Based on kanban, a scheduling system that originated in Japan, Kanbanchi lets teams collaborate in a drag-and-drop environment that enables reviewing multiple projects' highlights on one screen. This software title was built by Magic Web Solutions, a United Kingdom outfit that develops enterprise-supporting software. Kanban practitioners move cards from one side of a wall or board to the other, placing the cards in columns that signify steps in a process. With Kanbanchi, cards begin in the left column, and users move them to the right. Kanbanchi users determine their column titles. Column-heading examples include New Project, In Process and Closed. Users can create unlimited columns and cards within one Kanbanchi board. Magic Web Solutions sells Kanbanchi through a monthly subscription. Each subscription buys one user license. Decision makers can choose from three configurations, which are Starter, Professional and Enterprise. Starter delivers task management and collaboration capabilities. Professional adds project planning and time tracking, and Enterprise affords large organizations custom tweaks to Kanbanchi. Importantly, Kanbanchi's makers do not offer a free version.

Its visual interface and drag-and-drop features give users a hands-on feel for their projects' statuses through a computer interface. More than 5,000 companies, schools and nonprofits manage tasks and projects with Kanbanchi. Its systems lets individuals and teams work faster. When the general, board-level details are too broad, with one click, users can gain more information about any card's subject. Additionally, Kanbanchi's ability to integrate Google's Calendar and other G Suite tools helps users become more efficient. Though its makers offer no free version or trial, organizations that currently struggle to meet their goals can enjoy more agility through a Kanbanchi sunscription.
