Imagine the following: You are the leading project manager with a team of 30 under you. You have been given the task to organize a huge project. In the conception stage, you put together an awesome mind-map in Scrapple and then proceed to build a huge, detailed spreadsheet in Excel to plan your project. Next, to monitor your progress, you start using a Kanban tool and monitoring all your deadlines in Google Calendar. Now, as the project moves on, you have to recruit an additional team member and train him/her in all these applications, while leading your team. Your team members all work with the Excel spreadsheet and keep several updated versions on their computers. These are all named Project_Spreadsheet_Final Version X and Project_Spreadsheet_Final_Final.
This is the current reality in many companies and it is very ineffective. What if suddenly something needs to be changed in the spreadsheet and therefore the Kanban board and the calendar need updating as well? The result: total chaos.
For all companies currently using the above-mentioned tools – don’t worry, there is hope. The light at the end of the tunnel is called Zenkit.
Zenkit is a collaborative SaaS platform for project management, database building and more. Follow your data through its entire lifecycle, from fluid brainstorming and research through to a structured system for collaborative use. Zenkit is the flexible workspace you can use to organize anything.
Zenkit lets you view and manipulate your data in multiple intuitive ways to gain deeper insight into your projects. Start with a simple list or Kanban board to plan your process, or switch to a table to input additional data and drill down into your project details. Use it to build your own CRM, automated reporting system, or financial planner, or simply save your recipes and plan your holidays. Share your workspaces and assign tasks to your friends and colleagues, and view as much or as little data as you need at any moment. Zenkit helps you to intuitively focus on what’s important.
Hyper-flexible and customizable, Zenkit is a relational database that anyone can use and understand. It is the home for your data, your projects and your business, no matter how big or small, simple or complex. Use Zenkit to cultivate your data and help your projects flourish.
Pricing options range from a personal version, which is free and will always be free for everyone, to a plus version for 9 dollars per person, per month and a business version for 29 dollars per person, per month.
It is also possible to get licenses for an enterprise version, for which you can contact the Zenkit team to get a quote.
Currently, the Zenkit team is working day and night to release Android and iOS apps. Expected later this year. Want to integrate Zenkit with other tools you currently use? You can use Zapier to connect to 750+ applications.
Zenkit is being developed by Axonic Informationssysteme GmbH in Karlsruhe, Germany.
