Mar 30, 2011, 12:59 ET from Hype Softwaretechnik GmbH

BONN, Germany, March 30, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- A decisive factor for the success of innovation management is the motivation of every single employee to make a purposeful contribution to the innovation process. With this in mind, HYPE, the world's leading provider of idea and innovation management solutions, has developed a new function for visualizing employee reputation: innovative employees are rewarded for their involvement in generating and evaluating new ideas using virtual credits, which indicate their competence and make it perceptible throughout the company. The overall result, as shown in the findings of the test phase, is that employees are permanently motivated to contribute to the innovation process.

The innovation manager is free to decide how various criteria influence reputation and in what way the reputation level is visualized. The software adapts itself to the desires and demands of the customer, and not vice versa.
