Allow your partners to post responses on IdeaStorm
Sure anyone can post on IdeaStorm and claim to be from a partner company. So why not supply verified representatives from your partner companies with a special tag next to their name like Dell employees get? Take for instance Chris @ AMD who may or may not actually be with the AMD. If he IS from AMD give him a tag next to his name of "AMD"instead of "Dell". I'm sure that your partners would enjoy the extra input from us as much as we would love to talk to them.
