Your company doesn't employ all the bright minds in the world, but that doesn't mean you can't work with them. With HYPE's open innovation software, you can tap into the collective intelligence of your customers, partners, and employees. 

A great crowd to start with: your supply chain

HYPE Open Innovation Campaigns
Here are the top four reasons Supply Chain Open Innovation is successful:
  1. You already have a relationship with the contributing parties.
  2. You can be sure that their ideas are relevant to your business because they know you too.
  3. As your suppliers, they have a vested interest in your success.
  4. Contracts are in place and mitigate risks (or the fear of which).

Software for Open Innovation


  • Inclusive innovation platform: You can safely invite external parties to your internal innovation platform.
  • Optional "Satellite" setup:If required, your open innovation (OI) platform can be a separate satellite to your internal innovation system. Only the satellite is exposed to external parties, and data is transferred only one-way from the external to the internal system.
  • Optional "Innovation Spaces": HYPE's Innovation Spaces allow for individualized user interfaces and settings for the external parties you would like to invite. That means that your satellite can look individual to different parties who participate in your initiative.
  • Self-registration: Your OI partners can register themselves, reducing the workload for your admin.
  • Guest access: You can specify content that is visible for visitors who haven't registered yet to stimulate interest and engagement.
  • Excellent user experience: the software is easy to use for everyone and compliant with WCAG 2.0 AA standards (Section 508 compliant).
