Planbox, a cloud-based agile project management solution vendor, has merged with BrainBank Software the pioneering platform for cloud based collaborative innovation management. The combined company will be called Planbox. BrainBank and its Idealink product will be marketed as Planbox Innovate and the existing solution as Planbox Agile. Ludwig Melik currently CEO of BrainBank will be the CEO of the combined company which will continue the development and support for both Planbox and BrainBank products – all existing agreements and support arrangements remain unchanged.
“The combined offering will allow us to benefit our mutual clients since innovation and agile project management go hand in hand,” said Ludwig Melik, CEO of Planbox. “Being agile provides the flexibility that organizations need to bring innovation to fruition by iterating and experimenting on explored and developed ideas.”
Most agile project management solutions have created deep functionality that limits their appeal only to software development shops with complex requirements. Likewise, innovation management providers lack support for effective continuous experimentation customers require to capitalize on their innovation programs with launching successful agile projects. The combination of these two totally complementary offerings provides a compelling solution that all users can benefit from.
