What are you using Kanban Tool for?
Every bit of work excluding the big projects which are all within our Project management system (5PM). Every other bit of work provided by customers goes through Kanban.
Could you describe your work flow?
Besides Kanban we’re using a ticket system “Freshdesk”. Our customer use that to post new work, wishes and bugs. We’ve built an API which talks between Freshdesk and Kanban, so every ticket is a new card in Kanban within 5 minutes (included with company name, ticket creator, color, priority, link to ticket system, etc).
What is your board structure?
We’re using 5 different columns that all represent something.
Have you made any adjustments to improve your performance?
Before we used Kanban / Freshdesk we all had our own customers and e-mail inbox, there was no clear overview of what others had to do. Now with Freshdesk / Kanban there’s 1 big screen at the office which provides a perfect view of what we have to do as a whole.
Are there any favourite features you have in Kanban Tool?
As simple as it is but we definitely value the color options very high, this provides so much information when you look at it for only 1 second.
What are the most important benefits of using Kanban Tool for you?
Our workflow has definitely improved, we’re completing tasks much faster and our ‘Completed' column gives us the satisfaction when the whole board is Green on Friday. ;-)
