HunchBuzz - Idea Management


HunchBuzz is a collaboration tool for crowdsourcing ideas from employees, partners and customers

Organizations, whatever their purpose, know employee and customer engagement is good for business. Employees who have a voice and feel directly connected to business outcomes are more engaged and productive, and a lower retention risk; customers who have a direct channel for feedback are more satisfied. HunchBuzz lets you engage your employees and customers and collaborate on ideas—in a structured way.

As organizations grow the opportunities for individuals to collaborate in a personal, productive manner decreases. Silos can begin to form, inhibiting flow across the organization. HunchBuzz enables greater collaboration by managing the idea generation and evaluation process through a simple and intuitive tool.
