Companies using Kanboard

Dear kanboard community,

I would like to know about which known companies are actually using Kanboard software in their work management.

I would like to show some customers about this tool, that I used having a satisfactory experience with my team. But for conventional customers I would need to show examples of use cases

Best regards

We use it here internally. I Wouldn’t sell Kanboard to end users though, it’s just not ready for this day and age. You’ll loose them in the looks department and Kanboard as far as I’ve used is not mobile friendly. Yes you can run it on mobile, but no it’s not a good experience.

Don’t get me wrong, I love Kanboard and it does it’s job here, but maintenance, training, upkeep added together, won’t make sense in most cases. Less hassle paying a few dollars per user.

As for uses; we use it for:

  • Invoice requests from sales to accounts departments
  • Project tracking
  • Issue tracking like a ticketing system but we have a form that goes direct to Kanboard from users
  • Containers and stock incoming tracking (But this will be moved into our ERP shortly)
  • Marketing planning
  • Large client life-cycle tracking (Smaller clients not worth the time it takes, we just go through Google Sheets and the invoice system)
  • Maintenance and non-scheduled outgoings logging and approval.

We use it at Eskilstuna kommuns GIS department and a little at some other departments

I agree with plague69’s comments to a point. I love Kanboard (and most of the kanban methodolog) but it doesn’t look sleek and pretty like other online kanboards. However, I have also found that most of those other kanban systems have their own issues, so I ended up with Kanboard for a number of reasons:

  • Price: There are a couple other kanban systems that are “free” but they’re either reduced in features or are starting to ask their users questions like “how much would you be willing to pay” which is kind of a red flag. My company is still getting started so it’s great that it’s free.
  • Flexible: The plugin system is great, and the plugin authors are responsive. I don’t have a PHP background (I’m a python/C guy) but I’ve been able to submit patches and even write a couple internal plugins for our company’s use.

Having said that, we mainly use Kanboard for:

  • Tracking reports: Our company does electrical audits, and KB is great for assigning tasks. It’s easy to see when someone gets stuck with something so that somebody else can help out to get the report into our customers’ hands.

  • Tracking software projects: We also develop some in-house software and KB is great for tracking tasks for each release.

So we have a mix of users - the computer savvy developers and our office/clerical staff.

Oh, and a quick edit about price: when a kanban system wants to charge money, that’s fine, but when the price per user approaches the price we pay Google for the entire Google Apps ecosystem, it’s basically a non-starter for a small business like ours.

I have started using Kanboard in a Brazilian government organization. The main reason to select it is as follows:

  • Open Source so that we have the opportunity to evolve. I have started the development of my own plugins. It’s easy and great

  • Data is over own control rather than third-parties

  • it is MUCH better than the older system, Trello

  • it’s FREE.

I have included it in my trainings because I can show and use several capabilities of the Flow Kanban system

@plague69 this form, is this a wordpress form or some other kind of web form?

I’m looking for a way to submit a wordpress form that creates a ticket within kanboard, can you point me in the right direction?
