Net Promoter Score Definition

Net Promoter Score (NPS) is an attempt to distill into a single value, what users of a company’s products think of it. Users are asked a single question along the lines of “How likely are you to recommend this product to a friend or coworker?”, which is the question used by the UserStories.com website. A product’s NPS is determined by subtracting the percentage of people unlikely to recommend the product (0-6) from those likely to do so (9-10). A more detailed description including examples is also available.

VP Product & Marketing

What's very interesting about Planbox is that any type of team can use it. It's great for development teams, but also very useful for agencies and any type of small team who wishes to be more agile in their way of working. Planbox does not impose a agile method, but any agile method, such as Scrum, can be practiced with Planbox. The tool also allows for great flexibility in order for teams to get more efficient. I use it to manage my work and all the things I need to do outside of work. Since I've been using this great tool, nothing ever falls out of the cracks and things get done on time.

Very well thought out planning tool for small to medium sized teams

Alan Wizemann rated it a 9 on (August 10, 2011)

Although it lacks great documentation gathering features and traditional requirement document management PlanBox is second to none on its ease of use around resource planning, burn-down tracking and time management. It takes a bit to figure out the difference between each area of the app, so watch the videos and read the docs, once you get it, its magic.

Loving it

Joshua Fialkoff rated it a 9 on (August 10, 2011)

We recently transitioned all of our projects from Pivotal Tracker to Planbox and have been very happy so far. The Planbox team has been incredibly responsive and appear to be working hard to perfect their product and add new features. Looking forward to watching Planbox evolve.

superb tool for group project management

Nick M rated it a 10 on (August 10, 2011)

If you are looking for an agile, web based project tracker, planbox is currently the best. It's reliable, flexible and easy to use, and the devs are amazingly responsive and helpful. I tried pivotal tracker before switching to planbox- planbox's interface and workflow just feels better. Do yourself (and your team) a favor and give planbox a try.

Great project management tool

J Parillo rated it a 10 on (August 10, 2011)

Planbox is a great agile tool and let's you organize and prioritize your work with just a few mouse clicks. I recommend this to anyone who is looking for an online management tool for their projects!

Excellent and flexible project management

David Szilagyi rated it a 10 on (August 10, 2011)

Our team uses Planbox every day to manage our projects. It's a great product/service without any hassle. We use it between project managers, designers and developers in the office and off-site as well. The user interface is quite intuitive and logical so you don't have to learn it. Just start using it and everything will be there for you. Projects, initiatives, tasks, files and comments are just a few clicks away. The best thing is that you don't have to configure every detail, it is not bloated and just does the job. The Planbox team is devoted, listens to feature request and very flexible. Planbox makes our development more agile, our workflow smoother and our life easier.

Using Planbox as a full management tool for developers and other teams

Michael Jennison rated it a 10 on (August 10, 2011)

A few months ago we committed to our development team that we would implement a hybrid-scrum system within our company to help us better manage projects. We converted from basically an issue tracking-centric approach that was using Jira to Planbox. We chose planbox because of the simplicity and user friendly interface. The basic routine is that we use the (backlog / current / next) item system and iterations in a weekly meeting on screen and screenshare with local and remote members. During the week, all members sync, and then go off to do their work. They use Planbox to coordinate and as a central information clearinghouse. Because it is so simple, everyone is actually using it, and little training is required. Our system is not perfect, but it is much better than any alternative that we have tried. People are actually using it, and seeing benefit, so we count it as a huge success. We subsequently expanded using Planbox from only development team to the production and admin teams also.

An Agile tool for Agile projects

Simon Bélanger rated it a 10 on (August 09, 2011)

Planbox is a true Agile tool : lightweight, simple, easy to use, efficient, straight to the point. Everythig is right there or a few clicks away. It allows us to manage our projects, instead of managing project management.

A user-friendly system

Katie Knopp rated it a 10 on (August 09, 2011)

Planbox has really helped our small team work together as one. With offices in both Montreal and Toronto we found it difficult to stay on top of all projects, but using Planbox made things easier and was and still is a great solution! Furthermore, the support team at Planbox is great, they are constantly modifying their system to suit the needs of our business! Everyone at our company has been very happy with our Planbox experience.

A lightweight Agile management tool

Vincent Lamanna rated it a 10 on (August 09, 2011)

We started using Planbox to management our projects at CakeMail about 1 year ago. I was really impressed to see the adoption from our development team. Everyone were using it and they were up and running with the tool in no time. Planbox is not the typical management software. It's lightweight yet it has all the features a project manager needs. And, because it's simple, everyone on the development team enjoy using it!

Simple and easy to use

Al Mtl rated it a 10 on (August 09, 2011)

I've used Basecamp, Fogbugz, JIRA/Confluence in the past, and have now moved to Planbox for tracking my work. Planbox is lightweight and simple to use, and it fits with how I work. And I know the development team is responsive if I need training or questions. I would definitely recommend this app if you use SCRUM, like to easily collaborate with teammates and like using a single dashboard that's flexible yet full-featured. Also check out Pivotal Tracker.

Great Agile Mgmt tool

Ben Arch rated it a 10 on (August 08, 2011)

This product has really helped the productivity of our team. Everyone is just more in synced, I strongly recommend Planbox for any developing team.

Great Agile Project Management Tool!

Alex Gauthier rated it a 10 on (August 08, 2011)

Planbox is a great product that we use to manage all phases of the development of our web-apps - using Agile methods. It's intuitive, powerful and has all the features we needed. We looked at a lot of tools before choosing this one and I highly recommend it.
