Following up on the announcement of our acquisition by Spigit, we are sharing the Kindling product roadmap and our plans for ongoing support. The Kindling and Spigit teams are working diligently together to ensure that the transition goes smoothly, but if you have questions along the way, you can reach out to your Account Manager or to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Kindling’s Product Roadmap
There will be two more releases of the Kindling platform as we continue to bring you the most-requested features, as well as enhancements. Our beginning-of-March release will improve participant engagement in your innovation program, while the mid-April update will emphasize expert participation. We will also make it easier to export all of your data from Kindling.
Following the April update, Kindling will go into maintenance mode, during which we will deliver only critical fixes to the platform.
Your Upgrade Path to Spigit
We will be working with each customer individually to plan for your upgrade to the Spigit platform on a timeline that makes sense for you.
