SIEMENS: CROWDSOURCING INNOVATION

CROWDSOURCING IDEAS LEADS TO COST SAVINGS, REDUCED ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT

Siemens built its Mobility IDEA Contest on Spigit, using crowdsourcing and open innovation to address major transportation challenges that affect global productivity and efficiency.

 



CHALLENGE

Implementing an innovation platform that various business units could all use for their individual innovation programs, tapping internal employees, external crowds, or both.

SOLUTION

Siemens implemented the Spigit innovation management platform, and launched its Mobility IDEA Contest to find innovative ideas to help solve five of the toughest challenges facing the traffic industry.

RESULTS

A vastly expanded and engaged global network for open innovation, resulting in access to countless mobility ideas that can be tapped over time.

“It was a great experience interacting with the public in this way. We’ve learned about many challenges we weren’t even aware of.”

Director of R&D, Siemens Mobility, Intelligent Traffic Systems
