Practices like Definition of Done, Definition of ready, estimation with story points and hours, simple metrics and instant online synchronization makes it ideal tool for small and medium size agile teams. Collocated, or distributed.

We understand the power of physical cards for agile team. Therefore index card is fundamental principle we apply in all parts of the application.
