SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/16/14 -- Mindjet customer Cambia Health Solutions, a nonprofit total health solutions company, was awarded the Ovum Industry's "On the Radar" Award, in the Improving Workplace Productivity category.
Ovum awards recognize outstanding companies for their innovative use of technology and highlight the innovative ideas, products, or business models that enable end-user organizations to generate significant business value.
Innovation is one of Cambia's core values and the company strongly believes not only in ideas, but also in people with ideas. They utilize Mindjet's SpigitEngage innovation management platform to drive the innovation process throughout the organization.
"When we started to think about innovation and creating a full-on scalable innovation program to engage our employees in ideation, design, and implementation of various product, business, and leadership challenges, we turned to Mindjet's SpigitEngage platform," said Mohan Nair, Chief Innovation Officer at Cambia Health Solutions. "The SpigitEngage platform allows us to involve our employees and generate ideas that will help Cambia collaborate, become more transparent, and prioritize business goals. It really takes Cambia to the next level of ingenuity."
