The traditional Kanban board uses cards that tell what and how much should be produced and when it should be done. With such a visual picture of the work process you can quickly reveal bottlenecks and blockers. Less time is spent on trying to sort out how projects are coming along, because everything is visible on the Kanban board.
Moving the Kanban board into Outlook gives you everything in the computer, and no cards are lost because they fall to the floor or are lost in other ways. On top of that the developers of kalmstrom.com Business Solutions have added several useful features:
Drag and drop tasks within and between different phases of a project.
Filter tasks by project and/or priority (and by a custom parameter).
Display of tasks for multiple projects in one Kanban board.
Kanban Task Manager uses as much standard Outlook features as possible, and therefore it is easy to understand and work with. The user interface is nice and colorful, and as many are already using Outlook there is no need to learn another system.
Kanban Task Manager works in an Outlook Task folder. New projects and tasks can be created with a few simple steps. Excel reports show statistics on tasks.
