Kanban for WordPress Acquired

Some not so breaking news, this was announced May 7, Under New Management: “As of today, Kanban for WordPress is under new management! The teams behind Alpha Particle and Flowspoke have come together to take over Kanban for WordPress and take it through the rest of 2021 and beyond.”

Sponsor of the Week: Atarim speeds up web project delivery through visual collaboration – Allowing your team and clients to point at any part of the page to leave a comment. Eliminating annoying back and forth and enabling web work at scale, from small agencies to the largest hosts and enterprises.

It’s simple and sweet and maybe doesn’t get on everyone’s radar but what I like about this acquisition is its niche nature and potential.

I’m seeing a lot of energy around WordPress tools to help freelancers and agencies to manage projects, clients, etc. The largest examples include MainWP and GoDaddy Pro Hub. As WordPress gets more and more democratized, the idea of WordPress as being central will fall into the background – not in utilization but more and more as an expected platform to be used, for a bad example, think Microsoft Windows or Linux. Those pieces are less relevant and the WordPress “application and services” layers becomes the selling point.
