Community + Surveys+ Ideation Contests = Community-Box CSI

Embedded Open Source Solution

For the first time, by introducing the Community-Box CSI, we can offer you a community platform which allows you to optimally tap into the knowledge of your employees, clients, and suppliers and use it for yourself and for a faster innovation process!
The decision is yours whether you want to go online with our preconfigured Community-Box CSI or with a version adjusted and tailored individually for you!

We help you find the right way!


The basis of the Community-Box consists of the standard functions necessary for running a own community. Part of that are open, moderated, and private groups, discussions, user profiles, messaging and activity systems, options for uploading media items like pictures and videos, and the possibility to comment on and rate content.

If necessary, apart from discussions further content types will be available, such as documents, questions & answers, polls (single multiple choice question), and a wiki for user generated content.

By means of different user roles, the access permissions within the community can be managed. The predefined content types and user roles can be modified or complemented by new ones.

Personen in einer Community


In case a simple poll (single multiple choice question) does not meet your demands, a complete survey software can be implemented into the community.
For that purpose, we use the open source solution LimeSurvey offering all functions and types of questions of a modern survey software while being free of license costs.
The surveys are created via the administration interface of LimeSurvey and get integrated into the community platform afterwards.

In case you will ever want to survey a target group outside of the community, of course you can do so using a standard function of LimeSurvey and the domain made available.

Ideation Contests

Use the open innovation potential of your clients, suppliers, employees, interested persons, in other words your own community.

Start ideation contests for questions and problems that for a lasting and faster innovation process cannot be solved with business internal resources exclusively. Open up your innovation process to the outside world and gain new impetus for the development.

During the first phase of the idea competition, ideas are submitted which will be rated and annotated during the second phase. Finally, the best ideas can be awarded and passed on to the next step of the innovation process.
