IdeaScale, the leading crowdsourcing and innovation software provider, recently announced the final winners of its Innovation Management Awards Competition and recognized Amway as the winner in the category of Best Engagement Strategy for its website The Voice, a crowdsourcing platform designed to gather insights from its distributors on potential initiatives.
This competition category recognizes the IdeaScale community that detailed the most creative and impressive engagement campaign to generate participation in the IdeaScale community. In this case, not only did Amway exceed all their engagement goals, they are pioneering a translation strategy that marries dynamic translation with human verification.
Since launch, 88% of Amway markets have registered Amway Business Owners (ABOs) on the site. That means that ABOs from over 100 countries and territories, speaking over 60 languages shared ideas and insights that help drive Amway innovation.
“What I find most impressive about Amway,” said Rob Hoehn, CEO and Co-Founder of IdeaScale “was how well their strategy embodies the best practices of open innovation where good ideas can come from anywhere and are most powerful when they can combine with others. Their program will surely benefit from maximizing the points of connection.”
Innovation Award winners receive a discount on their 2018 IdeaScale subscription, a VIP pass to IdeaScale’s Open Nation, a free success workshop, and more. More details of IdeaScale customer success can be found here.
