SwiftKanban harnesses the power of AI/ML to derive the right perspective and intelligent insights from the existing data. The AI Similarity Recommendation engine in SwiftKanban is based on “semantic/contextual search” which is based on NLP and deep learning (shallow neural network). When you create new cards or modify existing ones in your Kanban Board, SwiftKanban’s powerful AI-based Similarity Recommendation engine can detect similar cards that already exist in your system and show them to you for ideas and solutions that may have already been explored in the past, both within and outside your team.
SwiftKanban connects you with your team using the most popular productivity/ office tools like Outlook, GSuite, and 1000s of others using Zapier, as well as with MS Teams and Slack!

What is this service generally used for?
SwiftKanban helps organizations and teams visualize their workflow and work on a visual Kanban board. The workflow or value stream through which work must flow to be completed is visualized on the Kanban board, using SwiftKanban’s powerful SmartLanes capability. SwiftKanban’s SmartLanes allow for pretty much any knowledge process to be modeled effectively, whether it is a product/application development process, a DevOps workflow, an IT helpdesk process, an HR recruitment process or an advertising campaign process! Work is visualized as Kanban cards of different colors to identify different work-type of classes of service or priority, as needed.
Once work is visualized and managed on the Kanban board, SwiftKanban provides many visual and insightful features to help manage and optimize the flow of work (using WIP limits), visualize problems/ bottlenecks (highlighting WIP limit violations, blocked or flagged work items), work that is being ignored or forgotten (waiting or aging work items) and make sure that there is smooth and optimized workflow through the system.
As teams start to use the Kanban board and process effectively, SwiftKanban provides very useful analytics and animations to help them understand how their process can be improved, their delivery cycle times reduced, and their throughput or velocity increased. All with the goal to boost the overall value and quality delivered to their customer. It helps them forecast with confidence how much they can deliver by when, and provide management and customers great visualization of the team’s performance and commitments.
