BERNMOBIL has announced the successful roll out of Qmarkets’ idea management platform to drive innovation for their municipal public transport services.
Tel Aviv, July 1, 2018 – BERNMOBIL, a major public transport operator in and around the Swiss Capital of Berne – has deployed Qmarkets’ innovation management software for use on desktop and mobile devices for nearly 1000 of its employees.
Serving over 100 million passengers every year, BERNMOBIL is widely recognized as one of the most forward-thinking public transport operators in Europe across a variety of challenges, from renewable energy to customer satisfaction. However, in order to become even more innovative and efficient, it was decided that the company would need to adopt an open approach to ideation by involving all employees in the process.
BERNMOBIL’s decision to select Qmarkets for this project came down to the flexible and user-friendly self-admin tool offered within the flex edition of Q-ideate. “We needed something intuitive that each member of our staff could master quickly.” Shared said Ariane Affolter, Project Manager of Corporate Development at BERNMOBIL “With Qmarkets, it was easy to roll out an engaging innovation system that was tailored to our exact requirements.”
This company-wide launch followed a highly successful pilot of the platform, which yielded 60 ideas and 200 idea votes from a total of 50 participants in less than a month.
The Qmarkets team worked closely with BERNMOBIL’s personnel to ensure their configuration, branding, and workflow requirements were comprehensively fulfilled.
“Innovation management has always played a major role in helping our company adjust to the changing landscape of Berne. Qmarkets’ platform allows us to streamline and amplify our innovation management processes, and we’re extremely pleased with the ideas and engagement levels it has generated so far.”
Working closely with Qmarkets staff, BERNMOBIL has migrated the successful ideas from their pilot seamlessly into the fully implemented system. “We are extremely pleased to work with an innovative municipal service provider like BERNMOBIL” said Michael Stilger, Qmarkets’ Co-founder. “The high level of engagement and idea generation BERNMOBIL has fostered so far reflects their creativity and ingenuity. We look forward to working with BERNMOBIL to drive innovation well into the future.”
