What they say[edit]

“Edistorm takes the metaphor of sticky notes on a boardroom wall and brings it online allowing anyone – anywhere to brainstorm with only a web browser.

Each user picks their favorite ideas and Edistorm brings the best ones forward.

Edistorm allows you to work on your ideas during a structured brainstorming session but the storm is available 24/7 and can be referred to, added to and revised on an ongoing basis.

Edistorm allows you to organize your ideas in a real time interactive wall. Each sticky note can have its own color and the users decide what the arrangement means to them.
