    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.

    You can tell from the CEO and all staff that this is a very competent company that wants you to succeed with integrity. There is a strong
    support and services team that works collaboratively with us to make
    sure we are always getting what we need. They provide
    24x7 emergency support, online ticket support, email support, a client
    community, and the ability to call and talk to the same account manager or
    community consultant every time (I even have Mariano's skype and he replies on weekends!). They recently launched a client community - so they are now even practicing what they preach. Our questions in the client community are always answered quickly.

    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.

    • It's easy to use. The admin panel has a number of drag and drop options to modify the experience
    • Flexibility. There are a large number of standard block features that can be added to areas. In addition, each dynamic block as a number of settings that allow you to tailor the experience you want to create. You can do this without being a programmer.
    • Personalization. There are good tools that allow you to personalize the experience based on whether users are logged in or not, whether they are in particular segments (which we can create) or recommendations based on information the user has provided about themselves.
    • Mobile. Small World Labs has a really great way of doing mobile. They give you a drag and drop interface for designing the mobile environment so there is a lot of flexibility with this. We are currently turning this module on.

    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.

    • Integration with our Association Management System (AMS) didn't go as smoothly as I had wished. Having said that all of the issues with that integration have been addressed.
    • Because the platform is updated so frequently you need to stay on top of what is available to you and your end users or you may miss out on key functionality releases.

      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.

      From the first conversation and beyond, it has been a pleasure working with Small World Labs. Their staff are genuinely interested in understanding our business and our goals, and actively make recommendation on continued improvement and long-term strategy. All of their staff demonstrate a clear understanding of the product and when to expect new features. Furthermore, their CEO, Michael Wilson, is more than competent and has proven to be an industry expert. He understands both the technical side and the community strategy side of the business. In fact, we have already initiated a project to build a second community with Small World Labs for a separate business unit

      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.

      The people at Small World Labs are very accessible. I can email, open a ticket, or call and they are there. I'd also point out that senior management is quite available too. We frequently have talks about potential strategies and new things we might be doing, which is great. I think the whole organization genuinely likes what they do and likes helping us succeed.

      In-person training is more ad-hoc based on if they are traveling to you or you are going to visit them. I imagine that if I paid for in-person training that it would be set up as well, but I've just used the standard training that comes with the initial set up and ongoing support.

      We had staff turnover at our own organization during the implementation. We were able to get the community up and live in a good timeframe even though that happened and we had to switch some people around for managing the project on our side.

      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.

      We evaluated a few different community platform vendors over the course of a couple of months. I believe we also evaluated Jive, Lithium, KickApps, and Powered.

      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.

      • Our community has been very active since the re-launch of our site. Have seen some increases in member engagement.
      • Feedback from our membership has been nothing but positive since we transitioned off of our older Sharepoint community. Look and feel and ease of use have been real pluses for our members.
      • Having the Small World Labs community is allowing us to be more creative with the way we integrate our community into all aspects of our online presence, web-site, social media, etc.
