Overall Satisfaction with Zenkit

With the news that Trello was acquired by Atlassian last year, I decided to look at alternatives and came across Zenkit which is Trello on steroids. I use Trello in my business to manage my Sales Pipeline, Projects, and tasks and have mirrored this in Zenkit for the past year with the aim of moving totally to Zenkit once they developed an android app which they have now done. Zenkit addressed all the needs that Trello fulfilled and more. So I use it as a brain dump, help with task planning, managing strategic goals, pipeline & project management with the added bonus that I can now do this via the App.
  • Multiple Views - Kanban.Cards, Lists, Tables & even Mindmaps
  • Addition of custom fields which included numbers
  • In table view this can be filtered & numbered fields can have totals at the top.
  • Zenkit has handy pre-buitl templates for different kinds of use such a CRM
  • Has the ability to change field content across cards via bulk action. Neat!
  • Can have formulas in Cutom fields
  • Calander syncs to Google calendar
  • Can bulk import Trello lists & cards easily
  • App sometimes a wee bit slow to sync but this has improved
  • Would like ability to reorder the position of a custom field in the card
  • Currently can't link emails to cards as in other CRM systems (ie use a bcc dropbox email address)
  • For the price, it is definitely worth a punt.
  • Helped me manage tasks, processes and strategic goals thus saving time & being more efficient.
  • SImple to learn & plenty of tutorials so onboarding was straightforward.
In a previous review for Trello I said it was great, which it is. Zenkit, however, is Trello on steroids and previously only thing holding me back from moving totally to Zenkit was the fact they didn't have mobile apps. They now have a both Android & Iphone apps. So I will be completing the transition across to Zenkit. Will still use Trello on occasion.
Well suited to most small business productivity requirements. Can be used as a basic CRM, used to manage projects. There are even use case templates for ERP, Inventory & Order Management, Document Management & HR. So in the absence of software covering these business functions in a business, they could use Zenkit to manage these simple processes at a bargain price (Free or $9per user per month depending on subscription).
Less appropriate if you have more complex business process requirements.
