Best-in-class visualization and analytics, "by the (blue) book"!

SwiftKanban has the best-in-class visualization and analytics, "by the (blue) book"!
We organized AgileCamp 2014 event using the kanban board recently. Mahesh Singh presented how they "ate own dog food" by using Swiftkanban to create this excellent kanban tool! The kanban analytics supported - flow efficiency, cycle time distribution - is by the blue book, as close as it can be to what David Anderson describes in the blue book! Kudos to Mahesh & team for producing SwiftKanban!

Digite's Swift Kanban: There is none other like it

Swift is without a doubt the most effective way to visually manage, track and report on the work that your team is or will be engaged in. The UI is extremely intuitive and user friendly, providing one less thing for teams to worry about when implementing Kanban systems. The included help files in the form of a knowledge database provide the most up to date information and comprehensive step by step walkthroughs of the functionality of Swift. The tool has been accepted by and is the preferred standard for teams implementing Kanban, regardless of the nature of their work within the organization, and continues to increase its user base on a weekly basis

The UI is extremely intuitive and user friendly, providing one less thing for teams to worry about when implementing Kanban systems.

Pros

With Swift, users have the ability to create a board that is fit for purpose, collect data systemically about the work that resides on the board and work in a truly collaborative environment to deliver to solutions for their customers. The pricing structure works very well for our organization; we draw from a pool of licenses and if we need more, we simply request them and add that number to the overall pool. The cloud hosting configuration is very solid and the requested details about it from Digite have immediately put to rest any concerns our security folks had about a cloud based app and its ability to protect the data that is stored in the tool via the cards. Digite's technical support team is second to none in terms of response time, implementing any bug fixes and new functionality and level of customer support.

Cons

Swift has trouble at times from a performance perspective with WebEx. We have noticed that participants in a WebEx meeting sometimes experience slowness with the tool when making modifications to their boards.

Pros

It is an excellent tool to monitor large software projects with several multidisciplinary teams. It allows to monitor alerts, issues, blocked tasks, backlog, activities is much broader than simple boards applications

Cons

The price can be quite high for small organizations and the learning curve to adapt to the tool is very great given all that can be done with this application. You need corrections in the web version has some bugs
