isn - innovation service network
8045 Graz, Austria
As part of the establishment of a Group-wide innovation management system, a digital innovation platform was sought as a cross-site support tool. In the search for and evaluation of various solutions, our ideas platform emerged as the best tool. The company's innovation expertise since 2001 was also of great importance for the successful cooperation.
A growth path via the digitization of service innovations was defined as an important first strategic pillar. To this end, TÜV AUSTRIA has established an internal innovation management system. One of the core elements of innovation management is to be a company-wide innovation platform in which all employees can participate.
Collaborative work across locations, independent of time and place, networks the knowledge of employees and thus provides new ideas and impetus for innovation. The improvement and suggestion system (CIP) is also handled via the innovation platform. More than 150 decentrally managed innovation projects have emerged from internal challenges and CIPs. The results of the innovation projects have significantly supported the company's growth.
The functional scope and rollout scenario for the innovation platform were developed in close coordination with the internal innovation manager. In addition to implementing the technical solution, particular emphasis was placed on internal project marketing. The platform was developed under the "innovatüv®" brand and an initial cross-site ideas initiative was launched. Top management was part of the initiative from the beginning and still stands behind innovation management as a promoter. isn has entered into a development partnership with TÜV AUSTRIA since 2016 to further develop the ideas platform in a customer-oriented manner. The annually planned and implemented functional enhancements also benefit other customers.
