Kerika is task management for distributed, lean and agile teams. It's the only tool that lets you work with Kanban Boards, Scrum Boards, and Whiteboards, so every project can be set up just the way you need.
Kerika integrates beautifully with Google Apps: sign in with your Google ID, and have all your project files stored in your own Google Drive where they remain under your organization's control.
Task Boards are great for Kanban: for personal projects and team projects.
They are exceptionally easy to use and can be customized to suit each project's workflow.
Scrum Boards let you share a Backlog of tasks and user stories across multiple Sprints, each of which can be set up as a separate board.
Whiteboards are flexible canvases let you organize and share your ideas, your content, process flows, notes, etc. And only Kerika's Whiteboards let you layer canvases within each other, so you can explore even complex ideas.
Other great features:
Highlights and Views let you zoom in on what matters most, to you, even when you are working on a board with hundreds of cards, or with hundreds of boards. No other tool has anything like it.
You can even pivot your view of a Kanban or Scrum Board to see all your work items sorted by due date: see at a glance what's overdue, due this week, and due next week
Work-In-Progress (WIP) Limits help you avoid bottlenecks. Kerika's WIP Limits are simple and effective to use.
Complete content management: just drag and drop anything from your desktop, your Intranet, or the Web and Kerika makes sure that the right people have the right access, with automatic tracking of versions. Even stuff from SharePoint can be part of your Kerika boards.
Complete control over access and privacy: each board can have a different set of Board Admins, Team Members and Visitors, so all kind of projects can be managed within a single account.
Real-time updates and smart alerts: Kerika makes sure you never miss what happened while you weren't looking, without sending you a ton of email.
Tags make it easy to manage really large collections of Kanban, Scrum and Whiteboards, with each board containing hundreds of cards and canvases.
Chat is integrated with your tasks and your content: attach your conversations to specific work items, and get off of email for good!
Each work item can have sub-tasks, each of which can be assigned and scheduled separately: Kerika rolls it all up so you don't miss a thing.
Smart timezones: Kerika automatically recognizes when a team is distributed across multiple timezones and adjusts all the due dates accordingly so they make sense to everyone.
Templates make it easy for you to capture your organization's best practices and standard workflows as project templates.
Easy export (into a document or spreadsheet) makes it painless to handle legal discovery/disclosure requirements..
Kerika is used widely in a variety of industries and sectors: mining, retail, government, academia, nonprofits, consulting, technology. It's used in government, in nonprofits, in large global companies and small scrappy startups -- and even by middle school students.
