    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.

    MangoApps

    MangoApps is well suited to enable interactions between colleagues located in distant places, if the people have the right culture, and are already demanding this type of feature. If the whole company is not ready to embrace this culture, MangoApps is missing a little something to encourage the refractory to join the party. And with this type of tool, we only really benefit from the tool's value when a large number of users participate.

    Pros

    Shore Labs

    • 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.

    MangoApps

    • MangoApps provide a large number of options to interact within a community. People can post updates, ask questions, create polls, quizzes, wiki, surveys, chats, or forms.
    • The Web interface is a modern application (Facebook inspired). The navigation (although not the most efficient) is overall quite intuitive.
    • MangoApps has a web interface, and apps for desktop (Windows, Mac), and mobile.
    • MangoApps features a centralized notification system. Unread messages are notified from the Web app, the mobile, or the desktop app. The synchronization status is synchronized.
    • MangoApps integrates with Active Directory.

    Cons

    Shore Labs

    • 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.

    MangoApps

    • The notification system in the desktop app is not informative enough. Some notifications are shown without any context (for example we sometimes just see "Yes" or "No"), and it's difficult to understand the context (in our case the original question).
    • Messages posted in a big chat group (in our case more than 15k people) make the app crash.
    • HipChat does not support animated GIFs (they just appear static).
    • It's not easy to post transversal questions or updates across groups. A lot of content needs to end in a unique group, losing some opportunity to reach a wider audience.
    • A gamification system is available (people can earn points and badges by completing some actions), but the reward system is quite obscure. As a result, many of us do not feel compelled to gain more badges. It feels like as if we're earning badges randomly.

    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

    Shore Labs

    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.

    Although, Facebook at Work featured a very modern interface and was praised by many of the beta testers, we primarily didn't choose Facebook at Work due to data security reasons.

    Return on Investment

    Shore Labs

    • 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.

    MangoApps

    • MangoApps opened new communication channels between people who would not have naturally communicated before with e-mail alone
    • MangoApps is slowly helping move some communications away from the private e-mail channels into a more opened and public channel, more easily archivable. However, it might take years before we see a majority of discussions happening here.
    • As any introduction of a new tool, MangoApps also disrupted the usages and common practices. Some people had being using their own social tools, and some other were already using e-mail as a social tool. Took some time before the usage of MangoApps rose enough to be mildly useful.
