Planbox’s connected apps technology can significantly boost user engagement and productivity with the following capabilities:

  • Innovate anywhere, anytime: Empower users to share knowledge and participate in innovation activities while working with the tools your team uses every day — on any devices at any time of the day
  • Task automation, collaboration and reporting: Users can effortlessly streamline their workflows, automate routine tasks and facilitate the flow of information between applications of their choosing without coding or requiring developers to build custom integrations.
  • Automatic information discovery: Empower users with an Automatic Information Discovery module that seamlessly searches external and internal data sources, both public and private, on an ongoing basis to help users discover opportunities, uncover potential problems, identify key insights and find relevant information for a focus area through pattern analysis and machine learning.
