Effective project management is critical for many organizations. Businesses need tools to allocate resources, monitor progress, track costs, and project deadlines. Project teams also need to be able to share information and collaborate on files necessary to complete the project. A new partnership between LiquidPlanner and Box provides customers with both---integrating project management with data sharing and collaboration.

Box is an established brand among cloud data storage and file sharing services--particularly for business use--but you may not be familiar with LiquidPlanner. LiquidPlanner is a cloud-based project management solution. LiquidPlanner uses innovative techniques to simplify project management and help organizations make the most efficient use of the resources at their disposal.

LiquidPlanner uses some unique techniques to help project managers plan and manage projects more effectively. LiquidPlanner lets you create best or worst case scenarios to get a range of the costs or time involved in a project. It also assigns task deadlines as a range rather than a specific date. It may seem less precise, but it's a more accurate reflection of the dynamic changes that can affect a project.

LiquidPlanner has its own communication and collaboration tools as well. Project teams can comment with @replies, and receive email notifications when new messages are available. It also has calendar integration, and allows project managers or team members to create new tasks via email.

Now, take all of that and merge it with the robust data storage, file sharing, and real-time collaboration capabilities of Box, and you have a solid platform for getting things done.
