SharePoint Idea Management

Viima idea management solution is fully compatible with Microsoft SharePoint

We at Viima believe that idea management process should be engaging, fun and effective! 

Idea management is done right when it brings immediate positive results to the team and benefits the whole organization. Working is no longer limited to time or place and we are constantly trying to find new, more effective and creative ways to work individually and together with our teams.

Microsoft SharePoint is an intranet where internal and external stakeholders can share information and utilize professional networks. SharePoint recently quit supporting its Ideas&Votes-feature, which already had some limitations when it came to supporting an integrated idea management process.

While SharePoint is a great tool for sharing information, alone it fails to capture tacit knowledge and to engage team members in continuous, structured and result-oriented ideation process.

Luckily, Viima's idea management solution integrates with SharePoint and other Office 365 collaboration tools, providing you with an effective tool for managing your ideas.
