Today I’m really proud to announce that our new tech, PsodaVision, is live! It has been a long time in the making but it was formally released this week.
We created PsodaVision to solve a problem we were facing. We needed to find a way to quickly and easily update our digital Psoda kanban board with the changes we were making on our physical boards. We searched and searched for a product that would help us, but nothing seemed to exist.
And so in typical Psoda fashion, we built it ourselves!
So, what is PsodaVision and how does it work?
PsodaVision bridges the gap between physical and digital kanban boards, letting you have the best of both worlds.
Have you ever been the poor sucker stuck in a room with your laptop after a stand-up meeting has finished, slowly and methodically updating your digital kanban board? Then you’ll know the pain we’re trying to eliminate!
PsodaVision combines the power of your phone with machine vision AI to simplify the process of synchronising physical and digital kanban task boards, which is one of the most common frustrations with Agile project management.
You take a photo of your physical kanban board (with all your moved sticky notes) and upload it to Psoda using our app.
Then go through and confirm the changes.
And that’s it! All your cards on your digital kanban board match your physical board.
What would have taken hours of manual labour now takes minutes, saving you valuable time and letting you do something more important.
Of course, we love PsodaVision, but we’re not alone! Massey University’s Strategic Project Management Director Blair Schmidt believes PsodaVision will make a big difference to their technology and continuous improvement teams’ work.
“Teams get the benefit of face-to-face interaction as they move stickies and discuss processes as well as project management software benefits such as links to additional detail, reporting or their expanded backlog,” says Schmidt.
PsodaVision is available now for Psoda’s existing users – you can access it from the programme and projects tab. If you don’t have an account, sign up for a free trial and give it a bash! Any feedback is welcome.
