Designed for the practical implementation of Kanban, LeanKit is a highly flexible platform that lets you visualize your process, collaborate more effectively and identify opportunities for improvement. LeanKit provides a real-time, shared understanding of activity and status, making it the ideal tool to manage both project and process work.

Using cards on a virtual whiteboard, LeanKit harnesses the innate human preference for consuming information visually. By creating a visual model of your team’s work and workflow, you gain insight that’s otherwise lost in list-based tools. Our intuitive software provides a single, consolidated view of the work that teams can easily access and interact with across multiple locations, devices and systems.

Awesome for multifaceted swimlanes

Kelly Hair28th of March 17:21

I can't say enough good things about Leankit. Only issue was that it took me an hour to grasp the UI with splitting horizontal & vertical swimlanes. However, once I had that down, I saw the power of being able to visually represent what I wanted to with the tool. Granted, I'm not using it for kanban per say, I'm using it for customer/prospect management primarily. In a single pane of glass, I was able to represented 30 different customers/prospects, where these customers stood relative to our core values & categories for developing the market. I know this is not software development... pivoting a bit here... Big proponent of this tool. Glad my company forced it upon me because it's a huge improvement over the rather simple, but go to tool, Trello. Trello still has its place but it seems arcane all of a sudden.

chaos to simplicity

This application allows you to move from a chaotic approach to customer service to an organised one. Links to JIRA as well so it actually compliments rather than replaces it.
