Solid and powerful implementation of the Kanban philosphy

SwiftKanban helped us to live the Kanban philosphy in the company with staff and teams that is distributed across different locations.

Pros

I love the ability to link cards to each other across boards and track their overall progress as well as the ability to identify problems in a large project. I think SwiftKanban offers a very clear and straight-forward implementation of the Kanban philosophy with swim lanes, WIP limits, blocking reason tracking etc.

Cons

Some things need some polishing like Analytics (CFD charts across *all* lanes of a board), there are some minor issues with special characters and HTML tags in card descriptions and other minor bugs.

Alternatives Considered

Kanbanize, Kanban Tool and KanbanFlow

Reasons for Switching to SwiftKanban

SwiftKanban offers cross-board functionality without being overly expensive.

Digite's Swift Kanban: There is none other like it

Swift is without a doubt the most effective way to visually manage, track and report on the work that your team is or will be engaged in. The UI is extremely intuitive and user friendly, providing one less thing for teams to worry about when implementing Kanban systems. The included help files in the form of a knowledge database provide the most up to date information and comprehensive step by step walkthroughs of the functionality of Swift. The tool has been accepted by and is the preferred standard for teams implementing Kanban, regardless of the nature of their work within the organization, and continues to increase its user base on a weekly basis

Pros

With Swift, users have the ability to create a board that is fit for purpose, collect data systemically about the work that resides on the board and work in a truly collaborative environment to deliver to solutions for their customers. The pricing structure works very well for our organization; we draw from a pool of licenses and if we need more, we simply request them and add that number to the overall pool. The cloud hosting configuration is very solid and the requested details about it from Digite have immediately put to rest any concerns our security folks had about a cloud based app and its ability to protect the data that is stored in the tool via the cards. Digite's technical support team is second to none in terms of response time, implementing any bug fixes and new functionality and level of customer support.

Cons

Swift has trouble at times from a performance perspective with WebEx. We have noticed that participants in a WebEx meeting sometimes experience slowness with the tool when making modifications to their boards.

PO's review on SwiftKanban

SwiftKanban is allright for managing a small team's work in a visual way and organize the efforts of developers. The metrics generated by it are, however, the best funcionality of the software.

Pros

I like how SwiftKanban counts time and generates it's own metrics about the development's progress. Having multiple boards is also a good thing, specially since it allows cards to be linked between boards, which makes work among different teams easier.

Cons

The hot reload everytime something is changed in a page (converting a card, creating a lane), the preservation of the previous board when clicking a link of another one, the non-existance of bug cards of different costs for bugs found mid-development, in QA and in production.

People over tools

Great - the vendor is interested in feedback and experiences. They are transparent about about their enhancement roadmap, quickly resolve questions, introduce with quick training any new features and maintain their support archive/Help site very well.

Pros

Swift gives people many alternative options to manage work - it doesn't 'make you' track work in a particular way. First, the application is stable even with multiple application windows open at the same time. Second, there are a thoughtful limitation of options and enforcement of hierarchical card rules (at the application level) that result in not imposing wasteful admin overhead of non-applicable data entry for features that do not apply to the individual team. The individual team can choose to activate many alternate restrictions to support individual process controls that are more valuable, such as work in process limits, parent/child card relationships, list selections instead of free-text. Swift itself does not get in the way of people using the application.

Cons

There are not things I particularly dislike.

Very good but it can improve

In general, SWK helps me to control the team, define roles and priorities, and that's a big difference in the market.

Pros

Without a doubt, the card movement part is exceptional. The visibility format, the ease of writing the details is very intuitive.

Cons

I still believe that the application could have a better analitycs part. The UX of this part is very bad, the configuration of reports is not good. The user is lost.
