    Default Idea Management & Product Development

    Does anyone have experience using Sugar (Open Source) as a central idea management tool?

    We'd like a solution where ideas could be "opportunities" and progress through a research then product development process. Ideally, we'd be able to:

    1. Capture ideas for a new tool/solution or product from a variety of sources (if we have to, we can input the idea ourselves). Possibly log as an opportunity (though not a sales opportunity)?
    2. Use an Outlook plug-in to mark e-mail messages as belonging to an new tool/solution idea
    3. Identify possible approaches for building
    4. Identify/suggest available tools for research
    5. Compare features of various solutions
    6. Record discovery and other notes
    7. Ability to sign off on approach/requirements, etc.
    8. Ability to promote an idea/opportunity out of discovery into a product development project
    9. List stakeholders and others involved
    10. Allow end-users to subscribe to updates on researched idea or product development project


    Thanks!

    I do not have any experience like that, but it sounds like Module Builder would be a great start.

    I would love to talk to you more about that project though. It sounds like something I would want to use for us.

    Feel free to contact me so we can talk about it.

    That is a very good idea, I have been working on website development and find it difficult working with a team all over the US from remote locations. That could be a cool tool for keeping everyone on the same page for Development and Marketing. Thanks for the accidental tip

    Hi Guys,

    just came across your post. Did you find/develop a solution meanwhile? My company is currently looking for something very similar, so any info would be appreciated. We are currently looking into all possible suppliers, but haven't discovered something that would fit 100%.

    Thanks!

    A product can be developed only when the correct implementation of ideas occurs.Without an effective and feasible idea it is too difficult to produce a desired product.This is my personal view that any fruitful idea can be converted to a successful product.
