We have been using our virtualHOTHOUSE® online collaboration tool since 2010 – as a faster and more effective way for innovation teams to share and evaluate fresh insights and new ideas linked to a specific innovation objective. The latest version 4.0 includes new tools and features to enhance the editing, sharing and evaluation, including idea screening with target consumers via fastSCREEN™ and a range of geeky backend upgrades. In 2019, some of the best features of the system were included in a new tool called Zip-Zap Ideas®. Watch the movie to find out more or drop us a line. Enquire now »
