Kanbanchi for G Suite

  • If you need transparency around your workloads the product is great as it is easy to use and visually tells a story.
  • It is ideal for SCRUM management as it plays into the ideas of Sprint

MindMeister is ideally suited for building mind maps, site maps, or similar types of data maps in the cloud without needing to install extra software. I find that it isn't quite as ideal for other types of diagrams (ERDs, flowcharts, etc) as some other tools, though it definitely can handle those things as well.

Pros

Kanbanchi for G Suite

  • Great for supporting SCRUM as part of Agile deliveries. We use the ToDo, Doing and Done and build GANNT charts to facilitate resource planning.
  • We use it at a department level to manage workloads and help staff know what work is waiting for them and the relative priority.
  • We have deployed it across the organisation and also work with suppliers and offshore development teams to coordinate activities.

  • The UI is well laid out and easy to use. The workflow makes perfect sense and makes creating tasks a breeze.
  • The collaboration features make brainstorming not only easy but fun! Everyone enjoys using the tool, which was not the case with other collaboration software we used.
  • I love being able to get all of my thoughts and ideas on the screen to see them and then be able to connect them in a logical way.

Cons

Kanbanchi for G Suite

  • Occasionally hangs at login but this may be to do with our authentication service.
  • It would be nice when grouping cards together if there was an option to lay them over each other in a fan arrangement.

  • I wish collaborators could add comments without having to be given editor privileges. A "Reviewer" role would be helpful.
  • I would like to be able to toggle note visibility on and off. If there is a way to do it now, I haven't found it. As it is, I have to hover or use the sidebar to see notes.
  • Two or three times I have seen my nodes spontaneously reverse order in a big map (over their recommended limit). Even so, they are working on tracking the issue down.

Never had an issue with customer support, though we never really needed anything major as far as technical help. I do not believe they offer 24 hour customer support but we don't need it as MindMeister is not the type of tool we need need 24 hour a day support for. Overall, very happy with the level of support.

We have used MS Project previously but ended up doing things in spreadsheets so KanBanchi has bridged this gap for us

I have also used LucidChart and Google Draw to create mind maps and concept maps in the past. I think that MindMeister is by far the cleanest and most user friendly of the three. Google Draw does not have anywhere near the same functionality. LucidChart tends to be clunky and the options to create your map are not always clear and intuitive.

Return on Investment

Kanbanchi for G Suite

  • We have seen great value in our planning for Agile deliveries especially when applying it to SCRUM.
  • Using the product we have found it quickly surfaces resource constraints and blockers when planning for projects.

  • The most positive result of using MindMeister is a visualization of each step in work and connections between different nodes(ideas, steps).
  • This greatly simplifies the work, especially collaborative work, since it is easier to show it once than to explain things many times.
  • Negative impact: lack of offline desktop version.
