Portal of Pain (PoP) Launches PoPin CrowdSourcing Leadership Tool
Red Robin® Gourmet Burgers, The Table Group, F5 Networks and others deploy PoPin to make social feedback actionable
IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Portal of Pain (PoP), a lean startup platform for IT executives to share and solve business-critical problems, today launched
PoPin, a CrowdSourcing leadership tool that transforms how executives engage with internal teams, partners and customers to help drive innovation.
PoPin is a SaaS mobile and web solution that facilitates the CrowdSourcing of ideas that a team votes to the top. This
process helps companies solicit feedback from large groups while facilitating a productive discussion and driving
problem resolutions on a range of management issues.
PoPin-selected initiatives are then CrowdSolved through specific discussions to deliver timely and innovative impacts
to relevant corporate objectives. This format results in highly motivated and better-aligned teams, as well as healthier,
more productive organizations, according to Hayes Drumwright, founder of PoPin and CEO of Trace3, a pioneer in
business transformation solutions. Trace3 works with more than 2,000 globally recognized companies.
“Companies today are riddled with cultural challenges and dysfunctional processes that prevent business leaders from
engaging with and motivating employees, partners and customers on a range of business-critical ideas, projects or
initiatives,” said Drumwright. “We initially developed this product as an internal tool at Trace3, which helped us identify
and correct a variety of problems. When we realized the power of this tool, we wanted to roll it out to our client group to help them address their own internal
challenges.”
Red Robin Gourmet Burgers recently deployed PoPin as part of its company-wide push to leverage social media as a way to glean critical insights and ideas
from managers in nearly 400 restaurants throughout the U.S. The executive team will use PoPin for its quarterly operations meetings, and regional directors will
use the social collaboration tool year-round.
“PoPin allows us to contain, control and curate social conversations in order to uncover, solve and implement specific business and operational initiatives,” said
Chris Laping, CIO of Red Robin.
In addition, F5 Networks, the global leader in application delivery networking, recently implemented PoPin with 70 of their partners around the globe.
“We deployed PoPin as a way to help us collaborate more effectively with our expanding global partner network,” said Lisa Citron, Director, Channel Sales, for F5
Networks. “With PoPin, we are able to leverage a proven process designed to share ideas, and create the actionable intelligence needed to build consensus.
This helps us to more efficiently take advantage of opportunities as they arise and to address business challenges with practical solutions.”
The Table Group, a specialized management consulting firm, also leverages PoPin as a critical leadership tool for its clients.
“PoPin provides an innovative approach to CrowdSourcing that gives actionable insights from key constituents to inform the next generation of leadership,” said Al
Amador, Vice President of Consulting at The Table Group. “PoPin combines the latest CrowdSourcing technology and smart management practices to flatten an
organization and break down the communications barriers that limit the discovery of real problems, timely opportunities and relevant solutions.”
