If you’ve ever coordinated an event or have been part of a team project, you probably understand how hard it can be to have all participants involved on the same page, so to speak. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a real-time user interface, easily-accessible by all group members where project updates, additional tasks and other important information can be viewed and updated as the objective reaches completion?
Finally, along comes AgileZen — an easy tool, providing a logistical chain application of keeping track of your projects. It manages all necessary steps as it pushes along from early, planning stages, through the working phase and eventually archives the project at the end. It appears as a forum dedicated to one task; a digital bulletin board of ‘e-sticky notes.’ All participants can edit, add and update the workflow through the dedicated iOS app.
Drag-and-drop custom points of your project, where others can view them and directly respond to you in real time. The user interface is based off of a traditional ‘kanban’ billboard, which is used to maintain inventory levels within a company. This is the sleekest, most organized and efficient means of executing group projects — a perfect companion to your workflow at your fingers on your iPad.
“The AgileZen app is tailor made for the iPad,” said Rally’s VP of Products, Todd Olson. “It’s incredibly convenient for collaborating with your team in real-time from anywhere in the world.”
The app is available for free in the iTunes App Store and is compatible with AgileZen 2.0 beta, which is available for free commercial or personal use while still in its beta phase. For startups and larger office environments, AgileZen could be your go-to universal application to get things done right.
