Bruce Wayne, George Lucas, and the team at Polaris industries have all conceptualized one of a kind vehicles built for power and speed. However, only Spigit customer Polaris has crowdsourcing and innovation management to thank for the unique design. Since its release the Slingshot has been compared to the Batmobile, a Star Wars pod racer, and something a Marvel superhero would drive.
Polaris's existing 'innovation' process was entirely manual, making their process fragmented, expensive, time consuming, and siloed. They turned to innovation management tools to help manage their innovation process and tap into their larger crowd.
As Joe Laurin, Visioneering Manager, at Polaris Industries mentioned: "We’re proud to have an innovative culture. Spigit lets us give employees an opportunity to create the next big thing."
