A Great Resource for Our Managers

Being the Process Engineer for 3 companies, helped for me to realize that we needed a common repository for our "action items". When I researched Planbox, it was with just a couple of us as users. Then we expanded to 10 users, and now we are rapidly approaching 50 users!

It's easy to train towards, and the extremely helpful support staff has been paramount with the successful roll-out of this application to our managers.

Keeps my clients and dev team happy.

In my past 14 years in software industry, I have used various PM tools. By far, PlanBox has been the best tool for my company. I run a software consulting company called Novelty Technology (www.noveltytechnology.com) and I needed a tool to manage all my clients, projects and my [offshore] development team. Because of diverse people with diverse technical background that were involved in my projects, I needed that perfect tool that was simple to use, agile and easy to collaborate. I signed up for PlanBox two years ago and both my clients and dev team love it. I stated out with 5 users and now I have 30+ users. It has saved time and doubled my productivity.

Powerful and intuitive Agile PM application

Planbox is an agile project management tool that is simple to use and very powerful. This isn't your typical agile tool, it does a lot more. Believe me, we have been using planbox for several months now and we will never go back to what we used to do before planbox.

Easy to use even as agile beginners, support is incredible. Great information is provided to get things started. It was easy for our team to get on board and use the tool and the feedback from my teams have been great. This makes it much easier for us to work together as a team.

If you have a team managing multiple projects this is definitely a tool worth considering. The tool easily helps you plan and manage several iterations. My team loves using it and it has improved our productivity. It has improved the way we work and we will continue to use planbox.

Overall this is a fantastic product with great features and support. I highly recommend it!

WORK MANAGEMENT FOR EVERYONE

Planbox supports all popular agile work methods such as SCRUM, Kanban and XP.

    RESOURCE MANAGEMENT

    COLLABORATION AND FEEDBACK

  • With Planbox Work, teams can collaborate, communicate and interact during all phases of a project. Common resources (emails, documents, files, etc) are both organized and accessible. Planbox offers a feedback widget that embeds on any customer facing site. User feedback is gathered in Planbox and can be linked to work items.

    AGILE ACROSS THE BOARD

  • Unlike most agile tools, Planbox is suitable for all types of teams; not only software and IT teams. Furthermore, Planbox caters to all individuals of an organization. Companies can therefore become entirely agile while all their departments and teams work collaboratively.

    PORTFOLIO MANAGEMENT

  • The architecture of Planbox is laid out in four levels - initiatives, projects, items and tasks. This flexibility coupled with customizable reporting options allows for easy management of an entire portfolio of projects.

    CUSTOMIZABLE SOLUTION

  • Planbox lets teams turn on the features they need to work efficiently. The Planbox API offers many ways of extending the tool’s functionality and can be used to build custom apps and perform seamless integrations with other systems and tools.
