Customer Success Stories


Based in the Netherlands, Kwintes is one of the country’s largest providers of mental health care, supporting clients with psychiatric or psychosocial problems. With over 1,100 client care facilities, they provide tailor-made care to those with multiple and complex problems, helping clients with their living situation, work and developing an independent life.

Kwintes initially launched their Innovation Lab, powered by edison365ideas, to the board. They identified 4 ideas that could have a real impact on their services, one of which was Tinybot Tessa. Tessa is a small robotic helper that helps patients create structure in their day with reminders to get out of bed, get dressed, and take their medicine.

Atrium Health

Atrium Health has led the way as the first health system in North Carolina to administer an FDA-approved COVID-19 vaccine.

During a recent Master Class hosted by Innovation Leader we spoke with our customer Todd Dunn, Vice president of Innovation at Atrium health about how Atrium Health has harnessed the knowledge of its 60,000 – 70,000 employee base to capture efficiency innovation. 

Dallas Fort Worth Airport

Dallas Fort Worth Airport (DFWA) chose the edison365suite to transform its approach to innovation management and delivery, enhance the travel experience for millions of passengers and optimize safety for all its stakeholders.

In the past year, air travel has faced a difficult time and leaders at the airport determined that a total ‘innovation ecosystem’ was needed. Combining edison365 with its existing Microsoft 365 investment, enables DFWA to discover capture, evaluate, rollout and execute innovation projects. Today, DFWA has an accelerated pipeline of ideas, innovations and successful projects enabled by Microsoft and edison365.

Haley & Aldrich

One of our customers, Haley & Aldrich already had a culture focused on innovation and investing in their people, but they just needed the right mechanism to carry that into idea management. They chose to underpin their culture of innovation with edison365ideas. Now, employees feel like their ideas are being heard and can now track the progress themselves. Each employee can share in the process of innovating, and some are now seeing idea contribution as a part of their professional development goals.

“We identified $1 Million of lost revenue per annum through the collection of ideas submitted through edison365ideas. That was within the first few months of turning the system live and so we’re excited for what other impactful ideas are put forward in the future.” Ben Chandler, Chief Innovation Officer, Haley & Aldrich.
