Planbox Launches Innovation for SharePoint

Planbox, a pioneer in cloud-based AI-powered agile innovation management solutions, today announced its integration with SharePoint, Microsoft’s industry-leading platform for intranet development, secure document storage and team collaboration. This integration leverages SharePoint’s user authentication system and web part framework to securely embed an enterprise-grade innovation management system in SharePoint.

The integration does not require users to separately log into Planbox or leave their SharePoint workspaces, resulting in improved innovation program visibility and accessibility, increased user engagement and the opportunity to capture and collaborate on great ideas in real-time. Below are some examples of what users can achieve by integrating Planbox with SharePoint:

The Planbox innovation management platform can be fully configured to your requirements and managed within your existing ecosystem without any custom development.

Promote innovation activities (e.g. new challenges, idea evaluation and selection) in your SharePoint powered portals.
Communicate news, updates, leaderboards (e.g. trending ideas, top contributors) and dashboards about your innovation program and success using your SharePoint intranet.

“Allowing SharePoint users to effortlessly participate in companywide innovation campaigns from within their SharePoint workspace is a great opportunity for organizations to encourage and maximize purpose-driven collaboration. By seamlessly embedding innovation into their everyday routines, users will be able to continue doing what they do best, the way they’re used to doing it while simultaneously collaborating to develop the best ideas,” said Liam Snape, Solution Consultant at Planbox.
