Developed by Brightidea Labs, Brightidea MobileTM is modeled after the company's class-leading suite of innovation management products. The app supports public or private communities and is designed to support the rigorous security requirements and access controls required by large enterprises that host many online brainstorms simultaneously.

"With the release of Brightidea MobileTM, we renew our commitment to our clients, to provide the most powerful tools available for augmenting and tracking the innovation process."

Users of Apple's iPhone and iPad can quickly traverse between multiple WebStorms through the familiar iPhone interface and simple navigation menu with built-in access to all accounts, campaigns, ideas, and comments. With Brightidea Mobile, users can view, post, comment, vote, and share ideas as well as use Brightidea's corporate micro-blogging feature that allows users to post and follow activity within their innovation community.

One of Brightidea's first clients to roll-out the mobile app is The Nielsen Company. "We are very excited about Brightidea Mobile since ideas come anytime, anywhere," said Ann Marie Dumais, SVP, New Product Introductions Leader at Nielsen. "Now we can submit, comment, and vote on ideas right from our mobile devices and even outside the office and after work hours.
