Overall Satisfaction with Zenkit

We use Zenkit throughout our startup for various tasks. The main use-case is project planning in a SCRUM-like setting (Kanban). We have all our customer and internal projects (strongly engineering focussed) on there. Additionally, we use it for lead-generating, idea-generation, execution-board, address-book, and for documenting our development results.
  • Customizable fields for items (adding dependencies, dates, documentation)
  • Flexibility in display (Different views, amount of displayed detail)
  • It is best you have an idea on what you want as there is no strong predefined structure.
  • We use Zenkit for all our project management.
As described before, Zenkit adds a lot more flexibility to the things the other applications can do. But this also means that there is no predefined structure which might be helpful for some people. Zenkit is working on that and is releasing some apps building on the core, so that could improve over time.
I am really satisfied with the support. You normally get a response in less than a day. Also there are a lot of video-tutorials for different features.

Do you think Zenkit delivers good value for the price?

Yes

Are you happy with Zenkit's feature set?

Yes

Did Zenkit live up to sales and marketing promises?

Yes

Did implementation of Zenkit go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy Zenkit again?

Yes

Zenkit works extremely well if you are unhappy with other planning tools like Trello or Asana or ToDo apps like Wunderlist. When they bother you because of limitations in their structure then Zenkit is the best tool I know. You can fully customize all the item properties by adding as much additional fields as you want. So you can add additional documentation, fields for start and due-dates, responsible persons, Project-IDs, Topic-IDs, dependencies, ...

If you are searching for a tool where you have a very structured unflexible work-flow, Zenkit will not be for you.

Zenkit really shines when it comes to flexibility and therefore can be used for an extreme variety of tasks, tailored to your needs.
