FAQ

How do I get started?
The simplest way to start using Orchidea is to sign up for a Free plan. The Free plan offers a risk-free and fast way to experience Orchidea. Create your new account and get started fast. The Free plan includes unlimited public channels, challenges & workshops, up to 15 members, and all the collaboration features. For more advanced idea management, you can upgrade to our Team, Business, Professional or Enterprise version any time.
Do I need licenses for all collaborators?
Nope! Orchidea makes collaboration easy. You can include participants to co-develop for free, as you only pay for the facilitators. Facilitators are users who facilitate workshops, and innovation challenges or manage ideas in channels. So members, guests and visitors are free! Even in the free version, you can include up to 15 members in the development.
What are proposals?
With Orchidea you can collect suggestions, ideas and invention disclosures, to name a few. To put it simply, we refer to all of these as proposals.
Are there special discounts for non-profits, educators, students, or the public sector?
Yes! We have special programs for educators, students, nonprofits, and the public sector. Please contact us for more information.
What are my payment options?
You can pay for your Team plan by credit card. In Business, Professional, and Enterprise plans, we offer flexible payment options by credit card or annual invoice.
How is my data secured?
We have respect for our customers and their data. Therefore information security is at the heart of Orchidea's day-to-day operations. Orchidea’s data security policy is aligned with ISO 27001 and has been developed together with the security experts of KPMG. The production environment of Orchidea 7 has been implemented together with our partner Nordcloud (IBM Company). Orchidea Azure subscription/resource setup has been implemented based on Nordcloud ACF (Azure Cloud Foundation) service.
Can I change my plan later?
You can change the plan at any moment. However, please note that we do not refund already paid charges.
What are facilitators, members, guests and visitors?
Orchidea has 4 user levels.
- Facilitators are the people who manage Orchidea workspace and can organize workshops, innovation challenges, and manage ideas in channels.
- Members are users of Orchidea who are registered and can participate in all activities and complete tasks assigned by managers. Members are typically collaborators within your company, with access to workspaces, challenges, and workshops according to your admin setup.
- Guests are registered users with ongoing access to individual workshops, challenges, channels, or ideas as clients, partners, or other members outside your organization.
- Visitors are one-time collaborators to a specific channel or challenge. Visitors don't need to register.
What is a workspace?
The workspace is home to all your innovation activities at Orchidea. All channels, innovation challenges and workshops are found here. Customers with an Enterprise plan can create multiple workspaces and move easily between them.
What is an active channel, challenge or workshop?
An active channel/challenge/workshop is one in which you can participate. Archived channels, challenges, or workshops are closed to new activity, but the data is retained and searchable.
Does Orchidea have a free trial?
Instead of a trial, you can explore Orchidea for as long as you like with the free version.
Are there any additional fees?
Apart from the monthly fees, there are no additional costs. All prices and fees are excluding VAT.
What can I do with Orchidea?
Orchidea is a versatile innovation tool that provides solutions for all innovation activities, from product development to employee suggestion programs and overall idea management. With Orchidea, you can organize always-open idea collection, brainstorming sessions or innovation challenges. Orchidea is focused on innovation engagement, so you can include all your relevant stakeholders in the collaboration with ease.
