Kerika is work management for distributed, Lean and Agile Teams.
NEW IN V.118: improved support for Account Management.
Kerika integrates beautifully with Google Docs and Google Drive to let you share Kanban Boards, Scrum Boards and Whiteboards with anyone, anywhere, using just a browser.
Sign-up is super easy: just use your Google ID; even a simple Gmail address will work.
Kerika lets you work the way you want, with a choice of Kanban Boards, Scrum Boards and Whiteboards:
TASK BOARDS are great for Lean and Kanban teams (and individuals working on personal projects!)
Kerika's Task Boards are exceptionally easy to use and can be customized to suit each project's workflow.
SCRUM BOARDS may look a lot like regular Task Boards, but they let you share a Backlog of tasks and user stories across multiple Sprints.
Scrum Boards are also great when several teams need to divide up work between them: all these teams can access the same Backlog of "to do" items, with real-time visibility in what's been worked on, and what remains.
WHITEBOARDS are completely flexible canvases that let you organize and share your ideas, your content, process flows, notes, etc. (And, by the way, we invented and patented our whiteboard technology!)
Other great features:
WORK-IN-PROGRESS (WIP) Limits help you manage the flow on your Kanban and Scrum boards.
AUTOMATIC TRACKING OF VERSIONS make it easy to share any kind of file -- and any content from your Intranet or the Internet, including corporate SharePoint sites.
BOARD TEAMS: each board can have it's own Board Admins , Team Members and Visitors.
REAL-TIME UPDATES: changes you make to any of your project boards are shown instantly to everyone on the team.
SMART ALERTS: Kerika makes sure you never miss what happened while you weren't looking, without sending you a ton of email.
TAGS and REAL-TIME SEARCH make it easy to manage really large collections of Kanban, Scrum and Whiteboards, with each board containing hundreds of cards and canvases.
INTEGRATED CHAT gets pushed to you as email: you can reply to it just like regular email, and find your reply shows up on the Kerika board as well.
PLANNING VIEWS: 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.
SUB TASKS: smart checklists let you organize subtasks within larger tasks.
SMART TIMEZONES: Kerika automatically recognizes when a team is distributed across multiple timezones.
WORKFLOWS and TEMPLATES make it easy for you to capture your organization's best practices and standard workflows as project templates.
EXPORTING is easy: get your Kanban and Scrum Boards as an Excel file, or formatted for printing.
