Pros: It allows you to create a completely custom board and stays true to its KanBan nature. It easily allows you to see who's working on what and when a task has been sent off to you.

Cons: It sends you a ridiculous number of emails. Every little change made to a task or board is emailed to you - even if you did it. I understand some notification via email is possibly necessary, however, you should have the capability to subscribe to only certain types of email notifications.

Pros: Lean kit is user friendly and easy to follow. The "card" format is visually pleasing and functional.

Cons: I would like to see more detail, possibly behind the cards and possibly varied formats for those that prefer a more list like structure

Overall: It is an additional tool for our staff to use while tracking action items.

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.

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

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.

Comments: We have been using LeanKit for more than three years at LateRooms. What started as a tool that was used by our product teams to track development work and releases has also been adopted by other teams within the business, for example I use the software to track procurement projects and the HR team use it to track the recruitment process.

Pros: Ease of use Integration with 3rd party apps (ZenDesk, Atlassian)

Awesome for multifaceted swimlanes

Mar 28, 2014
5/5
Overall

Comments: 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.

Pros: + Intuitive interface once you get used to it. + Very flexible + Flood your favorite problem children with email tasks until they scream (or create a spam filter) + Multiple swimlanes & sublanes are mind blowing. Seriously.... Experiment!

Cons: - Learning curve (but this is not that big of a deal.. trust me..) - tags are not selectable

chaos to simplicity

Comments: 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.
