In our screenshot gallery, you can get a general impression
of the look & feel of the application.

The Fiori Launchpad contains all SAP Fiori applications that your employees can access.


The target idea management is integrated seamlessly with its own tile catalog.

The freely customizable idea management landing page is the central entry point for your users.


Here, all users have an overview of their open tasks, can see relevant news and jump to idea searches, key figures and other activities depending on user and role.

The central functionality of idea management is, of course, idea submission.


A user-friendly application makes it as easy as possible for your users to fill in the required information.


The integrated similarity search helps to avoid unnecessary duplicates.

Finding ideas is also as user-friendly as possible.


It is possible to find results via a simple text search across all indexed texts.


The predefined searches show each employee the data that is relevant in their current role.

Idea Search also offers a lot to your idea managers and experts.


With over 60 possible filters (some customer-defined) and sorting and export options, users can perform very specific queries and then edit the results list further.

In the idea detail display, the user is guided in the best possible way.


The most important information is always visible in the header area. With a graphical idea status, the user can see at a glance how far the idea has progressed.


With freely definable editing notes, you can include an explanatory text for the respective status of the idea.


Only the functions that the user is currently allowed to execute are visible. The visible functions are distributed to the correct toolbars according to the SAP Fiori Guidelines.

Key figures are an important control and information element in idea management.


Here, too, we offer an application that is suitable for all users. Everyone can get an overview of the relevant key figures of your company.


At the same time, a power user can drill down through the organizational units and use various export options to get only the information that is of interest to them.

With the new news maintenance application, authorized persons can create and edit news for all users at any time.

With a deputy application, cross-idea accounts, and further Fiori apps, all other functionalities of a modern idea management are also made available to your users.
