Favro Software


 

Favro is a project management solution for teams that collaborate with employees, vendors and clients situated in different locations. The software provides project managers with overviews within multiple boards regarding the daily or weekly tasks covered by team members. It also provides backlogs of all projects on a real-time basis.

Favro handles projects from idea generation to completion. The project is broken down into different tasks using Favro’s breakdown feature, which allows each task to be monitored individually. The software has a planning board in which employees can list their tasks and update other team members about task status. The planning board helps users see which projects are being planned versus being executed.

Favro’s cloud-hosted services are ISO certified and teams can opt in to both two-factor authentication and Single Sign-On (SSO) services from Google and Github. The software is integrated with Google Drive and Dropbox to allow files to get attached to the planning board.

Pros

Has the features that Trello was missing:

- easily manage multiple project environments
- burn down for agile/scrum teams

Cons

Support and knowledge base seem hard to navigate.

Can't easily get to company page when logged in.

Moving the paywall on early adopters for admin features and integrations seemed dirty (I get why it was done but we would have got there organically a few months later)

We use it to have a better production overview and also for simple project management, we try to avoid using JIRA when possible.

Overall Favro helps us improve our productivity.

Pros

Multiple boards on a single page (they call it collections), Kanban functionalities (backlog and board lanes), Workflow, Timesheet and much more!
Cheaper than Trello.

Cons

Favro does not offer as many native integrations as Trello but they have the most important one: Zapier.

I love telling colleagues that use Trello about Favro, it really is Trello++. I personally use it for task tracking, scheduling my own calendar and mini projects. Only issue is that pricing is a bit high, but the free version is great too.

Favro hits the sweet spot between Trello and other more complex software. We are a team of around 15 game developers, and we love it. It's young, so still missing some important features, but the rate of improvement is excellent so we're sticking with it.

I'm a big fan of the clean layout and intuitive interface. The only thing keeping this from a higher rating, would be the ability to more easily see subtasks on cards.

Pros

Style, simplicity, efficiency

Cons

Lack of more advanced features

Advice to Others

User test big projects w/ many people

After moving from Trello I have experienced how effective this platform is for scrums, sprints and getting creative projects to the finish line collectively.

Great design and easy functionalities, would recommend to anyone.

Pros

the accessibility and flexibility of the boards

Cons

I would say not being able to have a live chat with team on the mobile via favro

Advice to Others

think favro's doing well definitely an upgrade from trello!

We've recently made the transition from Trello to Favro, and on the whole we're very happy with the quality of the software and the service provided. The only constructive criticism i have is:

- having to download linked files to preview them, in trello you could view files linked to cards in browser without having to download them first. This is an essential functionality that favro is sorely lacking!

- when you have multiple long collections of different long lists, it can become quite complicated to navigate around the collections, maybe an expanded set of shortcuts allowing you to jump from collection to collection and card to card could be quite useful in terms of the user experience. At the moment it can be quite tricky to find specific cards in big collections.

Cheers,

Damiaan

Pros

Great UI and UX design, very useful for keeping track of big projects with lots of moving parts

Cons

no linked file preview on cards,

confusing to navigate large collections

Advice to Others

If working with large collections be careful to file all your cards easily at the start to save a headache later on

So far my office uses Favro in several different ways, depending on project requirements. It helps us all stay on the same page with projects, despite being in different time zones.
I find it particularly useful for Kanban boards, and showing different boards at different times, so you can track everything on one screen. Super support from staff who are looking to improve the service constantly.

Pros

User interface

Cons

A few small features that could be added, but I'm sure they will come with time.

I like the overall look and feel of the product but some of the interaction and features feels a bit wierd. We link a lot of cards between collections/boards to expose them to different teams and in different constelations but it takes a bit of effort to do as you have to add each list to the new collections. There are also some bits regarding user rights the are unclear or missing, like why you can't add a list to some collections. It would also be great to be able to invite external user to do certain operations like uploading files to a card, changing order and moving between certain lists/columns.

We moved to Favro after all the bottlenecks we faced with Trello.
Few reasons:
- ability to view multiple boards in the same view
- a nice and tidy TODO list per user (no need to go through zillion tickets to figure out what I should do next and what is the prio for the next ticket)
- high level reporting

Without these features, Trello had become unusable for our use cases.

We have great faith in Hansoft as a company and we believe they will take Favro to be the next balanced PM tool which suits both lightweight as well as heavyweight process oriented teams.

Customer support/success peeps have been so great that we can't really complain about anything there. They have worked at lightning speed to resolve feature requests, bug fixes and on-boarding!

Big thanks to Favro team and all the best for the future release! Keep up the great work.

I am communicating with another internal team and have been collaborating with them on their board. Unfortunately I wasn't especially sold on the comparison versus trello. It just isn't worth the cost.

Pros

Simpler UI than trello

Cons

Price tag

Advice to Others

Think about what exactly makes it worth the price and present that better to the customer

Me and my colleagues have been using Trello for a few years now. Since discovering Favro, more and more people have moved to it. Favro allwows more flexibility in sorting/arranging/parenting cards and in the way it can display your card collection.

Favro offers amazing customer support and are very quick to implement new feature requests and fix bugs. Would totally recommend this to others as the best substitute for Trello or other similar services
