About LeanKit

LeanKit Inc., based in Franklin, TN, is an enterprise project management SaaS solution that supports the implementation of Lean principles, practices, and work methodologies across all business functions, to help organizations create an environment of continuous improvement and innovation to deliver customer value, faster. By visualizing your work as it flows through your process, LeanKit provides a big-picture understanding of the work that helps teams work together more effectively.

Using LeanKit, managers can create boards, as a Lean-style pipeline, to manage projects. On boards, Agile-style incremental progress can be tracked with unlimited lanes and sub-lanes, tasks and sub-tasks. Within lanes, Kanban-style cards are assigned for tasks that can be visually identified immediately based upon color, person assigned, title, date due, and the sub-task progress. Users can be notified of changes to LeanKit boards and cards in a variety of ways. Email notifications are utilized for a multitude of events, including when a new card is created, when cards are moved into certain lanes, when sub-tasks are moved into certain lanes, etc. Card-specific communications can take place upon opening the card comments, where users can be @ messaged and notified via email. LeanKit can even be used as a document management system; documents can be uploaded as card attachments, viewable when opening the card. Users can even view the history of cards, so anyone on the board knows at a glance when the card was last modified, who created it, and other events.

LeanKit has proven success with enterprise Рclass organizations across a variety of industries including; software, technology, telecommunications, financial services, healthcare, manufacturing, construction and retail. From small teams to distributed enterprises, thousands of customers use LeanKit everyday to work more effectively. TechnologyAdvice even uses LeanKit across a number of internal teams to manage tasks and projects in marketing, HR, public relations, content management, and operations. LeanKit offers multiple editions, paid per user either annually or monthly.

Your wall full of sticky notes goes digital.

Ease of Use
4 Reviewed on December 5, 2014

What do you like best about this product?

I love the accessibility of the tool. I have it loaded on my phone, laptop, and tablet and it allows me and my team to add notes on the go. Our team uses it to track our projects over time into several stages, so it is great to take a quick glance at any time of how many projects are in each stage at any given time.

What could be improved about this product?

Creating the layout/template take a lot of up-front time. It’s not as intuitive as I would like it to be.

What was your main concern about buying this software?

Worried if my team would adopt the tool since it does take a bit of work to configure. Ultimately, it has worked when we find the right projects to track and it has helped us visually understand our work flow.

What business problems are you solving? What benefits have you seen?

We kept a whiteboard in the office up-to-date with our progress on projects. This meant that if you weren’t in the office or wanted to check the status, you’d have to wait to come back to the office, often times writing and re-writing the list. This tool allows the whiteboard to be digital and everyone can update in real time, on the go.

How likely would you be to recommend this software to a friend or colleague?
