At FoodLogiQ we believe that product roadmaps should be aligned with the needs of our users, and there’s no better way to get that input than directly hearing what features users would like implemented.
In March 2017 we launched the FoodLogiQ Idea Portal with the goal to give our customers a direct method to propose feature enhancements and stay connected to the development process. This included visibility as features are being developed, tested, and deployed.
As we reflect on 2017, here are a few numbers and items that stand out:
300+ Ideas Submitted
More than 300 new ideas were submitted through the Idea Portal from users since the public launch in March. Some ideas are large feature extensions and some may be small enhancements to the existing product suite - regardless of size, the product management team triages and evaluates all ideas for inclusion into the product suite.
1,453 Votes on Ideas
1,453 votes were cast for the 300+ ideas that were submitted. The number of votes on an idea is a key metric that the product management team uses to help prioritize new features for development.
Votes have been cast across all 18 categories listed in the idea portal. The two feature categories that have received the most votes are “Products” and “Suppliers”.
140 Ideas Released
140 ideas were completed and incorporated into theFoodLogiQ Connect platform to date, with new items being incorporated into our frequent release schedule.
Customer collaboration has always been at the center of our product roadmap. We value all the ideas, votes and comments that have been submitted as they help shape the future of FoodLogiQ Connect.
