Public sector teams increasingly face the challenge of collaborating with people from multiple locations: across agency boundaries, and even across the nonprofit and public sectors.
Paper won't get you there.
And neither will SharePoint or Microsoft Project, with their restrictive policies and procedures and built-in IT bottlenecks.
Kerika's real-time, shared Kanban Boards makes Kanban possible across locations, even timezones.
Your virtual boards can be as large as needed – up to hundreds of cards, across hundreds of boards if needed – and they can be viewed in any browser, on any computer: at work, on the road, or from home.
Board Admins can manage the flow of work using Work-In-Progress Limits (WIP Limits), and every card on a Kerika board is a like a magical sticky note: it can contain details of the work item, files and Web links, and even entire chat conversations.
For some teams, the priority is on being creative: Kerika offers real-time, interactive, infinitely flexible Whiteboards to help distributed teams collaborate on brainstorming, design, analysis, and other creative work.
More and more these days, teams are adopting Agile: not just for product development, but for all business functions.
Kerika's Scrum Boards ease the transition from traditional "Waterfall" projects to the Agile/Scrum methodology, with shared Backlogs that allow teams to use multiple Sprints to burn down a stack of work.
Kerika has been used by business and IT teams across a variety of State, County and City Governments:
The list goes on: Employment Security Department, Office of Financial Management, Pollution Liability Insurance Agency, Department of Corrections...
At the local level we have users in the City of Kent, the Tacoma Schools District...
