Kanban Tool – Visual Project Management

ss-kanbantool
Project managers need to know exactly what’s going on with the projects they’re overseeing at all times, and Kanban Tool is an application that can aid in those efforts. The web-based solution helps to boost group performance with its visual project management features.

Kanban boards give organizations real-time visibility and accountability, enabling managers to optimize workflows and prevent bottlenecks. Create your own Kanban boards using Kanban Tool’s straightforward features, manually adding “cards“ and sorting those tasks into columns based on where they’re currently located within your workflow. Glancing at your Kanban board, you should be able to quickly see all the tasks awaiting approval, along with those that are currently being worked on and those that are already complete. Color-coded cards add an extra layer of organization, as do priority statuses and tags.

More than just an application for Kanban boards, Kanban Tool also offers online document storage, time tracking, and an analytics suite that managers can use to predict when jobs will be complete and measure the cycle time of various projects. Ultimately, Kanban Tool is a useful solution for managers who are looking for better ways to improve how their organizations function on a day-to-day basis.

Practical Uses:

  • Ensure your employees aren’t overscheduled
  • Collaborate with colleagues in real-time
  • Track the time you spend working on a new project

    Love the time tracking in Kanban Tool, looking at all the ‘done’ things on colorful graphs motivates me 😉

    Agile software worth recommending. It’s easy to use but you can do very complicated boards with it. It’s easy on the eye – love the interface. It’s free for personal use and cheaper than most similar software for companies.
