Best Kanban tool

2021-03-05

Pros

Friendly, Effective and Efficient UX/UI. Excellent features for tracking portfolio and projects(timelines, initiatives,tasks).

Cons

I would like to see the dependencies between different swimlanes in another visual view. I don't have something specific but it's not easy to distinct some dependencies when they lie on different swimlanes

Kanbanize revolutionized our process

2020-10-26

Our Estimating, BIM/CADD, Purchasing, Project Install, Warehouse, and Manpower departments all use Kanbanize to track their work processes.

Pros

What once was accomplished through emails and phone calls, is now accomplished with the click of a button. From design to installation and everywhere in between, projects are easily tracked in an easy to use and visually appealing Kanban board.

Cons

On first glance the software is simple and intuitive, but there is so much power in the analytics, business rules, Google sheet imports and third party integrations.

Great product!

2020-09-14

Great team, very supportive and interested in satisfying every client's personal/business needs. Well organized work, great job!

Pros

Easy to use and deal projects with, easy to follow tasks execution/status, clear and easy to follow communication.

Cons

Nothing I can think of at the moment, probably budgets can not be well tracked, but that is not the main concern of this particular product anyway.

Best Kanban tool

2018-10-22

Lots of task/cards, teams in different locations, lack of metrics and indicators, etc could make it really challenging.

Pros

There is very interesting mechanism for sharing information with 3-rd party stakeholders.

Cons

Pricing for small teams could be improved

Simple and helpful

2020-04-14

Kanbanize made a better organization possible to fulfill my tasks, especially for development projects.

Pros

Kanbanize allows in a very practical way to work with agile methods for project development/implementation.

Cons

Sometimes it's a little bit difficult to find an old card to review a project. As I work in an environment with more than 50 Kanbanize users, and we create separated pages by department, I sometimes waste a little time (5 to 10 minutes) to find the card.

We're using to coordinate the tasks in a 20 people team, with 6 sub teams with different expertises (Development, UX, SEO, SEM, CRM, Content).

Pros

The most interesting feature for my use, as a manager is the broad view, for many boards, simultaneously.

Cons

Kanbanize - a game-changer

2020-10-21

I would definitely recommend this product to anyone who wants to manage tasks, tickets and project features.

Pros

The lanes and the columns are highly customisable and can be organised to custom-suit the project. Each ticket can be colour-coded so one can immediately see their distribution.

Cons

It is a very complex software, and without proper training, one will not be able to utilise its full potential.

Digitalizing a heijunka panel

2020-06-09

We designed an assistant from scratch to fully cover the planning process of a plant for the manufacturing of phytosanitary products; from the acquisition of ERP production data to the information required at the loading port, through the digitization of the Heijunka panel with Kanbanize.

Pros

Then I had time to discover how can we manage some automation through the Policies, and when we need more, we had a very capable API to fill the gaps.

Cons

We had some problems with the API that also were solved in subsequent releases.

Cons

It's not free but it's worth it.

Best Kanban-Tool on the Market

2020-06-09

The tool helps generating more benefits, and apart all the cost that can be saved for reporting and admin tasks, the tool itself comes for a price which is less than half of the former provider.

Pros

The best of all features are the business rules though; with that the admnistration burden which we experienced as the No 1 reason for resistance is reduced to a minimum and the automation also helps the standardization of how work is executed and accelerates the engagement of all involved parties. And the best quality is the Kanbanize team itself, they are not only highly customer-oriented, but they realease new features on a monthly basis and evolve much faster (and robust) than any competitor.

Cons

The only point I can come up with is that it would be nice if we could fully hide swim lanes that are currently not of interest, like it can be done in excel.

Great tool for Kanban

2018-09-28

I have been using Kanbanize for personal and professional projects very well.

Pros

One of the thing that I liked most of Kanbanize is its simplicity and friendly way to use it. You don't need any (or almost any) help to start creating their Kanban boards. Indeed, it is so intuitive to build new swim lames and cards. Furthermore, Kanbanize always notify me about the new features as soon as they released them.

Cons

Kanbanize can add more metrics but my point of view is biased about helping managers to understand very well the power of using Lean metrics.

The Only Kanban Software I Recommend

2018-09-27

I like to describe Kanbanize as the Swiss Army Knife for IT leaders in mid-sized businesses. Since we at Xuviate started talking about it in our IT Leader Masterminds and 1-1 Coaching sessions so many individuals started playing with it and later adopted the software ... to the point where there is currently no other main-stream Kanban software that is regularly used by any of the IT leaders we interact with. This is both testament to the quality of the product as well as the ability of Kanbanize to stay ahead of what users need.

Pros

- The software is extremely flexible and supports almost any use-case - It is super easy for people to get started (even if they have never used Kanban before or are not in IT) - It is not just another Kanban tool and right from the start it is clear how Kanbanize (the company) is trying to change the way we run our businesses (e.g. by supporting and evangelising Portfolio Kanban) - The reporting engine is top-notch and provides both overview and many drill-down opportunities

Cons

Currently there is no easy way to show all tasks assigned to an individual and to properly prioritise daily workload. - No integration with their personal Kanban tool flow-e exists at the moment
