Shore Labs

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.

SmartBear

The software works best in a collaborative environment where information needs to be conveyed quickly and effectively with visual and impromptu notes. If your group doesn't like to do things online and prefers the whiteboard for in-person meetings maybe this solution is overkill. In-person meetings happen frequently so this solution makes it easier to do things remotely.

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.

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.

    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.

    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.

    Capture for Jira was just the right-sized application we needed to make our Jira implementation more productive and effective. We didn't want to migrate from Jira, so this was the right choice to build upon the infrastructure we already had. It was the best option without pouring more money into another solution.

    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.
