Specific characteristics

SwiftKanban is a Kanban project management software that aims to help businesses enhance collaboration and increase team productivity. With its powerful and intuitive surface, this platform provides users with a wide range of tools for workflow visualization and optimization. It also has the ability to organize multiple swim lanes and hierarchies, making it easier for you to roll out more personalized and specific workflows.

Competitive advantages

What makes SwiftKanban unique from its competitors is that it combines scrum boards, kanban boards, and visual management to help users setup and automate highly efficient workflows. Moreover, it has a highly configurable interface that lets it support over 50 enterprise-grade integrations. This way, various businesses can merge it with business-specific tools to further reinforce their project planning process.

 

In addition to its comprehensive set of project management tools, SwiftKanban also has the capacity to run risk assessments, demand and capability analysis, and delivery forecasting. Meaning, you can not only map out your project plans but also fine-tune your workflows with little to no effort.

 

SwiftKanban connects you with your team using the most popular productivity/ office tools like Outlook, GSuite, and 1000s of others using Zapier, as well as with MS Teams and Slack! We support over 60 popular enterprise-class tools such as TFS/ Azure DevOps, JIRA, CA Agile Central and many others. Use SwiftSync to visualize work across the organization!

 

SwiftKanban also features a Story Mapping board that offers you a comprehensive visual tool to analyze, brainstorm and breakdown your user’s journey in a specific workflow of their regular work, starting with high-level steps down to the lowest level tasks they must be able to accomplish using your product.

 

SwiftKanban is also available in Microsoft Teams. You can add SwiftKanban to any of your channels in the Microsoft teams to access your Kanban board and perform several activities using the SwiftKanban commands available in the MS Teams.

 

SwiftKanban harnesses the power of AI/ML to derive the right perspective and intelligent insights from the existing data. The AI Similarity Recommendation engine in SwiftKanban is based on “semantic/contextual search” which is based on NLP and deep learning (shallow neural network). When you create new cards or modify existing ones in your Kanban Board, SwiftKanban’s powerful AI-based Similarity Recommendation engine can detect similar cards that already exist in your system and show them to you for ideas and solutions that may have already been explored in the past, both within and outside your team.

Typical application scenarios

SwiftKanban is a great visualization tool for project managers, entrepreneurs, and other professionals. With its agile approach to workflow mapping and project management, users can make the most out of every business venture. Moreover, they can ensure that their plans are carried out as smoothly as possible.
