KMWorld Award Recognizes the Need for Enterprises to Add Innovation Management Capability As a Core Business Function.

Planbox, the leading provider of AI-Powered Agile Work Innovation Solutions, today announced its Innovation Management solution has been named a KMWorld 2018 Trend-Setting Product.

The KMWorld editorial staff awards the Trend-Setting Product designation to solutions that it finds are designed, developed and perfectly timed to fill a need in the marketplace before users are even aware that such functionality and flexibility have been missing.

For organizations looking to find creative solutions to very tough challenges, from those in ultra competitive to highly regulated industries, Planbox addresses the critical factors in identifying key focus areas, generating creative ideas and developing new concepts. With Planbox, innovation becomes a part of the organization’s core business processes, fostering a culture of continuous innovation.

“Planbox establishes a secure system of record for innovation, and provides the controls necessary for a large number of internal and external users to collaborate on generating and developing new ideas, concepts and solutions,” said Gilbert Maroun, Director of Professional Services at Planbox. “The KMWorld Trend-Setting Product designation recognizes the need for organizations to continuously innovate, not just as a one off activity when their back is against the wall.”

“In designating products to KMWorld’s 2018 list of Trend-Setting Products, we looked for solutions that are inventive as well as utilitarian, that break new ground, and that help organizations achieve their knowledge management goals and the digital transformation they need to thrive,” said Tom Hogan, group publisher of KMWorld. “The offerings on our list result from innovation, imagination, and evolution. They reflect the ingenuity of the developers and the diversity of invention.”
