Announcing Planview IdeaPlace’s Biggest Product Release Yet and New EVP of Sales

Published By Guest Blogger

Following on the heels of announcing the acquisition of Kindling and record growth in 2016 earlier this year, today Planview IdeaPlace announces its biggest product release to date plus a new addition to the team.

We’re serious when we say this release is big. How big? Try this on for size.

Planview IdeaPlace releases game-changing capabilities

Here are five of the new capabilities Planview IdeaPlace customers will have at their fingertips with the latest release:

  • A new REST API that allows customers to integrate their innovation pipeline and process in Planview IdeaPlace with software like project management software, ERP systems, and business intelligence tools
  • New innovation portfolio value tracking and reporting that enables Innovation teams to keep track of the business value of their innovation pipeline
  • Ability to track and report the projected business value – such as time, cost, revenue – of your innovation pipeline across all business units in one dashboard

Pull the best ideas from Planview IdeaPlace into a variety of technologies such as rapid prototyping software and concept development tools

Ability to accept ideas from any enterprise collaboration tool such as Slack, Jive, and Microsoft 365

“Our Spring release is our biggest ever and contains great features and functionality that allow our customers to extend the reach of their programs whilst continuing to strengthen valuation generation and tracking,” says Gareth Bradley, VP of Product Management at Planview IdeaPlace.

As Planview IdeaPlace continues to add game-changing capabilities to its software, customers are in a great position to drive significant transformation within their companies no matter what the use case is. This is exciting because it enables them to solve problems at scale, smash silos, and build a more collaborative environment that benefits everyone – employees, customers, you name it.

Now, on to the newest addition to the Planview IdeaPlace team.

Technology industry veteran Don Morrison joins the Planview IdeaPlace team

We’re absolutely thrilled to have Don Morrison join the Planview IdeaPlace team as Executive Vice President of Worldwide Sales.

Don is an industry veteran with over 20 years of not just experience but results. Prior to joining Planview IdeaPlace, he served as Senior Vice President of Sales at ForeSee, a market-leading Customer Experience Analytics software used by the global Fortune 500, where he delivered annual growth rates over 40%.

Don has also held executive positions with GMAC Commercial Finance and Compuware Corporation, and senior management positions with MascoTech, Inc., Coopers & Lybrand, and Deloitte & Touche.

Final thoughts

Scott Raskin, Planview IdeaPlace’s CEO, said it perfectly, “With the Spring 2017 release, we are extending our technology lead in the market. And with such a stellar executive as Don Morrison joining the Planview IdeaPlace executive team to lead worldwide sales, we are poised to grow even faster.”

2017 is off to a great start. We have plenty more in store for Planview IdeaPlace customers that will be unveiled as the year progresses.
