SAN FRANCISCO (PRWEB) April 17, 2018
upBOARD, Inc. announces the official launch of its beta software platform that provides teams and organizations with business best practices online templates, data analytics, collaboration tools, and visual dashboards.
The upBOARD software platform initially includes vertical market applications designed for business strategy, innovation management, change management, and software development. Each solution is outlined in greater detail below:
Whether you’re running a team, business unit, or entire enterprise, upBOARD’s Business Strategy Software Platform gives you a scalable solution for driving strategic success. Most strategy teams cobble together models, tools, and templates from a range of sources. People read books, create PowerPoint slides with the latest framework, and then piecemeal together a business strategy. It’s haphazard at best, takes a significant amount of time, and often results in a static document that’s outdated the moment it’s presented.
upBOARD guides your team through the specific steps needed to create and execute your business strategy. Using upBOARD’s Strategy Command Center, your business strategy becomes a living “board” that’s always on, always current, and always available for everyone to see. Our robust dashboards ensure your team is in synch on your most important metrics and action plans. upBOARD allows you to keep everyone aligned, hold fewer status meetings, and do more of the things that drive results.
upBOARD’s flexible Innovation Command Center software platform transforms your innovation process into a living “board” that’s always on and available for everyone to use and see. With your plans, process, and progress metrics in a single place, upBOARD allows you to assign and engage individuals and teams as owners of specific opportunities, metrics, and process steps to ensure accountability.
Whether you’re running an innovation department, R&D lab, or HR department focused on creating a culture of innovation, upBOARD’s Innovation Management Software Platform gives you a scalable solution for driving innovation. The Innovation Command Center is currently being used for everything from creating opportunity portfolios to developing new business cases, tracking products and services through the stage gate processes and engaging internal teams and external partners in the innovation process.
The Change Management Command Center delivers change management best practices and processes from the cloud. Unlike traditional project management software tools, upBOARD’s Change Management Command Center provides best practice tools, templates, and dashboards that instantly jump start your organizational change process – by giving you the plans, processes, and progress dashboards that keep your change program on track.
upBOARD’s Change Management Command Center software platform gives users change management best practices and processes, instantly out-of-the-box. We’ve integrated principles, tools, and templates from proven approaches to organizational change and transformation, from defining your vision and burning platform, to analyzing key stakeholders, to engaging the organization in real action planning and change.
upBOARD’s Software Development Command Center gives you a strategic, dashboard view of your software development process. Most approaches to software development revolve around project tools with limited opportunity to engage executives, teams and partners in a truly collaborative model that maps to strategy and tracks real-time results across development efforts. Software development managers piecemeal together tools like Jira, Trello, SharePoint, and others to create the ideal “development environment.”
upBOARD provides a strategic view of your engineering goals, a line of sight to your software development strategy, and a “collaborative dashboard” to engage teams and track real-time results. Using upBOARD, your software development process becomes a living “board” that’s always on, always current, and always available for everyone to see. upBOARD allows you to assign and engage teams to specific projects, metrics, and process steps. Keep everyone aligned around your development pipeline to accelerate alignment, decision-making and business growth.
upBOARD’s founders and team include serial entrepreneurs and industry experts with deep understanding of the challenges that organizations face in today’s disruptive world. With subject matter expertise in the fields of business strategy, innovation, business process management, and technology, upBOARD’s team has already secured several Fortune 1000 clients as part of its beta launch.
The company is currently privately held. The full launch of upBOARD’s platform will be announced later this year, including the upBOARD business best practices marketplace for business consultants, thought leaders, and developers.
