How it works

You ask for ideas on how to improve, for example, customer satisfaction
Alice submits a new idea she thinks would help solve a common customer problem
John attaches a business case calculation to the idea and notifies Katie
Katie evaluates the idea and recognizes that this idea could help save them tons of money
Katie drafts a plan and assigns the idea to Ben for implementation next month
Ben implements the idea and customer retention improves by 4%, worth an extra $350k annually

Compounding improvements lead to exponential results.

When you're systematically looking for ways to do things better, you'll end up working smarter and focusing on the right things. These results compound over time, leading to operational excellence that helps you build competitive advantage.
