Brightidea's Fall 2014 incorporates significant new platform capabilities and provides the foundation for future capabilities. Our new platform is built upon a new “single page app” architecture that provides significant performance improvements, including real-time updates of data and elimination of page refreshes. This upgrade also includes a completely new Pipeline capability for managing your custom end-to-end innovation workflow.
