While half of the planet is thinking about coming out of the stay at home order to go back to work, many wonder how to develop products remotely, to answer the issue of cancelled business trips, or to organize focus groups with consumers? Mushin adapted its digital platform for co-creation: mobile and web, customizable in a few hours, with a creative process that allows the visual to be at the center of the discussion about products without meeting in the same physical place. 

Preparing the post lock-in period
Because work methods in the following months will be different but product development objectives stay the same, Mushin is the opportunity to move forward differently. 
Traveling less, meeting digitally and sharing our advancement differently is the solution to speed up recovery. Mushin facilitates this process by answering the needs of coordination and staying connected, simplification of the collect and sharing of information, and alignment on common topics, today and tomorrow!

That’s what Salomon does with Mushin !
When the office is not the center of professional life anymore, Mushin can recreate the link around the product and allow to move forward efficiently in the construction of the offer”.
David Farcot, head of design at Salomon, is convinced. “The accessible, modular and visual interface, paired with the various possibilities of interaction among creative stakeholders, is allowing us to maintain a high level of richness, fluidity and dynamism in our day to day creative process, while we’re all sitting at home.” 

Despite remote work, the platform truly digitalizes the design wall and makes in interactive even remotely. Salomon multiplied the frequency of connection to the tool since the beginning of the stay-at-home order by 8. Decision making becomes optimal, mobilizing the stakeholders is reinforced to continue to meet innovation objectives.

About Mushin
Founded in 2013 in France, Mushin is the first platform for visual sharing and chat for product teams. Its concept revolves entirely around the founders’ conviction: « when we speak about products we must speak visually”. The platform is more than ever an opportunity to be seized by companies that need to work on their future collections.

Alors que la moitié de la population mondiale pense à se dé-confiner pour reprendre le travail, comment développer des produits à distance, répondre à la problématique de non-déplacement, ou encore organiser des tables rondes consommateurs ? Mushin a adapté sa plateforme digitale à la co-création : mobile et web, personnalisables en quelques heures, ce support digital au processus créatif place le visuel au coeur de la discussion produit sans présentiel des acteurs.

Préparer la période post-confinement
Parce que les modes de travail à l’avenir vont être différents mais que les enjeux de création produits restent les mêmes, Mushin offre l’opportunité d’avancer autrement.
Quand les déplacements sont limités, la digitalisation de nos rencontres et de nos idées est une opportunité pour accélérer la reprise. Mushin facilite ce processus en répondant aux besoins de se coordonner et de rester connectés en simplifiant la collecte et le partage d’informations visuelles.

C’est ce que fait Salomon avec Mushin !
« Quand le bureau n’est plus le centre de vie, Mushin permet de recréer le lien autour du produit et d’avancer efficacement dans la construction de l’offre ».
David Farcot, Directeur du Design WSE de Salomon est convaincu. « L’interface visuelle très accessible et modulaire a permis de recréer la richesse et la dynamique des échanges dont nous profitons naturellement dans nos studios de création ».

Malgré les conditions de télétravail, la plateforme digitalise le « mur d’images » et rend l’interaction en direct possible à distance.
Salomon a d’ailleurs multiplié par 8 la fréquence de connexion à l’outil depuis le confinement. La prise de décision est optimale, la mobilisation des acteurs est renforcée pour continuer à garantir les objectifs d’innovation.

A propos de Mushin

Today, the need for creating innovative product is stronger than ever. Doing business across several countries, hiring people half a world away, these kinds of practices aren’t problems anymore. The success of an organization is rather how much they can differenciate themselves from the competition.

From trends analysis to product launch on the market, the upstream phase of the creative process can be confronted to impediments. Collaborative tools aim to help teams in reducing these obstacles.

Upstream creative process cycle for product conception

Here are 5 key ingredients to add to your product conception recipe :

  1. “Creativity” doesn’t mean “to be original”

A so called creative product has to be innovative and original. But not only.

Get the answer to client’s expectations is crucial within the upstream creative process. A product that looks awesome but which is useless will never last long. Its lifecycle won’t last more than the chocolate bar we’ve just hidden in our bedside table.

  1. To be consistent with the company’s DNA

Blackberry Inc. is a well-known example that caracterizes this issue. The Canadian smartphone producer fought against the competition, forgetting its own identity. When we conceive goods that are not aligned with the firm’s values and culture, they won’t get a chance to survive. Respecting the enterprise’s DNA during the creative process assures the product’s success. Chances to catch those who are loyal to the brand image and to the firm’s messages delivery are higher.

  1. Internal and external inspirations combination

Feeding ourselves from competition moves and checking company’s archives allow teams to get inspired from their current operational domain. Yet the most famous inventions of our history didn’t come from our working environment. Daily details, travels, hobbies and many other things,  are precious sources of our imagination.

  1. The fear of sharing

Although they might be brilliant from a personal point of view, ideas might not get the same success to other co-workers. Sharing a drawing can help better improving it. This statement doesn’t mean that individual reflexion period should be blamed. On the contrary, it gives time to creative people to grow their ideas before sharing them to the rest of the team.

  1. Some explanations ?

Saying “a stylist is inspired” is not very surprising. But it’s essential for him/her to argument and justify his/her thoughts. These elements help to give a clear perception to others of what the stylist’s creation really looks like. Have a good understanding of the product ensures better results at the end.

Did you know Mushin makes sure all these ingredients are included in the creative conception recipe? Visual gathering and sharing are now facilitated. Users make their ideas growing individually before getting feedbacks from the others.
