PARC, the Palo Alto Research Center, located in Silicon Valley, California, has become an Exago client – to support its internal innovation challenges and inform its strategic review process. Exago’s idea management solution will harness the powerful creative skills and collective intelligence of this company’s technology innovators in an inclusive, transparent and efficient way.
PARC does fundamental research in various areas. It has been the birthplace of many technology platforms, from the Ethernet and laser printing to ubiquitous computing and the graphical user interface (GUI) – leading to the creation of several industries.
To foster innovation and business challenges, as well as proficiently gather its people’s many insights and ideas, the company has decided to implement Exago’s idea management solution. Social, physical and computer scientists and engineers, as well as business and operational staff – from approximately 35 countries – can now share their efforts and collaborate more easily.
Innovation with a purpose
Based on an idea market software and expert services, Exago’s solution allows organisations to use collective intelligence to solve key business challenges and achieve real results. In this platform, participants can submit, comment, improve, evaluate and select the ideas they believe will bring more value to their company.
PARC, a Xerox company, is in the Business of Breakthroughs. Practicing open innovation, the company provides custom R&D services, technology, expertise, best practices, and intellectual property to Fortune 500 and Global 1000 companies, startups, and government agencies and partners.
