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.

Quire is useful for tracking daily to-do's or keeping track of a project. It's not as clean as some other software (such as Nuclino, for example) and can get a little messy when creating a Workspace. It was difficult for me to know what was private and what was visible to my collaborators

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.

Potix Corporation

  • Implements the concept of Kanban boards to give companies the ultimate control of the workflow.
  • Supports the streamline workflow with Kanban board, also tracking the progress is much easier with interactive charts.
  • Assigning team members is quick, adding due dates, tags and setting priority to a task with icons is much more efficient.
  • The drag and drop feature helps to restructure the task list.
  • And in the project overview page, there you can see entire list of the members in a project, setting up a new member and assigning roles or different permission to them can also be done from the single page.

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.

  • Quire syncs with your calendar, but it would be nice to see an actual calendar within the app as well.

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

Shore Labs

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

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.

Quire comes close to Nuclino, but Nuclino wins with its ability to create "cards" and organize a little more neatly.

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.
