Planview LeanKit customer success
- “LeanKit has a level of flexibility I’ve never experienced before in other tools. We use it for managing our workload, managing our resources, and also as a project management tool.”
- “The fact that we can modify the board structure as much as we need allows us to use the same tool for not only project portfolio management and team management, but also for managing our own personal work.”
- “Simplicity is the nirvana for any successful system rollout, and it was clear that from the start that LeanKit met that criteria.”
- “I’m able to generate more insightful reporting, both up and out, so I can keep leadership up to date.”
