3. SwiftKanban connects you with your team using the most popular productivity/ office tools like Outlook, GSuite, and 1000s of others using Zapier, as well as with MS Teams and Slack! SwiftKanban supports over 60 popular enterprise-class tools such as TFS/ Azure DevOps, JIRA, CA Agile Central and many others. Use SwiftSync to visualize work across the organization!

4. Highly flexible Hierarchy Design for Portfolio and Program level Board design, unlimited levels of hierarchy, many-to-many relationships and child-to-parent progress reporting.

5. Power simulation via the unique Board Playback feature: Teams can watch their “Kanban Movie” and see in real time how their board and workflow performed over the last week/month/quarter or any review time period. Enables them to observe patterns, identify bottlenecks, sources of rework and resource loading. And helps them identify specific improvement opportunities.

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.

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.

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.

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.

No, didn't really feel like this would be a better solution than any other product - overall the features are the same and the customer support is mediocre - they don't take suggestions at all.
Pretty much quit using it after that.

Pros

does the basic features - allows for a simple (free) entry path to get started.

Cons

This is my largest complaint. you don't listen and actively reject suggestions for improvement.
My recommendation was persistent value rewards (think: S&H green stamps) that could be traded later for team pizza party and/or company swag, etc. I was told FLAT OUT by customer service that I should be ashamed for making such a ridiculous suggestion (no they didn't say that, they made me feel that way by their flat rejection). we talk a lot about user experience, but NEVER consider that customer service is a KEY part of that experience. it goes way beyond the interface.

Response from Digite

Hi Alan,

Thank you for your review and feedback. We are really grateful you took the time to respond and help us improve. Please be assured we will make efforts to ensure no future trial or actual user goes through the same experience. It is true that due to the high number of suggestions we get from our users, we cannot act on all of them, and we realize you understand that already. But it is equally important we take the time to review your feedback and suggestions and give you a fair hearing. If you are still open to spending a bit more time on this, we would love to better understand the situation and make amends. Thank you.
