Building on the success of Innotribe at Sibos Hong Kong, we are launching Innotribe.com. True to Innotribe's promise to enable collaborative innovation, this new idea management tool together with a decisive and agile tracking and screening process, provide the infrastructure to share, discuss, select and develop ideas to shape the future of the financial industry.
Live as of 11 February 2010, www.innotribe.com allows you to submit your ideas related to innovation in the financial industry. Ideas can cover new products and services or enhancements thereof, as well as business processes and initiatives.
"We are thrilled to launch Innotribe.com. Innovation is a shared responsibility and this tool is a great step forward in bringing together the collective creativity of our community. We want to facilitate the process of idea management, and be the driver that enables ideas to grow into bona fide business projects."
Kosta Peric, Head of Innovation, SWIFT
Innotribe.com uses a cloud-based idea marketplace software application from Brightidea.com. Designed specifically for the collection, tracking and management of ideas, its voting capabilities enable you to select which ideas should be considered for further investment and development through proofs of concept; and potentially in which projects you wish to play a role.
With this new application, we aim to streamline and formalize the process, while enhancing transparency on what happens with the ideas you submitted. We've therefore also put in place a distributed screening process.
A team of SWIFT people from different regions and professional backgrounds, have been given the mandate to regularly monitor Innotribe.com and pre-select new ideas. This group will ask the owners of selected ideas to pitch their proposal to a group of senior decision makers. Which individuals are ultimately involved will depend on the topic to which the idea relates.
