    Specific scenarios where Communifire would be well suited to an organisation, would be companies that are people focused and committed to frequent and open communication channels from both the top-down and bottom-up. It also would suit organizations that are committed to providing the staff opportunities to collaborate, share and actively contribute to company initiatives and planning. If these aren't elements of your organization's culture, the system would still work for you or those companies who just want to push information out and have an effective intranet. Communifire would cater to these scenarios just as well and is more than capable of providing that type of simple solution.

    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

    Axero Solutions

    • Communifire allows people to connect easily through instant chat and messaging. It works similarly to other social media platforms like Facebook so its not hard to learn.
    • Communifire makes it easy to share news and events with our community and the presentation of this information looks very professional.
    • I found Communifire quite easy to configure to our individual needs. There were a lot of options to turn things on or off. This was important to us because in some areas of our community we wanted to allow our contractors many features and in other areas we wanted to really limit what was on offer.
    • We had a big list of things we needed a platform to do. Communifire ticked all the boxes.

    • 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

    Axero Solutions

    • Some UX issues that could be improved
    • Some architecture decisions don't make complete sense to me (though that's just one man's opinion)

    • Kanban does not show the task or story clearly. You have to open the project separately to view the details of the project.
    • Kanban gives a higher level project management view but it lacks customization and personal settings features.
    • I would like to see Kanban provide mobile access to their tool, data, and board. This would be very useful for all companies and provide an increase in efficiency and productivity.

      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.

      Usability

      Axero Solutions

      This rating has a caveat - there is always room for improvement, and this team gets it. You always learn from customers how to do things better and easier, so it is a constant learning of how people use the site. Although the search engine is exceptional, most people do not use it as their first line of research. Much of the usability has to do with layout - and is not just a software usability item, so the rating is severely dependent up on the layout/options you choose for your usage. And their team will do anything in their power to get the results and layout you want. The areas that need improvement - and acknowledged by the team - are the administrative tools. There are a ton of options, and it takes a little to learn some of those. For most people, however, this won't be an issue, because the support team will always help you. This is always the case with more power. If there were fewer options it would no doubt be easier, but they give you the keys to all of the cars in the lot; so a little more to learn.

      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.

      Alternatives Considered

      Axero Solutions

      We selected Communifire for the excellent sales support, strong feature set and quick set up time. We were able to get started immediately and build out features as need required which led to faster execution and higher adoption rates among our team.

      We've only tried JIRA Agile and KanbanFlow before. Kanban Tool was the one that our team actually liked and enjoyed working with. Also - it's been much easier to get started with and to understand than some of the other two (JIRA in particular). Although JIRA has many more features that we would have possibly used, the user feedback on it was so poor we were afraid that the negativity would create time wasted and less "job satisfaction" amongst the team.

      Return on Investment

      Axero Solutions

      • We are still building out features of the platform but with implemention of paid features by members, we will be able to cover our operating cost of the platform.

      • Better communication and organization of ongoing projects.
      • We are a very small team, with many areas to work on. Having everything in one system gives us a lot of visibility.
      • Greatly reduced costs from using other tools that were much more expensive.
