Abstract

Our design department is indeed very happy with Abstract to solve their issues with regard to versioning and collaboration, etc. The admin side of the program is not that great. It's easy and simple, however, it would be nice to limit access more easily and maybe even link Abstract with our directory. The flexibility for accessing the work designers do can't be beaten!

Kanban Tool

Kanban is well suited for a fast-paced working environment for larger teams who want continuous communication with users. Kanban is good for rapid development and daily meetings for updates and statuses. Kanban is less suited for smaller teams or groups who don't require collaboration and constant communication with involved users. Kanban is time-consuming and it takes additional effort outside of your regular work to maintain and manage the tool.

Pros

Abstract

  • Branch management for design files.
  • Good collaborative features like comments and sharing.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Kanban Tool

  • It provides a good basic overview of where tasks are on a timeline (particularly helpful for a pull-based approach).
  • It provides a good collaborative space to have multiple folks commenting on multiple tasks.
  • It does a good job of managing very basic visual elements of an agile development cycle.

Cons

Abstract

  • Frequent bugs between Abstract and Sketch.
  • Takes a lot of processing power and battery.

Kanban Tool

  • Some of the boards we have could do with more than 22 card colors, although it is enough for most projects.
  • Really looking forward to the iOS application, which is said to be coming in 2015.

We are more likely than not to renew our use of Kanban. Even with its limits, it still is a good product that fulfills our needs.

Again, this is a strong tool for software teams using Agile that are distributed across multiple geographies. It can be good for co-located teams too, but there are better platforms on the market like JIRA that provide a more built-out story.

This is the best tool I had a chance to work with- since I started to use it I saved a lot of time and I made my work go smoothly.

Alternatives Considered

Abstract

There are very few tools that compete with Abstract right now. I would say none of them are even close to this yet.

Kanban Tool

Kanban is superior to Scrum and AGILE because it can visually organize all your projects and data into one board. Kanban integrates with JIRA which digs deeper into the project data when it is needed. By integrating Kanban with JIRA, you don't need any other tool for project management that is effective for both the business and the development teams. Kanban is recommended for any user groups who wish to increase their efficiency to deliver products, transparency for all users and on-time productivity.

Return on Investment

Abstract

  • Saves time on file management
  • Keeps old, archived work
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Kanban Tool

  • Less man hours needed to perform our standard tasks.
  • More jobs done before deadline than ever before.
  • When compared to the other service we used, the pricing is very good. We didn't really calculate the ROI, but we have made significant savings, when compared to the previous solution applied.
