Planbox, the pioneering provider of cloud-based Agile Work Innovation solutions, today announced the availability of the first innovation management solution to integrate with Facebook private groups. The platform allows organizations to build on the ideas and discussions that start in Facebook. Facebook private group posts and comments are collected and mapped into Planbox Innovate’s workflow-driven idea management system where the ideas can be further discussed, reviewed, evaluated, and developed by the same Facebook private group user community and your team members as well as other subject matter experts.
“Planbox believes that Ideas should come from anywhere people work and play. While Planbox offers a powerful, gamified, workflow-driven idea management solution with a dynamic innovation portal, we recognize that various employee groups may, on occasion or on a regular basis, be more comfortable and engaged in innovation-related conversations in other social tools”, said Karell Ste-Marie, CTO of Planbox. “Our strategy is to integrate with these collaboration tools for idea and conversation capture. The ideas and conversations collected in these social apps are imported into Planbox Innovate using backend synchronization processes so you can continue the innovation management process, identify the best ideas, develop the ones that meet your criteria and reward those who were engaged in and contributed to the fostering and developing of new ideas.”
“Planbox’s willingness to take on and successfully complete this integration reflects their dedication not only to their clients, but also to their own mission of fostering innovation. The integration with Facebook groups bridges the gap between convenience and creativity – we are able to effectively extend our ‘Idea Bank’ beyond the confines of a single platform, allowing employees to begin the innovation process on a platform familiar to all: Facebook. We have seen tremendous growth in employee engagement with the utilization of social media and look forward to using it in conjunction with Planbox’s innovation management tools.” stated Rick Yockelson, SVP, People and Administration, Hudson Group.
Planbox private group Facebook integration is powered by Planbox Innovate’s powerful backend cloud synchronization technology. By integrating Facebook private groups with Planbox, companies can extend the innovation process into their secured social media platforms.
