09/08/2020

Users can now share their innovation activities in Microsoft Teams so they never miss out on new challenges and ideas

Online PR News – 08-September-2020 – Portsmouth – Wilmington, Delaware — Planbox, a pioneer in cloud-based AI-powered agile innovation management solutions, today announced its integration with Microsoft Teams, Microsoft’s leading communication and collaboration platform that combines workplace chat, video meetings and file collaboration and storage.

The integration enables users to easily share and collaborate on their ideas and challenges directly from Microsoft Teams, therefore increasing user participation in enterprise-wide innovation activities, and improving innovation program visibility and accessibility. Below are examples of what users can achieve with Teams:

Setup business rules that trigger messages to be sent to the Teams channel to notify users when new ideas are posted and receive votes, comments and status updates, or when challenges begin and end, get status updates, and much more.

Set up a general innovation channel or create challenge specific channels to share innovation-related updates, events and activities.

Using a powerful yet easy to use business rule engine, innovators receive automatic notifications and regular updates based on a set of conditions that keep your team engaged and informed of your innovation program activities and results.

“Combining collaboration with innovation is a business imperative for digital transformation leaders looking to maximize their organization’s collaborative efforts in response to pressing challenges,” said Liam Snape, Innovation Consultant at Planbox. “By seamlessly weaving Planbox into your teamwork hub, you’re equipping your employees with an engaging and indispensable tool for them to continuously share, develop and collaborate on the best insights and concepts they have to offer.”
