Kanban-style management that is easy to use and quite stable

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the solution to organize projects. Trello is mainly for a Kanban-style of product management. You have a set of tasks and you'll move tasks from one phase to another phase. They won't do anything themselves from the organization's perspective, or from the strategy or the product perspective. A user needs to manipulate the information and set up the processes. If they want to introduce any product, they'll make a different board for that product. Jira, on the other hand, for example, has both a Scrum mode for managing projects and having a toolkit as well as a Kanban-style… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "The solution is very easy to use."
  • "There aren't as many tracking tools."

What other advice do I have?

I'm just a customer and end-user. I use whichever solution the project requires. Sometimes I use Trello, and other times the project calls for something like Jira. I don't use Trello all of the time. The solution is an online tool. On a scale from one to ten, I'd rate the product at a seven. The only drawback I see is the loading issues. For a different set of employees, that wouldn't matter much. They can wait five minutes for everything to load and they can do their work quickly, after five minutes of wait time. However, for my role, where I'm directly facing customers, it should be quick to…

Helpful Kanban board and good alerting, but it should support online conferencing

What is our primary use case?

My company is hiring an outsourced copywriter team for some content purpose. For the first time, we connect by email for exchanging writing documents. Unfortunately, performing tasks by email came up with a poor result that we could not control the progress when several team members participating. Hence, we need communication software to control the process and results. File storage and process tracking are two key targets. Normal instant text messaging software like Skype or Messenger is not suitable in this case. We have come up with Kanban software, and Trello is one of the top selections.

Pros and Cons

  • "Another feature that impressed me is the clear Kanban board, as it provides a clear view of to-to tasks, assuring the team not to forget anything."
  • "Trello could add an analytic tool that allows me to see the performance of each team member, answering questions like whether they meet the deadline or miss the deadline."

A reliable and stable personal board for good monitoring of day to day tasks

What is our primary use case?

We are using the latest version, which is free and online. I use the solution as my personal board for daily, project and operational tasks.

Pros and Cons

  • "The installation was extremely straightforward."
  • "As a team board it did not work well for us."

What other advice do I have?

Trello is cloud-based. For use as a personal board I rate Trello as a ten out of ten.

A Kanban-style application with features for task management, prioritization, and collaboration

What is our primary use case?

We use Trello for task management. We've used it a lot in the last year. I'm able to integrate it within Aha! and link to the Trello board. I kind of use the Aha! side more myself and it feeds into Trello. I do pull up Trello to look and make sure things are in the right spot and we review biweekly in Trello.

Pros and Cons

  • "I think task management, prioritization, rankings, and collaboration features are useful."
  • "Pricing can be improved."

What other advice do I have?

On a scale from one to ten, I would give Trello an eight.
