QUEBEC CITY and MONTREAL, Aug. 6, 2019 /CNW/ -- Planbox, a leading provider of cloud-based AI-Powered Agile Innovation Management solutions, today announced its partnership with the Royal Canadian Navy (RCN). A versatile, multipurpose and combat-capable naval force, the RCN will trial Planbox's AI-powered cloud-based agile innovation management solution as part of its innovation program.
"Through the PSPC Built in Canada Innovation Program, the RCN has partnered with Montreal-based Planbox to trial their innovation management solution. As a matching agency for this technology, access to this tool will support the RCN's focus on becoming a more agile, digitally-enabled organization," said Rear-Admiral Casper Donovan of the Director General Future Ship Capability.
Planbox will provide an innovation management platform through which the RCN's innovation program can gather insights from defined external data sources, and centralize key information in relation to specific problems it is solving, allowing it to accordingly leverage its technology experts to develop the appropriate solutions.
"Working with the Royal Canadian Navy has been an incredible experience as we have enabled them to strategically map out their innovation portfolio and define their targets," said Arthur Liberian, Senior Innovation Advisor at Planbox. "We have helped them significantly in their pursuit for tangible innovation results by giving them the ability to view strategic information about their innovation portfolio on demand, allowing them to identify their most impactful opportunities."
The RCN intends to use Planbox's powerful crowdsourcing capabilities to develop, evaluate, vet, rank and score ideas to help with its mission to improve conditions for investment, and enhance Canada's overall innovation performance.
"It is an absolute honor for both myself and the Planbox team to have this one-of-a-kind opportunity to help our brave men and women in the Navy accelerate their operational agility," said Ludwig Melik, CEO at Planbox.
