The place where people with ideas can put their hand up and be heard!

IdeaJam is a simple, yet powerful piece of idea and innovation management software. The basic premise is that anyone within the organisation can post an idea and others are able to comment on, make further suggestions and even vote on whether to “promote” a good idea or “demote” the less relevant.
