Pros: Followed Kaban Lean Method

Cons: Basic Level is too limited compared to other solution providers

Overall: BUYER BEWARE: Do not pay for the full year as you do not get your money back if you are unhappy with the product or support. We tested the product a few months and then elected to use the basic product as it appeared to meet our needs. We paid for the full year but after a few months on the basic platform we decided to move to a different solution with more features at a lower cost. I asked for a refund of the unused months and I was told no.

Recommendations to other buyers: Basic level should include collaboration features and reporting is lacking.

Lots of features, but too complicated

Pros: Customization options, features, flexibility

Cons: Technical issues, inability to unsubscribe from emails, unhelpful customer service, tedious process for tasks

Overall: We tried out LeanKit for a short period and while it has a variety of customization options and features, it's too tedious and buggy for marketing purposes

Recommendations to other buyers: This might be a good software solution for programmers and other industries, but it's not ideal for marketing.

Pros: Easy to set up. Good value. Lots of templates to get started with. Easy to use.

Cons: Maybe the color palette is not the greatest?

Overall: There's a lot of different attempts at Kanban online, and this is the one I had been looking for. The problem with Kanban can be that you get too much information in one area at a time real fast, and it stops being useful. Leankit manages to allow you to capture as much info as you want, while still remaining, well, lean. It really is a great experience from top to bottom.

Recommendations to other buyers: Pay for the upgrade version, it's completely worth it.

Pros: Easy to use, rich functionality, good webinars and tools to help the team get on-board.

Cons: Even though there are lots of integrations available - seems there's still way to go. Inherent scrum supporting tools like burndown chart are not intuitive to use from day 1.

Overall: We're still in the process of getting on top of our work plans, but already we feel the benefits of organizing a tremendous amount of tasks using this tool

Comments: Leankit provides Kanban visual work management that scales for the enterprise. Trello was only usable for a team of 10 - with Leankit we scaled to a team of 100

Pros: Ease of use.

Cons: Haven't found on yet.

Overall: Been looking for a software package to help manage our workflow and optimize our project process. I evaluated several platforms and even tried a few others. The biggest adoption hurdle with other platforms has been ease of use, but LeanKits user-friendly interface and project management philosophy removed that hurdle for my organization. We now have buy-in from the whole organization on a predictable process and a way to track that process. I know that big things are coming as we start to track more and more projects over the coming months and then use LeanKits reporting functions to make big process improvements.
