    • Encourages participants to share ideas broadly across functional and geographic silos
    • Allows participants to comment and collaborate on ideas
    • Allows participants to vote up or down on ideas
    • Allows participants to follow specific ideation threads and categories
    • Ranks ideas to make sure the best bubble up to the top
    • Recognizes and rewards top innovators and collaborators
