SOPRO, the new solution to brainstorm online!
Have you ever been part of a brainstorming session? Have you ever exchanged ideas with your co-workers on a flipchart? It’s now possible to do brainstorming online with SoPro, the new web-based tool for meetings! Whether you are in Paris, Rio or New York, you can go online to exchange ideas, with your colleagues , simultaneously on a single screen.
A problem to solve? Select the people you wish to work with by going through the lists of people, and choose them based on their skills / knowledge.
Set the scope of the brainstorming, share ideas simultaneously on the graph, vote for the most relevant ideas to your problem ; then the brainstorming’s administrator selects the most appropriate ideas and writes a report that can be shared.
Nowadays, creativity is central to companies. In order to foster it in their employees, they hire coaches or facilitators as it’s a process that requires tools and formalism.
SoPro is an ergonomic web-project, that is easy to use with its dynamic and user- friendly interface and propose optimal conditions of thought. The solution uses all phases of a real brainstorming: selection of the most appropriate persons, definition of a a subject and the scope of reflection, an opening phase where users put all their ideas (all ideas are good) and visualize what is being done by their colleagues in real-time, a convergence phase where users select the most relevant ideas based on feasibility, then a phase of decision where the administrator chooses the best ideas and finally communication phase where you can write a summary that can be shared.
This solution was developed with the latest web technologies (HTML5, CSS3, JS) and handles all the technical complexity of displaying and storing quasi-simultaneous graphs. It’s compatible with the latest versions of the most popular browsers (Google Chrome 24.0, 18.0 Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer 10.0). It will be released under a free license GNU GPL to allow any person or company to customize it.
