Optimize your workflow with an online kanban board

Do you use kanban? If so, are you currently also using a kanban board? If you aren’t, you certainly should be. These visual tools really can help optimize your work flow in ways you may have never thought possible. The first thing you need to know about kanban boards is that there are two different types commonly used to enhance work flow.

These two types of kanban boards are physical boards that consist of sticky notes, index cards or a white board display and virtual boards that are hosted online. Typically, physical boards are used by centrally located teams that see each other face-to-face on a regular basis, while online kanban boards are recommended for groups that are co-located or dispersed. Think that an online kanban board could work for you and your team? Here is a look at the advantages associated with the use of these virtual workflow boards.

The advantages of using an Online Kanban Board

Remote Collaboration

As previously mentioned, online kanban boards allow teams to remotely communicate and collaborate all together. This improves the overall work flow by giving your team members the opportunity to submit the contributions without having to be in the office.

Email Integration

For the convenience of you and your team members, online kanban boards can be synced up with everyone’s work email and calendar. This feature helps everyone get on the same page, which in turn improves the work flow as a whole. 

Real-Time Accessibility

Another one of the benefits associated with online kanban boards is 24 hour access all year round. This means that the entire team will be able to have real-time access to the framework, even after business hours or while in remote locations.

Online kanban boards are key to optimizing your workflow as they offer an easy way for you and your collaborators to clearly visualize the entire process as needed.
