About LeanKit

Designed for the practical implementation of Kanban, LeanKit is a highly flexible project management platform that lets you visualize your process, collaborate more effectively and identify opportunities for improvement.

Using cards on a virtual whiteboard, LeanKit harnesses the innate human preference for consuming information visually. By creating a visual model of your team’s work and workflow, you gain insight that’s otherwise lost in list-based tools. Our intuitive software provides a single, consolidated view of the work that teams can easily access and interact with across multiple locations, devices and systems.

About Geekbot

Geekbot is a slackbot assistant that helps users set up real asynchronous stand up meetings within Slack. The solution helps staff stay organized, up-to-date and aligned with the rest of the team. It only takes a few minutes to set up an initial standup with team members.

Geekbot creates a non-intrusive process to help teams stay focused on tasks. Each department can have its own timeline which is helpful for complex projects. Multiple standups break down information and distribute it to the right people directly.

Some of Geekbot's default set of questions include:

  • What did you accomplish yesterday?
  • What will you do today?
  • What obstacles are impeding your progress?

Users can adjust and customize questions for each standup to better fit the department or team, as well as set a personalized tone. Geekbot can understand simple chat commands such as ‘login’, ‘report’, ‘off’, and primary users can choose who has privileges to edit, and who will be limited to reporting.

All information is distributed through Slack as well as inside the dashboard environment, where users can perform a variety of added actions such as report filtering and additional insights. Users can download standup data by clicking the ‘download CSV’ link manage their email summaries and more.
