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

Used Daily for 2+ years
Reviewed on 2019/09/23
Review Source: Capterra

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

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.

Benefits

Benefits of SwiftKanban-
1. SmartLanes based Swim Lane design that provides powerful workflow mapping capabilities – across multiple work-items, classes of service and many other attributes. This makes it easy for customers to map even the most complex processes easily on the Kanban Board.

2. Large and insightful set of Lean/Kanban-based analytics based on statistical analysis, Monte Carlo simulation, flow analysis and process control. Customers get the benefit of implementing true Lean/ Kanban principles, and the improvements thereof.

3. Easy to use, highly configurable Board Design with several powerful Visualization controls – such as Board Zoom, Aging, Calendar, Change tracking and others. Makes it easy for teams used to physical boards to migrate to an electronic Kanban board and use it effectively for day-to-day work management – including Daily Standups – as well as an effective Information Radiator for all stakeholders.

4. Highly flexible Hierarchy Design for Portfolio and Program level Board design, unlimited levels of hierarchy, many-to-many relationships and child-to-parent progress reporting. Solves a key challenge for customers to scale Agile in the enterprise, provide Agile Portfolio and Program Management – and visibility to executive management of all critical initiatives.

5. Power simulation via the unique Board Playback feature: Teams can watch their “Kanban Movie” and see in real time how their board and workflow performed over the last week/month/quarter or any review time period. Enables them to observe patterns, identify bottlenecks, sources of rework and resource loading. And helps them identify specific improvement opportunities.
