Next week, KanBo will once again be participating in Europe’s largest community event focused on Microsoft technology: the European SharePoint, Office 365, and Azure Conference taking place in Dublin, Ireland from November 13th through 16th. And once again, KanBo is being recognized by the community and organizers as a finalist for the 2017 Community Awards. This is a great honor, and we’re excited to once again be consider among some of the leading products and brands within the Microsoft partner community.

KanBo was an ESPC14 Community Awards WinnerThis is not the first time KanBo has been nominated. At the 2014 event held in Barcelona, Spain, we were nominated for Best Social Strategy and Most Innovative Cloud Solution, we were called out in the keynote by our good friend and MVP Christian Buckley (@buckleyplanet) during his opening keynote with Microsoft’s Mark Kashman (@mkashman), and we proudly took home the award for Best Social Strategy. Our ability to combine elements of Kanban with SharePoint features and powerful social communication capabilities helped us win this community recognition, and we’re excited to be in the running again this year!

2017 Community Award Nominations

What makes this year’s Community Awards even more special is the fact that we have been nominated as finalists for three categories:

  • Best Management Solution – demonstrating how KanBo provides granular access into the work being done within a single project, across a division, or enterprise-wide, allowing executives and managers to see, comment, and interact with projects and programs they own.
  • Best office 365 Add-In – demonstrating how KanBo extends project and portfolio management for Office 365, far beyond the out-of-the-box experience in SharePoint, as well as Microsoft Teams, giving small teams and large enterprises alike the much-needed visibility they require into the project activities across site collections and organizational structures.
  • Most Innovative SharePoint Solution – demonstrating how the core KanBo features are deeply integrated with SharePoint, leveraging all of its capabilities whether on-premises or online, to improve communication and collaboration.

We’re excited to be attending this event again this year, and look forward to meeting with attendees, speakers, and partners while in Dublin. We’re proud of the progress we’ve made over the past year, and the value that we provide to SharePoint and Office 365.

The Business Value of KanBo

At its core, KanBo provides powerful social collaboration capabilities that help employees interact with peers and managers, create and share content, and get work done faster. KanBo focuses on work, and makes it more social. When content, conversations, and context are all in one location, workloads are completed more quickly and comprehensively. KanBo helps you reduce the level of interruptions by personalizing your notifications. Follow topics, lists, cards, and boards to get information on what you care about the most, in real-time. Make email a more integrated part of your intelligent workplace, converting important emails into cards, and quickly assigning tasks, attaching relevant content, and securing everything using SharePoint security and compliance controls.
In short, with KanBo — you are in charge of your information.
