    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.

    Staffbase GmbH

    Staffbase is well-suited for companies who want to drive and measure employee engagement through meaningful content. I wouldn't recommend it for companies that maintain a complex SharePoint environment with years of legacy content. It is not intended to be a CMS system. It is a dynamic platform that makes it's easy to share information through the mobile or desktop app and email and push notifications. You don't need a large team to manage it.

    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.

    Staffbase GmbH

    • Easy to use back-end for posting and managing content—you don't have to rely on IT for support.
    • Software update releases are included in the licensing fees. No need to get outside developers involved in making changes to the platform.
    • Employee segmentation is extremely easy with an API from your HRIS system.
    • Translations are a breeze!
    • Creating forms on the go is easy and efficient!
    • Use your existing organization's SSO for ease of use and security.

    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.

      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.

      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.

      Since we selected Staffbase, they are one of a few companies that haven't been acquired or changed its business model. We would have invested a lot of time and money rebuilding our intranet otherwise. We selected them because of the standard features included, the free updates, and the reasonable licensing fees. They understand the value of communicating with non-desk employees and keeping them engaged.

      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.

      Staffbase GmbH

      • Engagement levels increased for non-desk employees without access to a PC.
      • We leverage the tool as part of our crisis management activities, without having to invest in an additional platform.
      • We can issue surveys quickly without investing in additional engagement tools.
