Continuous Improvement


Software to Build a Culture of Improvement

Ideawake is the easiest way to capture, prioritize, and action improvements from the office, water cooler, or manufacturing floor.

Centralize Collection & Tracking

Easily capture or import improvements from anywhere, anytime. Rank and collaborate on improvements in real time.

Customizable Workflows

Move improvements through best practice workflows like PDCA and DMAIC, or build your own custom processes.

Improve Transparency

Smart notifications to automatically keep submitters up to date on the status of their improvements.

“Before Ideawake, we collected and managed ideas via email threads. Now, our process is much more transparent because employees can easily track the progress of their ideas as they are evaluated and implemented. Getting started was easy.”
