We did a thorough review of existing Kanban tools, and most of them are either costly, or they just don’t work, really! So, we decided to reimagine and re-invent visual project management.
We are building a new Kanban, with Swimlanes, Backlogs, Message Boards.. more.
Totally Free for small teams and individuals.
(Launching on Wednesday, 30th September 2020)
We evaluated existing Kanban Tools, and found them to either be seriously lacking or incomplete, or too expensive (especially for smaller companies and indie makers). Lets take a dive –
KanbanTool has very limited set of customizations allowed on cards, and we couldn’t see any backlog management support either. Additionally, they only allow 2 boards and 2 users in the free plan. Pretty limiting.
KanbanFlow seemed like a good option at first, with unlimited boards and unlimited users in the free plan, but they won’t let you use swimlanes or reporting features. They also only offer very static boards with little room for customizations.
Similar other options unfortunately had similar limitations.
What about Trello?
Trello is great, in fact we’ve used it for some time. But we realized that planning is much more than just a kanban board that Trello offers.
First of all, Trello doesn’t have swimlanes despite being so popular. Like seriously. THAT’S A HUGE DEAL BREAKER. Most people intend to use single board for projects, and swimlanes really help divide the project across teams, features, streams and sometimes by priority or types. Trello just refuse to offer swimlanes despite being in the market for a long time.
Trello also doesn’t offer backlogs.
There are basic things that we found missing as well, like assigning priority to cards.
Our primary motivation for building a new Kanban Tool has been to support small teams, small companies & Indie makers, keeping it completely free for them. We’re committed to perfectionize Kanban, the way it should be. We’re a .com with a heart of .org.
Over the years, Kanban boards are proven to be perfect tools for visual project management and team planning. Kanban boards not only help you visualize different aspects of a project, they also help make sure that the team is on track to meet the goals, and that right tasks are prioritized. Kanban boards also provide a single platform for the entire team to communicate over a project.
We’re a team of professional developers, and we build all our technology in-house. This allows us to keep our costs low, hence offering the online kanban software free for individuals, indie hackers and makers and small teams.
