovation SponsorThank you to Spigit for sponsoring Blogging Innovation for January 2011.

What a year! Spigit ended 2010 with a record quarter in revenues and bookings, customers and headcount. In the beginning of January, Spigit was recognized as one of JMP Securities’ “Hot 100: Best Privately Held Companies in the Software Industry”. The leader in purpose-built innovation software also announced the appointment of innovation thought-leader, author and former CTO of UK’s Dept of Works and Pensions, Dr. James Gardner, as the General Manager of International Operations. Dr. Gardner will oversee all local functions and departments including sales, community management, localization and professional services.

In addition to executive team expansion, Spigit announced that the company has been chosen by the city of New York to power their city employee innovation efforts. The city plans to roll out Spigit’s idea management solution to over 300,000 employees citywide. The goal of the NYC’s innovation initiative is to break down internal silos and encourage open communication to tackle city issues ranging from operation efficiencies and costs to resident services. Spigit is quickly becoming the leader in government innovation solutions, and looks forward to assisting other government agencies in achieving their goals of uncovering game-changing ideas, greater transparency and increased efficiency.

If you are implementing innovation management software to better manage your innovation process and deliver on your innovation strategy, I encourage you to add Spigit to your consideration set. You really can’t manage innovation successfully with e-mail or paper submissions.
